14. Reflecting on July
...and next steps in our journey
Welcome to another edition of this fortnightly newsletter covering all we do at the Project to nudge you to read more, read better.

How July started
On 2nd July, we entered the next stage of Project Bibliotherapy with the launch of 42 Good Reads of the Internet: Volume 2. This zine is our way of curating great finds from the vastness of the internet, 42 at a time.
We hosted a Guided Reading Meditation at Kunzum Bookstore GK2 for fellow readers to mark the zine launch. For an hour, eighteen of us read a selection of 4 Good Reads together, with Nandini and I guiding the way by reading aloud.
Take out sixty minutes from your schedule and experience what we read that day. (Don’t forget to turn off notifications)
How July went
Busy, in a fantastic way :)
