Insanely Inane Thoughts

If fate doesn't make you laugh, you just don't get the joke.

Tagged

Like Lothario, I had evaded the tags succesfully but I am grateful that it is a book-oriented tag.

Total number of books I own - Let's just stop at a "miniature crosswords".

The last book I bought - It's a book called "Making Love - A Conspiracy of Hearts" by Marius Brill. Don't let the title dissuade you; it's a little gem.

Last book I read - David Baldacci's "Split Second". I read this one after reading the second in the series (Hour Game). It's a good, time-pass book.

Five Books that mean a lot to me -

1. Shantaram - It's a delightful read transporting you to the Bombay of 1980's.

2. A Fine Balance - Another Bombay-based book that speaks about the city during the Emergency. Even though the ending is extremely depressing, it's a very good book.

3. The Kite Runner - About Afghanistan before and after the Soviet incursion; touching and simply outstanding from a debutante.

4. A Corner of a Foreign Field - A book which elucidates cricket through the ages in India; a sport which is very dear to me.

5. Meditations - A book that makes you think; by Marcus Aurelius.

Books that make you cringe -

The Unconsoled - Kazuo Ishiguro. It's a horrible book; left me unconsoled.

An Equal Music - Vikram Seth; maybe it's a book for the musically oriented, but it left me unmoved. It's a pity because I enjoyed "A Suitable Boy" enormously.

And now, I'd be passing it on to-
