I was out of town for the weekend, and when I get back, I see this! I have never won a slogan contest before - in fact, I haven't even sent in any entry to any slogan contest.... I always thought I was pathetic at creative slogans! ;) Anyway this one made my day! Now I have to look out for some good book at Amazon to redeem my $10 gift voucher. Shouldn't be too difficult... but do you have any suggestions?

Congrats! I won the contest and am wondering what to do with the $10 certificate as well, especially since shipping costs $5 more.

As far as suggestions for books below $10... Kite Runner (a brilliant, sensitive novel in its first 1/3rd part, later on tapers off but worth a read if you are looking for a fast read and know about Afghanistan.

Poems by EE Cummings. Check him out he is a fabulous poet. Staying on poetry Vikram Seth's The Golden Gate is a great read.
Have you read Rohinton Mistry? One of my favourites. If you have already read his A Fine Balance try Family Matters, a sensitive portrayal of a middle class Parsi family and also a glimpse into how Indians deal with old age. This one is a real gem and I would highly recommend it. Just check out the cover of the book. That should clinch the argument!
