A book is a good friend: Nikitin Dheer

Fave list
My favourite book is The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. I like the book because it teaches man, of all ages, to not lose faith, keep dreaming and keep believing.

Preferred authors
Well, I have quite a few favourite authors, but one name I would like to mention is Khaled Hosseini. His narrative is precise and vivid and his words are hard-hitting.

Chosen genre
I love reading biographies. Some of the ones I liked are Long Walk to Freedom by Nelson Mandela, the autobiographies of Malcom X and Nikola Tesla and A Moveable Feast by Ernest Hemmingway.

I always carry a book to work and I also read while I travel, as I travel alone a lot – a book is a good friend.

Monthly quota
I read a lot less these days compared to earlier. I also have become a little slower in terms of finishing a book. It takes me a month for a book these days; earlier I would finish one book in a week.

Right choice
I get book recommendations from friends and also online articles.

Format option
I prefer physical books compared to e-books…I like the feel and smell of the book immensely.

Currently reading
I am reading poetry by Rumi.
