Find out the 5 books which can help you get back to reading:
I remember back when I was a child, I used to spend all my pocket money on books. My mother would never take me to a bookshop because if she would, I’d never get out of that place in time. So many years down the lane, I realized that even though I have always had the reading bug, I have failed terribly to revive it. So I began searching for the most important books that I should read. I found some, out of which I compiled the top 5 for all of you who are, just like me, aiming to get back to books.
