You never fail to amaze me or amuse me... :P :P Are you ready to jump into ponniyin selvan? Its pretty long book (4 volumes, if I remember correctly) and easily longer than next Harry Potter. I am not discouraging you or doubting you, but just wanted to inform you. :P :P It would be nice to start with a smaller book, until at least our reading speed improves... rrr... please don't mistake me, my dear.... Just that I am anxious that you should enjoy it just as much as you presevere in reading it... OK?
And yes, tholkaappiyam is a Grammar book. Just as wonderful as reading Wren and Martin :P :P :P Useful to read, but not in a reading club.
I will vote for Parthiban Kanavu (the book, folks, not the movie.. :P ) - because its short and still wonderful. We can come back to Ponniyin Selvan at a later date.
ps: Blues, you have given Parthiban Kanavvu twice in the poll - but I think you meant Parthiban Kanavu, and Ponniyin Selvan. Could you please edit it.. :P Thanks!
