ki kando. if it's any consolation, i've only read 3 of the books you've mentioned. since Beowulf is causing much distress, and if you don't read it, PB will turn up in your dreams as grendel's mother - i suggest you begin by reading jerome k jerome in bits.

Shantaram shantaram shantaram
Sought it
Bought it
It's lying on the bed
All done and said
Me is busy..me is dizzy
And Shanta lazing in 'araam'.

:( :( :(

i just finished reading 9 masala fiction novels back to back.
still have 'the google story' lying around with a bookmark :(

by the way, read 'the afghan' by freddie forsyth. it has the class of 'the day of the jackal' and the pace of da vinci code...
i finished it in one monday night when i made the mistake of 'glancing' through the first few pages to get the plot...

Some of those books are pretty pathetic too, give them a miss.

And please - if the person who produce that Himesh-Robindronath quote has blog, lead us to it!

ahhh. i have to read up anglo saxon poetry and beowulf too. along with other painful things. this is what we're being bombarded with in the beginning of our course. i wonder how people survive and sustain interest.

Bim, I just looked at your post again, and you do NOT know how good you've got it...

I'm sitting here in the middle of the morning looking through blogs I've seen before because I've just finished the chapter on carcinomas of the breast in the course of which there were a great many illustrations that made me wish I hadnt had breakfast...
