This paperback book was bought from a stall in Hoveton St. John church (3 for £1).

It contains several short stories.
The Unknown Errors of our Lives:- Review "I wasn't expecting this book to consist of short stories as I'm not usually a big fan of these. However I enjoyed this one and empathised with Mrs. Dutta who had moved from India to the USA to live with her son and daughter-in-law and their family after the death of her husband. She was used to hanging her laundry out to dry which was frowned upon in her new home. (I too had this problem when visiting my sister-in-law in the USA but she did sympathise and provided a clothesline in her yard or garden as we like to say in the UK). I was happy with how the problem was finally resolved and will probably read the other stories hoping they will be as good as the first one.

I read around half of the stories in this book but have decided not to read any more. The contents of the ones I did read was quite enjoyable but I've never been fond of short stories in general so am reserving the book for Snoopy56 who enjoys books about India, I think.

Please also say what you intend to do with the book next. Thanks for coming onto the site to let me know you have found the book.

I already have books travelling in many countries around the world-a list can be found on my bookcrossing profile.

When re-releasing this book please be aware that airports are not a good place to leave books unless they have a specific book exchange shelf or area, due to security problems, so they may well just be disposed of. Also charity shops may well discard books that have been labelled in any way and they mostly chose only the books in the very best condition
to place on their shelves and discard the rest-so another bad release option.

This looks like a book for dipping in and out of. Generally I enjoy stories about India.
