Or maybe the fifth time’s the charm?

I don’t read. I don’t know why but I don’t.

And I don’t mind accepting this at all. Although some people find it surprising which again, I have no clue why.

I have read four novels in my life.

  1. The First was Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë. It was part of my class 12th curriculum. So I was kind of forced to read it. But it is a great book. I can very well read it again.
  2. The second was Great Expectations by Charles Dickens. It was also a part of my class 12th curriculum. I found it to be pretty great. More so because I could relate with the hero, Pip. I also saw a god-awful movie based on the book after I read the book. They butchered the book completely.
  3. The third was The Old Man and The Sea by Ernest Hemingway. It was part of my B.Tech. Second semester curriculum and it was so boring that I never read the whole thing. I left it midway and just read the synopsis.
  4. The fourth was The Bachelor Of Arts by R K Narayan. This was the first book I read by choice. I saw it with one of my friends one day and just thought I might like it. The name really appealed to me. She also had The God Of Small Things with her and I almost thought of reading that instead (Thank god, I didn’t) but since this book was thinner and Arundhati Roy is a big jerky, the choice was easy.

Now, after years of not having read any other book other than those related to my field, I bought this book last Sunday.

The Da Vinci Code

It’s The Da Vinci Code. Yes, people, I finally succumbed to all the hoopla surrounding this book. I have managed to read only 4 chapters till now and I don’t know how long it will take me to complete all the 67 chapters. It’s just okay till now. It better be good and worth all the trouble.

Wish me luck!!
