Top Ten Posts on This Blog [UBC-Day 13]

Some reviews are easier to write but many reviews are tough to write because it is very difficult to translate your emotions, thoughts, feelings to written text. I have always associated popularity of the posts based on the popularity of the book or movie that I have reviewed. But the site statistics have always proved me wrong.

So here is the look at the most popular posts on this blog from June 2009. I know that I have kept a ‘Popular Posts’ widget on my left side bar. But those cover only the last 30 days and I think that is a justifiable period.

1. The Adventures of Tintin: Movie Review

This movie review is the most popular post on this entire blog and I was totally surprised at the number of people who came looking for the review.

 I hope I have convinced all of you to give A J Cronin a try if you have never read one of his works. Flipkart has The Citadel and The Keys of the Kingdom, but they are on the slightly expensive side. Try raiding the old second hand book shops in your place; trust me you will be very much surprised. Amazon Kindle Store also has a decent enough collection of his works.
