Every now and then, I have a few friends who would like recommendations on books to read. Books have been around for a very long, long time. It is the quintessential written word. No other medium can replace the physical book, just like modern vehicles can’t replace the bicycle. Books bring us knowledge, imagination, lessons learnt and plenty of escape. They last from one generation to another and make us better human beings. Here are some books I recommend for you to read.
