 The silkworm by Robert Galbraith
 The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion
 The collected works of A J Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin
All three are great. I have finished 1 and 2 and am about to complete 3. If I have to order the books by my preference, it would be 3, 1, and 2.

Tyler Cowen at MR has some useful advice (that involves re-reading and reading without going through the reviews); a nice piece..

The novel kept me occupied till the end. Here is the NPR review; here is Pradeep Sebastian on the book. As was noted in one of the reviews, some parts of the story are too convenient to be believable. But barring that, it was a nice read.

I have not read any Yashwanth Chittal except for some sections of his introduction to Moovaththu Kathegalu — a selection of thirty short stories of Masti. I understand that he passed away recently. The Hindu Friday review has a piece by Deepa Ganesh and a translation of a section of one of his books, Anthahkarana. The photos that accompany Deepa Ganesh piece are also a must-see.

Here is the piece in The Telegraph; here is the link to British Museum page. By the way, I recently visited CSMVS (Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya); strongly recommended.
