Books have been recognized as men's best friend in every corner of the world and literature is being celebrated for the kind of effect it has on our culture. Therefore I think Blogchatter's Writfest is a beautiful initiative and celebration of an art form that not just touches everyone's life but makes it worth living for.
Blogchatter's Tagline "Lets Talk About You" says a lot about their beliefs. So this platform does every thing to uplift the community and society as a whole. As you all know multinational giant Amazon has decided to saw off its Indian publishing arm, Westland Books. Blogchatter has taken a commendable initiative to buy these books from the stores and give them as giveaways.
