Books are the best gift you can give to yourself. Not only books give you fascinating narratives, they stimulate your imaginations and blur the boundary of concrete beliefs.
Books make you “think” and teach you how you can “read between lines”. In the world where deception rules, books teach you how to reach the alternative and decide what is “right”.
Some book becomes a part of the canon; survive times to display their eternity with their timeless lessons. Others remain on one shelf of an era and become the source of information to understand a particular time/culture/people. Some tickle your bones while other send the chill down your spine.
So, how to decide which ones should we read first? The question is not an easy one. So, we decided to do a weekly series. Every week, we will post 5 books that one must read.
The list will comprise of both the classic and the contemporary works. Hope you will the series useful. As we go along, we would love to hear your suggestions. So, shall we begin?
