Bookaholic 101

"A room without books is like a body without a soul." 
                                                                          ― Marcus Tullius Cicero

“Good friends, good books, and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life.”
                                                                                                                      ― Mark Twain

“I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library.” 
― Jorge Luis Borges
“Never trust anyone who has not brought a book with them.” 
                                                                                       ― Lemony Snicket

I am a person who loves books. The mere sight of them is equivalent to, gushing of serotonin in my veins :D
The fragrance of the books, the crisp pages, the font of the alphabets, the feel of the book all matter to me. My ideal holiday would be a comfy couch & an interesting book to read. Almost a year back I was so busy with my work life that, all I managed to read was off the net. Sad I know.. Now everything has changed and I have all the time. So this page is going to be more or less a tab of the books I read in the recent past and the books I am going to read in the near future.
