Book recommendations

Sometimes I go through phases of itching to read, but find myself scratching my head not knowing what to read. If you are like me, and would like to have a collection of recommendations to fall back on when the impulse strikes, here’s a link.

If you have a list of go-to recommendations, do let me know in your comments.

  1. I have not read any in the list nor marked them to read.
    interestingly, I have added quite a few books to my read list today…some are Biographies- Colin Powel’s My american Journey, Indira Gandhi’s,mother Teresa’s, also added some Historical fiction of Mughal empire time-Indu Sundaresan’s has few feast of roses, twentieth wife, splendor of silence etc. Also marked some from british era- Under the peacock fan, Dal& Rice

    I remeber the ( sorry)days I studied indian history, world History etc without much understanding or where those places are or events mean. I feel, i will have better understanding if I read the above books about History. some are fictional but i think close to reality. Last week picked up The shack and one of Nora Roberts. yet to start.
    anything you find interesting?

    Lovely recommendations Shy. Thanks! History classes used to be nightmare. We were made to memorize stuff form a cyclopedia. No wonder it repelled us from learning history.

    I am still on Steve Jobs. It’s so embarrassing. I have been roaming around with this book for so long. Used to read a lot during my pumping sessions, now that I am off the pump I have to figure other ways to incorporate some reading time.

    I want to read Young Adult fiction after this (NPR has a series on this, want to piggyback on that – you get to ask questions to authors, how cool is that!). Also others in my mind are – Food Rules, and Outliers. I have also heard great things about Shiva trilogy by Amish Tripathi – http://www.amazon.com/Immortals-Meluha-Amish-Tripathi/dp/9380658540/ref=pd_sim_b_3
