Current Bookshelf

Hardly a day goes by when I don't read at least few pages from a book. 

... apart from what "I have to" read (finance books and research papers)... here is the list of books that I read in last few years... (July 2010 onwards, doesn't include books that are yet to be marked as read)  ...a sequence of three English and then three Hindi books - the way I prefer to read. The top one is either in my bag or in my hand these days. * after a book name suggests that, while reading that book, I had to stop after every few lines just to say - "Wow !"(of course that just shows my taste and doesn't mean it is better than others)
