I like to read a lot. And I like to tell people that I like to read a lot. Hence, this page.

My Library

As I have mentioned before, I like to hoard up on books. I enjoy the process of cataloguing: sorting titles in alphabetical order, going insane with thousands of genres and subgenres and ending up with just two (fiction and non-fiction), feeling bad about dog ears, and experiencing the pain of losing books (Sushanth, I will never forgive you for misplacing my copy of Leo Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina!)

Take a look at my library of at least 400 books here. And let me know if you need to borrow any. TN.
