Yesterday I got a surprise late B'day gift from my husband 😍, so I had to put up a Shelfie 🙊
.
The book shelf you see on the left was the gift, and I have put all my b'day gifts and Aug Haul on the new one 🙊
.
So finally I don't have to worry about running out of space 🙊.

QOTD : Where do you keep your books? Do you have shelves or do you keep in cupboards? When I was in a pg, my books were kept in a cupboard also in boxes under the bed 😥

No review post today. But, sharing something really special. I saw @reader_viddh 's post where she shared about her childhood memories and so, I thought about sharing mine 😄
.
.
I have never shifted houses. I have been living in this place since the last 23 years of my life. So you see why I love the greeneries around me. Although, it has been renewed twice yet the memories in this place are still so fresh. And whenever someone asks me about my childhood days, I can recall a lot of stuffs I used to do when I was a kid. Like playing with my small utensil kit, barbies, puzzle sets, and ofcourse reading fairy tales, moral stories, mowgli, peterpan and watching shaktiman on doordarshan.
.
.
Me and my dad used to go to book fairs every year during winters and bring home a pile of books. While I was going through my old stuffs yesterday, I found these books out of the many I had. Some were damaged when my house caught fire and some of my books and puzzles were distributed among my younger siblings and neighborhood kids by my mom. Ofcourse I didn't want to give up my stuffs but she is always on a mission to clear up more space for her utensils. Yes, she has an obsession for utensils(all kinds, big and small). What kind of obsession is that? 😒 Anyway, 😁😁so I found these and wanted to share a picture. Also, I would like to know about yours. If you have any memory or any favorite childhood reads, do share 😊

Do you buy used books online?

I ordered two books. Of the two, one is a completely different edition than the one advertised but is as good as new. The other is a bit tattered and not in the best condition (atleast for the price I paid). So I don't think I will be buying used books online anytime soon.

An isolated block of 150 apartments occupied only by single ladies and manned by two receptionists.Some of the ladies have secrets to hide . A master key exists that can unlock any apartment and it gets stolen.A child's body lies buried under the apartment which is yet to be discovered . The woman in the fifth floor is still waiting for someone to return to her even after seven years and she prepares dinner every night for this anticipated guest who never comes.The "Master Key ",by Masako Togawa connects all this to give us a good old fashioned mystery thriller with unexpectected twists and turns till the end.
✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨
The author Masako Togawa was apparently a lady who wore many hats as a singer ,composer,city planner,night club owner and novelist.For me ,the most interesting fact about this book is that it is all about the women.The women carry the show all through the book with their inner fears , insecurities, jealousies,cunningness,secrets and wits.
Do pick it up if you love mysteries and have a special corner for Japanese mysteries

Title: Train to Pakistan
.
Author: Khushwant Singh
.
Genre: Historical fiction, Novel
.
Publisher: Penguin
.
One Word Review: topsy-turvy
.
.
If you're looking to read something you can finish reading in a day then I recommend you Train to Pakistan by Khushwant Singh.
.
It's not a simple book,
it's not a light read,
it's not a book you'll forget that easily,
it's not an easy book to recommend,
it's not a book you'd want to read to get out of a reading slump. Highly recommended! 👍
.
Thank you @thenotoriousreader for recommending this book 🤘🤘

Book 120 of 2018.
Saturday plans now include staying in bed reading short stories about my beloved city. Can't think of a better way to spend this drizzly day.
I am already 4 stories in and boh oh boy, these stories manage to capture the essence of Bombay. It's people, it's crowds, it's grittiness and it's beating heart. I may be partial, but there really is something special about this city of mine. And it's a pleasure to read about a side of it very different from my own experience.
My Saturday is all sorted. .

Today will be spent feasting on Trollope .
.
.
.
Have you guys read any Trollope ? I haven't yet , but it's interesting to read about this Victorian author whose works faced much rejection. I am more eager to read his earlier works now, not sure how many of them are in print. He wrote more than 40 novels 🤓 . Did you guys Trollope's mother and brother were also writers. .

Wanderlust is a state of Being for me. Countries, cities , places , food and people define what I am today. The places I have visited has always left an impact. When we decided to do the Wanderlust theme, I was scared, nervous that I may do it wrong. But I think we passed 😊

In the midst of all the fiction and non fiction you read, reading a mythological book is like the best thing ever. Isn't it?

Here's my take on Preetha Rajah Kannan's Hounds of Shiva... https://vanyasnotebook.blogspot.com/2018/08/hounds-of-shiva-by-preetha-rajah-kannan.html?m=1

Feedback appreciated :) #QOTD : Do you like reading mythological fiction?

On August 15th, 2018, we launched our website www.shareabookindia.com amidst our campaign #ReadToFreedom in the presence of many powerful and supportive human beings who showed up to promote our cause despite their busy schedules. @happyshappysana @stutichangle @gstorytime @prasadshabri @mahamedhaanagar talked to us about freedom and how their love for reading shaped them as an individual. The kind authors @stutichangle @gstorytime @prasadshabri gave away signed copies of their books and we are sure each one of us had fun interacting with people who had all come together to bring about #freedomdforall.🌟
We @shareabookindia plan to do so by ending inequalities of our society and providing each Indian child in school with the means to complete their education and become productive individuals who will take #India to greater heights. If you wish to do the same or something similar, join us in our mission through the link in bio.
