My favourite book in 2018 is the interesting autobiography called  'Sugar grandpa's and his northern mistress' by Dr. Fake.

One of the highlights in 2017 was "A Suitable Boy" by Vikram Seth. However, it was published maybe twenty years earlier. I doubt there are many forumites who would read through more than 1300 pages. I found it worthwhile, though; this is a novel about marriage and love in India involving different generations and different castes and cultures.

For some people, the more books they read, the more immoral or shameless they could become.  The things they lack of in their life is not reading but education of how to follow generally accepted codes of conduct as other people do in the society.
