IBH said...

Chins, i think there is a prob here :) I wanted u to tag ur hoo!aiyoo neraya confusion confusion!
anyways thanks for honoring the tag!

Chez said...

By the way i gather from this post, I see u just lose interest as soon as u r half way thru the pages.

Adding to that is the fact that u have chosen to read all those books that need quite some patience as they tend to leave u lost somewhere in the middle. unless u turn back the pages again and again u'll never know where u are!

God of small things is a masterpiece. only if we read patiently, we'll feel the ecstacy behind her narration.

Ah, here comes TinTin and Amar Chitra katha.. as Sriram said, Why not Asterix? What a fun it was to read them those days!!!

Chinmayi Sripada /Chinmayee said...

I like asterix too.. But i could mention only three!! I have had tummy-clutching moments of laughter reading the crass gaelic jokes .. yup i love them actually

Chinmayi Sripada /Chinmayee said...

Oh sorry IBH but I still dont get you! Tag my list of what?

Gangadhar said...

Just dropped in... to say "Gud Morning,Chinmayi"..
Nice list from your side....I like to read conversational fiction(like John Grisham's works} rather than descriptive ones..

Chez said...

Jimmy, the confusion is,

you have to put ur own list of books based on ur own collection. u finished off commenting on just what books the person (who had tagged u) had listed. u neednt comment on them.. u can come up with a list of books u have read and which u have found very interesting.

Anyway, we found that interesting too.

Anjali said...
