Description

Kitabi Karwan (or KK) was born out a desire to truly fulfil every bookworm's desire to seek genuine engagement and discussions about books, and authors, and writers, and all other related creative personnel associated with the process. Here, we don't talk about ratings nor do we analyse or review books. We discuss them, what they made us feel. We talk about how the writer became what they are today, how did they write this piece, and of course, who and what they end up reading.
Regardless of whether you're a lifelong bibliophile or just starting your karwan with books, do give this a whirl!
