Imagine 1000 books that can change one's life Given that if we change we only do that supposedly for the better If there are 1000 of these books there must be so many bad things that one should discontinue if we are to believe this book After reading all these thousand of literary works one should end up as candidate to sainthoodSeriously I enjoy reading books because of the fact that they change my life I used to frown on homosexuals I used to worry on a lot of things I used to think that poor people are lazy or intellectually challenged I used to think that single people are lonely Those unjustified prejudices were rooted in my childhood beliefs basically stemming out from what I learned at home or in school during my formative years Voracious reading in the last 3 years helped me drop all of thoseI love book lists 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die Boxall's 501 Must Read Books Bloomsbury's TIME Magazine's 100 Best Novels Newsweek's Metalist 100 Pulitzer's Booker's Guardian's Modern Library etc I have all those lists and they influence not only which book to buy but which book to pick next Of course I still listen to some of my friends whose taste on books I have come to respect On top of all these I listen to my brother who has been a voracious and discriminating reader ever since we were in high school He was the one who made me the type of reader that I am today insatiable unuenchable and fearless When he says that a certain book is good I no longer care about its genre thickness era it was written theme etc In short if you are my friend and I believe in your taste tell me to read a book and I will read it as long as it is in the language I can understand by reading The reason why I am saying all these is that my brother lent me this book and it has been one of my guides since 2009 the year I started reading seriously and the year I discovered Goodreads So I did not pay for this book because after my brother read this he just passed this on to me I have been consulting this book for three years now and since I've read many parts of it I just read the other parts and viola I can now transfer this to my read folder During this second reading I have lined up in my mind the books that I have been missing during my what to read next routine Hence I will definitely be reading these books in 20131 Gravity's Rainbow by Thomas Pynchon the book that changed the life of Hari Kunzru2 We Need to Talk About Kevin by Lionel Shriver3 The Death of the Heart by Elizabeth Bowen4 The Railway Children by E S Nesbit5 Watership Down by Richard Adams6 The History of Tom Jones a Foundling by Henry Fielding the book that changed the life of Jonathan Coe7 The Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton8 A Suitable Boy by Vikram Seth9 South of the Border West of the Sun by Haruki Murakami the book that changed the life of Julie Myerson10 The French Lieutenant's Woman by John Fowles Et cetera too many to list downWhat makes this book seemingly an authority These were selected by known writers and their editors So they know the trade They are also bibliophiles even before I became one Besides life is too short for a hit and miss way of selecting your next read I suggest that you leave it to the experts There is a bigger chance of hitting all the best books before you expire
