Hello Brilliant Guys,
I've also been a great fan of books. Books are the store of wisdom and experience, a treasure house of knowledge, which broadens our outlook. We come to know our civilization, blessed by contact with great scholars, poets, and philosophers through them. They never misguide us. Here is something I can't resist myself to mention about the books:
Books are an excellent source of dissemination of useful ideas. They are useful tools to popularize the fruits of our research in various fields of knowledge. In fact, no single labor of human fruit has been as helpful to the advancement of civilization as books.
The kingdom of books is as vast as the universe. There are books on literature, science, fiction, history, art, culture, civilization, architecture, fashion, technology, philosophy, etc. Some books are for serious reading; some are intended to enrich our knowledge and learning. Many books give us an insight into the various aspect of life. Books on travel and adventure infuse into us a spirit of fearlessness and adventure. The reading of novels is a pleasant pastime for many of us. There is no sphere of life which has not been explored by the books.
As a matter of fact, surrounded by books as the student is, he is more like to be attracted to those books which on his prescribed course of study than general reading. As one’s interests grow, tastes are more specialized, and books are picked up for a variety of reasons not always connected with one’s vocation.
I've heard a lot of people asking for the recommendation of books for various purposes. Some ask for the preparation of competitive exams like JEE, SAT, etc. while some others ask for building the basics in a particular arena, and some others ask for general reading and entertainment.
