And then there were none...

While i was waiting for my flight to Sharjah in Trivandrum airport, i got so bored and started checking out the book stall nearby.. Book shops always makes me so happy and there were lots of books to choose..
I love historical romance novels and most of the books in that section were the one that i read already.. so i decided to try a different genre and pick this..

'And then there were none' by Agatha Christie

I've heard a lot about Agatha Christie but this is my first book that i read of her.. I must admit i totally loved this murder mystery novel..
The story is about ten people who were invited to a lonely island only to find out their host is not there.. One by one, each of them were killed and the killer is one of them.. It's so hard to guess who the suspect is.. Brilliant work by Agatha Christie and I recommend it to anyone who loves mystery novels.. Happy reading!

A gift to remember!

Look what my brother presented me with when i was back home India for vacation!



The alchemist by Paulo Coelho... I was into half of it already in my ebook when he gave this book..
An inspiring book about following your dreams..
Here are some of the quotes  that i loved from this book..

“Everyone seems to have a clear idea of how other people should lead their lives, but none about his or her own.” 
 “When each day is the same as the next, it’s because people fail to recognize the good things that happen in their lives every day that the sun rises.” 
 “The simple things are also the most extraordinary things, and only the wise can see them.”
“Remember that wherever your heart is, there you will find your treasure.” 

Although i read mostly ebooks nowadays which is convenient, they're nothing compared to the feel of holding a real book in hand!
