The sun is shining, the weather is sweet…..

Interesting, the way sun decided to come out today amidst the harsh winter, as it was expected to be, this time of the year at this part of the world! It has been amazingly slow today at office. And I decided to read every post I wrote on my blog(s), including my old blog, having suddenly been hit by the fact that it has been 5 years since I started blogging! Read every single line including the comments and I realized that I just managed to kill 2 hours! It almost seems as though Time has decided to go lazy during this holiday season trying to drag its way to the end of the day!

I have been rather unusually steady on my “reading” assignments over the past few days. The new book – People of the book by Geraldine Brooks which I started over last weekend, seem to keep me engrossed. It tells the story of the oldest Jewish text – Sarajevo Haggadah, tracing its survival path over the ages. Interesting the way the author has managed change her style of writing to suit the era she was describing. I still have a long way to go. But at the onset, it certainly stands top among the better books I have read in the recent past.
