Ramblings-Rave & Rant


I tag myself

One major grouse I have in the blogging world is that nobody sends me meaningful tags. So the first time I came across one in someone else’s blog, I decided to do it for fun. Here I go.

1) What author do you own the most books by?
PG Wodehouse

2) What book do you own the most copies of?
None…if I happen to get 2 copies of the same book, I make sure I gift it away or exchange it in the book shop from where it was bought (of course, I try this option first before I gift it away)

3) Did it bother you that both those questions ended with prepositions?
Yes..I was wondering why.

4) What fictional character are you secretly in love with?
He Man (Nothing to do with books though)

5) What book have you read the most times in your life?
St.Clare’s twins and Malory towers and Malgudi days and Shakespeare’s hamlet and comedy of errors and merchant of venice, and robinson crusoe and treasure island and many such more…
