A Million Words

A new house, an early morning, time to kill, stuff to unpack, open the first carton, books jump out, stack the books, arrange in shelf, leave the categorization for later, whip out the camera, shoot!

Marching Ahead

    i think you can start a alpha version of ‘Rent a Book’ Business 😛

    So many books! Have you read ‘all’ of them?

    I’m still struggling to finish the last book I bought (Templar Legacy) 😦

    Rama, the bottom right book is the RD compilation of four abridged novels 🙂

    obelix, that would be my personal library 😛

    kiran, haha, but I have learned not to lend books the harder way – by having people not returning them 🙂

    Chittaranjan, not all but most of them. Just 3-4 would be unread…

    skp, 😀

    Sangfroid, thanks dude 🙂

    Utkarsh, dude this is my home! 😀

    alosh, 🙂

    Sukesh, not by a long long way… you should see the bookshelf of my landlord… my collection is nothing…

    hey, nice collection of books … & nice pic
    i could notice books by quite a few of my fav. authors – Forsyth, Grisham, Sheldon, Archer.
    and since its not a work of fiction, i am still contemplating whether to read “The Innocent Man” – what do you say ?
    – cheers, Taks 🙂

    Thats more than a million words! 😛
    The math is simple. There are 50 odd books, 350 pages per book on an average & roughly 250 words per page. Thats more than a million.

    Excellent that you have the reading habit while I am still at it inculcating.

    i wish we were neighbors 😀

    I’ve enjoyed reading your book reviews! I’m always looking for a good book. . . but of course, a great book to me may only be a fair book to another. 😉

    Have you read any of these books?
    (Of course, I liked all of them; not sure that you would, but I grew curious).

    ‘Memoirs of a Geisha’ by Arthur Golden

    The Canterbury Papers by Judith Koll Healey

    The Illuminator by Brenda-Rickman Vantrease

    The Good Women of China : Hidden Voices by Xinran Xue

    They Poured Fire on Us From the Sky: The Story of Three Lost Boys from Sudan by Benjamin Ajak (Author), Benson Deng (Author), Alephonsian Deng (Author), Judy Bernstein (Author)

    God Grew Tired of Us: A Memoir by John Bul Dau (Author), Michael S. Sweeney (Author)

    Truly, too many books, too little time…

    Taks, I’d recommend “The Innocent Man”, but be aware it is not meant for light reading 🙂

    asr, nice calculations dude 😛

    Sreejith, dude if we were neighbours, we’d have been playing CS/Quake non-stop 😀

    Sarah, thanks for the praise… and somehow, of all the books that you have mentioned, I have not read any of them!!!
