Tagged...infected...!

Infected with the 'Book Tag' bug...thanks to Kiran. :)

So what is this 'Book Tag' stuff all about?
Well...all you need to do is write a post on The number of books you own, Last book you bought, Last book you read, The book that you are reading now, Books which mean a lot to you and stuff like that. In the end you need to find 5 victims to whom you can pass on this bug (this part seems to be the most interesting :-)).

I guess 'books' here should also include non-fiction and technical books right? And i guess an internet addict like me (nowadays im recovering!) will be reading a lot of textual matter which is not from the traditional books made of paper.

So starting with these non-books first...I am a news addict. I need a regular dosage of latest news from all over the world, otherwise my day is not complete.
a FEW of the news websites i frequent are:

* The Hindu

* The Times of India (this has become more of a masala tabloid nowadays)

* CNN

* Deccan Chronicle

* Eenadu

and many many more...

Last Book i read (non-technical): Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand
Awesome book! Excellent.

Present Book i am reading (or rather referring to): Opengl Red Book ...no fiction presently :(

Another great book i read ( i did manage to finish it!) -
Gone with the Wind
This classic also gave me a lot of knowledge about America before the civil war

Coming to Telugu...all my friends know me as a Telugu fanatic.
So they were not very surprised when i used to buy a load of books whenever there was a Visalandhra book exhibition in the town.
These included Thyagaraja kiratanalu, 'Mahaprasthanam' by Sri Sri, Annamayya kirtanalu, Sumati Satakam, karnataka sangeetam, pindi vantalu(!), Andhra Desam lo Buddha matam (dont remember the exact name) etc . Though i was not very fluent in reading Telugu script (i grew up as a pravasa andhrudu in n.india), i did make a sincere effort in reading them. I esp. loved the Annamayya kirtanalu.

When i was further younger, the magazines i used to read were Misha (the wonderful Russian magazine for kids), Chandamama, Famous Five, Hardy Boys, Champak...and lots of other Russian books, which we used to buy at book fairs.

and yes...i used to love Tintin comics.

ok..so that was about the books i used to read....hopefully i will resume reading fiction and novels again..once times change for better...

Now the part i like the most....

My victims to whom i pass on this bug are :-
