Went to the 28th Chennai book fair on sunday with friends. As it was evening chennaites avoiding Marina, there was too much crowd than last year. ( It seems the Chennai Open finals was full house on Sunday – now you know why). As usual Mani didn’t buy any books.I bought few Vairamuthu collection. Then bought Dan Brown’s Digital Fortress,Angels & demons and three sheldon books( that i didn’t read ) from the second hand platform books shops outside the college.

Now the books are piling up and I am not getting time to read ( probably I need to take vacation ).

    >Haha i knew u wud say abt de sidney sheldon novels. His novels r really gr8… but i realised that i was not yet ready 4 those books. i liked his “morning, noon n night” which contained very less vulgur. But dis “Sands of time” really made me say no 2 his books. but lot of my frnds n ppl of my age do read his novels. in de mean while im back 2 my old story books. but anyway… i hardly hav time 4 story books dese days.

    >Atlas Shrugged changed my life. I could have avoided all those self-help seminars I took…est,the forum, money & you…etc., had I first read “Atlas Shrugged.” After reading it, I understood how the world works best, and how I fit into that world. No more self-help books for me. Ayn Rand was a brilliant mind and her ideas will live on. Visit the Ayn Rand Institute at http://aynrand.org. Have a happy, productive life, my friend!
