Top 15 books for me so far

“For some of us, books are as important as almost anything else on earth. What a miracle it is that out of these small, flat, rigid squares of paper unfolds world after world after world, worlds that sing to you, comfort and quiet or excite you. Books help us understand who we are and how we are to behave. They show us what community and friendship mean; they show us how to live and die.” 
― Anne Lamott, Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life

I thought that from time to time I would do a post like this and i feel that this is the appropriate time to do the first. I am happy that i have read a good number of books and i don’t remember the count either. From my experience this is a worthy list of 15 in no particular order.

1) The Razor’s edge by Somerset Maugham

2) Into the wild by Jon Krakeuer

3)War and Peace by Tolstoy

4)Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

5) Wuthering heights by Charolette Bronte

6) Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts

7) What I talk about when i talk about running by Haruki Murakami

8)Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden

9) Lord of the Rings by JRR Tolkein

10) Kite Runner Khaleid Hussaini

11) Roots by Alex Haley

12)Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand

13) Great Expectations by Charles Dickens

14)One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez

15)Papillon-Henri charriere

    That’s a great list. You too can come up with a book like ‘The Education of a Wandering Man’. You read that much.
