READING IS a delightful hobby and books are your best friends. But reading a book becomes such a pleasurable exercise, if it is both well written and well received. This rings true of J.K.Rowling's "Harry Potter And The Order Of Phoenix", which is standing out like a colossus to other books in the fiction category. Former First Lady and Senator, Hillary Clinton's "Living History: Memoirs" has slipped into the second place as Dr. Spencer Johnson's "Who Moved My Cheese" has come to occupy the leading position in the non-fiction category. Booker Prize winner, Arundhati Roy's highly absorbing "The God Of Small Things" - made a surprise entry, last week - has made a departure.
