Harry Potter by JK Rowling

There’s thankfully more than one Harry Potter book for you to sink your teeth into. Whichever one you choose to read, you will be transported into a magical fantasy world of witches and wizards in no time whatsoever. Much like smoking shisha, the novels allow readers to shut themselves off from the stresses of real world if only for a few hours. Once you’re finished with one book, you can crack open another along with a new flavour of hookah.

1984 by George Orwell

George Orwell’s 1984 is a real thinker. In fact, you could spend hours upon hours pondering its themes and meanings. Luckily, hookah provides the perfect environment for you to do this in. When you’re smoking hookah, you’re free to enjoy your own thoughts in a peaceful atmosphere – and because of this it makes for an ideal opportunity to read some Orwell.

On the Road by Jack Kerouac

‘Beat Generation’ icon Jack Kerouac knew how to relax and chill out. Therefore, you will really feel like you’re following in his footsteps if you read his book On the Road while smoking hookah. Your smoky surroundings will only heighten your enjoyment of the text, which details Jack’s counter-culture adventures while journeying across the United States of America.


Don’t forget, there’s a whole world of books to read with hookah. You should find that any one makes the time fly by while leaving you feeling laidback and chilled in your own company.
