Read/Reading/Read 2012/13

I saw a blog today, about how she started her habit of reading books, from a friend. My upbringing was almost like her's. My Dad never bought me Toys, he always came home with bag full of books. That is not what I am going to write about today. I realized many days ago, that I haven't updated my Read/Reading/Read section of the blog for more than a year now, but never had enough courage to go through the page and edit/update it. I am finally doing it now.

"Always read something that will make you look good if you die in the middle of it."

–P.J. O’Rourke
I have been a victim of Internet, and easily downloadable movies and series. I don't read often these days, and i cant read for long too. I have started reading "Arresting Gods in Kathmandu" and "The Guru's of Love" for more than two weeks now, and haven't completed half of any.
