Tenth class student Soumya Tejam’s keen interest in technology and business, led her to establish “Bookbite”, a subscription box service that sends out a curated package containing a Young Adult novel, short stories by budding novelists, bookish goodies and an exciting online experience. Created to spread the joy of reading, it has grown to become a thriving community of passionate readers and writers. The philosophy behind it was simple - don't make reading a habit, make it a lifestyle.

With recent tie-up with NGO Parikrma Foundation, BookBite is now trying to ensure that for every privileged reader, it also supports an underprivileged reader.
