Modern Man's Response to the Emergence of the Goddess

Back in July, I published a piece here on The Huffington Post called "Why It is Wise to Worship a Woman?" That article emerged in a very personal and spontaneous way. I'd been out for a walk with Chameli, my wife, one evening. Overwhelmed with the feeling that it just couldn't get any better than this, I popped a little update on Facebook in celebration of the goddess I'm married to.

Based on the books on your bookshelf, what conclusions would people draw about you?


I think this is a great question! If people saw my bookshelves, they would think:
1. She really likes to read.
2. She mostly likes non-fiction.
3. She likes self-help, religious and dating books a lot.
4. I wonder how many of these books she's actually read...
5. How does she find the time to read all of these books?
 
 
 
 
 
 
I changed my layout. I wanted something a little brighter than my last layout. It's not quite what I'm looking for, but it'll do :-) I really don't want a majority-white layout, and that seemed to be what the majority of the layouts were.
