Bloggers world: Guest Feature, the books I’ve recommended in this post

I’m pleased to recommend the following books.


The Miracle Of Mindfulness by Thich Nhat  Hahn translated by Moby Ho:  this book is all about practical exercise of learning the skills of mindfulness. The author emphasizes the fact that one must do things one at a time, whether it’s washing dishes, or eating an orange, the primary focus should be on that particular activity.I found it interesting and felt I always think of many things while I’m doing something, which results in getting the work done improperly. I recommend this book to all our readers.


The second book is Louisa May Alcott’s, “The Little Women.”  : It is a story of poverty, the characters were having a tough time dealing with it, when their school friends could afford whatever they wanted because they were wealthy, whereas the the little women could not. It teaches the main characters the most important thing in life is love and happiness, wealthy people are not always happy.


The third book I’d like to recommend is   The Da Vinci Code

The Da Vinci Code : I loved it, I would recommend it to any one who likes mysteries or even if they don’t, it captures the reader’s attention instantly. There are many twists and turns, just when you think  what’ll happen you find out how wrong you are. There is a  lot of suspense and drama.

Book # 4 is : To Kill A Mockingbird: This book is a first person narrative by the character, Scout Finch.It’s a novel of personal growth, social justice and injustice, and friendship. There is a lot of humour and heartbreak too. The story takes place in the 1930s a time when there was problems of prejudice and bias in America’s South.

Despite all this it is a very interesting book, where one learns to accept human beings regardless of their cultural difference. It is a book by Harper Lee and it is an American classic. It is a book I enjoyed reading and would recommend it to all those who love reading.

I liked the  other books I read also, but for now these are the ones, I decided to recommend.

To Kill A Mockingbird

Author: Harper Lee

Type of work: Novel

Published: 1960

Publishers: J.B.Lippincott

Pages: 376

The story revolved around the finch family, where they lived, their neighbours and some individuals who lived in the small town.

Main characters were: Scout Finch- the daughter

Attacus Finch- the lawyer and father of Scout, and Jem

Jem Finch : the son

Tom Robinson

Bob Ewell

Boo Radley

Scout Finch is the narrator, her father Mr. Attacus Finch is a lawyer, her brother Jem Finch is older than Scout. Tom Robinson is a poor black guy who worked for some of the main characters. Bob Ewell was a racist, who hated the blacks in the community. Boo Radley  was happy to be at home, he did not have any contact with the members of the community.

The story takes place in Maycomb county, an imaginary district in southern Alabama. The time was 1930s the great years of depression, it was the time when poverty and unemployment was widespread in the United States.

The author felt it is a sin to kill a mockingbird since it’s not harmful. She cleverly implies that the townspeople are responsible for the death of one of the characters in the story.

I enjoyed reading  this book, it brought back memories of the kids I taught in school. They had that typical behaviour which I consider  innocent. It also portrays the fact that children are never afraid to tell the truth.

Although the title of this book did not attract my attention, I was delighted I had finally considered reading it. It is full of humour and wit.

My favourite characters in this book were Scout, the narrator and Attacus the lawyer and father of the two kids.

There were a few sad moments but that is to be expected, no one rich, poor or middle of the pack goes through life without having to deal with sadness.

I will not hesitate to recommend this book to any one. Anyone with some sense of humour would like this book.
