South Asian Reading Challenge 2011

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!!
