Reading Challenges 2018

Due to a lack of time and an erratic Net Connection, I am putting all my Reading Challenges for 2018 on this one page.

In Alphabetical order:


BIRTH YEAR

This year, I'll be celebrating my uncle Harish Jijaji's birth for the Birth Year Reading Challenge hosted by Jane @ Hotchpot Cafe. I'll be lighting two candles on the cake which means two books from the year 1940.

DREAD AND READ 



After finishing four dreaded books last year and enjoying the sweeteners (thanks to our generous host Jane @ Hotchpot Cafe) I am raring to finish four more, this year. Here are the books, I plan to read from my shelves, all of them roosting lying there for more than a decade:

1. The Great Indian Way by Raja Rao
2. Baba Prithvi Singh Azad: An Autobiography
3. The Oppressive Present: Literature and Social Consciousness in Colonial India by Sudhir Chandra
4. Penal Settlement in Andamans by R.C. Majumdar

As for the sweeteners, I'll like something book-related, sugary, and indulgent:)
