729 Have set myself a target of 50 books this year. I had set a target of 30 last year and ended up reading 41 (all right... all right... 11 of them were graphic novels... so?)

Currently reading 3 books but it will be a race between Quantum of Solace: The Complete James Bond Short Stories and The Man Who Knew Too Much for the first book to be finished this year.

729 Of the books that I read this year, although I rate the mystery novel The Moonstone and the classic Animal Farm higher, my book of the year would have to be Steve Jobs. This is because of the sheer delight in going through the life story of one of the most fascinating business personalities in the recent times.

729 I have actually created a shelf called my 'on-hold' shelf. I call them 'on-hold' in the hope that some day I will go back and finish these.

The one book, however, that tops this list for me is Shantaram.

729 Hey, has a Mumbai/Pune meet happened since this thread started? I would be extremely disappointed if I missed out. In fact, if the meet happens in Pune over a weekend, I wouldn't mind coming down.

So, for Mumbai & Pune -

729 I often find myself reading Wodehouse stories again, especially the Jeeves series. The plots are known, the humour in the punch-line is known too but there's just something which makes me laugh all over again.
729 Hey folks, although I'm not very active in the discussions that take place here, I feel you folks have done a wonderful job. Kudos to the moderators.

Let the celebrations begin!

I too had passages from the book as school reading but didn't get round to reading the entire book then. Pretty glad I kept the promise even after all these years. :)

729 Just finished reading 'Treasure Island'. Blown away by the fact that its a seminal work, in the sense that I could even spot characteristics in Long John Silver which eventually evolved itself into bits of Johnny Depp's character of Captain Jack Sparrow in the Pirates of the Caribbean series!!

729 Merry Christmas to everyone. :))

729 I deactivated my Facebook account only a week ago and I don't plan to reactivate for about a year. *laughs* I don't think I'll be able to recognize it when I finally go back.

729 @Jyoti: I guess no one has made it big unless they've received an e-mail from Salman selling a 'Being Human' t-shirt. :P

729 Right, finished reading the book today morning. Darn good sequel (as Acharya has already pointed out in his book review). Also, attended the official book launch yesterday at Landmark, Phoenix Mills. Good interactive session. Amish pointed out quite a few interesting things about his books and the philosophy / thoughts which went into the making of it.

I have only read Bengali translations. You might give Parineeta and Devdas a try. Also, the Feluda stories by Satyajit Ray.
