Getting T(R)agged!!! 

( © : Chakra..I had just Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V'd from his post)

Book tagging virus is on in the blogosphere at the moment. Many Thanks to Chakra who tagged me.

Total Number of Books I Own: Must be about 30-40. I had never thought of making a list of all books that I read..most of my reading comes just like that...I hardly remember the author's name of the book...Only now Iam growing up to noting down the author name and making a list of the books that I read. Also, I use the Library for my reading..not necessarily buying books(ie untill now)

Last few Books I Bought:

  • To Kill a Mocking Bird - Harper Lee(Yeah!. I bought it after a not-so-lovable experience with The Inscrutable Americans..)
  • The Inscrutable Americans -Anurag Mathur
  • Ponniyin Selvan - Amarar Kalki
  • Last Book I was gifted: Oops!!..I don't know why, but people seldom think of gifting me a book...so I am unable to fill in this column.

    Last Book I Read: The Inscrutable Americans - Anurag Mathur (Last week)

    Currently Reading: To Kill a Mocking Bird - Harper Lee.

    Five Books That Mean a Lot to Me:

    All that I read matter a lot to me. Just for the sake of answering, I list 5 books that are on top of my mind this instance.

  • Theivaththin Kural - A collected volume of Acharya's (Chandrasekharendra Saraswathi Swamigal) verses.
  • The Age of Paradox - Charles Handy- Actually, this book would have come first, but for the faith I have in Acharya.
  • The Alchemist - Paulo Coelho.
  • Ponniyin Selvan - Kalki.
  • Selfish Gene - Richard Dawkins.
  • Tag five people and have them do this on their blogs:
    (All you hav to do is, prepare similar stuff and post the same on your blog)

  • reNUka
  • Eroteme
  • Karthik Narayanan Venkatesh a.k.a Mottai Boss
  • Cogito
  • Venkat

  • BTW, the title of the post is not indicative of my mood...it jus was rthymic...that's it to it...I enjoy writing about books...
    Chakra.... that one was for you...coz people might think you ragged me!!..[Not that I dont want them to think that way..but you see..courtesy;-)))]

    @Chakra: Yeah Man!!...That is a hangover from my MBA days(Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V)..Cudnt help it..;-)
    @kaats: Thats great man!!..Getting tagged from many people means more frnds and that makes blogging even more interesting!!
    @Cogito:Yeah!!..Ponniyin Selvan is a timeless classic..no wonder many tamil bloggers share the love for that book.
    @Sat: I am not into that much of Thrillers...But, Once upon a time, I used to read thrillers (mostly Tamizhvaanan's)...I had practically lived with Sangarlal, Myna, Kathirikkai etc..miss them now...of late, I hadnt read many thrillers!!`
