Its time to say goodbye to 2010 and hello 2011. The countdown has begun and in just 9 days we will enter a brand new year. So its that time of the year when you sit and jot down lists of resolutions. While i still have to make my list, one of the top resolutions is to revive my reading habits
And then i came across a post by Shilpa Garg about a unique Reading challenge called the South Asian Challenge. This is the brain child of S Krishna, who is aiming to popularize books about South Asians and by South Asians.
Here are a few books i plan to read in this genre:
The lost flamingoes of bombay by Siddharth Dhanvant Shanghvi
Haunting Bombay by Shilpa Agarwal
Saffron Dreams by Shaila Abdullah
Madras on Rainy Days by Shobhan Bantwal
Modern Spice by Monica Bhide
The Music Room by Namita Devidayal
One amazing Thing by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni
The Place of Illusions by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni
Sea of Poppies by Amitav Ghosh
Secret Daughter by Shilpi Somya Gowda
I hope to source these books form Khan market in Delhi, If you too want to join and sign up for this challenge click HERE
Happy Reading and Happy Challenge! Wishing you a wonderful 2011!!
