just browsing.

Nothing makes me tingle in anticipation more than having a stack of unread books on my bedside table. After a dinner at Nando’s tonight, with just the right people, the four of us went to Liberty to browse (i think it’s almost a calling in my life). By the way, for anyone who doesn’t know,”browse” in jammie-speak, means a definite “buy”.

And suddenly, a few books later, my Sunday looks brilliant.

  1. it’s the biggest catch 22. you can never have enough books. i hate going to bookstores for simply the reason that i can never leave without coming out broke.

  2. you said it abbas. but i always justify it to books not being an expense but an investment. so far its working in my head πŸ™‚

  3. hey there i can see curious incident of the dog in the night time at the top of your list of books to read….dont bother with it, it is AWFUL!!!! makes out autistic people are retards which they very much are not!

  4. i absolutely agree! Books can make my day so much better. I love reading on rainy days the most. I’m starting a book collection of my own…currently i’m reading The Broker by John Grisham, I’m almost done, it’s a wonderful book. I love going to book stores. Libraries are just not the same! But I only buy the books I really like.

  5. Imagine me jumping up and down and nodding head vigorously.I know1I know!!I luurvve books, the feel of books, liberty books, universal store books, frere hall books, books with tea coloured pages and the smell of colonization,crackling crisp fonts,dog ears-all shapes and sizes.My best dates have been spent in Frere Hall and bookstore vigils.One coming up this weekend.HOpefully going to Isloo (Saeed Book Bank)just for that *does bhangra*

  6. it’s the other way round with me. if i have too many books to read i can’t decide which one to read first and it eventually means i waste a lot of time in decision making :/

  7. The Queen of Subtelities
    Anything by Ameen Malouf
    The shadow of the wind
    The secret life of bees
    Sideways (way better than the movie)
    I have to get abck to work but will send you more suggestions … ooh, the time traveller’s wife.

  8. I liked The Curious Incident… I mean it wasn;t outrageous, but I still liked it. And it gave me insight and newfound respect for autistic people.

  9. hey Jammie..

    Whats “The Curious Incident” about??

    I guess you must’ve read “The Kite Runner” its on my hit list yet to be bought..

    and yeah, try Mr. Old Books alongwith Liberty, you’ll be able to get double the books.. πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

    Books really are an integral part of our lives..

  10. thanks guys for the suggestions. sigh. another trip in the offing me guesses.

    insiya this is the second time youve mentioned the book to me. i MUST get it now. im curious.

    curious incident i havent read yet, but its an interestingly written murder mystery – and thats all should tell you.

    and karachiite- i love mr old books its been my haunt for years. but ahhhhhh the smell and feel of brand new books. *swooons*

  11. I thought Madras on Rainy days was dreadful. Q&A was interesting. Have you tried Jhumpa Lahiri and Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni? You know, we should have a book club, where everyone meets every week — or every other week – at a coffee house and reccomends a book. What do you think??
