The Book Club Tag

What's in a book?

In a book is an entirely distinct and living world that can move and fascinate us to no end. When it’s a very good book, it is a kind of world that I joyously venture into every time I leaf through the pages.

Number of books on the shelves: I buy so selectively when it comes to books so over the years, I haven’t piled up a mountain of such. But including my law books, my collection could perhaps fill one huge wooden cabinet.

Those that I own or bought: Ninety percent of my books are bought while about eight percent of them were given as gifts or tokens. The rest (about two percent) are those that I just forgot to return and still remained in my possession. To give you a hint about the kind of materials I read, here is a listing of some of my books:

Crime And Punishment by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
The Death of Ivan Illych by Alexander Tolstoy
Interview With A Vampire by Anne Rice
The Prince of Tides by Pat Conroy
The Ground Beneath Her Feet by S. Rushdie
The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan
Finnegan’s Week by Joseph Wambaugh
Get Shorty by Elmore Leonard
Angela’s Ashes by Frank McCourt
The Color Purple by Alice Walker
The Partner by John Grisham
Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain
The Thorn Birds by Colleen McCollough
Primary Colors by Anonymous

Last few books that I bought:

The Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren
The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown
Angels and Demons by Dan Brown

Book that I'm reading now:


The Norton Anthology of World Literature

Last few books read: The Joy Luck Club. I have just finished re-reading this one. I always find time once in a while to do second readings of books that had affected me most in the past since upon second reading, there are aspects of the story that I have overlook on first reading but makes wonderful and sometime perfect sense upon second reading.
