atTAG of the clones!
Well, It seems that the blogging community is infected by the tag virus oflate. The result of book meme tag virus is simple. A cross section of blogs look similar with posts on the same theme and thus ruining the purpose of blogging, that is, I believe expressing ones own views. But since its a virus I cant question it. So here I am after being tagged by Bhars, Bhasky and Apurv.
Something about my book collection: Thanks largely to my stay in hostels even since I know a person called me. I never had a possession for I moved from one hostel to another, briefly stopping over at a place called home. Nevertheless I managed to collect some books, loose some, steal some, destroy some. ‘I dont know how many books I have’ Dont be mistaken, it is in the sense that ‘I dont remember the count’ rather than ‘I have too many books’.
Some of the books I like most and own are,
– War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy
– Waiting for Mahatma by R K Narayan
– Collection of O. Henry Stories
– Positive Thinking for Adults by Norman Vincent Pele
Last 5 books I read,
Catch 22 – A wonderful book by Jospeph Heller. When I started reading this book I thought “what the f%$@?” But soon I started appreciating the dark comedy and the start reality of yossarians with in every person. The book left a deep impact on me.
Dilbert Principle – is by Scott Adams. One of my all time favorites. Whenever I find time I read this book. Its so simple, straight forward and outrageously funny.
The Monk who Sold his Ferrari – This book has an amazing title. But Robin Sharma hasn’t put that much effort in the writing. Apparently The Monk who Sold his Ferrari is a selfhelp book. But the ‘help’ part is very much complicated unlike simple principles like positive thinking. Didnt like the book.
1984 – is a brilliant piece of work by George Orwell. I liked the use of satire to convince the readers about the stupidities and realities of the world. Must read for anyone who knows reading.
