I have been busy enough, not to indulge in shopping,all I could do was online shopping lol....One advantage of online shopping is that books are at your doorstep and nowadays shipping is free, but then you miss reading few pages before buying them..Another point is I only buy what I desire not some more books that I end up buying while browsing for the book in my mind..So here are the book which I wanted to buy for sometime....I did keep my first aim to indulge in shopping only after finishing up with the previous list but I couldn't do justice to the second aim to write all about it...May be next time...All the books were purchased from Flipkart.com..I have only listed the books inside information will follow as I write about them in my later posts..Here I go.....
