It is time for the second checkpoint in the Mount TBR challenge hosted by Bev @ My Reader's Block. I find to my delight that I have made some progress. From April to June, I read three more books from my shelves: Alexander McCall Smith's Espresso Tales, Donna Tartt's The Secret History, and Tarashankar Bandopadhya's Aarogyaniketan. Combined with the two books read in Jan-March, this means I have read five books in all, which is almost halfway to my ultimate goal of 12 books. Of course, I am woefully behind in my reviews, having managed to review just two of them.
Of the books read so far the one on my shelves longest was Aarogyaniketan (since 2006). It is also the one I enjoyed the most. It was a book that I wasn't too enthused about and yet it turned out to be such a gripping read. Perhaps this year was the right time to read it because for all I know I might not have enjoyed it this much had I read it earlier.
