Book List

I'm off to Hawaii for a week! Most of me is really looking forward to it...god knows I need some sunshine to thaw out the frozen bones!! The other part is dreading the flights, plane changes, security checks, bad airport/airplane food, restless legs, smelly toilets, packing, unpacking and other mundane stuff associated with travel. I wish we could use a port-key or floo powder or apparate/disapparate like Harry Potter or beam myself to my destination like they did in Star Tek! Right now my bedroom looks like a war-zone with everyone's summer clothes strewn all over waiting to be packed and a formidable stack of books which will comprise probably 60% of the luggage weight! I'm mighty excited about the prospect of being able to read uninterrupted for the next 8 days! So by the time I get back to the grind, I'd have finished reading

The Zahir - Paulo Coelho
The Thirteenth Tale - Diane Setterfield
Peony In Love - Lisa See
A Mirror Garden - Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian
Heaven's Edge - Romesh Gunesekera
Queen of dreams : a novel - Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni
Desirable daughters - Bharati Mukherjee
Maximum city : Bombay lost and found - Suketu Mehta

And I just realized that the list looks quite schizophrenic...oh well!!
