Here are some of the Books that I’ve read, loved , hated and are in  my current reading list.

“What really knocks me out is a book that, when you’re all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it. That doesn’t happen much, though.”  –  J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye
