Reading List Part 1

As a part of my New Year resolution of reading at least 200 non fictions within this year end, I have created a reading list for myself partly inspired from Centre Right India’sA Short Reading List for the Aam Aadmi ” and partly consisting of certain books I have always wanted to read.
