I am reading an old book Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. I am also watching the dvds of the same TV serial. It looks like a movie only and is very interesting. Everyone acted very well in that serial. What is the book that you are reading at present? Can you share your views on that book please?

I am not reading any books these days. But I do read another book every day and my husband and I read it together. We spend at least 10 minutes every day in reading it cause its very helpful for us. The book is about God.

my wife and I do the same thing...we've been reading Night Light" by James and Shirley Dobson for about 5 months now. It 26 weeks worth of nightly readings...I think you'll like it. We've been married almost 24 years and it has led to some good discussions.

I have just started reading the Twilight saga through an Ebook that a friend sent me through mylot, I really enjoy it. Also I get to see how different the book itself in the plot it presents than the plot that the movies are showing.

Hi Buchi, I haven't read any classical story book for quite a long time. The last story book I had read was a couple of years back. It was Little Women by Louisa M Alcott. At the moment I have shifted my interest to books which relevant stock investment. The book I read currently is a chinese book about the tactics how to invest in the stock market. I need patience to read the book which contains content that I'm not familiar with. I sometimes feel drowsy for there are lots of terms and difficult words occurring in the same page. I understand that it's rather boring to acquire info and knowledge in stocks investment, field which I'm not familiar with. I try to read a few pages daily persistently and I believe I will finish reading it for sure Have a nice day

I am very poor in understanding the stock market variations. My husband tried to give some knowledge of the stock market but I could not follow it properly. Hence I have decided that it is not my cup of tea and left it. I am happy you are able to catch the knowledge at least to some extent. My best wishes to you.

Yeah, everyone has his or her liking in reading books. When I was in my teenage I spend most of my leisure time reading romantic and detective stories. I had shirted my interest to read chinese martial art fiction novels and science fictions to occupy my free time after I felt bored with both the former two. nowadays I spend more time watching tv programs than reading book. I had just finished watching the online movie, Karate Kid two days back. It's an interesting kongfu movie. quite similar to you, my husband doesn't have any interest reading books relevant stock investment. He prefers reading books about chinese brush painting as well as calligraphy. Let's enjoy pleasantly our cups of tea respectively. Cheers!

I have this Sri Shirdi Sai Baba - The Universal Master by Dr. S.P. Ruhela. I tend to turn its pages when and ever I feel like. It is too small to be called a book. But there are many interesting things in it. I dont read it from page one to the last. Instead, I read it at random, some pages, some extracts, as and when I am free. Interesting indeed. :)

On seeing your response, I made a search for the book. I did not get it. I will search again and see whether I will get it online. Otherwise I will try to buy it when I go to Baba temple. Thanks for the information. I read little bit of Sai Sat Charitha everyday before going to bed. Have you read it? It is wonderful.

I'm currently reading The Book Thief by Mark Zusak. It's a story being told by undertaker in the Nazi time. It was a story about a girl who stole books and reads them in secret. It's also a story of a family who hid a Jew. It's really a compelling story.

I am currently reading "Five quarters of the orange" by Joanne Harris. This author is the same one who wrote "Chocolate" which is also great.I like her style and I especially like this book as it keeps you until you read it all. It is based in present time but with flashbacks to the last World War and focused on events which happened at that time. Great reading!

Hi. I used to read a lot earlier. But nowadays I am so busy that I have time only for my kid's bedtime stories and nothing else. But seeing this discussion, I think I will read Pride and Prejuidice again. You actually reminded me of my school days when I came second in an oratorical competition and got this book as the prize. This happened almost 18 years back. It has happy memories for me. It is a great book. Happy reading.

Wow, I am reading the book named Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen too, I borrowed the hardcover from my colleague around one week.Now I read the processing at Chapter 9, Jane is ill at Mr.Bingley's place when she was invited by Ms.Bingley, and her younger sister ELIZABETH walked a long time to go to see her.I will read more chapter if only I have time. It's very meaningful to read this book.What is your sentiment after reading this book?

You will laugh if I say. I even get dream about pride and prejudice, that Darcy is proposing to me and Elizabeth staring at me since she refused to marry him just then. My daughter said I am thinking too much about the characters. I am reading and also watching the dvd. I read till they dance and exchange harsh words. TV serial DVD I am watching the last one out of six. Lydia marries Wikham and comes home to see parents.

I'm reading a movie tie-in of Taxi Driver. I spotted the book at a second hand book store and the price was roughly the same as my commute home (next to nothing in USD). I started reading it a few weeks ago, but stopped because I kinda forgot about it. I'm close to the end. I'm not one for movie tie-ins, but this one is very well written, almost like Catcher in the Rye.

Hi Buchi_bulla, Right now I am reading manuals for a business that my daughter is doing. I am also meaning to read pride and prejudice which I bought years ago for my daughter's book report. I haven't tried to read it until lately when I thought I had the time but as it is, I never got to open the book as yet. I still had a lot of things to take care of and I won't be able to read the book as much as so I decided to postpone it. I hope I get the time to read the novel soon. Have a nice day!

I love Pride and Prejudice! At the moment I am reading Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel which is about Thomas Cromwell and his part in facilitating the marriage of Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn. I'm very interested in the Tudor period of history so I'm finding it fascinating. Thomas Cromwell has always been a shadowy figure for me but this book has brought him to life.

I just finished The White Road by Lynn Flewelling. It's the third or fourth book of the series. It's fantasy, and has two gay characters in it. The book was good, but not great, I didn't care for the ending at all. I don't like her Tamir series, I only read one and a half of that one, I think there's three books in that one. Her writing style is good and very readable. I'd like to see this series made into a movie or maybe an animated film. I think it would also do well as a manga, or comic book. Now I have to find another fantasy to read. I don't know if she will write another book for this series. If she does, I hope it's better than this last one, lol.

I too like to read fantasies. They give a light reading. After a day's tiring work schedule, it is enjoyable to read fantasy books.

I am presently reading a book by Nora Roberts called Red Lily. This book is part of a trilogy called In the Garden and is about a family who owns a plant nursery (hence In the Garden) and whose house is haunted by a crazed ancestor. I have already read another book in this trilogy and it makes great light reading, something I need after a hard day's work!

Hi, I seldom read books or maybe I can say,I have not been reading a book for very very long time. I can't remember when is the last time I read a book. Most of the time, I will read magazines...especially parenting magazine. I can't read novel or fiction...easily dozed off before I finished reading 5 pages. Basically, I am not a bookworm and I prefer to read news online.

My elder sister also says the same thing. I have not seen her reading any novel or a big book. Even now she buys only magazines. As long as magazines give a good reading, that is ok.

I am currently reading "The Sacred Romance" by Brent Curtis and John Eldredge and I am also reading "The Automatic Millionaire" by David Bach. The Automatic Millionaire is a good financial guidance book...I was inspired to read it after hearing David Bach on a cd. The Sacred Romance is one that Christians will enjoy, but if you are not a Christian there would be no sense in reading it. The subtitle is 'drawing closer to the heart of God' I am a huge fan of John Eldredge, so this was a must read for me. I usually read a Christian book and something else helpful in another area of life at the same time. Next up..."Forgotten God" by Francis Chan and probably "Tuesdays With Morrie"...unless I find a good deal on a Law of Attraction type book.

It is nice to know that you read variety of subjects. I heard about Automatic Millionaire. I must read it. Your response gave a desire in me to read that book now.
