Five favorite books I have read and Five I want to read

“A room without a book is like a body without a soul” (Cicero)
A poet has defined books as best friends of everyone. The book plays a vital role in our life; they inspire us to do all of the best things in our life. They make us a perfect person. The books are our guide, our true well-wisher and books overcome our failures. Books are our best companions, which teach us unconditionally and even didn’t ask anything in return. The Books bring positivity in our life and it also helps at certain times when there no one else is with us.

Benefits of book reading

Reading the book is the most interesting thing ever, it has so many benefits as;

Teach positive values, spirituality, and love

Good story books teach us good moral and ethical lessons. Reading gives you some positive values and these values reflect the character of the individual as well as spirituality.

Make us intelligent

We gain a lot of knowledge almost about every single thing from books that’s why I said that it makes us intelligent. Reading books especially like autobiographies of different personalities, philosophers, or successful persons inspires us much in achieving great things in our life.

Increases self-confidence, boost memory and imagination power

Novels and other books play a vital role in boosting memory and for reducing your stress and they help a lot in improving your vocabulary and of your concentration power. Reading books increases your self-confidence.

These are the library of information

A great personality said that books are a store of information. Knowledge always goes on increasing with time. We get information at any time by just reading a single book.
Abdul Kalam said that; ‘learning gives creativity and creativity leads to thinking, thinking provides knowledge and knowledge makes you great.

Five favorite books I have read

I’ve been a massive reader, my whole life and I read every book but like most to read poetry, novel, and scholarly research papers.

Crime and Punishment:

As I remember that the first book, I read that was the “Crime and Punishment” a novel by the Russian author Fyodor Dostoevsky. It is a very interesting novel, which was first published in the literary journal The Russian Messenger in twelve monthly installments during 1866. It was later published in a single volume and translated in different languages including Sindhi.

Shah jo Risalo

Being a Sindhi I have read “Shah jo Risalo”, the poetry of Shah Abdul Latif Bhittai.
Shah Abdul Latif Bhittai is also known as the poet of Sindh. He was a Sindhi Philosopher, Sufi scholar, mystic, saint, and poet, widely considered to be the greatest Muslim poet of the Sindhi language. Shah jo Risalo has 30 Surs including the Kalyan, Sarang, Surs i-e Momal Rano, Sasui Punho, and Umar Marvi.


I would like to share the name of a revolutionary Novel “Mother” written by Maxim Gorky. It was the first time published in 1906, and many translators translated into different languages including Urdu and Sindhi also made into several films. The novel Mother is famous around the globe because the political agenda behind the novel was clear and it is the great and long work of Maxim Gorky on the Russian revolutionary movement.

Aag Ka Darya

During university life, I was a massive reader, a regular member of the central library. The evening time from 8:30 PM to 11:00 PM was fixed for literature books at the central library or Hostel room. I have read many books in which one is the great novel “Aag Ka Darya” written by Qurratulain Hyder. This is a historical novel which is providing context to the traumatic partition of the Indian subcontinent into two nation-states.

Sindhu Ji Saanjah

One most important book I have read is “Sindhu Ji Saanjah” written by GM Syed. He was the revolutionary and nationalist politician of Sindh and he was the author of many books, in which the book “Sindhu Ji Saanjah” is most important. If a sandhi reader read this book before, it will help to understand correctly the Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind by Yuval Noah Harari.

Five books you want to read

As I am a massive reader and read everything, so it is very difficult to share the exact five names of books I want to read. But this month I have to read the Urdu translation of Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind by Yuval Noah Harari.
And other books are in the list of want to read are following;

  1. Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind by Yuval Noah Harari
  2. War and peace written by Leo Tolstoy
  3. The Red and The Black written by Stendhal
  4. The 21 lessons for 21st century written by Yuval Noah Harari
  5. The Art of happiness Written by Dalai Lama

  1. War and Peace is an incredible read! I picked it up as an assignment when I was in school and enjoyed it FAR more than I thought that I would. Definitely worth taking the time to check it out!

  2. Very interesting! Thank you for sharing. I’ve been reading a lot more during lockdown & I’m loving it. So I really needed some new book suggestions.

  3. It’s always great to hear about what other people like to read. Personally, Harry Potter, Percy Jackson (any of the series by Rick Riordan really) the Hunger Games, and the Black Witch are some of my favorites.
