Day 23: A Book I Wanted To Read For A Long Time But Still Haven’t

There are LOTS of books that I have wanted to read for a long time, but still haven't gotten around to. This is especially true for a person like me - who buys books obsessively without ever thinking when I shall find time to read them! 
And while my shelves pile up with books that lie untouched for months on end (except for the occasional cleaning - I'm very particular that way!), I'm not sure why I choose this book over others (perhaps more-deserving candidates like Sophie's Choice, The Book Thief or even Point Counter Point.) 
Maybe because I fell in love with Marquez's writing right afte Love In The Time Of Cholera and therefore felt the need to explore further, and maybe because this book's title is just so intriguing, making you want to delve deeper... I shall really have to get down to this one soon!

I was in a similar situation. I finally read it a few months ago. Same thing with Book Thief, which I also recently read.

Haha, this book has stayed unread with me as well for near about a few years. Seems like it has a quite frequent tendency to do so.

@ Sambit: How did you like it? And The Book Thief?

@ Monidipa: Haha! Perhaps.
