Buy Books Online At Flipkart.com As Neil Gaiman said, “A book is a dream that you hold in your hand”. Imagine, if you could escape into your dreams, visit mythical places and travel back and forth in time. Experience the thrill of letting your imagination go wild. Books have that kind of power. They teleport you to places you might not otherwise get to see in your lifetime. Many people take up book reading in different ways. Come to think of it, you can classify book readers into a few categories: the hopelessly devoted reader, the all-the-timer/compulsive/voracious/anything-goes reader and the occasional reader. The first two groups are those who cannot live without books. Wherever they go, whatever they do, they need a book with them. They even read between work, or while they eat, just because they can't put the book down. You get the picture, right? And then, there is the last group of readers, who only pick up books when they have free time to spare. They are not as addicted to reading as the first two categories of readers. Comics: Whoever thinks that comics are only for kids, has never been more wrong. From Superman and Spiderman to Wonder Woman and Black Widow, comics bring to you a world of superheroes that can inspire you to become a better human being. You can add Marvel: Superhero Legends, The Avengers - Battle Against Loki and Marvel Adventures Spider-Man to this category. Also, let us not forget the wise world of Calvin and Hobbes comics or the adventurous tales in Tintin comics. Short Stories: If you do not have the patience to sit through long novels, and want your tales to be short and sweet, then short stories are for you. Books, such as The New Collected Short Stories by Jeffrey Archer, Interpreter of Maladies: Stories of Bengal, Boston and Beyond by Jhumpa Lahiri, Love Among the Bookshelves by Ruskin Bond and Trigger Warning: Short Fictions and Disturbances by Neil Gaiman, fall into the category of short stories. Novels: Whether you are a diehard fan of the Harry Potter series, or you love to delve into the thrilling world of The Millennium Trilogy, novels keep you on the edge of your seat with action-packed tales of adventures. They are often long, and are best for readers who devour books like popcorn. Since we are talking about novels, let us not forget the novellas. These books are shorter than novels but the tales are longer than short stories. Nonfiction Books: From how-to and technical books to text and reference books, you can find a host of nonfiction titles online. Apart from them, you can also find spiritual, motivational and religious books online. If you are taking a competitive exam, you can seek guidance from entrance exam preparatory books. Biographies and Autobiographies: These books tread a fine line between fiction and nonfiction. They are usually filled with factual events from a person’s life, but can also feature hearsay on certain occasions. Books like Wings of Fire: An Autobiography by Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam, My Story by Kamala Das, My Experiments With Truth by Mahatma Gandhi are some of the well-known autobiographies. Captain Cool: The M. S. Dhoni Story by Gulu Ezekiel and Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson are a few popular biographies that you can consider reading. Buy Books Online If you are someone who loves reading, then online shopping can be a boon for you. With so many titles available from various publishing houses, these sites offer great discounts coupons online on your favourite books. So if you were planning to build a library of your own, this is the right time to do so.

UPSC advances date for 2017 Civil Services Preliminary Examination 

The Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) has decided to the prestigious  civil services preliminary examination, to select IAS and IPS officers among others, will be held in June instead of August next year and onward. For last three year the UPSC is conducting this examination in the month of August and now it is after the gap of three years that Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) will be conducting the examination in June, rather than August. 

The UPSC used to publish the advertisement for Civil Service Examination in the month of January every year and the preliminary examination used to be held in the month of May / June every year, because now UPSC is getting application submitted online, it is publishing the advertisement in the month of May and conducting the preliminary examination in the month of August every year for last three years.  May be some body in the UPSC awaken and it seems that now the civil services preliminary examination, 2017, is scheduled to be held on June 18, as per the Commissions' calendar for the examination.

The preliminary tests for 2016, 2015 and 2014 were held during the month of August and the  preliminary exam for 2013 was held on May 26 that year.

The civil services examination is conducted annually by the UPSC in three stages - preliminary, main and interview - to select officers for Indian Administrative Service (IAS), Indian Foreign Service (IFS) and Indian Police Service (IPS), among others. Thousands of candidates take the test every year at various centres across the country. 

It is not clear what benefit will candidates get by this decision of advancement of Civil Service Prelim Examination. UPSC need to shorten the time period of this annual examination, it take nearly one and half year to complete one cycle of the examination.
