New arrivals

Of late, I have been on a book coupon redemption spree :-). I bought One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel García Márquez using the Premier bookshop coupon I got for being a finalist in The Second Ruckus Tangdi Quiz conducted by the KQA in April. Other than that, I used up a set of Landmark coupons (gifted to me by my thoughtful colleagues) to buy the following :-

  • Samskara - A Rite for a Dead Man by U R Anantha Murthy (translated from Kannada by A K Ramanujan)
  • Ice-Candy-Man by Bapsi Sidhwa
  • Black Swan Green by David Mitchell
  • A Spot of Bother by Mark Haddon
  • Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman
  • The Hungry Tide by Amitav Ghosh
  • In Xanadu : A Quest by William Dalrymple
  • Butter Chicken in Ludhiana by Pankaj Mishra
  • Sacred Games by Vikram Chandra (900 odd pages of hardbound reading)
  • Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts
  • 2001 : A Space Odyssey by Arthur C Clarke

I had read In Xanadu when I was in college (delightful book, of course). Anyway, one book down won't make much of a difference to my reading backlog ;-).
