New Year, New Challenges & New Books!!

Another new year dawns and I was cheering with skepticism [old habits die hard...] the devil part of me whispering in the corner of my fuzzy brain - are you sure? are you sure? 

Well, yes I am sure - for the most part that is. This year brings with it a new job and a new house [both deals to materialize in Feb - yay] and well of course new BOOKS!

The year has started with "The Great Indian Novel" and its a wonderful book so far - I will be reviewing it shortly - and I couldnt have asked for a better start to the year. I ordered a book yesterday from FlipKart - the "Fast Food Nation" - my first food related book which I am very excited to get my hands on  so that I can devour it at the earliest. Then probably it will be one of my all time favorites - "To Kill a Mocking Bird" - yes I am going to re-read it, the book deserves it. One of the books that has caught my attention during my long hours spent on browsing is "At Home" by Bill Bryson, the quirky travel writer and going by the reviews it should be an interesting read - BUT for the price - its an imported edition here and its expensive - and as much as I like, no love books, there is a point where I draw the line - will probably wait for the paperback indian release of the book...sigh.

And of course - the Bhagawad Gita - that is a challenge that I have to meet this year - just wondering if I have taken more than I can chew? [aarghh there the devil in me goes again..]

But for now let me toast to 2012 - many books to go, many promises to keep....
