After A Visit To The Book Fair...

I have 8 new books to add to my Guilt Trip. (Refer to previous post.) >grin<

  1. Tender Is The Night - F. Scott Fitzgerald
  2. A Clockwork Orange - Anthony Burgess (I've already read this, but I bought it today because it was being sold for half the price!)
  3. India - Shashi Tharoor (The man's writing is just unbelievably good. And you know what else? He oozes charisma!)
  4. Magic Seeds - V S Naipaul
  5. Mojar Golpo (A collection of stories by writers like Bankimchandra, Tagore, and others- I have made up my mind to read more Bengali.)
  6. Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman - Haruki Murakami (I have been wanting to try his stuff for a while, finally got around to buying a book.)
  7. The World According To Bertie - Alexander McCall Smith
  8. Twelve Red Herrings - Jeffrey Archer (Again, have read this, but ages back, hence have forgotten most of the stories. Also, someone whacked my copy- so I bought it again.)
And the saddest thing is- what with texts to read for college, I won't be able to touch these anytime soon. >wails<

hurrah, Book Fair.

Will whack some of your books, maybe. Promise to return, though.

Watched the movie Clockwork Orange. Was kind of arbitrary. Shashi Tharoor's way too politically correct and scared to be straightforward...

Murakami is just stunning.

@ Rhea Silvia: I should hope so. :)

@ Rene Lacoste: I adored A Clockwork Orange. One of my all-time favourites. I love Tharoor's writing too. Different points of view, of course.

@ Storyteller: Yeah, so I've heard. I am finally going to get around to trying his stuff.
