As salaamu alaii kumm wa rahmatullahi wa barakath,

“I ate them like salad, books were my sandwich for lunch, my tiffin and dinner and midnight munch. I tore out the pages, ate them with salt, doused them with relish, gnawed on the bindings, turned the chapters with my tongue! Books by the dozen, the score and the billion. I carried so many home I was hunchbacked for years. Philosophy, art history, politics, social science, the poem, the essay, the grandiose play, you name ’em, I ate ’em.
~ Famous American novelist, Ray Bradbury in Fahrenheit 451.

Certainly not as passionate but of late I happened to purchase and or collect some of the books mentioned below, no, this isn’t an ‘unboxing’ – that 21st century (Internet) ritual that follows everything new you purchase. I’ll insha-Allah be previewing, reviewing some of the books if they are worth it. 

This is as most of you would know a very famous award winning book, and its something I have had before but this particular version which I have purchased recently is a must have, I'll tell you why in the later posts.

Book # 3: Lost Islamic History. If you are on the Internet and you do not know about this book...then hey,  you haven't been on the Internet. This book is a Twitter sensation. Hold it! I'm not recommending this book yet. Prebooked this in May '14, received it after nearly eight emails to the publisher complaining about the delay.

Amongst all the above books, if I have to recommend just one, I’ll recommend two and those are ‘The Sealed Nectar’ and ‘Atlas of the Islamic Conquests’.
