Very recently, at the last semester of my IITKGP life, after getting a job @nVidia bangalore, my lifestyle has taken a slight turn. I have added few new hobbies to my list. It includes Jogging, watching english movies and reading novels. I will devote yet another post on movies part, rather let me devote this post on my new hobby of reading novel. I am very very choosy while selecting the novel to read. To me reading novel/a good book is a process of enriching yourself, a way to understand the world, to have diverse outlook, to improve ones communication skill, to add new dimesions to your life. Thats why I a very much choosy while reading a new book. I usually prefers highly acclaimed, highly rated books and I relies on friends, wikipedia and orkuts to get information of good books. Very recently I came across an Orkut community named Only Good Books. The best thread of this community is on the best book read. This post will be concise list of the best books of that thread. So without blabbering more let me start listing the bests books that will hopefully be usefull for poor soul like me
