Top 10 books that have affected or shaped me as a person :

1) Harry Potter series (all of them,i wrote series because each book has been equally enjoyed and cherished by me since i was 10 years of age )

2)Lord of the rings(trilogy):Admittedly, I was exposed to JRR Tolkiens work after i saw the movies(which i understood finally when i was 12 or something) and i finished them just three years back..Someone has rightly said..there are two types of English book readers in the world: The ones who have read LOTR and the others who are going to..

3)Mahabharata: Oh how can i forget this epic...theres nothing more to say...

4)Romeo and Juliet : I dunno, i received an English adaptation and just began to read....until I was literally crying for the fate of protagonists..heart-wrenching tale..that has inspired almost every romantic movie(especially indian ones) in some way or the other..

5)The Hobbit : The reason it is different from LOTR....well only a true JRR Tolkien fan would understand...

6) My experiments with truth : Well i thought it would be boring..i was never so wrong in my life...

7)A Briefer history of time : Stephen Hawking is cool...just accept it...

8)Surely you are joking Mr. Feynmen ? : You havent read it ? Surely you are joking !
9)Steve jobs(by Walter Isaacson) : Give it a shot if you were an admirer/fan/hater of Steve Jobs :-P

10)Hamlet : (Warning : This one is really dark...i mean really...) Arguably the greatest work of Shakespeare, nuff said..






Since, I dont know anyone here personally and for courtesy's sake,i nominate YOU to take this Bookbucket challenge   :O)






 
All you have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to you....
