First up, we received this response from eight year old Abhinav JR from Bengaluru.
Posting a picture with the book The Quest for Paradise by Geronimo Stilton, he wrote: 'The book is about the search of Geronimo for the heart of happiness.'
Next, we have Amogha Raghuvir's favourite book:
'This book is from the series of Nancy Drew Mystery Stories. It features a detective Nancy Drew who meets a former queen of some country abroad who is searching for her missing grandson,' the 12 year old wrote about her entry.
P Rajeev, 41, Bengaluru sent us a picture with his favourite author, Ruskin Bond.
Many years ago a high school kid picked up a book from the dusty shelf of a neighborhood library. And the moving tale of friendship captivated his heart.
Many years later he finally made the trip that he was wanting to for a while. To meet and have a conversation with his favourite author.
"Which of my books do you like most?" the author asked him smilingly.
"The Room on the roof, sir," I replied.
Thank you Ruskin Bond for creating a magical world that I escape into so very often.
Bengaluru-based Malini JR, 40 is fascinated by Murder in Seven Acts by Kalpana Swaminathan.
'Mystery at its cutest and best. Set of 7 delicious mystery Stories,' she described the book.
Palanki Suryanarayana, 75 from Bangalore also picked his favourite.
'If I am exiled to an island for a month with only books of a single author for company, I will choose Bill Bryson,' he wrote.
'His book A Short History of Nearly Everything is a treasure trove containing amazing stories of fantastic characters, quirky adventures and fortuitous discoveries told in a breezily light manner.'
