Someone asked me “How many books you have read so far”
I was stumped at this question. It reminded me that I was wasting my time. So I had made resolution last year and I am sure that many of us made resolutions to read more books this year. Let me share one interesting thing, I don’t have a passion for reading books , but slowly & steadily, I have developed a habit of reading. In my experience, reading a book is a lot like watching a movie.
Sometimes you finish it, sometimes you don’t. Sometimes, when you do finish it, you can’t remember anything from it. But, on occasion, you come across one that can change the way you think and live (hopefully for the better).
Below is a list of books that I have read so far
I Too Had A Love Story

Paulo Coelho – Aleph
A novel by the author of The Alchemist.
Aleph marks a return to Paulo Coelho’s beginnings. In a frank and surprising personal story, one of the world’s most beloved authors embarks on a remarkable and transformative journey of self-discovery.
Facing a grave crisis of faith, and seeking a path of spiritual renewal and growth, Paulo decides to start over: to travel, to experiment, to reconnect with people and the world. On this journey through Europe, Africa, and Asia, he will again meet Hilal—the woman he loved 500 years before—an encounter that will initiate a mystical voyage through time and space, through past and present, in search of himself.
Aleph is an encounter with our fears and our sins; a search for love and forgiveness, and the courage to confront the inevitable challenges of life.

Veena Venugopal – Would you like some bread with that book?
