Accepting Book for Reviews

The month of February has been super busy for me. At the start, I got involved in the launch of my ebook, A Blogger’s Manifesto (if you remember this post on the launch day). Of course, you do remember. I asked you guys to participate in helping me choose a book cover?

Nonetheless, just after launching my ebook, I started working on revamping this book blog (almost) from scratch and shifted its nitty-gritty to its own home with a link of its own. It is a time consuming, tedious work in transferring all the blog posts and then selecting a theme, finding the right plugins and organization in somewhat a new manner. You might be noticing a lot of changes here. The last of them have happened over the weekend, and I do not want to trouble you anymore with changing the UI.

Just want to drop a line about me being on Instagram as @amanhimselfreads. I will be sharing lots of content on books and motivate you to write more blog posts on your blog. If you are on Instagram, let us connect.

Some say happiness is a state of mind. Many believe in that. I do too. It indeed is a state of mind but we all wonder how to achieve that state of mind, don’t we?

The happiness of an individual is reflected by aspects that are prior to us mortals. These aspects fall under few different criteria and a common ground between them is where the state of happiness lies. It is not something that is achievable because there is nothing to achieve. It is a state of mind that takes some practice and wilful mindfulness on daily basis. Thus, this is the message of Yogesh Chabria, a world-renowned leader in the field of human potential, new book: Succeed The Happionaire Way.
