    Johnathon Livingston Seagull

    I DARE You...........a series

    Of Mice and Men

    The Grapes of Wrath

    For Whom the Bell Tolls

    Rumblefish............a personal favoritie ( S E HInton gives voice to the young)

    The Holy Bible----------by far the most influential and most studied and read, and most often re-visited.

    And then, there, was the accounting,  of life, observation, change.....given by the pen of my own Grandfathers hand...............it is the one, that I define my own measure.

    Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. It is a book of love and romance. It suggests specially girls how to choose their lovers or husbands.

    I found The Holy Quran to be the best book. It is so beautiful that after reading and understanding it, one feels the peaceful feeling and calm environment all around us. Regarding the knowledge point of view, it has all the medical, geological and law aspects as well.

    Pema Chodron, “When Things Fall Apart”, has always provided me guidance in accepting the unacceptable and growing from it.

    Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance. You will look at your life and the way of living in a new perspective. That and The Celestine Prophecy. Enjoy!

    The Holy Bible.  No other book has had such a profound and changing effect on how I live my life.
