Disha Gursahaney wants you to read through this pandemic and while you are doing it, make it for a cause. Through her Instagram handle (@dishdashdishoom), Disha sells pre-loved books to raise money for COVID-19 relief by donating the amount you have spent to buy the book(s). We got ourselves two pre-loved books -- Dictionary of Phrase & Fable and The Spiderwick Chronicles -- during the sale. She's so far raised and donated INR 3,60,000 to various organisations and fundraisers such as Mission Oxygen, Coimbatore Covid Aid, Ketto, Milaap, Ashodaya Samithi, Pinklist India, and Give India. And how many books has she sold? A whopping 1700+ and counting.
You can DM her on Instagram to buy any of the books that she has curated. The link in bio on her Instagram profile leads you to two links -- one with the list of books that are currently available for purchase and the other where she's listed out all the organisations she's donated and the amount donated. She currently has over 150+ books available for purchase. We spotted titles such as A Feast For Crows by George. R.R Martin, The Fourth Hand by John Irving, and The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford by Ron Hansen.
