Have you read any good books lately?
The Hound of the Baskerville
AW Towzer - the pursuit of God. Done very well mr Towzer.
As a matter of fact, yes! "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth..."
Gone Girl and Sharp Objects. Both are written by G. Flynn. Wild books! Disfunction to the max!
I also just finished Gone Girl and looking forward to reading the other ones. It was wild!
Movie coming out in March with a different ending.
Looking for Alaska, The Fault in Our Stars, Divergent, Insurgent, Allegiant, The Spectacular Now, The Book Thief. I had a lot of time to read because of winter break and snow days. These were all fantastic!
Ready, Player One
A Game of Thrones
Re: Games of Thrones. Love the TV series. Is the book better?
Speaker for the Dead (sequel to Ender's Game) Philosophy, Religion, Science Fiction in perfect harmony.
I am number four! So good
I stopped reading books when they came out with the TV...
Mark Twain biography vol 1
a few of Phillippa Gregory books
Prodigal Summer by Barbara Kingsolver
the Book Theif
a few history books. One on the Middle East that was boring, one that was written by Stephen Ambrose that was interesting.
Slaughterhouse Five and The Art of War.
The Ocean at the End of the Lane. Or really anything by Neil Gaiman
Common Sense by Thomas Paine
my favorite author
Thirteen reasons why and the one who flew over the cuckoos nest
Never Let Me Go.
WAY to many to count! I love to read
Harry Potter, 1-6 so far...
I've read a bunch lately but most recently was The Green Mile by Stephen King.
I LOVED that book
A Separate Peace. The end had me bawling.
The Invention of Wings, The Goldfinch, and Inferno.
Does it count as reading if the book is read to me via audible?
Portrait of an Addict as A Young Man, Crazy Rich & Below Stairs
Bodyguard of Lies
I am Malala- incredible story <3
"A Thousand Splendid Suns" and "Book Thief" and "The Once and Future King"
By Khaled Hosseini, Markus Zusak, and T.H. White respectively
I loved the Book Thief. What did think of the ending?
I just finished the book thief too. Such a beautiful book. My son is reading it now.
The 2 newest Baldacci books
A book from the 70's I found on a dusty shelf which entails a group of escaped convicts taking over a minuteman silo. It was entertaining enough, ending could have been better. It was a little Saprano's-esq
The Fault in Our Stars and East of Eden.
Love John Green. Have you read Looking for Alaska? I think I like it better than TFIOS.
And I love East of Eden too. Several of my students are reading it right now.
"The Atlantis Gene"
What did you think? I loved the fountainhead, but I haven't gotten to atlas shrugged yet.
in the process of reading it, bout half way done, great for demonstrating the wider application of fountainheads ideas
I had a hard time reading that. Part of it was because it was sooooo long, and I'd forget characters. But it was scary but interesting.
Keith Richards's autobiography. What a hoot.
The Wisdom of Psychopaths by Kevin Dutton.
Many! I am working my way through Asimov's Foundation Series now. Before that was Herbert's Dune Series. And of course some good theological and spiritual works thrown (I have to stay current on in my field).
'Night' by Eliezer Wiesel
Loved it, couldn't put it down.
I read that last year! It was short and sweet, but still awful about what they went through
Lone Survivor, American Assassin, and of course all of the 50 Shades of Grey ha
I'm reading The Help. It's a FANTASTIC read. The movie was one of my favorites and I worship all of the actresses in it, and I'd say that it comes closer to being as good as the book than any other film adaptation I've seen.
What faction are you?
I'm on book 12 of Wheel of Time.. I took a break and read a few other series.
Currently reading a painfully boring book on Excel. D:
I just finished reading Into the Wild for school and I thought it was really good
No. Not because I don't like to read. I just haven't read lately
About to jump into Divergent
Things that Matter
But Will it Liberate
The light of other days
The moral animal
Oryx and crake
John does at the end
This book is full of spiders
Stiff, the curious life of human cadavers
Plato and a platypus walk into a bar
The disappearing spoon
The vampire chronicles
The god delusion
Oh I loved Stiff! It was so interesting!
Out of this list, what was your favorite?
America a guide to democracy inaction, Shawshank, and The Lost World (Jurrassic Park 2).
I never read... and by never I mean I do like once a year. But yesterday I finished Letters From a Skeptic... it was amazing!
