thanks to rohit, you’re now enjoying this one..
total number of books i own – I stopped counting at age 10. and its really grown since then. even here in aberdeen, i’ve accumulated 20 books in the last 3 months. that was after i got tired of the local library.
that was a little boastful 😛
the last book i bought – ‘digital fortress’ by dan brown. gotta love the offers at asda.
last book i read –
‘the judge’ by steve martini. a decent book, recommended by sabah. somehow, first person detectice/lawyer novels lose some appeal.
realised that i read another after that one.. one i kinda lost track of coz of the latest on the smorgasboard.
anyway, the actual last book i read was ‘good omens’ by teri pratchett and neil gaiman. amazing fun, very irreverent; and basically, a good read 🙂
five books that mean a lot to me –
there are many more, lets go for a random selection.
- the deceiver
- the malory towers series
- zen and the art of motorcycle maintenance
- the dilbert future/the hitchhiker’s guide to the galaxy
- sherlock holmes
the book that got me hooked onto frederick forsythe. at the age of 10. classic stuff.
the first time i read this series from enid blyton, i knew a world that i would never lose. still read this book, every now and then. just to remind me what simple words can do.
there are enouugh layers to this one, for 3 phds. if you can actually understand everything you read here, nirvana is a cinch.
i know thats cheating, but both books fall under the same ideology : that anything’s possible.
pure, logical thinking. as dictated by the great sherlock. if only i could do that.
books that make you cringe –
interesting, but not too many books fall into this category. i guess i’m a classic bibliophile – i love all books, of any kind.
i’ll update if any occur to mind, though i doubt it.
at least not to ‘cringe’ level.
on an unrelated note…
the cyberjunkie and i were talking yesterday. and came across this.
my only take : i knew imbecility was taking over as the latest fashion..
