Sometimes the answers to the thousand (and one!) questions in your head are staring at you from the pages of your favourite books. Would you agree? When you read, it’s amazing how the answers to the questions you have can jump out from the book you have in your hand. That’s how it has always been for me…I can’t remember when I begun calculating the habit of reading. But I’m so glad that I take refuge in reading from life’s sporadic madness. Yet, I regret that due to my busy schedule, I haven’t read anywhere near the number of great books published across the globe.

Nevertheless, here are mini reviews of  few of my Favourite Books to start the ball rolling:

The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho


You’ll either endear or despise this book where the central theme is on spiritual truth/wisdom. Some choose to say it’s about taking risks to follow your dream while a group of others are inclined to refute by saying that it encourages a single-minded pursuit of something for selfish reasons. A quick note that the Alchemist is an international bestseller; with more than 65 million copies in 56 different languages having been sold; setting the Guinness World Record for being the most translated book by a living author, Coelho.
