Frankly said i dont read toomuch - probbaly a few books per year. But when i have time i use it for reading and do it with pleasure. The last two books I have read are State of fear by Michael Crichton and Siddharta by Hermann Hesse. What about you?

The last book I read was Fight Club by Chuck Palahaniuk . I thought the story was really interesting and I loved the twist at the end . If you haven't read Fight Club I would highly recommend it because it's really good . Right now I'm working on rereading The Basketball Diaries and reading Forced Entries , Living at the Movies , and Void of Course all by Jim Carroll sense I just got the news that he passed away September of last year which I think is very unfortunate.

I just finished a book by a Danish author called Hanne Elmer. It was a collection of short stories about elderly people and people who are disabled. The stories are very well-written and the author uses a lot of humour. I enjoyed the stories very much, because I used to work as a nurse and I recognize many of the situations. There is a story about a woman who suffers from dementia, in a way it is sad story, but the author uses a lot of humour and that makes the story less sad. My own grandmother also suffers from dementia, and it made me a little sad to read the story, but I still think that it was a very good story.

I read all the time. I just finished "Along Came A Spider", and started reading "Catcher In The Rye" I have a pile of books that I need to work my way through and I am ppicking them off one by one. It takes me a little while to finish all of them, there are at least 10 books that I need to read.

The last book I read fully was Blood Engines by T.A. Pratt. It was a really good book and I plan on getting the others related to this book. I read through my stanza app on my ipod touch. I got some other free books that I downloaded through stanza too on my reading list. I have a classic short story collection app on my ipod touch. It has over 2000 stories by different authors such as Louisa May Alcott, Hans Christian Andersen, H.P. Lovecraft to name a few. I read it on the bus when I am commuting to and from work and before I go to bed. Great stories.

Wow, for a long time I read Michael Crichton, I have just noticed that I found another guy who read it. I am really happy to know that you read State of Fear. If you mean the last book, I actually am reading 'The Undercover Economist' by Tim Harford, 'Ben Bernanke' by J. van Overfeldt and 'Overcoming Math Anxiety' (I forget by whom, please forgive me). Those books aren't finished yet. But if you included e-book to the list, I would like to add 'Prey' and 'State of Fear' both are by Michael Crichton.

The last book I read was 'What women want men to know?'. It is an interesting book on relationship from Barbara DeAngils. She is a researcher in relationship. This is an interesting book. I got it as the first anniversary gift to my husband. Hope he will find it interesting and take something to his life style from the book.
