I thought it would be great to start this thread again.
Here are some of the books out of my memory:
'The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy' - Douglas Adams 'So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish' - Douglas Adams (I think he mentioned this one somewhere - I hope I'm not wrong) 'The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul' - Douglas Adams
'The Tiger Claw' - Shauna Singh Baldwin (I've read it - fantastic book)
'The Kite Runner' - Khaled Hosseini (wonderful book)
'The Swarm' - Frank Schaetzing (saw it one one of the pics with the book shelves in the back )
Oh this is harder than I thought - I have to find more of them …
RD: You are a voracious reader. Which book are you reading currently? SRK: I read three or four books at a time. I’ve just finished a thriller called Digital Fortress and now I’m reading a book on the Kabbala, an ancient religion.

I used to read a lot and I started to do it again. Right now I am reading 'God of Small Things' - which is on his list too . Thank you - now that I see what you have discovered for us (again) I remember many of it.
