Lotus at Lotus Reads has provided me with some excellent titles over the last year (Shadow Cities: A Billion Squatters, a New Urban World , Maximum City: Bombay Lost and Found and Palace Walk).
The latest interesting titles from current Lotus Lists include:
Train to Pakistan by Khushwant Singh
Freedom at Midnight by Dominique la Pierre and Larry Collins
What the Body Remembers by Shauna Singh Baldwin
Actually, there are even more on the list of those that I want to read, but those three stand out at the moment.
Another that I'd like very much to read is Indian Summer: The Secret History of the End of an Empire, and follow the link to an article that gives a most interesting review of this book by Alex von Tunzleman.
This is what I did last night instead of read...worked on a WIP that has been on my design wall for several months now and watched Look to the Lady based on Margery Allingham's Campion novels. I basted the quilt sandwich together, then sat down to some hand quilting as I reveled in the atmosphere.
Tonight I did get a good more reading done and still love The Spanish Bow. And now to bed...
