Man's search for Meaning

 https://amzn.to/2TTdFP9


A prominent Viennese psychiatrist before the war, Viktor Frankl was uniquely able to observe the way that both he and others in Auschwitz coped (or didn't) with the experience. He noticed that it was the men who comforted others and who gave away their last piece of bread who survived the longest - and who offered proof that everything can be taken away from us except the ability to choose our attitude in any given set of circumstances.




The sort of person the concentration camp prisoner became was the result of an inner decision and not of camp influences alone. Frankl came to believe man's deepest desire is to search for meaning and purpose. This outstanding work offers us all a way to transcend suffering and find significance in the art of living.

Eragon

 Eragon: Christopher Paolini (The Inheritance Cycle) is the story of Eragon, who finds a polished stone one fine morning while hunting meat for his family. Eragon feels that it’s a magical stone which would help him buy meat for his family and with that expectation he goes to buy meat but is unfortunately turned down with disappointment when he could not buy any. It is then revealed to him that the polished stone is actually a dragon’s egg and is about to hatch. As the fledgling comes out of the polished hard shell, Eragon realises the real purpose of having found it. Something greater than fetching meat for his family awaits him. Eragon’s life changes overnight and he is forced to take up the dangerous adventures of a new world of magic, power, and destiny. The only weapon of protection that he has is the ancient sword and the piece of advice that an old storyteller gave for his guidance. Eragon starts his adventure with the young dragon and finds the way to the dark world of dangerous terrain and frightening enemies, who inhabit that dark world of the Empire ruled by an extremely evil ruler. Eragon thus becomes the hero on whom the destiny of the Empire depends. This book was published by RHUK in the year 2005. It is available in paperback.

Books helping you to Smile

 Times are really Hard. The pandemic is roaring with all its might. Everyone of us has faced the situation for the last one year. Our day to day life has changed, The jetsetters have been brought down to earth & forced to stay at home. The society has been turned upside down . Never thought of things before have now become normal. The kids are locked up in their houses. Forget the kids, we grownups, so proud of our jobs, our lifestyles, our shining cars, the glamarous parties we have thrown or attended, have suddenly found ourselves at par with those unemployed , whiling away our days tinkering in the garden or simply doing nothing at all. All these things have practically resulted in wiping off the smiles on our faces.

There is however a silver lining for booklovers like us. We can just flick a book open & there we are in a  completely different world, living a completely different life far away from the troubles of this world. There we are engrossed in a make believe world, crying, laughing & enjoying with our characters .

I would like to put a question in front of all of you in this situation. Your answer is going to bring a new shine, a new sunshine for others. Just tell us which were the books which actually brought a smile on your face. Just list the books for everyone's benefit.

Tycoon by Harold Robbins

https://amzn.to/3sf3sIkSexy, outrageous and irresistible, Tycoon is Harold Robbins at his rip-roaring best.

Jack Lear rises from a modest Jewish background to take on the WASP world, but never quite feels he's succeeded in his ambition to be accepted as one of them. Making his fortune as a pioneering radio and television broadcaster and founding a landmark network isn't enough - nor is the money, fame and women who go with it. He continues to hunger for what he cannot have.

Here is a tale that only Harold Robbins could tell: of Jack's torrid relationship with his first wife, a WASP social heiress; of his affairs with everybody from chamber maids to duchesses; of his second marriage to a world-class beauty and society figure; and ultimately of his life-long struggle to make his network No. 1, and to give it a sense of class that sets it apart from all the others.
