For the bookshelf..

Saturday at Oxford
Sunday at Crossword
Four from the former
Two from the latter

Reasons are to be built
For I suffer from guilt
I say, "What for do I earn?"
Oh God, when will I learn? :(

Ah!..a similar predicament,a similar convincing reasons...been there many times before...recently though, had presuaded myself not to open that ghostly door!:)

Hellboy said...

I am guilty the other way, never bought a book, ever. Always used to think "why the libraries are for?"

Finally ordered a couple of books last week from Amazon. They are on the mail :-)

Also figured that the previous post is a fiction with traces of events from your life, all is clear now :-)

Krish, :) the ghostly door is too addictive!! :)

Hellboy, yeah, lot of people do tell me the same thing..why not pick up from a library...but the fact is that, I am busy building my own library!! :p..Glad all is clear with the previous post, now! :)

DD said...

sumant said...

it can get busy in a hurry. i control my book-buying by finding other ways to waste my cash, which is usually quite easy to do, since there's not much of it to begin with.

the hard part is living without a decent library that can feed the reading cravings.

powai is a cruel, cruel place.

Anupama Viswanathan said...

Yaathrigan, am sorry, can't help you much there!


Sumant, the other ways to waste cash - I land up buying cassettes and CDs..that isn't making things any better..:|..My place isn't that cruel as far as libraries are concerned, but it's just that I am far too weak-minded and adamant to have one on my own! :)

... what is word verif.? (i guess verif. - is verification but what is it and why do you put it) Someone tell me pleeeeaase it's scary. Really i am scared of things i don't know. Isn't everyone? What is it?

Anupama Viswanathan said...

Manoj, I suppose you need some blogger tutoring..Word verification is to prevent spam comments..

Manoj said...

oh ,,, that "type the noodles you see in that weird picture" thing that is here in the post a comment box? Yeah i get it. These guys are so dumb. Even i can write a program that can recognize the text in these pictures 90% of the times. I am writing to google to make it stronger.
