What I am Leaving Behind…My Books.

Books play a role in my life like no other. They have always been there and now as I move cities, I would be leaving them behind but also hoping to get them one carton and another as and when I can. There are so many memories and so many books. I am not bragging. Merely stating and showing what I am going to leave behind. So here goes…


This one is stacked against 4 bookshelves. They are full to the brim with more books.

This is another one stacked against the wall:


More to come:

The 3rd Pile.

The 3rd Pile.

They are just about everywhere at home.

They are just about everywhere at home.


Books on the cupboard and books in the cupboard…



Another shelf:


Last Two:


No monsters under the bed.

No monsters under the bed.

Ten pictures and that is that. This is what my life is all about. I will miss them so so much. But maybe a new city. A new library. These will join them too. Eventually.

    There must be lots of knowledge inside. I think it’s cool to tell you that you got a library with those. I hope you will inspire others to read more books also.

    OMG…So many books. I was looking through the titles, what little I could spot. I saw Roald Dahl, George R.R.Martin and Infinite Jest. You really have very diverse tastes in books πŸ™‚

    Love the pictures and you can always ship them one by one after you are settled in your new place.

    I stumbled across your blog and really enjoyed your reviews. I am a publisher (2 novels published) in search of identity and would feel privileged to get reviewed by you.
    I will be happy to send a copy to you (soft copy or hard copy. Whichever you feel convenient enough). Let me know if you are interested.
    I’d love to hear back from you. You may contact me at mallam.nareshgoud@gmail.com
