Getting booked this week!

Time really flies! No matter how much I try being regular on my blog, “time” just beats me! It smuggles away seconds and minutes, and even days. Anyways, that’s not the point. I don’t have a book to review right now, because I am still reading it. It will take atleast 2 more days. By the way, I am reading “Butter Chicken in Ludhiana by Pankaj Mishra”. Quite an interesting book, though a bit slow in few places but worth it. It is next on my review list.

This weekend, I had an overwhelming urge to buy atleast 10 books! First it took me hours to shortlist a few after reading lots and lots of reviews. So, I was not able to buy them during the weekend, but well, I have bought it yesterday! I just love the moment when I receive them through courrier. I cannot define the joy!

Here are the books that I bought:

1. Witness the Night by Kishwar Desai
 2. Deaf Heaven by Pinki Virani

3. Doordarshan Days by Bhaskar Ghose

4. Gandhi: Naked Ambition by Jad Adams

5. Harilal Gandhi: A Life by by Chandulal B. Dalal

6. If I am Missing or Dead by Janine Latus

7. Leela : A Patchwork Life by Leela Naidu & Jerry Pinto

8. Open: An Autobiography by Andre Agassi

9. The Dancing Girls Of Lahore by Louise Brown

10. The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger

I am majorly into Non-Fiction these days. I keep on hunting for different kinds of good non-fiction reads. Most of the above books are through Outlook reviews. I also like The Hindu Book reviews.


  1. What a great list of books. I've read If I Am Missing Or Dead and The Time Traveler's Wife, I really hope you love them, and all your other books!

  2. i started reading deaf heaven & chucked it. hope you like it. and of the last book is awesome :) happy reading!

  3. Thanks both of you. I'm already in love of these, and dying to finish the current one that I'm readng. So, I can start one of these.

    I have Pinki Virani's 3 books, so I bought this one also. Hope I like it! Will surely review these!

  4. Hey , Nice list of books . Need to ask whether the online books delivery would really help , i mean , if the book's print is not good or the pages torn etc etc .. Want to know the feedback frm ur side as I think you've ordered loads of books through online!

  5. Hi, it hasn’t happened to me so far. These are very professional websites, serious about repeat customers otherwise they can’t do business for long. I always check the rates in following websites, and order from wherever cheapest:
    > (usually cheapest rates)
    > (usually very fast, good customer service, very good rates)
    > www.infibeam.ccom (so far haven’t ordered anything, but they are very competitive. I am open to them also)
    > (very good for rare, out-of-print books or international titles, as people buy and sell here, so you can come across a book you have been hunting for ages)
    I don’t think you should have any issues. Enjoy the huge discounts available online!

  6. very nice blog. Love to read few of the book reviews, will be waiting for more reviews. Following your blog.
