Content creators take to Instagram to showcase their talents and interests. There are different kinds of creators with various niches who put out extremely entertaining content. These influencers often talk about their day-to-day life and also recommend ideas that could be enjoyed by their fans. Some of them are complete bookworms and can’t get enough of reading. For most of them, books transport them to another world and as an escape from the chaos of our world. With each read, they learn and they grow. Books give them new perspectives and widen their spectrum of knowledge. Here are a few content creators who are avid readers!

Prajakta Koli a.k.a Mostly Sane is one of the most popular and loved creators in India today. She is known for her candid and super entertaining content. However, there is one thing about her that every true fan of her knows—she loves reading. Reading is an integral part of her daily life, and hence a major part of who she is. In fact, 3 years ago, Prajakta made a video called, Books you should read if you hate reading’, where she recommends 6 books that she absolutely loves. After getting a great response, she put up another video on YouTube, recommending 8 books that are a must-read. One of the major reasons why she is so dearly loved by millions is the fact that she doesn’t shy away from being who she is and that she has her own voice. It is so nice of her to take all of us on her journey filled with fantastic books.

2. Malini Agarwal

Born in Allahabad, Malini Agarwal a.k.a MissMalini is an entrepreneur who came to Mumbai with the dream to live an extraordinary life.

Guru Purnima 🙏 – The Autobiography of a Yogi. One of the most influential books in the history of mankind. A few people that it's inspired – Virat Kohli, Steve Jobs, Jacqueline Fernandez, Sushant Singh Rajput and many more. This one book has taught me more in 2 years than school/college did in 18 years. It had such a profound impact on me that I even enrolled in the official Yoga school spoken about in the book. It's an extremely heavy book to read, but if you get through it, and ABSORB EVERYTHING… You'll come out a different person. These are some of the key lessons from Autobiography of a Yogi :- 1. It is never about the NUMBER of books you read. It is always about how much information you have retained from a single book. Choose fewer books, but retain it all! 2. As Virat Kohli said in his caption related to this book – "A must read for all those who are brave enough to let their thoughts and ideologies be challenged. The understanding and implementation of the knowledge in this book will change your whole perspective and life. Believe in the divine and keep marching on doing good deeds." . 3. If as a kid, you've ever looked around you and asked yourself : 'Who am I?' 'What is this human body?' 'Why am I here?' …then this book will serve you those answers in DETAIL. It will tell you what your purpose is on this planet. 4. There is a VAST OCEAN of knowledge that the world of YOGA holds. And that knowledge is kept secret. It is not spoken about on public platforms like Instagram. If you wish to gain ancient, scientific yogic knowledge, you need to hustle your way through this HEAVY book. 5. Detailed knowledge about life after death, the meaning of God, the meaning of being a human being, the impact that breathing patterns can have on your perception of reality, the decoding of many religious texts… And SO MUCH MORE! 6. An answer to ANY question you could possibly have. Believe it or not, some books have magic in them. That is the reason Autobiography has inspired SO many leaders over the decades since it's been written. You will only understand the impact of this text once you read it. This book has been my greatest Guru 🙏
