Shopping for books in 2014



Last Sunday , on our way  back from Gurgaon, we spotted a quaint shop on M.G road. The quaintness came from the fact that  it had oodles of wooden furniture juxtaposed with an equal number of  glass almirahs groaning under the weight of books. For once the husband didn't have to be nudged, prodded and coaxed into doing some  'shopping' .

An hour later we were done. The shop owner and his assistant staggered out with the pile of books we had settled on. Let me tell you about the treasures I picked up.

 The Young Wives by Olivia Goldsmith
The Greek Villa by Judith Gould
Double Jeopardy by Catherine Coulter
The Judgement of Paris by Ross King
Rising Tide by John M Barry
  Killer Weekend by Ridley Pearson
Maps for a Mortal Moon by Adil Jussawalla
Life after life by Kate Atkinson
The Last Summer by Ann Brashares
The Wonderspot by Melissa Bank
Gandhi and Churchill by Arthur Herman
River of Smoke by Amitav Ghosh
Slap Happy by Thomas Hackett 
Sea of Glory by Nathaniel Philbrick

And 10 more....    Including the whole set of Game of  Thrones  ....

And which one am I reading these days ?  Gandhi and Churchill by Arthur Herman
