You maybe ought to keep in The Handmaid’s Tale and The Unbearable Lightness of Being – both really fantastic books.

you plan to read da vinci code man ? abominable writing.

Aha.. this is what I love about Blogs and comments. I would have never bothered reading The Handmaid’s Tale and The Unbearable Lightness of Being. But since someone recommends them strongly, I will give them both a try.

And Jake, I read da Vinci code long time back. 🙂

Cheers,
D.
