Books Books Books

- it was the BQC title song I guess

I used to read a lot of books
Started with ( in order )
Nancy Drew : case files
Nancy Drew : mystery stories
Famous Five
The Three Investigators
Hardy Boys
Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys Super mystery
Sweet Valley University Series
Sydney Sheldon
Jeffrey Archer
Harry Potter Series

And then it ended. I started reading some arbit books. You know, the so called best sellers

Some of them were good; like
Atlas Shrugged ( hmmm...it’s for women passionate abt success )
The Alchemist ( everyone who believes in magic should read this one )
Wheels ( I call it the mech engg fairytale )
(wow I cant think of anymore)

Some of them were boring; like
LOTR
Five Point Someone
One Night @ Call centre
Fountain Head
Airport
( these are the books I started reading... but couldn’t finish )

May be I couldn’t finish them coz I grew out of them. I mean, I liked some books, and when the same author writes another in the same style, I didn’t like. May be if I read my fav books again they may not impress me now.


anyway... i wanted to blog this... so that ppl temme what i shud read or why i could possibly not a like abook or something...

  1. ok so since you've asked for advice here it goes (that'll make you more careful next time :P)

    anyway, most of the books you've read are kinda juicy novels not liked for their literary content..
    try something like somerset maugham or even start with douglas adams, james joyce
    you could also try some indian ones...but i'd be careful with them if i were you.

  2. I read Airport too and finished :) I agree it was slai boring in th begn but if u pass that stage, it gets better and the thrill is towards the end.
    But then again, airplane-related thrillers hav always fascinated me. :)
