  1. "Hard thing about hard things" by Ben Hirowitz because I've heard it's a very good book to learn good practices about business.
  2. "Three checklist manifesto" by Atul Gawande because my mentor told me to read it
  3. "Parallel worlds" by Michio Kaku because I read it several years ago and I just want to read it again and let me tell you it's amazing.

Somethings you just gotta believe, else the universe makes you believe anyways.. ;op
i am not an avid reader, i don't despise reading but i consciously stay away from reading...
Now this book just came calling out to me... i was given this book to read despite my refusal to do so (on several occasions), it simply kept coming back to me... not that the book needed me... it turned out that this book was THE THING that i needed MOST at that point in time and from then on it's ingrained in me..

i have ever since gotten better at what i do ~ Healing ~
i've become a better person overall and am able to progress even further...
The book is "Silva Mind Control Method".. although i read this book ages ago.. i still read a few pages here and there whenever i feel like.. This book gives an explanation to the process and effects of meditation and how to harness the power of our minds to an extent that it can affect even others' lives.. This one really changed my life for the better...!!!

Currently, I am reading The Bhagwad Gita.
This book really makes one understand that this life is a journey we should not seek material pleasure too heartedly.
It helps the human being seek satisfaction, which most of us lack.
And the messages it gives are applicable to each and every sect , race and religion that human beings follow.

I just finished reading the final chapter of Sarah J. Maars novel Kingdom Of Ash. I read it because I like the novel. The story is captivating and full of wonders. There's a different world created that just captures your imagination. Try reading it. You'll love it

Everyone loves a good story, the things you can write about in books can be hard to translate to movies and tv shows.

The Art Of Happiness - Dalai Lama and Howard C. Cutler

Why ?

Because I have heard about Dalai Lama so many times and when I saw this book, I just wanted to read his thoughts on life and other things. This book is such a good source of knowledge about so many little things in our life, which we usually ignore daily.

I usually read 3–4 books at the same time. I tend to combine fiction and non-fiction, so I switch from one to another whenever I feel like it. Currently, the list is:
  • Man’s Search for Meaning by Victor Frankl: It’s the first book I’m reading that’s written by a holocaust survivor. I had the first part of the book as a reading for one of my compulsory English papers in college, so I’m really excited about reading the rest of it!
  • The Remembered Village by M.N. Srinivas: Srinivas is one of India’s renowned social anthropologists who advocated the field view as opposed to the book view in understanding Indian social reality. The book is an account of his stay in Rampura village and reads almost like a story, while giving detailed descriptions about village life, caste relations and gender.
  • On Ethics and Economics by Amartya Sen: I’m reading this because it’s by Sen and it’s short.
I’ve just finished The Palace of Illusions by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni and Why Nations Fail by Acemoglu and Robinson. After this, I’ll be reading Jeffrey Sachs’ The End of Poverty and Robert Galbraith’s Cormoran Strike series. I can’t wait!
