Watched Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds finally. It was fantastic. The performance that stood out was Hans Landa played by Christoph Waltz.

On the telly, saw Julie and Julia. Julie is a writer who starts a blog inspired by Chef Julia Child’s recipe book, which turns into an instant success. Meryl Streep was brilliant as the loud, hearty, and larger than life Julia.

Then there was The Social Network and you got a peek into the conception of Facebook and its creator Mark Zuckerberg. Not all of it was pretty, but then success never is.

The Tourist was again a good watch. I watched it mainly for Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie who are gorgeous, gorgeous people. I wish Jolie would gain some weight. She looked much better in Salt.

Reading-wise, I read and enjoyed Rhonda Byrne’s The Secret (finally) and Kiran Desai’s The Inheritance of Loss.

Abha Dawesar’s That Summer in Paris could’ve been skipped. Picked up The Laws of the Spirit World by Khorshed Bhavnagri but didn’t really connect with the subject matter so didn’t read it.

Also, finished Murakami’s What I Talk About When I Talk About Running, a piece of non-fiction that is the author’s take on running, life and writing. If i haven’t said this before, i’ll say it now. Murakami could easily be my soul mate.

Books i bought but yet to start reading –

Georges Perec’s Life A User’s Manual


W. Somerset Maugham’s Of Human Bondage
