    Thanks for sharing these book with us.

  2. Hello Swadhin,
    Thanks for sharing these valuable resource for bloggers.
    Now-a-days, most of the newbie bloggers make mistakes that they don’t gather knowledge about blogging and they fail. You mention here some great books that will really help them. I’ll surely try to read some books from your list. :)

  3. Good resources for the bloggers Swadhin, thanks for recommending these books for us.

    I always love to read a lot of book specifically the books related to writing so as to enhance my scripting skill. Bloggers should have good writing talent to narrate the blog posts with personal touch and to stand out from the crowd.

    I’d like to read Book 1, will try to get it :)

  4. Hi Swadhin

    Wonderful resource and opens new doors of creativity for those who just try DIY type of creativity though nothing creative can be done without any direct or indirect inspiration.

    I like #4 that directly contributes a lot in effective blogging and especially helps a lot in creating magnetic headlines.

    In our blogging activities we many time forget the reality that howsoever number of articles we read daily on interenet but they can never be even a modicum of alternative of book reading. We should try to read an ebook or printed book at least half an hour daily to keep learning more and more in detail.

    Thanks a lot for sharing this wonderful list.

  5. Hii Swadhin,

    Bro, this is really a well listed article related to inspirational books. I love to read this kind of book who inspire me and motivate e to achieve my goal by fulfilling all the required responsibilities. I got three new books name and information related to that books from here.

    Thanks Bro. Keep writing :)

  6. Hi Swadhin,

    A wonderful post! I love it! :-)

    Thanks for this list, adding them to my reading list! Hopefully, I will be able to read them soon.

    I only recognize one book here (On writing) that’s on my reading list for a while.

    And I agree with you that a writer/blogger must read! Reading fiction or nonfiction provide one with some points to ponder over.

    I’d like to read all 5 of them but number 5 seems enticing with its title and a promise to provide practical tips on making it as a writer. As I’m no fan of ‘starving writer’ image.

    Thanks for sharing!

  7. Hi Swadhin, thanks for sharing the name of the books. I will start to read these books one by one. Thanks once again and keep blogging :)

    • Hi Moumita, Good to see you here again. Glad you liked the list and great time with blogging these days.

  8. Good information who want to make writing a career.
