Straight Angle™: Getting Rotten!!

Getting Rotten!! 

It had been very long since I read a book...I think my brain and the associated mechanisms are getting rotten without a better way other than reading some stuff on the Technicalities of SAP, Oracle, Seibel, TIBCO etc. I need some nice books...
The last book that I read was "City of Djins" by William Dalrymple. A travelogue that it is, the lucid and the simple english that the author uses in the book makes it a nice read..but even that is not the serious book that I need right now. I need some book like "The Age of Paradox"..some book that can really make me crave for it...to make me sit along with it, to forget food, water and every other thing and live with it for atleast a day. I had just now downloaded the e-copy of "The Fountain Head" by Ayn Rand. I don't know how the book would be..but the problem with the e-copy is that, it can be read only with a computer in place..also I am not too sure about the copyright issues of the download....
I need a book that I can take along with me and read at my pace...I need to buy a book...well...till I was in TAPMI, books had never been a problem...all you need to do is go to the Library and you would find books to suit every moment of your mood...from Philosophy to Science, to Romance, to Society and what not...Now, I need to find such a Library...I need to find a place of book.....I need to find it fast.....else I will die of rotten brain.

@Saranyan: The crude part of the entire excercise is that I dont know for how long I would stay in HYD...May be I would have to relocate soon...that makes it all the more difficult to get it lent.
@Sat: The price they quote here for a book- Rs.4/day in lending libraries make me run for cover..I wud rather buy a book...and that made me really buy a book- The Inscrutable Americans...
@Prematura: Thanx for commenting and take care...BTW,it would be nice if u can stick to my real name and not name me further...I already have a different name...its Krish..;-)..Jus kidding...Typo error I guess...or is it???
