Monday and a long overdue update!

**Update - LT didn't work **sigh****

How's the week for you all? Hope all's well with you guys :-)

I told you guys that I have been out on vacation and I was supposed to write a post on that, but I never was able to do it. The vacation was superb, went to Bombay to meet m parents and we had lots of fun! We watched Transformers[ and one more regional language movie] there, and my God! it was gooood!

Then we went around to many places but we had jsut 2 days so we rushed back. Of course, I got enough time to sneak into a bookstore and get myself some goodies. So without much ado, here are the books I was able to snag ;)

By my standards that's a HUGE number :-)
I am pretty excited about all of them, and I have started on

From Amazon.com,

The girl with the dragon tattoo is back. Stieg Larsson's seething heroine, Lisbeth Salander, once again finds herself paired with journalist Mikael Blomkvist on the trail of a sinister criminal enterprise. Only this time, Lisbeth must return to the darkness of her own past (more specifically, an event coldly known as "All the Evil") if she is to stay one step ahead--and alive. The Girl Who Played with Fire is a break-out-in-a-cold-sweat thriller that crackles with stunning twists and dismisses any talk of a sophomore slump. Fans of Larsson's prior work will find even more to love here, and readers who do not find their hearts racing within the first five pages may want to confirm they still have a pulse. Expect healthy doses of murder, betrayal, and deceit, as well as enough espresso drinks to fuel downtown Seattle for months. --Dave Callanan
Last week I also received,This one I won at Travelling to Teens! Wow! I was so excited when I saw this in my mailbox on my return from my vacation!

So I had an awesome vacation, and a very awesome book-buying time! Here is a pic that's for Dar, she asked in one of her lovely Sunday posts, whether any dog lay on it's back like Buddy[ her cute li'l one] does :-). I am proud to present Vava -

Hope you all have a great week ahead!

Head over to J.Kaye's to know what everyone is reading!!

wow.. great collection...

I recently got 'Twilight' and 'New Moon', guess what both Paulo's and Noble's books had been kept aside, but then I realised that was bad, I fished Noble's first and m doin Twilight then New Moon and then will come Paulo's turn (this is what I am saying), but I intend to get both the 3rd and 4th of Twilight series ;) :P

wow! that's a nice collection of books :)

I'll be waiting to read your review about The Remains of the Day. I kinda had high expectations of that book but I didnt enjoy reading it much!

Glad you had a good holiday. I love the pic of Vava! Too adorable. Thanks for sharing it.

The Red Tent is really good. I bet you like it.
