I just read "the 3 mistakes of my life", the latest novel from Chetan Bhagat. I felt this novel is better than his one night @ the call center, but not better than five point someone. Anyways, not too disappointed either. Makes for a good half a day timepass at home.

Chariots of GOD by Erich Von Daiken
This book supports the facts that gods were aliens. More intelligent life forms who visited earth thousands of years ago. And why our Ramayana and Mahabharata talk about super weapons and vehicles inherited from these life forms.
Legendary Times Books :: Erich von Daniken :: Chariots of the Gods

Not sure where u can find it in India but a must read for all.

Just finished reading False Impressions by Jefferey Archer. Nice book to learn about the importance and fine nuances of the high price painting and art world.

Frankly I never liked Chetan Bhagat's novels, they are more off a comic book. You enjoy reading it but thats about it.
I recently finished "Veronica decides to die" by Paulo Coelho. He is one of my fav.
