SRK has definitely read 'The Alchemist' by Paulo Coelho!!!! That is my favourite novel!!!!!
oohh yeah! i love the alchemist.. i started reading more of paulo coehlo as well! loved it!! anyone think of any more?
Maybe you can read it?
I think he has mentioned reading one/some by Alexander McColl Smith.
They are a wonderful series based in Botswana.
The first one is The No.1 Ladies Detective Agency.
Thanks for this thread. great idea!
I've read Hitchhikers Guide To A Galaxy
I hope someone is keeping a track on the list coz it's gonna be growing at a fast rate (his books in the library are numbered in thousands according to Karan so it's going to be a mammoth task if it's done later on). Maybe we can pin it or something, how do we do that? I'm not good with forum format ^^;
I know he's into autobiographies... all the world leaders, even Hitler (I think I read this somewhere). He's reading Islamic books too, I remember he said in an interview that he's reading the life of the Prophet Muhammad becoz he wants to understand the history between the christians and the muslims.
And about 8? newspapers every morning with his coffee (but Hindustan Times doesn't count in this list, right? XDD)
I'm currently reading Life of Pi becoz I know he's read it and have scoured a bookshop for autobiographies... something I've never done before LOL. Oh! He also reads his own biographies, the ones from Anupama and Mushtaq, and books written on his films, like OSO and Asoka.
I love the idea of the book club. When and how can we do that over a forum?
I've finished reading Life of Pi! And I've just bought Catch 22 today. Hmmm, it's quite a thick volume *sweat* (I'm more of a comic book reader nowadays). Hope it's interesting...
i almost done with Daemon.. and whoa... it's a really heavy tech read but incredibly entertaining!!
and i started Zoya Factor yesterday.. and this one is sooooooo funny!!! and Shah makes an appearance in this one.. and he's SHIRTLESS!!!!!!!!!!
I remember him telling that he has read an excellent book named "Catch 22".
Hi! Just want to ask, could you please tell me what's the full title of Daemon and who's the author? Thanks
well the title is Daemon and its by Daniel Suarez. enjoy
Thanks! I'll look it up in the bookstore next time~
He has talked about a book named "The Ultimate Seduction" on the life of greats in an interview..
guys... i've been reading the whole day yesterday The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time and it's HILARIOUS and really interesting too!
and i'm still reading it
Dea didi, thank you for the link. I had never visited a book online before. I may just read it. But, for me, holding a book is so much more personal. Seems I already spend so much time in front of the computer! LOL
The tagline for OSO is from The Alchemist... haha =)
LOL...we already highlighted that!!!
Yeah, I remember SRK saying in the DVD extras in RNBDJ that Adi should make a lot more films. He siad a genius is not someone who writes a catch 22 and thats it. a genius artists does hundreds or thousands of projects and even if only say half are successful...that is the the mark of a genius! he said something on those lines! so i gathered from there he has read catch 22!
Definitely, he has mentioned it in several interviews before.
i just requested catch 22 from the library.. im excited!!
and the zoya factor was sooooooo funny!! absolutely loved it! i hope shah makes it into a movie..he bought the rights last year i think... it would be perfect! altho he wouldn't act in it.. but his special appearance has already been written in!!
LOL! I did the same...
