So finally, I get the energy to write something non-cricket related. Or maybe is my inability to sleep the last few nights – wish I could detach the brain for a while.
Book that changed your life: “Rwanda, A Season of Blood” (Fergal Keane) – it opened up a new world.
Book you’ve read more than once: Several. Recently its been “The Namesake” (Jhumpa Lahiri) and “Indian Summers” (John Wright) .
Book you would take to a deserted island : No idea – would probably depend upon what I was reading at the time I left for said island.
Book that made you laugh: All the Bill Brysons, Dave Barrys and Wodehouses.
Book that made you
cry want to kill yourself : “God of Small Things (Arundhati Roy)” – within a page of reading it. Argh.
Book you wish you had written: “The Godfather” (Mario Puzo) – for its ability to make the reader visualize.
Book(s) you wish had never been written: “To kill a Mockingbird” (Harper Lee). Disturbing.
Book(s) you’re currently reading: Nothing – am living on a standard diet of cricket, entourage and mindless TV.
Book you’ve been meaning to read : “Until Proven Innocent” (Stuart Taylor, K.C. Johnson)
Book you have been meaning to finish : Too many have fallen by the wayside – they have been victim of the ridiculously short attention span.
