List of Books to Read…

10 Jun

The list of books I have to finish reading is growing. I urgently need to take some quality time out to finish reading them and add them to the list of books I have read.

The first book to add to the list is the much acclaimed bestseller Shantaram by Gregory David Robers which I have been trying to read from the last few months. Fortunately spotted the book with one of my senior colleagues who readily agreed to lend the book to me. The next book to join the list is Einsten: His Life and Universe by Walter Isaacson which my dear friend Ram thought would be an ideal birthday gift (thank you Ram).

A much needed and appreciated decision by my employer ensured that we (Akhil and I) missed the books and of course the superb coffee at Brio in Crossword. Finally we found the time this Saturday to pay a visit to our favourite place and we did cover up for not visiting the bookstore in the month of May.

Akhil went on an overdrive this time picking up more than six books. And as part of the relief efforts from my side I took on the responsibility of reading two books: Everybody loves a good drought by P Sainath and Accidents like love & marriage by Jaishree Misra. And here is the growing list of books that I need to finish reading at the earliest.

  • Measuring the World by Daniel Kehlmann
  • Unrational Leadership by Charles Fleetham
  • The Fifth Discipline by Peter M Senge
  • Inevitable Ilusions by Piatelli Palmarini
  • Being Indian by Pavan K Varma
  • The Dogs of Justice by Nina Sibal
  • Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts
  • Einstein: His Life and Universe by Walter Isaacson
  • Everybody loves a good drought by P Sainath
  • Accidents like love & marriage by Jaishree Misra

    You returned Measuring the World half read…

    My ‘to be read’ list is much longer than yours.

    Why don’t you put up a list then? Probably I can pick up a few books from you to read or add to my list.
