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 😀 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.
