Let me start the proceedings of this post with a famous quote:
“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies . . .
The man who never reads lives only one.”
I adore reading due to the fact this habit envisages both intelligence and ingenious amplitude. No wonder I feel I am eligible to draft this blog as I completed hundreds of treatises and gained ample knowledge to talk about this topic.
Every book we read is one of a kind. Every book we relish is packed with innumerable emotions like inspiration, spine chill, adrenaline rush, motivation, sadness, happiness, joy, endurance, and so on. I can’t postulate and force myself to savor those groupings because I am frenzy for a few categories of the read.
To the benefit of my blog readers, I am hereby presenting the list of genres I love reading, rather I call this a long list of categories that give me resplendencies. Let me present you the sturdy reasons I consider to start reading instead I don’t regret the purchase or pick-up.
There are many reasons to consider self-help as my go-to pick, first and foremost these books are the granary of incitement. This genre will never disappoint with its content and expound. I am proud to convey that 60% of the books I picked last year are in the self-help category. No doubt self-help books are to be considered as self-therapy.
The key highlight of self-help books is those books can be both casual and serious read. If you are a casual reader you can pick any random chapter and start reading, if you are a serious reader you will have a notepad alongside to annotate the key take-aways.

I remember the quote by the famous poet Robert Frost – “Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and. the thought has found words“. Being a poet involves tons of imagination, quintals of creativity, enormous inventiveness, a tinge of artistry, and crumbs of wit. Poetry can bring despair and contentment simultaneously.
It can also ignite your rebellion and march you towards inventiveness through the power of portrayal. While modern-day poetry is being illuminated in whispers of love and romance, for me poetry is the resonance of emotional symphony and a labyrinth of sensuality

- The Tirukkural aka Kural By Tiruvalluvar aka Valluvar

I strongly believe in cultivating literary articulation starting from a young age. There are a handful of authors proficient in presenting both fascinating and intricating. Interestingly contemporaneous authors add an extra blend of illustrative exemplification to support their writing, this will not only help the young readers to visualize but enable better swotting.
I am a big fan of authors who especially write on our ancient epics and puranas, this is also a good aid for parents to encourage the spree of reading in kids. I am equally interested in new-age fantasy, and sci-fi that help revamp the futuristic visionary.

The Pandemic paved the way to prepare and try the delicacies that are famous across the state, nation, and even continents. As we were highly dependent on making videos, author-turned-chefs and cuisiniers succored readers with detailed making procedures along with pictures which turned out to be BEST-SELLERS in due course. In fact, I read and tried many recipes from the recent reads and treated my taste buds.
