"A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies." 
-George RR Martin


The book is an oasis in the desert of harsh reality. It is the magical key to our own fantasy landwhere fiction gets life in our imagination and lives in our heart. We laugh with them, we share their sorrow and pain, we desire to fight for them and fight with them. Only a bibliophile knows how it feels to live in another world, they not only stay in the pages of a book, they become real, they become our companion and family. 

No, books don't make us escapists. It brings out the hero in us that was hidden for a long time.Harry Potter taught us loyalty to our friends - helps us fight the inner and outer evil, Katniss Everdeen taught us to have faith in ourselves, Tris Prior taught us that determination makes one stronger in every aspect and Hazel Grace taught us how to live and be happy.  

But there are moments when we feel the authors hidden in us want things to happen in a little different way. So to all those people who fought with Harry, who rebelled with Katniss and Trisand to those who lived with Hazel, this is your chance!

IF Crazy Creatives are presenting to you "Blabbering of a Bibliophile''. Give a call to the hidden author in you and create a few moments with them.

So what are you waiting for? Jump in!
