I have just finished reading Terry Pratchett's *Soul Music* and can honestly say I haven't laughed so much in ages. I love the way Terry Pratchett writes and in *Soul Music* he really rips the music industry to pieces in his own comic style. If you want a good giggle, then give any of Terry Pratchett's books a try.

LOL. Yeah, could be a best seller too! I am working on my own book from time to time, just seeing how it goes, so no details yet! lol. The last book I read was by Terry Brooks, and was 3 in 1. It was part of his Sword of Shannarah series. Now, that was over 2 years ago! lol. Not been able to finish one since!

Few back I was reading 'How to say No'. It was a very interesting book. But someone could not complete it. I also do not remember the name of the writer right now. One more book, if you can get hold of 'Magic of thinking big'. It is really a wonderful and very useful book and I have read it more than twice. Whenever, I am down and out I start reading this book. The name of writer, I will let you know, cannot recall right now.

Dearest sis, Even I missed you a lot, couldn't come here often and i am sorry for not mailing you. Yes, I have started another book, "The seven habits of effective people" by Stephen Covey. It shows how life should be and what life is. We should have our priorities right and pursue our dreams no matter what. We should not be governed by others' thoughts. Like, when someone says, "you look crazy, you look fat!', we should not be upset. It's their problem not ours! We should live life and not prepare to live all the time. The book is wonderful, have just begun though. I recommend it highly. Just take out time and to start with read mags like 'Reader's digest". I think RD is very good. I have been reasing it since my childhood. You take care. smiles always..

At the present moment I am reading a thick Chinese book with 1482 pages. This book concerning very many good teaching and advices related to daily lives written by famous ancient author. This book is divided into three main sections and each of them consists of forty of different interesting and attractive stories. As most of the time I am busy with other things so I could hardly find any spare time to do my reading often. By far I had managed to finish chapter eight of section one only. I still have some 1400 pages to go.

Recently read The seven spiritual laws of success, from Deepak Chopra, it's enlightening, exposes wisdom from ancient India in a contemporary approach. It is very similar to a previous reading: The science of getting rich, from Wallace Wattles; this one I can share with you, whithout copyright offense. Get it at: http://offto.net/wishihadereaditbefore/ A practical guide to ground your wishes, and wish bigger. Now I'm slowly reading A Briefer history of time, from Stephen Hawking, the advances of science and its starrings, from Copernico to our days.

Thanks maribea, for all your recommendations. I have read quite a few victorian novels and liked them immensely but haven't read Possession as yet. Would like to read it soon. Thanks for mentioning The God Delusion - it's my favorite read always. Have a great day.

I am reading Business English and I find it very interesting to read and study it. There are so many business terms in the line of business and I am happy to have got to know so many business English terms and words, which, I think, is very helpful to me, as it has a lot to with my teaching job.

Well, Currently I'm reading "The Scarlet Letter" by Nathaniel Hawthorne. And I think it is the toughest book I have ever come across. Usually I need 3 or 4 days to finish the book but this book I have been reading from past 1 month and it is just too difficult. The words are just too difficult. I have to consult dictionary everytime a turn a page and it is just too boring. I don't know when I'm going to finish this book.

I have heard about the book. diillu, i feel, the whole charm of reading vaporises if I am to flip over the dictionary for each and every word I do not know. When I am reading fiction I hardly do that, not unless the word really has to do with the interpretation. Having said this, for reading which is non-fiction, I do look up. Thanks.
