Tagged along …

I think I should dedicate this blog to tags; this is my third consecutive post on tags!


This time it’s Arun. He has asked to jot down three (just three!) of my favourite books. Tough, I would say.

Ok, here it goes, with due apologies to my all other favourite books …


1. The Pillars of the Earth, Ken Follet

2. Water for Elephants, Sara Gruen
3. The Hungry Tide, Amitav Ghosh Should I pass on this difficult tag? Nah! Arun, sorry for that. :-)

Haaa at last! You know what, even yesterday I came here to see whether you finished it or not. And then I thought of complaining, but there was no one to complain to ha ha ha. Nice. Yup, it's an extremely tough one, I know that. And I didn't read any of them to have a say about your choice. Have a great time.

Hello. Think I need to thank you. One of my friend, whom I met in orkut this month last year had given me 'Roots' by Alex Haley when I met her for the first time in last February. I was so moved by that work that it became one of my favourite books. I had just wanted to present her with a book that equals or almost equals the intensity of 'Roots'. Now, though a good reader, she hadn't read 'Roots', she presented it to me as one of her friends suggested it. Wondering what am I aariving at? I was so fascinated by your 'all time 3'. Except Amitav Ghosh, I'd never heard about any of the other authors.(I'm not a good reader). This time when I had been to Bangalore, I was already decided to give her 'Dr.Zhivago' another of my favourite, but I was not just happy with that. I had wanted one more, and the criterion was one that I didn't read. And you know which one I went for? "Pillars of the Earth". I'd no struugle to find it. Thank you. I'm in search for 'Marx in Soho' by Howard Zinn. Any idea where I can get a copy. Thank You very much for helping me choose "Pillars...

ohh that's cool!

Wasn't that (to get to know about unheard-of authors) your reason for starting the tag? :-)
After reading Pillars of the Earth only I started reading other Ken Follet books. But others do not come anywhere near 'Pllars ...".

About 'Marx in Soho' - it must be available in Landmark (my favourite haunt when I was in Chennai). I checked their website, it's listed there. :-)
