Little Bee

I'm almost finished my book club book for February. It's a novel called "Little Bee" by Chris Cleave. It's about a refugee from Nigeria who ends up in London. She works really hard to learn "The Queen's English". I hope some of you will give it a try! It's an interesting story with great writing.

  • Ana, sorry for delayed response. Rich dad, Poor dad is worth reading. I have read it about an year back..It has great philosophy and as a father of a son, i have taken a lot from it. I am busy in reading `In Search of a direction`..It's very inspiring as it gives an idea of how things are bad here in our country and what can be done so that a direction is set to resolve many issues which have been `chronic` issues for this country.

The Law of Karma

This is a very cute thin book by haribhai thakkar, a spiritual personality from India.It gives, in simple language and with apt examples, an insight of how our action reflects  as fruits.

Go Kiss The World

Hi all, sorry for a long break. I have been reading quite good number of books, however, they are in my mother tongue (Marathi) and hence there was nothing much I would have shared. Now I am reading the book under discussion `Go Kiss The World` by Mr. Subroto Bagchi.
