About meThere’s not much to tell truthfully.

Haven’t been reading for all that long—started really getting into it around about 2002. Had no taste initially.

About my libraryI used to buy most of my books second-hand, and return the terrible ones. Now it’s different: I buy the books I want, and I usually can’t find them anywhere except for online stores. I like ‘weird’ stuff—SciFi, Fantasy, et cetera—and there’s not much of an Indian market for such books.

My offline store of choice is Strand. Not a large collection, but it’s the cheapest store I can find.

Amazon rocks for browsing, but charges way too much for international delivery. If wishes were horses, I’d have all these books.

I've built a small app to help me decide where to buy books from—it compares prices of books across some Indian shopping sites, and uses LibraryThing's excellent thingISBN service to get alternate editions. You can try it out here.
