tag, i'm it.

yipppeeeee!!! i got tagged. and by two people. thanks gati and mangs. i am feeling dreadfully proud of myself. anyway, i think i should actually go ahead and play the game. here i go!

Total number of books owned: exactly 72. i counted. i am really taking this seriously.

Last book bought: i ordered harry potter and the half-blood prince yesterday. i am dying for it to come out so i can find out who dies this time (i bet its ron). the last book i physically bought was he's just not that into you by greg behrendt. very popular book these days. i picked mine up while waiting at a checkout line, because everyone i know has read it.

Last book read: the same one. it was fun timepass reading, but not memorable. before that i read angels and demons by dan brown. much better, and i liked it more than da vinci code (which i didnt like). right now i'm half way through reading lolita in teheran, which is much heavier. i need to renew it from the library tomorrow.

Five books that mean a lot: nancy drew and the mysterious letter by caroline keene; the lord of the rings - the return of the king by tolkein; the second sex by simone de beauvoir; on lies, secrets and silence by adrienne rich; harry potter and the prisoner of azqaban by rowling.

these are the first, the favourite, the one that most changed my views, the one that touched me the most, and the one i had the most fun reading. thats my list of five.

now i have to tag some people. i dont know who are left, so i am tagging moongphalli, table mannered and thalassa mikra. also i think i will tag white templar and satchisgod, so guys, you're it now.

    "u dont know Tag??", cried wide-eyed little Krishna. It was blasphemy. He couldn't take it.
    It was ok if cousin Sparsh had a thick desi accent and was equally clueless handling one of the Mario brothers. He could set aside such critical shortcomings out of family love.
    But to not know Tag, it was too much for his little protected soul. God bless him.
    He 'tags' me quietly everytime we meet with a snicker on his face.
    O Alienation, O Humiliation. I want to go back to India.

    I'm glad there's someone else who didn't like The Da Vinci Code. But considering it's been on the Amazon bestseller list for, I dunno, the last two bloody years, I think we're definitely in the minority.

    So you've been tagged, you've had a break. Now don't you have a duty to your reading public? Why would we take the trouble of linking a dormant site?

    Waiting ...
