Read the last story from the collection of 24 short stories by Philip K Dick (PKD) titled "The Complete Stories of Philip K. Dick Vol. 3". Now I will give PKD a break for a couple of months and pick it up next year. The current ACD collection is also coming to an end and I am not planning to start a new ACD collection this year.


Instead of PKD and ACD, I will probably pick up some other short story series by a particular author or by genre. Something like Asimov short stories ...


Read the last story from the collection of 12 short stories titled "Alfred Hitchcock - Home Sweet Homicide". Surprisingly it had one story in common with another series that I have been reading this year. The remaining 3 titles also will be completed in coming months.

You might wonder that although there are a couple of novels shown in the list above, the reviews of the same are not there on my blog. Well … the recent months have become more and more busy and the time I get for myself is getting more and more limited. Even weekends are gutted by office work and occasional family demands. Reading numbers have also fallen but they are still there since I read during my daily commute to and fro office and that hasn't changed yet.
