It’s not just because of the limited time we all have: We love short books for their burst of energy and epiphany. Short books whisk us off to another world and then (usually) deposit us right back where we used to be.
Also if you are a newbie at reading, quick reads are the best to start with.
So here are some quick reads, that you can enjoy on a Sunday afternoon or when you stay up all night.

NAME: Train to Pakistan
AUTHOR: Khushwant Singh
GENRE: Historical, cultural, fiction
One of the classics by the great Khushwant Singh
A story from the times during the partition of India- Pakistan.
Story of a small village Mano Majra, where Sikhs and Muslims have lived together in peace for hundreds of years. Then one day, at the end of the summer, the “ghost train” arrives, a silent, incredible funeral train loaded with the bodies of thousands of refugees, bringing the village its first taste of the horrors of the civil war. Train to Pakistan is the story of this isolated village that is plunged into the abyss of religious hate. It is also the story of a Sikh boy and a Muslim girl whose love endured and transcends the ravages of war.
Regarded as one of the most heart-rending testimonials of the partition of 1947, the Train to Pakistan is an ideal novel for those who wish to learn more about India’s past and is looking for more than the socio-political scenario behind the partition.
A really quick read, but the story will remain in your heart forever.!!
