Book Haul/// Books of May 2015, Part-II. Books from Bargain Book Hut.


Hope this Saturday is treating you well. 

I am still a little under the weather. My throat is killing me but there is soothing tea to be had and TV shows to watch. 

I watched Detective Byomkesh Bakshy today and God it was so bad. Slow, way too stylised, dark (like literally, most of the scenes were so dark) and boring to bits. I don't know how you can go so wrong with such brilliant source material. The books (short stories) written by Saradindu Banerjee are brilliant and how anyone can interpret them so terribly is indeed a tragedy. Gah! *rant over* 

Now on to the happy..I thought I'd share my little book haul from Bargain Book Hut a pretty delighful little bookshop that stocks very marked down books. I go to the one in Kala Ghoda and love it. I always find treaures there and for so cheap. 

Let's see what I got...

Aren't some of the books so pretty?!!! 

The Manu Joseph one is especially just stunning. 
I also got a book of puzzles...I love these babies. So fun and they bring back a ton of memories from when I was a kid. 

Books Bought..

I, Romantic- Rajeev Jhaveri 
Serious Men- Manu Joseph 
A Dead Hand- Paul Theroux 
The Colour Purple- Alice Walker 
Beloved- Toni Morrison 
Book of Crossword Puzzles 

I am so excited about these books I got most of these books for over 40% off and nothing beats getting good books for a good bargain! 

Lots of happy reading in my future! :)

Hi pooja,
Saradindu bandyopadhyay or banerjee?

Pooja T said...

Tina- they both work. Banerjee is the shortened and easy to say/write version of Bandyapadhyay. It is one and the same thing.
