Congratulations to the winners of BYJU’S ‘One Hobby A Month’ – Reading Contest

Team StoryWeavers|March 5, 2019|

“A writer only begins a book. A reader finishes it.– Samuel Johnson

A fascinating fact about reading books is that they transport the reader to a world of wonder. For only when the reader connects with the characters, they can draw inspiration from them. BYJU’S ‘Reading Contest’ received an overwhelming response. Our inbox was flooded with tons of entries from students telling us about literary characters that taught them a lesson or two about life.

Thank you for sharing your stories. While we received many interesting story entries, we picked the top three based on creativity and storytelling.

Three cheers to the winners,

About the Author

Generic placeholder image
Tanaya Goswami

Books are Tanaya Goswami’s first love and cheesecakes come a close second. Talking about movies, music, calligraphy, politics, and Elon Musk will get you listed under the friends’ section of her diary. Ever since moving on from her job as an English lecturer, she spends her time at BYJU’S crafting stories filled with emotion and sprinkled with sarcasm. Outside of work, she’s either learning something new (French, most recently!) or is curled up with a book and a cup of coffee. She firmly believes that discovering what you don’t know is the key to knowledge and is constantly working towards improving herself. Drop in a line at if you liked her stories, have something nice to say, or if you have compelling ideas to share!
