What are you reading these days? August 09, 2007 6:53 AM
Hi! What are you guys reading these days? Mine is "Diana In Search of Herself" by Sally Bedel. Has any of you or someone you knew read it already? It was a very interesting book and so informative about Princess Diana. I'm halfway of the whole book now. I am enjoying it. If any of you would like to know or ask something about it, you're welcome to do so. Hope to hear about your readings too. Have a nice day and keep smiling everyone!

At this time I am reading "WRITING SPIRIT Finding Your Creative Soul" by Lynn V Andrews. I am also reading "Unspeakable" by Sandra Brown. I just finished the new Harry Potter book about 2 days ago.

I loved the last Harry Potter book. I cried. Then when I finished it I reread it again. I love reading. I read two books at once. I'm reading The Dress Lodger and Feelings Buried Alive Never Die.

I am currently reading A Home at the End ofThe World
by Michael Cunningham
I am about 1/4 of the way through and I just started today. It is the story of two boyhood friends: Jonathan and Bobby. Starting with their meeting in Jr High. After college, Bobby moves in with Jonathan and his roommate, Claire. Bobby and Claire fall in love, scuttling the plans of Jonathan, who is gay, to father Claire's child. When Claire and Bobby have a baby, the three move to a small house in upstate New York to raise "their" child together and create a new kind of family. This book depicts the charged, fragile relationships of urban life today.
It is also on the 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die list.
I won a copy of "The Eternal Prison" by Jeff Somers (which he was kind enough to sign for me), from Goodreads.com. Even though it's book #3 of a series I'm really enjoying it and I'll be reading the rest of the series.
I just started Excession by Iain M. Banks. He is a brilliant writer his stories/characters are about as intelligent and complex as one can hope for. Banks has quickly become my favorite writer of all time.
My girlfriend (Deb) got a book from the library called "Food Rules" by Michael Pollan. Since I wasn't reading anything and it was a short read I decided to give it a read, took less than 2 hours. It was very informative and full of common sense. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to eat healthier and live longer.
The Moral Landscape by Sam Harris, was a fascinating read even though it kind of a tough read in the beginning (a lot of big words and no pictures). It about how science can determine human values, so if you ever wondered about how the brain works or the difference between the brain and the mind this is a must read. The only caution I give is that Sam Harris pulls no punches when it comes to Religious Morals.
Just finished "The Shadowed Mind" by Julie Cave. It's a Pro-Christian Mystery. As mysteries go this one is horrible I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. Hoping the next book I pick up will be worth my time....
I'm one of those persons who can't read one book at a time. At the moment i'm reading about 6 or seven at the sme timeXD Anyways, i'm almost finished with "Sophie's World". It's about the history of philosophie. I'd give it 5/5. Otherwise, i'm always reading some Stephen King and E.A.Poe.
I usually only read one book at a time but right now I'm working on 3. 300 Nights by Kriss Perras Running Water, which was a giveaway at http://www.goodreads.com (my 5th free book), Smarter by Sunday (from the New York Times) it's 52 weekends of knowledge (10 pages a weekend on various topics) quite interesting and I'm working on The Complete Works of Shakespeare which I started 2 years ago and have only read 6 plays, but my New Years resolution for 2011 is to make a dent in ti.
