3. Most Disappointing Book of 2010?
All the ones in my first answer.
Roald Dahl (I’m in love with his books!)
Helene Hanff (I really adored her witty letters)
Elizabeth Noble (I’ve ordered more of her books, and can’t wait to start reading them)
Thrity Umrigar (Her The Space Between Us was tragic, but I still loved her writing style)
8. Most hilarious read of 2010?
Haven’t really read comedy in the past year, but I would say Malgudi Schooldays made me laugh. Also, Bridget Jones – The Edge Of Reason. It was too chick-lit for my taste (the kind I’ve grown out of), but I can’t deny that it was funny.

14. Book that had the greatest impact on you in 2010?
Things I Want My Daughters To Know – It forced me to think about the little things I would want my loved ones to know after my death, and talk to them about it, much to their disapproval. I’m glad I did that, though, for life is very unpredictable and one never knows.
84, Charing Cross Road – It forced me to start writing letters and surprise notes again, after years.
Jonathan Livingston Seagull – It made me more comfortable with being ‘uniquely’ me.
