OT Update

I have slightly revised the list of books that I would be reading for the Orbis Terrarum Challenge. The full and final list is:

1) Eleven Minutes – Paulo Coelho (Brazil)

2) Mahashweta – Sudha Murty (India)

3) The bridge across forever – Richard Bach (USA)

4) The kite runner – Khaled Hosseini (Afghanistan)

5) PS: I love you – Cecelia Ahern (Ireland)

6) Purple Hibiscus – Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie ( Nigeria)

7) Aunts aren’t gentlemen – PG Wodehouse (England)

8 ) Holy Cow! – Sarah McDonald (Australia)

9) Memories of my melancholy whores – Gabriel Garcia Marquez (Colombia)

I am done with the ones marked in red. Currently, I am enjoying reading ‘Purple Hibiscus’.

I hope to stick to this list, and I really, really hope to finish the challenge on time.

    I finished ‘New Moon’ and am having Reader’s Block at the moment 😀

    hmm.. how was the book? its the sequel to ‘twilight’.. right?

  7. I kinda like to see the ‘Reading Ramana’ label still on in all your posts. 😉

    he he…

    Kidding :-), but hey, that’s a neat list if there was any. Thanks, reminded me to pick a book or two myself..

    thanks. that’s nice… join the club of book lovers. 🙂

  8. Funny you should say that, when actually I should be saying that to you…(you know, at the cost of sounding vain and all, I think I got into the habit of reading sometime in ’84)..how old were you then? 😉 heheh, kidding again. Thanks.. Take care..

    LOL.. i was 2 years old at that time.. but i was listening to stories all right back then at that young age 😉
    nice to meet another book lover… welcome!

    I’ve got Aunts aren’t gentlemen from a long time. But since I haven’t read Wodehouse before, I am quite doubtful if I ll follow it. Is it a continuation of sorts?

    hmm… i haven’t read much of wodehouse either, so probably i am not the best person to answer u… but will still try… 🙂 wodehouse has created several memorable character sets in his writer life, one of them being Bertie Wooster and his butler Jeeves. wodehouse has written several books on each of these character sets. Aunts aren’t gentleman is one of the books in the Bertie-Jeeves series. i don’t think it is a continuation of any other book, but it is one of the many books in the series. it is a story in itself, but maybe u will find parts that co-relate to parts of other books in the same series…

  11. Hmm…I was 11. 🙂

    he he…
