I stumbled upon Sally Gardner’s I, Coriander by chance. I enjoyed reading it, and I was also glad it didn’t take me as long as I seem to be taking to read most books these days. A few hours well spent, definitely a book I’d encourage you to read.
I enjoyed reading McCarthy’s Bar by Pete McCarthy. I loved and relished the humour throughout. The only downsides were the weird glances I got for snorting into my coffee while reading it in public, and not being able to stop grinning from ear to ear 🙂 I’d definitely recommend reading it.
I stumbled upon Clare Boylan’s Black Baby by chance. It wasn’t a very long read, but I didn’t particularly enjoy it – at the end of the book, I didn’t really know what I’d read.
I really enjoyed ‘The printer’s devil’ by Paul Bajoria. It was fast-paced, and though predictable at times, it proved to be an enjoyable read.
I’m going through a phase of books set in the Orient, and Snow Flower and the secret fan by Lisa See is just that. It was thought-provoking, and I enjoyed the matter-of-fact way of talking about things like foot binding. A pleasant read.
I chanced upon an English translation of T.Janakiraman’s book, and spent a couple of hours immersed in it. It was an interesting read, and made me think and wonder about a lot of things. Definitely worth reading.
I finally finished James Clavell’s Noble House, though I suffered a bit of memory loss owing to have extended the reading over the course of nearly six weeks. Towards the end, I just had to keep reading (both because it was gripping and because I wanted to finish reading it and move on to the next book).
