New Arrivals on my bookshelf

To clean up some of the melancholy from the previous post, here are some shiny new additions to the bookshelf, part of which has been purchased thanks to credit card points :)

The Emperor of All Maladies by Siddhartha Mukherjee

The pillow book by Sei Shonagon

The Cilappattikaram (the tale of an anklet),

The absent traveller (Prakrit love poetry from the Gathasaptasati of Satavahana Hola)

The last 3 books were Jerry's recommendations and the last one in particular is perhaps the first work from Prakrit that I have laid my hands on. Merry times ahead
