    What kind of books would you recommend for me?

    Well I am 25 and I am an internee at KPMG. I never had interest in reading books until recently. A couple of months back I started reading books and as they say 'progress begets progress', I am observing an increase not only in my efficiency to read books but in my urge to keep reading more and more stuff.
    Can you guys give me a few titles that I can incorporate in my checklist.
    thanks

    "Person" by Sam Pink
    "Help! A Bear is Eating Me!" by Mykle Hansen
    "The Gospel of Anarchy" by Justin Taylor

    The first thing you need to do is figure out what want to read. There are thousands of books out there. I could tell to you to read them all. You need to know what kind of books you are interested in reading. This will help not only others, nut yourself included to find books that you enjoy reading.

    Comedy
    Thriller
    Action
    Romance
    Mystery

    This list goes on. When you figure out what kind off books you want to read. It will narrow it down for others to be able to give you the best possible answer!

      yeah such books can be calming but you should not allow such books to influence your mind because such books take you away from reality. Your rational thoughts can be dented if you start believing in such books.
