10 best books to carry with you for your upcoming trip..

I love to call myself a book-lover. There is a perfect blend of nostalgia and self love associated with it. I chose to write on this topic after confron

ting my best escape mechanism from my worst of travel experiences.

Since I do not like to travel, journey of any sort tends to make me uncomfortable, and to such an extent that my peace of mind is compromised. There are a couple of ways outs, however, nothing beats the company of a good book.

Over the course of time with a lot of reading, I identified that for me a short book vis a vis a heavy read is better for journeys, and in the current context a short book would be something not more than 500 pages.

The following is the carefully curated list of 10 best books as your travel partner - 

1. The Old Man & The Sea - An award winning short novel by Ernest Hemingway​

2. In Other Words - A non fiction by Jhumpa Lahiri on her love for the Italian language

3. A Room of One's Own - A widely recognized feminist literary criticism written by Virginia Woolf

4. The Animal Farm - An all time must-read satire on leadership and political set-up, written by George Orwell

5. Battle Hymn of Tiger Mother - The phenomenal book by Amy Chua on the difference in upbringing in the East and the West, and much more!

6. Short Stories of Rabindra Nath Tagore - Collected works of the short stories by the classic poet, novelist, musician and painter, Rabindra Nath Tagore

7. The Palace of Illusions - Mahabharata through Panchali's viewpoint by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni​

8.Tuesdays With Morrie - Remarkable narration of chronological visit of Albom to his college professor Morrie, by Mitch Albom

9. The Picture of Dorian Gray - Philophical Fiction by Oscar Widle

10. Lord of The Flies -Dystopian Novel by William Golding

I tried keeping this list short and hence picked the ones that are my favorites for any trip. 

Do let me know if you've already read some of these.
