There are so many good books out there and then there are great books out there. What books can you think of were so outstanding you didn't want to put them down?

The last book I picked up and read, almost cover to cover, was Jenny McCarthy's "Life Laughs" - a memoir of sorts. It was really funny, engaging, and just had a bunch of short stories (type things..) that kept me hooked. That's the latest one I read. Surprisingly, she's a good writer..Although a little obscene at times. LOL.

I haven't read that one, but I read her book, Belly Laughs, when I was pregnant and she really is a good writer. She keeps things real and tells it like it is. I like that. Thanks for the recommendation.

The last book that I couldn't put down was "The cry of the cat" by Richard Kalich. That book is hard to describe, it is repulsive and me made me angry, but at the same time I couldn't put it down, I just had to read the next chapter...and the next and the next. I have read quite a lot of books that I don't remember in detail, but I will always remember "The cry of the cat" It is repulsive, but it is also a very good book. I admire the author, and I wish a could write a book like that.

Hi jessica67, the last book I read is 'breaking dawn' from twilight saga. I am curious how bella turn from the human into vampire. And what most make love to this book is the edward's character. He is loving, caring, ready to sacrifice for his love, not an ego man. what an ideal lover...:))

Hi. The last book I've read continuously from cover to cover without any interruptions is "The One Minute Entrepreneur" by Ken Blanchard. I read the book fully (and for free) in one of our local bookstores here which allows private reading. I stayed in the bookstore for more than three hours. The book has given many practical advice about life and businesses. It was so comprehensive that it covered a man's life from being a student until retirement. I'm planning to eventually buy this book for collection purposes.

The last book I read and cann't put down is "the Greatest Salesman in the world " which writen by Og Mandino. When the first time I read it I won't put it down until it become the last one I read. I sincerely hope that everybody can have a look at it . You will learn a lot of things from that book.

I don't know. I have been reading Carol S. Pearsons Awakening The Heros Within book, and it is pretty good. It covers a couple of archetypes and is very interesting. I have discovered that I am the innocent archetype, which is one of the first of the many stages in her book. I don't know if I can believe everything, as it is hard to digest. But it is interesting for various pointers.
