Books Read in 2016- 1

Before I begin this post, you may be interested in the list of books I read in 2015. The list goes here.  I had managed to read 35 books last year and how things are looking I may reach the same numbers this year too.

I used to review books and had done for a few publishing house and authors but after a time one must stop working for free, so I stopped. Presented below is first 10 in the list with small snippets on the book  or anything that the book reminds me of.

As a reader I would love to know

  1. Have you read any of these ?
  2. Any book you would recommend


  1. Dharma Bums by Jack Kerouac : I am a big fan of On the road by Jack, so I picked this one. Decent read, you may or may not like it.
  2. The Road by Jack London: I think Jack London needs no introduction. This book is considered to be a autobiography of his earlier days. Truly amazing, loved it.
  3. The Great Railway Bazaar by Paul Theroux : Sit on a train and enjoy the ride. If you are a travel enthusiast, this is your book. I think sometime, someday would love to take this route.
  4. Buddha in blue jeans by Tai Sherdian: Pondering on meditation, a short book like this may get you started.
  5. The Complete Maus by Art Spiegelman: This books needs no introduction, mus must read on World War and horrors of war
  6. The importance of being Earnest by Oscar Wilde: A funny play by Oscar Wilde, pick it up for a easy, joy read.
  7. Norwegian Wood byMurakami : The book that made me a fan of Murakami. One specialty of this book was that it was so engrossing that even while returning from business trips I managed to read a major part of it on flights.
  8. Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carrol: What a take on Philosophy
  9. Selected Short Stories by Jack London: Amazingly different kind of stories that you will get to read.
  10. Narcissus and Golmumd by Hermann Hesse: Amazing read on two lives, different paths, same goals

    We are more magazine readers subscribing to the NatGeo ones (standard issues and the history one). But you sure have an impressive list there!

    1. I would also love to subscribe those if i can afford

  5. Read all of Hesse’s years back plus read the two in your photo; both of which I liked. If you want a list of my 5 out of 5 books go to but before you do, keep in mind I enjoy books not only by Canadian authors, but world authors.

    I’d recommend read Paper Towns. *If you like the young adult genre.
    Otherwise, Three Men in a Boat.

    1. Will try Paper Towns
