This is just a discussion thread to give people new ideas about what to read. Please let me know what you are reading right now, or what is the last book you have read. I am currently reading Kushiel's Justice by Jacqueline Carey. I am an avid reader and will appreciate any responses so that maybe I will expand my "library" at home. Thanks!

as a book connoisseur and a person headed down the road to becoming a literature teacher...put the twilight saga down and back away as if it were a rabid dog. Her books are just...BAD (yes i have read them). every thing is too...perfect and rainbows and sunshine. Myself and other literature majors hate this series with a passion that's not been seen because its plot is weak, its execution is poor the characters are too perfect and it has no real conflict and has nothing significantly helpful to offer to the world. Its just kinda there, and may of us wish it wasn't. What we are trying to figure out is how this became a best seller. And no im not looking down you you at all...just the book and anything attached to its series.

I understand it totally... i just find the book rather entertaining. Im not surprised teenagers like it. its shallow! teenagers get that. for literary purpose, i wouldn't recommend it too. i would probably read financial planning books and articles myself... or watch documentaries. i liked it because it helps me sleep so i again, i just got hooked. like you said, the characters are just too perfect (actually too good to be true!). the movie sucks by the way but its nice to have a face for the more imagination purposes. thanks for the comment anyway.

I am reading "Mavericks at Work" why the most original minds in business win by William C.Taylor and Polly LaBarre. It is a nice book for anyone who wants to excel in his field no matter where and what he is doing now. It shows a different way of looking at work and business. And it also deals with how original ideas win and how one needs to be looking for new ideas everyday. Everyday we learn something new. We can never take our knowledge for granted as what we know today might not be working tomorrow. It is really a very great book! Regards

Well I am not sure what type of books you are into. Sounds like you may be open to anything. Right now I am reading I Love You, Ronnie about love letters Ronald Reagan wrote to his wife Nancy through the years with a few words from her in between. I just started and I had to laugh because Ronald Reagan seems to have the same chicken scratch way of writing as my husband does. I think reading about people can be fascinating. It's like a window into their world and everyone sees through different eyes. My husband once read a biography on General Swartzkopf that I had read a few pages of that seemed really interesting and I think I may read that one next. Good luck in your search! =)

Right now I am reading Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follet and then I plan on reading the sequel which is called A World Without End. The Pillars of the Earth is an amazing book, I've read it once before but I wanted to read it again because I read the sequel.

I just finished reading Finger Lickin Fifteen by Janet Evanovich. It is a series of books based on a female bounty hunter named Stephanie Plum. This is the 15th book in the normal series (obviously), and there have been a few other books in the series that were not part of the number series called between the numbers books. I love characters in the books. There is always a good mystery and some good laughs in these books.

I have just started reading the "Dark Tower" series by Stephen King. So far the first book is interesting, but I'm having trouble understanding the writing it's a little confusing. Hopefully it will get easier to understand the further I get into it.

Right now I'm reading The Chronicles of Narnia series...currently in the Voyage of the Dawn Treader. Been really enjoying them. My next set of books that i intend on reading is the Golden compass series. I also received a bunch of books from a friend that i will probably blow through. Then im going to start reading some of the classics such Shakespeare and Dickens. basically im going to pump my brain up with some of the most famous titles i can get my hands on. the rest of this year should be very interesting.

At the moment I am reading a book called "Soul stories" by Gary Zukav. He has written another book which is called "The seat of the soul", I had heard about that book and I wanted to read it, but I couldn't find it at the library, so I decĂ­ded to borrow the other one ("Soul stories") instead. The books contains many interesting and beautiful stories, and I like it very much. I have read the first half of the book and I look forward to reading the rest of it. I am also reading another book right now, it is a book called "About people" and it was written by an author called Finn Abrahamowitz. It is a general introduction to psychology.

I am reading the book, "Buddhism and the Sahibs" by Charles Allen. This is about archaeology and how the British got involved in unearthing the sources of Buddhism in India. The book obviously clebrates the British efforts of having brought back a lost religion back into the country.It also gives me an idea of how powerful a force Buddhism had been in Ancient India, before it was totally "flushed" out by Vedic Religion/Brahmanism. This book gives me the idea why the British were so much into Buddhism. Obviously, Buddhism had similar concepts like organizing of their concepts with a missionary zeal. I could go on blogging on this subject and would like to do so on my blog.

I used to read classic novels before , two or three in a year. But, I don't get the time any more for that, withmy full time job taking so much of my time. I could only realxe browsing through magazines, those that are related to my work, and those just for relaxation.
