  1. Totally agree with your view of the Finkler Question (big ado about not much). But I love mountain climbing books and will give that one a try. I assume you’ve read and loved Jon Krakauer’s Into Thin Air?

  2. Hi,nice to know you’ve decided to follow my blog, thank you so much. Among the list of books you read, I’ve only read Picture of Dorian Gray. In all I read more than 30 books in 2016,I entered the reading challenge, 2016,I signed up to read twenty-five but continued, in between I had a few gaps,I’ve started reading again. Recently I read, ‘Roald Dahl’s Matilda, it’s an interesting book which little kids would enjoy. I bought his collection of fifteen, one of them is too childish, but I finished reading it.
    At present I’m reading,l Charles Dickens, ‘A Tale Of Two Cities’ I find this one quite depressing. 🙂

  3. Thanks for the following over at CTB.
    I like the list of books you shared. I had considered reading a few and will now save my time and dollars after your recommendations.
