Petrol Price Hike? Hurray.

The Houston Chronicle begins its summer reading round up by suggesting that, with the price of petrol being what is is, it might be better to sit back in a hammock with a book instead of venturing outdoors. Excellent advice. In the USA, or in India.

Update: The venerable Time magazine gives us an update on the "ten most anticipated books to come out later this year", a list that includes Vikram Chandra's Sacred Games. And, in classic publisher's hyperbole, a Harper Collins source is quoted as saying that the book will "do for Indian literature what One Hundred Years of Solitude did for South American literature." thought Midnight's Children already did that.
