    Hi Gayathri,

    I am not exactly a new reader. Used to read a lot during my school and college days. But somehow it reduced later. Priorities seem to have changed in that regards.

    I continued being regular only with newspaper and certain magazines.

    But since last year or so, I find myself slowly limping back to my old habit. Recently I read "The monk who sold his ferrari" (Robin Sharma), and "The great Indian novel" (Shashi Tharoor).

    Now I have two in hand- Lynsay Sands, "The Chase"
    and Janet Evanovich's Plum Lovin'.

    I somehow find myself liking autobiographies more then novels :crazy.

    Anyways hope to keep this interest alive.

    Bye

    Hi Friends,
    I was a good reader at my school days. Somehow my reading got slow down after my college. After marriage, I just had time to read magazines.

    But slowly I am interested in books again.
    I can say Indus ladies have brought back my interest in books. When I joined I could see lots of eBooks here. Book Club,Book Challenge and Reviews kindled my book interest back. First I started to read,

    Two States - By Chetan Bhagat, then
    Girls Of Riyadh - By Rajaa Alsanea
    Veronica Decides To Die - Paulo Coelho
    Now I have started to read 2 books at a time. At present I am reading a Tamil book,
    Miss Radha - By Kothamangalam Subbu and Sophie Kinsella's Shopaholic series. I read leisurely and slowly.

    Hope my Interest continues. Glad to join you all.
    Bye.

    Hiya !

    I have been in IL long enough to skim through some of the threads in this forum but never actively participated in any.:bonk

    Like Saras , I was also a voracious reader back in my college days but now I do not find much time to read a novel.Even if I start one rarely do I finish it.Sometimes reading leisurely is the greatest luxury one can think of in these modern times.

    I must admit that this forum has rekindled my passion to read since last month.So I have borrowed some books from the library.Well, what am I reading now.I have Chambers Myths and Mysteries, Mysteries in Ancient and Early History by Michael Baigent ,The Unexplained by Jenny Randles.That is me and my interest in the paranormal world ! :crazy

    Hai,
    i like to read tamil novels which has good lovable endings. From my school days i used to read books and write imaginative stories. But when i gone to college it got reduced due to my studies and used to hear stories from my friends. Now i got more free hours so i started it again. I hope you guys help me find good novels.

    With regards,
    saagini.
