The Reading List

Reading is an interesting hobby. There are more reasons for a student to read books (novels, short stories, etc) other than interest.

-Books widen your vocabulary.

-Books improve your cognitive skills.

-Books expand your view of the world.

Most of the students would already have a to-read list. Here are few books that are worth reading.

Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
This is an interesting book about a scientist who creates a grotesque but sapient creature and what happens after. It is a must read. A little slow as it starts but soon it would not let you raise your eyes from the book. Worth a read.

This Side of Paradise by F. Scott Fitzgerald
A book that would strike a familiar note in many students' head. It is about a student realizing that life is completely different in the college. After his graduation he has to look for his self again.

1984 by George Orwell
A book that would leave you with many questions. Perhaps what many call a heavy book but shall be read atleast once.

Gulliver's Travels by Jonathan Swift
We have all read one or two parts of this book in school. However, its true essence can be seen if we read all the four parts of the book. It is a must read.

Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
