Orbis Terrarum Challenge 2009 Update


It's 6 months since the challenge started and I am done reading 5/10 books. I think that's a decent progress :) I am enjoying this more than I did last year! I have a tendency of getting stuck reading specific genres, so am glad that becoz of this OT challenge I consciously expand my reading to books from various countries...


1. FLIGHT OF PIGEONS by Ruskin Bond (India)
2. ANGELS AND DEMONS by Dan Brown (USA)
3. SIDDHARTHA by Herman Hesse (Germany) - book is based in India
4. THE REMAINS OF THE DAY by Kazuo Ishiguro (Japan)
5. BUDDHA MIND, BUDDHA BODY by Thich Nhat Hanh (Vietnam)


Currently Reading: THE MONK WHO SOLD HIS FERRARI by Robin Sharma (Canada)


I am yet to decide on the next 4 books that I need to pick up! So suggestions are welcome :)

Me too! I am done with 5!
Well Let me see - you can read Memoirs of a Geisha- that's like the one of my best reads this year!

For a good mix of philosophy and fiction you could try reading Ayn Rand's -"Fountainhead" and "Atlas shrugged".
For a good mix of Philosophy/ spiritualism and adventure you could read Robert.M.Pirsig's -"Zen and the art of motor cycle maintenance" and "Lila"
