The kind of shopping I like..

October 1, 2008

These have been the recent additions to my library.

The only one I have finished till now is “Stick to cartoons, Monkey Brain” and  I was a tad disappointed with this non-Dilbert book of Scott Adams.It was definitely not a laugh-a-line book like the other three Scott Adams books that I have read till now.In fact it was more like a blog. 😉

I have started reading Such a long Journey and I feel, no I am positive,that by the end of this book, Rohinton Mistry will dislodge Amitav Ghosh to become my favourite Indian writer. I have till now read ‘A Fine Balance‘,’Family Matters’, and Tales From Firozsha Baag‘ and have since been recommending them to everyone.

But then I am yet to start with the Sea of Poppies.Amitav Ghosh will always be a personal favourite because of Calcutta Chromosome. The character of Tridib is one of the most endearing fictional character for me.The fact that I bought a hard cover shows in what high esteem  I hold Amitav Ghosh. Or that I couldn’t wait any longer ,especially after the Booker nomination.

Notice how I ignore the other two books. Principles of Corporate Finance is something I have to read and hence I am pretty sure it will be soon be collecting dust. As for The New New Thing, well, I got it for a steal.. I guess not many are buying books on finance now!! .I can only hope it is as good as the Liar’s Poker.

    Tales from Firozsha Baag is one of my favorites too.. did I read it when I was vegetating at your house last year?
    Me : Yups.If your daughter grows up to be an intellectual you have only me to thank.

    Rohinton Mistry is my absolute favourite. But whenever I read his books, I get a very bad case of the blues.
    Me : Yes , one tends to get engulfed in the entire community he creates as he takes you through their trials and tribulations
