He joined Grameen Bank in 2006 as a trainee center manager. His struggle is to increase the readership of the book just like the bank account. Although thousands of information are circulated in the online alleys, the book does not have such a presence. Although all the products were advertised in the online market, there was not much discussion about the book, so this was one of the thoughts of Harun Ar Rashid as well as his profession. He started writing book reviews with that in mind, with the aim of introducing young people to the world through books.

From this thought, the journey of the writer Harun started along with the banker Harun. The path of his new entity with the task of writing reviews and spreading them. He started writing book reviews in every online alley from social media. Has there been any change or impact on his initiative alone?

Enthusiastic after reading my review, many young people of this time have set foot in the world of reading books. The boy who used to spend more time on YouTube is now spending a part of his day reading books. I am interested to read the whole story of the book in the review.’ Thus, by reviewing the book online, Harun has given the book to many people. Now they are addicted to books, this is Aaron’s success.

As a critic of online books, he seems to have no equal. You read a lot, you are encouraged to read. He has already reviewed more than 200 books from home and abroad.

The book ‘Escaponer Tekka’ published during the Corona period also gained wide readership. In addition to his job, his future plans for online advancement with books are also a bit fancy. He is trying to create a district-based online reader forum by creating online readers.
