2016: Reading Assignment Challenge

One of the challenges that I enjoyed greatly - though unfortunately could not finish -was the 2015 Reading Assignment Challenge. I am however determined to have another go at it and so am joining the 2016 Reading Assignment Challenge. Hosted by Michelle and Berls this involves making a list of books that you are determined to read in the upcoming year. Books can be from your shelves or can be borrowed from the library. There are various levels to choose from. I am choosing level no.1 which means that I commit myself to reading one book from the list of 12 books each month.

Here are the books that I'll be reading in 2016:

1. Bhagat Singh and His Legend (Ed) by J.S. Grewal  (May)

2. Bhai and Bhabi of Bhagat Singh: A Biography of Bhagwati Charan Vohra and Durga Bhabi by Malwinderjit Singh Waraich   (April)

3. The Boat by L.P. Hartley

4. Jaya: An Illustrated Re-Telling of the Mahabharata by Devdutt Patnaik  (February)

5. Krantiveer Bhagat Singh: Abhyudhaya and Bhavishya Ed. Chaman Lal

6. Making History: An Introduction to the History and Practice of a Discipline

7. Outlaws by Javier Cercas  (January)

8.  Satyanveshi Byomkesh by Shartendu Bandopadhyaya

9. Terror and the PostColonial Ed. Elleke Boehmer

10. The Trial of Bhagat Singh : Complete Tribunal Proceedings (With Sukhdev's Remarks) Ed. Malwinderjit Singh Waraich

11. Transnational History by Pierre-yves Sannier  (June)

12. Understanding Bhagat Singh by Chaman Lal  (March)

  1. Neer, I like the fact that you read so many books by Indian authors. I have been guilty on that score. Maybe, this year...
