What book are you reading at the moment?
I'm reading a book about plants, insects and animals.
On my computer, I read news about computer security and spyware.
Why men don't listen & Women can't read maps
Allan & Barbara Pease
I'm reading "The Death of a Sales Man" by Arthur Miller.
at work -> "Sybex guide to Network+ Certification"
at home -> "And then there were none.." by agatha christy. I know its a youth book, but I read it when I was in school and thought it was pretty good so i dug it out to read it again.
I am reading a science fiction hard cover with stories from twenty six writers.
Thats what I call a twist.
How about the book Holes? a film was later released.
My fiance' just finished reading "holes" and said it was a really good book actually. I havent read it or seen the movie but it sounded good from her description.
I first read it when I was 12 years old. I'm going to stop reading material intended for older people before my time
Is that from choice, or because you have to read it for school? I read it at some point, thought it was crap. In fact it's possible to argue that theatre in general is a crap art form; apart from Shakespeare and Chekhov, who is there who's any good? Tennessee Williams? His short stories are better. Samuel Beckett? No thanks. Etc etc. And all the modern classics you're supposed to have read - Miller, Look Back in Anger, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf - they're just embarrassingly bad.
I'm not reading anything at the moment.
Death of a sales man is one of the books I have to read for school.
She had to read "holes" for school. She is an English major in her senior year so she is reading all sorts of weird books. Unfortunately, most of what I read is technical documentation and study guides...and of course the Forum. Don't have time for much else.
I too prefer books containing facts over fiction.
My sympathies. Maybe you could shock, amaze, astound and astonish your teacher by writing an essay on how bad it is. Be a teenage iconoclast!
Maybe I will, maybe I will *said as evily as possible*
The book that I am reading at the moment is [THE OUT- OF- SYNC CHILD]which is [recognizing and coping with sensory integration dysfunction].
This is just one of the problems my son blair suffers from and I just want to know about everything that can be done for him.
I had to order the book from america as I could not get this book in Great Britain.
I could go into a lot of detail about this, but It would take to long.
Interesting, can you PM me the author and ISBN number?
I've also read 'Of Mice and Men', some gothic horror including 'The Red Room' and 'The Fall of the House of Usher'.
Good choices! I like the Steinbeck, and Poe is brilliant. 'The Red Room' is by H.G. Wells? Don't think I've read that one.
Project Gutenberg is a good place to DL literature.
I just finished Terry Pratchett's latest, Going Postal and am attempting to slog through Jonathon Strange and Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke.
Just read the full works of Shakespeare....and I mean actually read and understand it....you will find that everything else that was written after that is a nothing more than a copy of his writings placed in different times and circumstances.........there is nothing new in writing thereafter.....take any situation, any premis, any new concept, check back with good ol' William and you will find the old lad wrote it first....His poetry is timeless....his prose....well....just read him.........
any books by
are great reads!!!!!
at this time I'm seriously behind on my reading--just now reading Bill clintons book which is very interesting.I perfer non fiction to fiction now,but I love to read anything and everything-always have since I learned to read.
