The name’s Bond. James Bond.

I had a Rs. 1001 voucher to use up at Odyssey. So I enter the store the day before yesterday, and almost immediately, notice this:

The price: Rs. 995. Only. For 14 books! Super! Picked up. Billed. That’s the way all shopping should happen, IMHO.

The complete James Bond collection, by Ian Fleming, with nice, tacky, retro cover design (I’m a sucker for nice looking covers). Being a stickler for order, I will obviously start reading with Book 1 – which is ‘Casino Royale’, and hopefully will get to Book 8 – ‘For Your Eyes Only’ by November. Why? Because that’s the book that contains the short story ‘Quantum Of Solace’, and that’s the month the movie ‘Quantum Of Solace’ is out. Reports say that the film’s plot is in no way related to the story, and that only the title is borrowed, but it would just give me some mental satisfaction to have read it beforehand.

    bobo,

    Plus the box makes it so easy to stow away under the bed, as most of my recent book purchases have been…

    Manasi,

    Which one do you want to spend? The Rs.5000 one, or the other Rs.5000 one, or the Rs. 3000 one? 😀
