“niraj”:http://www.nirajweb.net/mt/niraj/archives/001584.html has posted an update on what he is reading these days. So here is my list.
The book I am reading now is “Lexus and the Olive Tree”:http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0385499345/jksobservat-20/102-6833280-6166532 by Thomas L. Friedman. According to Friedman, Globalization is now the dominant system that is controlling nations and companies.
The next book in line is “Eminent Historians”:http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/8172233558/jksobservat-20 by Arun Shourie. This book is an expose on various historians who wrote the history books we learned in school.
While I was in India, I read “Chasing the monsoon”:http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0805020527/jksobservat-20 by Alexander Frater and “Ignited Minds”:http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0143029827/jksobservat-20 by APJ Abdul Kalam. I will post the book reviews soon.
Besides this I have to read “seven titles of the Asterix collection”:http://shopping.rediff.com/shopping/books/asterix.htm. This blog never got into Harry Potter, even after two attempts. So it will be sitting out through the current Phoenix frenzy.
