Landmark is a dangerous bookshop. Against jace‘s well intentioned advice to leave my credit card behind before entering The Forum, Bala and I foolishly ventured where book-a-holics should fear to tread. I say there should be some sort of statutory warning displayed in places like these – Fantabulous bookshops are injurious to your time and pocket.
Oh well…What’s done is done. I feel better ‘cos Bala and Jace burnt an even bigger hole in their respective pockets! 🙂
In keeping with my current interest in economics, picked up three books that should serve me well for the next month or so.
Small is Beautiful – E.F Schumacher
India’s economy (Some issues and answers) – Shankar Acharya
Vision 2020 – Abdul Kalam and YS Rajan
And as is the norm these days, one fiction to compensate for all this heavy reading. This time around I picked up Umberto Eco’s The Name of The Rose.
So there. I suppose I can now safely say that I am well on my way to lining my bookshelf with a few books I will take quite a while to read. The backlog just keeps increasing. Sigh!
Oh btw, just for the record – What a bookstore!! Beats every other place hollow!
