Books of 2010

Here's a famous quote from Charles Jones; "You will be the same person in five years as you are today except for the people you meet and the books you read." I don't mean to brag but for the sake of keeping an online record for myself or whoever that might be interested - like I have always been doing for many years - here's my list of books read in 2010 . My personal favourites are in bold . In total, I read an average of 2.25 books a month. The list below does not take into account tonnes of other reading materials i.e. academic journals, textbooks and magazines. 1. What Your Teacher Didn't Tell You - Farish Noor 2. Malaya's First Year at the United Nations - Tawfik and Ooi 3. Malaysia: The Road to Independence - Tunku Abdul Rahman 4. Raden Saleh: Anak Belanda, Mooi Indie & Nasionalisme - Harsja Bachtiar, Peter Carey & Onghokham ( Indonesian ) 5. A Short History of the Revivalist Movement in Islam - Sayyid Abul A'la Mawdudi 6.
