Want of Books

I feel sad for leaving behind in Calcutta a few good books that I could do with right now.

Having undergone a surgery last Saturday (for correction of myopia; usually referred to as laser surgery; for all concerned, I m fine now) I was to stay away from TV and computer as much as I can and of course not go out too much to avoid dust for a few days. This led me to read books.

I have read three books and am reading my fourth. Hence I have 3 reviews (my sorta reviews I mean) pending.

But the books I have left with me now are not that attractive to me and I wish I brought India After Gandhi with me to Hyd because I can’t think of a better time to read it than now since it is very long and boring but worth the read and I would probably never get this kind of time to sit down and read.

Or maybe I should have brought with me “The Case of the Exploding Mangoes”.

It’s just that I m reading “The Subtle Knife” by Philip Pullman. It is the 2nd book in a trilogy. I have the 3rd book but not the 1st. It seems a little interesting but definitely childish!
