The inspiration to write this post was derived from a take on this image by Bookmammal Musings. Do check out her post too !
If you go through my bookshelf, chances are very high that I have read every murder mystery or thriller title on there. I don’t let those drift away – always first priority !
Second set of books I would have definitely read in a hurry are my cartoon collections – Calvin and Hobbes and R K Laxman
INTENDING TO READ
Many old classics that are in the house (Rebecca, Father Brown series, Autobiographies)
I have recently bought some new books like Em and the Big Hoom
The Collected Works of O.Henry – although I love the author I have never got around to reading all his short stories (what a contradiction !)
PRETEND I’VE READ
Honestly, none. I don’t want to get caught lying – I’ve seen it happen to others and I don’t want to go there !
SAVING FOR WHEN I HAVE MORE TIME
Glimpses of World History by Jawaharlal Nehru – 1155 pages (!)
Back to Basics, a JC Kumarappa Reader (my post)
WILL NEVER READ
Leaves of Grass by Walt Whitman. I know its on several lists and that its quite scandalous for a self-proclaimed bookworm to say I won’t read it but at least give me marks for honesty here !
PURELY FOR SHOW
I don’t have any for show right now but I could get some of mother’s books and put them up 😉 Like The Lying Stones of Marrakech – take that for show !
READ BUT CAN’T REMEMBER A SINGLE THING !
Oh there are plenty for this – books by Erle Stanley Gardner, James Hadley Chase, Colin Forbes, Ken Follett…….. I know I have read them and that most of them have something to do with spies,etc but apart from that, nothing !
WISH I HADN’T READ
This year I’m wishing I didn’t read Four Corners of Night (my review).
That is my honest take on a lovely illustration ! Link your post in the comments or you can even leave your answers in the comments 🙂
