WWW Wednesday Vol. 20

www_wednesdays43Hello book lovers! 

It’s Wednesday and time for another episode of WWW, the weekly book meme hosted by MizB of Should be Reading. To play along, we just have to answer the following three (3) questions…

• What are you currently reading?
• What did you recently finish reading?
• What do you think you’ll read next?

And here are my answers this week:

I am currently reading Life is a Pack of 52 cards by Sumeet Jain (I won it in a Goodreads Giveaway). In this book the author has documented some of his personal & professional life-experiences. I am reading 1 chapter at a time, grasping the information he has conveyed to the reader. Here is the blurb of the book –

 

52cardsLife is always a game of choices. It involves interplay of conclusions that we draw every day, depending upon our perception of life. 

As the perceptions change, so do the conclusions too. To some, life has always been half-full’ while others perceive it as half-empty’. Through this book, one can easily solder wire the brain, to look at life only and only as an offering ‘half-full’ instead of looking at it as half-empty. It is neither a book on Do’s and Don’ts nor is it some kind of a rule-book. It does not unveil any secret recipe of that magic potion either, which we have been searching for years.
The book, in reality, is a beautiful and honest compilation of author’s personal and professional experiences. It elucidates and describes the various teachings that life has offered to him over all these years. Life is not only stranger than we can ever imagine, it is mysterious as well. It is like a riddle, wrapped as an enigma. Life is also the single most complex process to be understood, after the human brain. Each one of us has a unique life to live and each one of us has to deal with it uniquely rendering it almost impossible to have one size that fits all. However, the book would surely help us create a framework, thus enabling us to lead and live our life better in bliss and in peace.
The author pledges to donate all proceeds from the sale of this book to Being Human Foundation dedicated to educating the underprivileged kids and undertaking healthcare measures for them. He firmly believes that while our earnings reflect how we make a living, our contributions to the society embody how we make a life.

At the same time I am reading Maya in search of Tantric Father by Vipin Behari Goyal too. This is the 1st time when I am trying to read two books at a time. Let’s see how I do in this try! 🙂 Here is the blurb of the book –

maya‘Maya in search of Tantric Father’ is a story of a young and pretty American girl, who is shocked to learn a secret from her deceased mother’s diary. Maya comes to India in search of her biological father, who was a Tantric. Out of sheer determination, she travels to many holy places in India, facing numerous difficulties, which any solo woman traveler would face in India. Some mysterious powers help, guide and protect her when she inadvertently walks into danger. Her spiritual pilgrimage is full of miracles and interesting encounters with a Philosopher, an Astrologer, an Ayurveda doctor, a Tantric, a Swami, a Professor, a Music maestro, and a bureaucrat. Some of them fall in love with her but she has no time to reciprocate. Her only mission is a search and she cannot afford any distractions. Could she find what she was searching for?

I recently finished reading Charlotte’s Web by E.B. White. It was a gift from Bibliobeth. Re-reading the book was so much fun. You can read my review here.

Regarding the book I will read next, I think I should leave it on time! 🙂

    1. thanks for the feedback Cleo! 🙂
      Yeah reading two books at a time is not my cup of tea, even. Since both the books are of two genres I am giving it a try, lets see how I do 🙂

Would love to hear your thoughts.........
