Meme + A Thank You!

Veens tagged me for this awesome meme. I love book memes! :)

Are there any books you would like to beg, borrow, or steal?
Oh yes. My To-Be Read list just keeps piling up and I'd love to 'indefinitely borrow' some books that are on my list ;)

Are you addicted to trips to Borders or the public library?
Library. I'd be penniless if I was addicted to visiting book shops (which I already am, sort of ) because I just can't do window-shopping. Nothing's more torturous than gaping at a wonderful book knowing you can't buy it! 

Do you have a way to remember what books you have read?
Goodreads. And a stick-it note with a list of books I need to read soon. I love striking out the names in that note when I'm done reading the book. 

When did your love of books begin? 
As long as I can remember? Starting with the Berenstein Bears to Enid Blyton to Harry Potter to M.J.Akbar and Ramachandra Guha, I've been in love with books for as long as I can remember :)

What is a favorite book? 
Most definitely can't pick one. It used to be Little Women at one time, Malory Towers at another, Pride and Prejudice and Harry Potter some time back....but I can't zero in on one now. 

Authors would be Jane Austen, Jhumpa Lahiri, M.J.Akbar, Shashi Tharoor, Arthur Conan Doyle, Nayantara Sahgal J.K.Rowling, Agatha Christie...

Do you still have in your possession a book borrowed, but not returned to its rightful owner?
Yes. An old copy of My Experiments With Truth by Mahatma Gandhi, that I borrowed from my Mum :D

What's the most in library fines you have owed
Too many hefty fines too many times that I can't even remember. 

Do you loan books out to others?
Yep..but I'm always worried about how/when/if it will come back. LOL. I heave a sigh of relief when I get back the book :)

How do you keep track of them? 
I don't lend that many books to lose track of them. I usually remember them well enough.

I tag anyone who wants to do this meme! 


A big thank you to all of you who have taken time to read my blog, post comments and encourage me to keep this blog running for almost a year now. I have some more things planned for this blog and hopefully, I have enough time to do it. 

You guys are fantastic and I'm so very glad to have reached the magical 50 followers mark! :D

Congratulations on the big 50 :) This meme sounds fun, I might even take it up :) But I am almost scared to do memes and challenges. I have a feeling that if I start I will go out of control :)

Fun answers! I like to read the memes but I'm not great at doing them. Congratulations on 50 followers too! Makes you feel good doesn't it? :)

Thanks for playing! I will have to check into some of those authors I haven't heard of before. Do all libraries have an amnesty day for fines? (or whatever it is called) Ours does.
Congrats on reaching 50! That's much nicer than the real world age. :)
