I have been keeping Discovery of India by Nehru on hold for a long time. I would continue to do so. I plan to finish a technical book first and I have already started reading Isaac Asimov, The complete stories, Volume 1.
IATCSv1 is a collection of his short stories and would take me a really long time to finish. From the foreword :
"There'll be more volumes, but begin by reading this one. You will make an old man very
happy, you know." - Isaac Asimov (March 1990).
