    Many people have reading habits. We read so many books. But a few of them will have a indelible mark and remain in our memory.

    It could be a book that we read when we were a student or may be later when we were in job or even may be after retirement from active service.

    Can you name one such book that impressed you a lot. Can you share it's name.

    I liked 'Gulliver's travel' by Jonathan Swift. It is still intact in my memory.

      "Saint Maybe" by Anne Tyler. I just wrote about this book.

    I wouldn't say the following are the best of the best in my opinion; rather, these two books are especially remarkable in relation to the other ones I've read recently:

    First, VS Naipaul's Magic Seeds. Although a sequel, one can read this as a standalone. One of his later books, and Naipaul seemed to be toning down on his calls for intellectual despotism. Invariably, this book also deals with postcolonial subjectivity, racial/cultural assimilation, different notions of civility, and the ties between culture and civility.

    Second, Medical Law and Ethics, a book I was introduced to in an elementary Medical Humanities class. Very interesting: it focuses on the intersection between (i) legal and ethical practices and (ii) medical practice, professional accountability, and physicians' attitudes toward "patients," and (iii) the dehumanizing tenor of the word "patient."

    Armor or Courtship Rite, I can't decide.
