Book Tag

July 3rd 2005 in Uncategorized

When I first saw this in Indian Blogosphere, I just felt like going into hiding! I realised that I would put up a sorry figure if I attempt to pick up the meme, and I mailed about it to few book-enthusiasts like Pradeep.

Now that I am formally tagged, let me come out –

Total number of books I own :
Even if I turn the whole bookshelf upside down, the maximum count would be
100. Bookshelf has more things other than books :) I borrow books quite often, and book lenders have a tough time to get their books returned, because I would not return until I finish reading them :D I am also very irregular about reading, sometimes I dont keep the book down till I finish, but some other times, the gap between reads is so much that I often repeat the same pages!!

The last book bought?:
Papillon by Henri Charrière

The last book you read?
Alchemist by Paulo Coelho.

Books I am currently reading:
The Last Frontier by Alistair MacLean

Books that mean a lot to me:
When bad things happen to good people (Harold S. Kushner)- This book answered my many questions.
A brief history of time - Stephen W. Hawking.
Mahapalayana – Translation of Papillon by K P Poornachandra Tejaswi.
Adventure – K P Poornachandra Tejaswi- Transalation of Three singles to Adventure by Gerald Durrell. I would say a must read for those interested in animals and their beautiful world, behaviour.

Vikki,
Oops..saw it now.
DV,
Thanks.

Thanks for others too who posted their tags.


Story is based on the novel by a famous novelist, Saratchandra Chattopadhyay. Movie from the table of Vidhu Vinod Chopra under the direction of Pradeep Sarkar will have mixed expectations. One, we have always appreciated Vidhu Vinod Chopra, second Pradeep Sarkar is a new name.
Intelligent promos increase your curiosity. The cast too includes a newcomer.
Rest […]

Some people have installed a “NOT gate” or “INVERTER” in their mind.
Whatever you say, they would oppose it and reply in negative. I have
carefully studied to see if that has got anything to do with attitude. No it
does not. They simply negate.

I say black they say white. I say right, they say wrong. I say […]
