I have been tagged by Daedalus and it is my turn to share information with the blog world. Before I do so I would strongly recommend anyone reading this blog to visit her blog site. Her site is an information highway and a great way to keep in touch with current US policies and politics.
Books I own: In India: I have not counted
In the US: 10+ (I have become a very poor reader of late)
Last book I bought: Deception point by Dan Brown, have not finished reading it as yet.
Five books that mean a lot to me: It is very difficult for me to just think of 5 books but I will try my best to mix nonfiction and fiction.
THE BLIND WATCH MAKER by Richard Dawkins:
It is a book that argues for Darwin’s theory of Evolution and strongly argues against intelligent design. I wonder if there would be any more believers of the intelligent design theory if people read and understood this book. This book was recommended to me by my mentor during my master’s degree in Microbiology. It helped me get a new perspective on evolution.
MY LIFE by Bill Clinton:
It is one autobiography that I enjoyed reading. Clinton is an awesome writer and so is his wife a must read for all commoners like me.
The Foundation Series and Robot series by Isaac Asimov:
A must read for any science fiction fan. These books are incomparable to any other science fiction books for their content (I have already introduced Asimov in my inaugural blog).
ALL THINGS BRIGHT AND BEAUTIFUL by James Herriot:
This book just took me by surprise an amazingly well written book, a leisurely read.
GREAT EXPECTATIONS by Charles Dickens:
There is something eerily romantic about this classic. I have read most of the classics but none of them have made me reread them as much as this one. A classic for all times and ages.
I tag: Ganesh, Srikanth, Senthil, Chinmayi, Desikan, Praveen, Arvind and Prabz
p.s. I also tag ceremonial soup, I just got a chance to read his blog and its very interesting.
