There are quite a number of them...but there is one,which is like The Bible of love for me...cant name it,cause its a long held secret,and would be unvieled to the one I would love that deep...the book talks of love like no other...and takes it to such ethereal heights,one would love to love,most lovingly....its all about how love is all about giving,sharing,living,loving,understanding and surrendering,unconditionally...and it is not whether one owns the loved one,but how even few days of togetherness would last a lifetime,if lived well....lived fulfillingly....most 'dil se'....someday...i shall share the work with all....as of now...its beauty lies in its mystery.:-)

I dont go for hard core reading ,also I would not prefer to gift any serious classics for a dear person. Humour is something I enjoy ,so a book from me will be to thoroughly enjoy. At present, it will be Chetan Bhagat's, ' Five Point Someone',

Mitali, I am so happy that you consider a book is the best gift to be given to one`s beloved. In this fast paced era of modern technology and maddening run after cheap, easy entertainment which is available 24 hours a day by touching a button of remote control, passion of reading is diminishing day by day. But whenever I see someone like you asks a question or two relating with books and after reading consequent answers, I start feeling there are still avid readers who never would stop their feet walking on the road to libraries.
Well, now about choice. I wish to gift my would~be beloved one of the greatest novels in English literature : THE GRAPES OF WRATH. The author John Steinbeck, the Nobel laureate and his novel won Pulitzer Prize too. Published in 1939, means almost 70 years have passed, yet the charm and importance of theme of this novel is unfading. At this very moment, we are facing great danger of dwindling economy accrued from Recession everywhere. The threat of unemploymen ...more
