Books and Authors discovered serendipitously definitely have a special place in my heart. One of my current favourite authors was discovered by such methods of the mind, to naturally chance upon the best possible representation of its needs. A miracle of nature… just like the magical appearance of an elephant on the streets everytime I am gloomy and need a mood changer.
Craig Thompsom was discovered through his BEAUTIFUL ‘Habibi’ sitting behind the book seller’s desk at ‘Blossoms’ the wonderful book store in Bangalore. The book store is defnitely serendipity heaven for me, I found two books I have been looking for forever, both autographed by the authors! (who sells those??!?!). After we bought Habibi at Blossoms, we bought his other books online, since we live in ‘book-lover unfriendly’ Ahmedabad.
