29th July 2016: The Valkyries by Paulo Coelho: This was my fourth book by Paulo, Winner Stands alone,The Alchemist and The Pilgrimage being the first three. I found the concept represented in it is to be an amalgam of The Alchemist and The Pilgrimage with added flavor of struggling relationship of husband wife.
15th August 2016: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
27th June 2016: Playing it my way by Boria Majumdar and Sachin Tendulkar: Autobiography of God of cricket Sachin Tendulkar. If I were to describe it in a line: Idealism to the level of dullness. One expects to experience the various faces of a person in an (auto)biography, but disappointingly it does not touch any controversial topic either on Sachin or cricket.

25th Feb 2016: Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll (Audio book from librivox)
After Alice's Adventures in Wonderland this was my second book on nonsense literature this year. I was enjoying the book initially, but later it became overdose of nonsense and listening to it made it worse.
I realized that interest in an audio book is proportional to the speaking style and accent of narrator, the clearer the narration is the more interest to the audio book.
I would suggest adults not to touch this book until you are to narrate this to your babies.
23rd Feb 2016: The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank
Powerful, disturbing, amusing, all in a single book. I felt the mood swings of a teen, it was like she is talking to me and elaborating her daily ups and downs...
It's astonishing to see such powerful things coming from a 13 years old.
8th Feb 2016: RabbitMq essentials by David Dossot
This book took me more than a month to complete :D, I started it with new year and read this in parallel with other books.
Well structured book I Must say. First few chapters elucidated every detail of rabbitMq basics in such a way that one is bound to appreciate the discourse. Code examples are in Java which were not very difficult to understand even for a programmer like me who never wrote java out of college *(exams). Few chapters, however, in last part of book were not that explanatory, I almost skimmed chapter 6 and 8.
Apart from the vast knowledge, there is something else which I gained by reading the book. For submitting a typo error in the book at Packt Publishers, they awarded a token to buy an e-book for free.
I am planning to write few blogs on rabbitMq after getting more hands on it.

22nd Jan 2016: The economic system of Islam Review
7th Jan 2016: Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll (Audio book from librivox)
Amusing tale of little Alice, I never heard/listened this story before and as an adult, on every page I was expecting some “real” adventure of some heroic and villainous role but never found any :D. But this is how children's books are. However, I realized *(felt) the role of Alice heroic and inspiring because of some of these reasons ->
1. Her knowledge at this tender age of 6.
2. Her curiosity and habit of questioning everything.
3. How she talks with herself during empty times.
A must read for all the children.
