Books, books and more books

Read in 2005. Beside faint bedside lamps, in dimly lit trains, while waiting for buses, while walking down a deserted road, in parks, in cabs and everywhere one can possibly and not, read.

2. Nine stories- Salinger
3. Timepass by Protima Bedi
4. Chocolat- Joanne Harris
5. Coastliners- Joanne Harris
6. 5 quarters of the orange- Joanne Harris

13. Cuba and the night- Pico Iyer
14. The myth of Sisyphus- Albert Camus
15. Street of Paris- Balzac

Loads of Agatha Christies, Williams, and nameless others who made me smile, laugh and throw the book away with disgust.

looks like a nice list, I havent read even one of them, so "looks like" is all I can say :). But 27 books means you are an avid reader, i think.
