We'd asked you, dear readers, to take a selfie and tell us which your favourite books are.
Dr Divya Pal Singh, 62 from Mathura, Uttar Pradesh writes about the book he's read a dozen times.

Catch 22 by Joseph Heller is my favourite book.

I have read it about ten to twelve times.

To begin with, it is hilarious -- Heller's dark humour is a rip-roaring ride.

Further, it is a biting satire on war and doctors.

It is a wicked Kafkaesque parody about the armed forces the world over.
