Books & DVDs
Had been to my old haunt: Paperbak (at Thane) to pick up some new books. If I have not pitched Mahesh's shop earlier, let me do so now. If you live in/around Thane and are desperately looking for books, just email Mahesh at paperbak at vsnl.com and you can be sure he will get them within a week or so.
Anyway, onto the books. Flow had been recommended to me by quite a few people. Was lucky as Mahesh was able to find a copy for me. Mohith had strongly recommended I pick up Execution: The Discipline of Getting Things Done. So that too went into the bag. Finally had to choose between Eldest and Love in the Time of Cholera. I had read Marquez recently and loved One Hundred years of Solitude. But sod it! Fantasy continues to remain my first love. So I picked up Eldest (a decision which I now regret!).
Later in the evening, Nilesh passed on the 12 DVD Director's Cut of LOTR which I had been waiting for quite some time. Even though, the whole thing set me back by an amount equal to the GDP of Burkina Faso, I think it was well worth it. :)
