I was wondering what book(s) everyone is currently reading. If any lol... Give a small description and genre of the book I'm reading a New Earth for english its sort of a self-help book to do with your ego and how it causes you problems. I'm also reading Our Inner Conflicts by Karen Horney (pronounced horneye get your head out of the gutter) Its about psychoanalytical perspective of how neurosis stems from our conflict within our self and repressing our anxiety.

I'm currently reading a book named Nietzsche which is the biography of the German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche. It's very interesting to understand more about the character and his writings to read his biography. I would read more writers biography in future.

I just this morning finished Nicholas Sparks and Micah Sparks Memoir "Three weeks with my brother". It's about the author Nicholas Sparks and his brother Micah giong on a trip around the world in 3 weeks and about their childhood. Which is very interesting and will hit home to anyone who grew up in poverty conditions, close knit families, and anyone who has lost a loved one. This Memoir is inspiring and I plan on purchasing a copy for each of my brothers and giving it to them for their birthdays. I am also reading "A Bend in the Road" which I put on hold to finish the memoir. It is by Sparks and it is a fiction novel that was inspired by his sister and brother in law. So I know it will be a wonderful read. And then I am also beginning "My sister's keeper" by Picout. It's about a teen who basically was created as a spare parts for her older sister who is living with a rare type of leukemia. And I am only in the beginning but she has hired a lawyer to sue for the rights to her own body. These are all good reads.

I'm currently reading "I Power, THe Secrets of Great Business in Bad Times" The "I" stands for Ideas, Ingenuity, Invention, Incentive,Individual, Invigorate, Inquisitive, Innovation, Inspiration, Intelligence, Imagination and Improvement. It's pretty good.

I just finished reading "Ten thousand sorrows" by Elizabeth Kim. In this book Elizabeth tells the story of her life, and she tells about the things she has been through. It is a sad story and it touched me deeply especially the first part where she watched the things that happened when her mother was killed. I have read many, many books but "Ten thousand sorrows" is one of the books that I will always remember. Now I am reading "Blood brothers" by Ingvar Ambjørnsen. I have read two other books by the same author and I like them very much. The books are about a man (Elling) and his experiences, and they are very well written and funny.

I'm currently reading "The FDA Follies" for a research project I am doing for my english class. It really is fascinationg how messed up our FDA was in the 80s and 90s. I am also reading a book for pleasure by Chuck Palahnuik, called "Survivor." It is mordibly funny, if you have ever read this author, you know he has a pretty sick mind. But his books are great nonetheless and he has become one of my favorite authors. He also wrote the book that the movie "Fight Club" was based off.

I'm currently reading - and close to finishing - BASIC ECONOMICS by Thomas Sowell. It's a fascinating book that explains the basic principles of the economy and also compares a free market economy with a socialist economy and explains why a free market economy is the best way to go. It's a book I recommend to everyone - including the politicians.
