Pass the 200,000 mark

Some people take longer, some people take shorter period of time to achieve this milestone. I took 3 years and 4 months to achieve it. Last weekend, 1 April 2012, my blog hits have passed 200,000 mark. Some hits are because of you, some are led by google search engine and some are referred by your blog.

Although blog hits don’t mean anything in a bigger scheme of things but it is a milestone that I would like to commemorate and most of all it is another great excuse to say a BIG thank you to everyone who has visited my blog over the years, recently visited and subscribe to this blog.

Thanks a million.

Ratings Defined

0 = Abandon the book after first chapter

1 = Waste of paper, we will see what the environmentalist say about this!

2 = Skip it, read the book if you have got nothing better to do

2.5 = An average book, easily forgettable.

3 = A good read.

3.5 = A good entertaining read, a page-turner

4 = So glad that I read the book, a book with substance and invaluable for future reference

4.5 = So glad that I read the book, would pester everyone to read it, invaluable, I would want to own it and wouldn't mind a second read (something that I seldom do)

5 = The book is so good that I feel like I am on scale 4 and 4.5, and more, it blew me away and lingers on my head for weeks!

Reading, after a certain age, diverts the mind too much from its creative pursuits. Any man who reads too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking. - Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955)
