How I read 40+ Books in 2017


There is a proverb that a man's best friend is a dog. Another one that goes with the dog is a book. Only if one is a bookish nerd. 

I am not a voracious reader, but yes, I do manage or try to touch up to 50 books a year. This year, I did read 40+ books and wanted to share how one can manage to read more than 10 or 20 books.

  • If you find the books too hard to purchase from a bookstore, make an amazon account.
  • Next, download the kindle app in your cell. 
  • Next, search your favorite book in the website. Generally, the price of the book for the kindle app will be less than the purchasing cost. In some cases, it will also be free. 
  • Download the book in your app and start reading.

It is not the end of the story yet. 

Resolve to read at least 10 pages a day from kindle app. That way, you can end up with generally 2 books a month. 

Of course, if you are an advocate of reading physical books, that's wonderful and great! Nothing can substitute the feel and the smell of the book while it's in your hand. In this case, try to read 15 or 20 pages a day.

I followed both these approaches. Until I purchased my kindle app, because of my dad, I would purchase books and still do sometimes.

Some of my favorite books that I read were generally sourced from Goodreads, a website that connects books and authors to people and much more.

The books that left any impact on me this year are:

1. The Mahabharat Secret- By Christopher Doyle

2.  Autobiography of an Avadhoot - By Avadhoota Nadananda ( Part 1 and 2) 

3.  Dhanwantari- By Harish Johri

Just some thoughts on books.
