The other day I was blog-hopping when I came across the name Flipkart. I had no clue about it so I proceeded to check out the website. It is a site that delivers books, music, games, movies etc., much like amazon.com or other such sites. But the good part about it is that it has a very convenient Cash on Delivery option which doesn't bind you to paying via credit card or otherwise online, which I don't particularly like. Also, shipping is free and there are many books at some discount or another.
Anyway, so I ordered three books and after a slight delay by the couriers, I received them last evening! It was a treat to open the packages and revel in the sight, touch and smell of the new books.
I'm already on to the first one, "Keep Off the Grass" by Karan Bajaj. This book was mentioned in the Times of India Crest edition a couple of weeks ago. The beginning is good, funny...Hope the promise holds.
