Writing about books is always a welcome thing to do. Mliae, a genial and lively personality, who has myriads of stories to share, is a traveller, reader and a friendly blogger. She started this interesting concept of “Recycled Book Reading Challenge”(She announced about it at the beginning of the year during Jan itself, although I found out about it only recently!) She describes the essence of this initiative on her introductory post–
Book clubs and running out to purchase the newest hot item on the shelf has a tendency to get expensive after awhile, so I would like to focus on used or ‘recycled’ books. Remember that library book you bought for 10 cents? Or the second hand store find for 25 cents? Those are the ones about which I’m speaking. We all have them…some, like me, have a closet full just waiting to be read.
Today, I rummaged though my bookshelf and chose 12 recycled books that I will write about for this challenge.
I had read certain pages of some these books initially, but once there came a break , I never got chance to get back to them. Now I am hopeful I will complete them through this challenge.
These books are-
Chariots of Gods – Erich Von Daniken
The Winged Word – David Greene
The Greatest Show on Earth – Richard Dawkins
Do Butlers Burgle Banks? – P G Wodehouse
The Greatest Stories Never Told – Rick Beyer
A New Earth – Eckhart Tolle
The Prophet- Khalil Gibran
The Age of Innocence- Edith Wharton
Congo – Michael Chrichton
Galileo’s Daughter – Dava Sobel
Three Men In a Boat- Jerome K Jerome
The Man Eating Leopard of Rudraprayag- Jim Corbett
