To the Indus and Beyond

I’m off to India for a couple of weeks as I’ve been shortlisted for the British Council’s UK Young Publishing Entrepreneur of the Year Award 2009 – in part for my work on Bookkake.

While I hope to find much of interest to Bookkake readers there – like these beautiful carvings from the Khajuraho temple complex which I saw last time I was in India, in 2000 – I probably won’t be able to blog often, if at all, so please bear with me until normal service resumes, some time after the 4th of February. There may also be slight delays in the delivery of books ordered direct from the site, but these will be kept to a minimum.

If any Bookkake readers have suggestions for any books, locations or people I should seek out while I’m there, I’d love to hear them. I’ll be at the Jaipur Literary Festival and the Kholkata Book Fair, as well as meeting people from Zubaan Books, Osian’s, the IPDA, HarperCollins India, and a bunch of others. I’m very much looking forward to it.
