  1. This is so interesting! Would like to do this!

    Pride & Prejudice…everyone loves this book, but I couldn’t finish it. (Hey! This should be included – A Book You Couldn’t Finish!) 🙂 Not much into classics.

  2. Oooooh! Ooooh! I wanna do this!
    We have so many books in common 😀
    You revamped your whole blog. This looks so colorful and cheerful. Loved the new layout! 🙂

  3. Many of my favourites are on your list too. I’mean not much into biographies too but you could try Open, Andre Agassi’s autobiography, Naseer’s And Then One Day or even Maharani Gayatri Devi’s A Princess Remembers.

    1. Thanks Tulika. I would love to read on Andre Agassi as he is one of my favourites. Maharani Gayatri Devi is intriguing. I will look out for biographies.
