Vaishali's Favorite Books

Books allow me to escape reality, this is the way I unwind and destress. I pick the books based on the little blurb it says about it, sometimes I will read reviews and I also value the recommendations and feedbacks from people I admire. I can eat, drink and fill my cup with books all day long. The cover of the book sometimes plays a role, but not really. I like mysteries and self help books the most, but also books about living in the early settlers days or simpler times.
