My favorite books

 
 I'm a minimalist when it comes to clothes, jewelry, shoes, bags etc.  But I can't say the same when it comes to books. I invest a good amount of money on books every year. I believe that a single idea or an "aha-moment" can change our lives forever. Such ideas or inspirations can come from interacting with people from different walks of life, which is definitely THE best option. But as I said in my previous post, I need to make time for meeting new people and having conversations that elevate my current thinking models. Given the various constraints (both within and external), books seem to be the second best option.

Every few months, a book lands up on my lap and creates such an impact that I wonder why I didn't read it earlier.

On the occasion of World Book Day (Apr 23rd), here is my list of favorite books in no particular order (well, except the first!).
  1. Harry Potter series (Yes, right at the top always!)
  2. All books of RK Narayan
  3. All books of Ruskin Bond, the latest favorite being "A book of simple living"
  4. Six thinking hats by Edward Debono
  5. New Earth by Eckhart Tolle
  6. Ikigai by Hector Garcia
  7. The Gita for children by Roopa Pai
  8. Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin
  9. Deep Work by Cal Newport
  10. Digital Minimalism by Cal Newport
  11. Start with Why by Simon Senek
  12. Drive by Daniel Pink
  13. Predictably Irrational by Dan Ariely
  14. Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert
  15. Aaraam Thinai by Dr. Sivaraman (Tamil)
  16. The leader who had no title by Robin Sharma
  17. Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom
  18. The last lecture by Randy Pausch
