My July Reading List

The best thing about getting a Kindle is that you don't really need to carry big sized books to read them, but have this light weight paper-like thing with immense power. Here the books that I plan to read in the coming month (in no specific order).

Manhunt: From 9/11 to Abbottabad - the Ten-Year Search for Osama bin Laden

Author- Peter Bergen
Right from the 9/11 to the final days of bin Laden in his fortress in Abbottabad, Peter Bergen describes in detail the hunt of the World's most wanted man. Although I wanted to get my hands on this one for over a year, I think it's going to be worth the wait.

Grey Wolf: The Escape of Adolf Hitler

Authors- Simon Dunsten, Gerrard Williams
Enough of Osama bin Laden. How about we go back half a centry and read about another such man. Apparently, Grey Wolf disproves beyond doubt that Hitler and his wife didn't die in the bunker that fateful day. Rather, they escaped to Argentina, where they lived a relatively peaceful life till death.

Author- Thomas Harris
If you were interested in the TV series Hannibal or the Anthony Hopkins' Hannibal trilogy, you would know that this very novel started it all- the story of the brilliant psychiatrist and cannibalistic serial killer Hannibal Lecter.
