Let's see if you can tell the names of these immensely famous novels by their equally famous first lines...

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife. 


2.  Mr and Mrs Dursley, of number four Privet Drive, were proud to say that they were perfectly normal, thank you very much

3.   If you really want to hear about it, the first thing you'll probably want to know is where I was born and what my lousy childhood was like.

READING - A reason or two

"I love my books ,as drinkers love there wine,
The more they drink, the more it feels divine"

Reading is bliss.
This in itself is a sufficient reason to read.
 In this stressful, competitive and artificial life, bliss, serenity and calm are  priceless feelings  which we all long to experience. And books are the best and most effective and economic medium to not only attain these elusive fairies but,to have them for keeps. 
These fairies once acquiesced, are like elixir for our ailing life bestowing love,joy and wisdom ... forever.
Books provide relief as these are based on eternal situations of life. Life is based on bhav jagat or the emotions and books help us to unwind ourselves by showing real situations and myriad reactions of the characters ..working  as catharsis, providing mental peace and emotional strength.


Books are timeless as they portray the eternal values of a human life.All life originates from an egg and the spark that makes life worth living comes from emotions ...…
