A guide to the world of Books

By  |  0 Comments

A book is worth a lot more than what you think it is. It is an infinite sea of knowledge where the more you absorb, the better it is. A good book makes you think. It helps you to feel, think, and experience things that you may not seen or heard in your daily life. It takes you to a world that you can call your own. It gives you different perspectives which in turn help you to create a dynamic personality of your own self. A book is like a picnic spot. You go, get absorbed, come back rejuvenated. Yes, books do that to you.

I have had innumerable moments when I was spellbound when I finished a book, when I was awestruck by the clarity of writing of the author. I have had moments when I imagined myself to be a part of the book and experienced all the adventures that the characters are having. I have laughed heartily when I read a comic scene, and cried my heart out when I read a tragedy. And yes, I am not exaggerating at all. Trust me; a good book gives you all the pleasures in the world.

Books do not limit themselves to any one genre. You can find a wide variety of genre like comedy, drama, tragedy, erotic, plays, short stories and so many more. Name any topic of your interest and you will find a book on it.

Reading books is fun. It also is a learning experience. It tells you about things that probably you will never see physically in your life. It tells you stories that can inspire you to be an inspiration for someone else! They can be enjoyed like a hobby, can be taken seriously as a part of a learning method. Reading books is one of the healthiest habits you can have to keep your mind awake.

There are many of you who wish to inculcate the habit of reading. There are many who have realized the importance of reading and now wish to take the habit further.
Also, there are many teenagers or young adults or even middle aged people who have been away from books (except the study material) all this time! To all of you, here is a list of books that will not only inculcate the habit of reading but also will make you love reading like never before!

All the nine books mentioned above cover a wide array of genre. While Agatha Christie’s novels describe crimes and mysteries, Dan Brown’s Da Vinci Code is a science fiction book combined with some real facts. Who Moved My Cheese, The One Minute Manager are self-help books. Jhumpa Lahiri’s Namesake and Sudha Murty’s Dollar Bahu are stories that make you realize the situation of our society and the complexities of emotions of the human mind. Paulo Coelho’s The Alchemist takes you through a long journey where once you come back, you are a new person, full of energy and a desire to have a path in life. Nicholas Sparks’ The Notebook is a beautiful romantic novel which moves your heart. I cried a lot while reading this one! And, The Diary of Anne Frank is an autobiography of Anne Frank, a Jew girl who was trapped in Nazi Germany. So much diversity! Just like I told you before, every book has something different and beautiful to offer and every book here is worth a read.
