Deepali Agarwal

Staff Writer

Deepali Agarwal has a Master’s in literary linguistics, which means that every person she’s ever known has, at some point, asked her to ‘edit a thing’ for them-- ‘just see if it reads okay?’ She doesn’t mind, because she believes that the world can be fixed one oxford comma at a time. Deepali lives in Delhi, the capital of India, where cows are sacred, but authors and poets exist and write brilliant things. She works as an editor with OUP India’s School ELT division, where she moves apostrophes, looks up pictures of cats, and talks about children’s books for eight hours. The rest of her day is spent reading, thinking about Parks and Recreation, and wondering if there exist jobs for English majors that pay more than peanuts. Twitter: @DeepaliAgarwal_

First of all, *shouts from the rooftops* Litsy (if Goodreads and Instagram had a perfect baby) is now available to Android users! I’ll wait while you guys scramble for your phones.

Now that you’re all on Litsy, let’s get down to it. The app gives you three options when you post about a book: Blurb, Review, or Quote, and I am loving the ‘Quote’ feature very very much, since an excellent quote works as the best sneak-peek book rec for me (and you can simply click ‘Add to Stack’ to add books whose quotes you like to your TBR).
