On the fabulous occasion of World Book Day I thought I’d share the names of the books I’m reading which is coincidentally the post I was working on next anyway!
I usually read 2 or 3 books at a time, two on Kindle and one print book. Usually I go for a mix of fiction and nonfiction. I try not to read fiction in the same genre that I’m writing, but anything by the master is always welcome.
The Fisher Queen’s Dynasty by Kavita Kane
I recently finished reading this book, my first by this author. Though I knew a lot of the story beforehand I enjoyed reading it and I plan to add more books of hers to my ever-burgeoning TBR pile.
Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind by Yuval Noah Harari
Several readers in the readers group I’m a part of recommend this book. I picked it up and though I’m only a quarter of the way through, so far I find it a fascinating look at how our species came about.
The Four-hour Workweek by Tim Ferris
I had been curious about this one for some time and finally ordered the print version. I am not a great fan of self-help books in my adulthood, having consumed tons of them during adolescence. I’ve made good progress on this one and I’m halfway through now. It has thrown up some good ideas which I intend to try out in the near future.
Men without Women by Haruki Murukami
I needed a break from all the nonfiction I was reading so I chose this and of course I don’t regret it. His stories are inexplicably simple and well-written and thought-provoking at the same time.
What have you been reading lately?
I like hearing what you’re reading!
Thanks Nina! I follow your book-reading lists as well and use them to swell up my TBR pile!
Heard lot about Kavita Kane and Marukami but never got a chance to read them. I finished Arundhati Roy’s Ministry of Utmost Happiness which I recommend as well as a rom-com on Kindle. I am reading Shantaram for the third time, first was way back in 2007 when I was high on the city, kindle rom-com Bombay Heights and a friend book Brand You-The Theater Way on how to make things better the theater and acting way. She is Vinita Vyas, actor and theater person. Check her book.
Wow you’ve added quite a few to my list! I’ll check out the ones you’ve recommended!
