November Books

As the winter dawns in Gurgaon, the sweaters and jackets find their way out of the cupboard. The temperature drops gradually, signalling the arrival of chill, something I had never experienced in Kolkata. Winters in Kolkata were cool and pleasant. Gurgaon refuses to be cooperative.

But then, if you have books, and a warm blanket, you can endure any weather. I am lucky in that regard, as I have quite a few paperbacks waiting to be read and savored, in this month of November.

There will be additions to the list in the coming days. Till then, I will be pretty occupied with these, and their soothing warmth.

This post is shared with Book Haul - November.


  1. Yes, I will read a lot ... winter is here, Mr G.... much snow, like always ... and I will read books, real books, not e books ... I long to feel the pages and the paper ...

    1. Yes I too love paper books ... they are really enchanting:-)

  2. The world of books is indeed magical. The best possible winter pastime is to snuggle up and read, with an occasional sip of tea and something chat-pata to munch on... The smell of paper books old or new has an inexplicable charm.

  3. Winter in Delhi has arrived with a bang. This is rightly the time to enjoy the warmth of a light quilt with a book and occasional naps in between.

  4. Winters spent snuggling under a warm blanket, a paperback, and a mug of steaming hot chocolate. Mahn, this is the life :)
