I made a conscious effort this year to read more.
I am still having fallow weeks of not reading a single page interspersed with weeks in which I devour more than three hundred pages and will need to discipline myself to be more consistent next year.
I have been more into audio books for last two years, but decided to switch back to ebooks at the start of this year.
I so wish I get time to write about all these books. For now, I will just recommend to you Les Misérables. Les Misérables is one book which is going to stay with me forever.
Below Biblical line paraphrased in the book captures its essence:--
"There will be more joy in heaven over the tears of a repentant sinner than over the white robes of a hundred just men."
