I myself am reading more than one book lol. I know I hsouldj sut stick to one book but hey like my thinking and writing I jump around a lot.
I am currently reading four books and one magazine. The magazine is Alfred Hitchcock Mystery magazine September 2009
the books are The latest Harry Potter though I'm not really into that one at the moment. Kingdom Keepers II Disney At Dawn by Ridley Pearson Forensics A guide For Writers by D.P. Lyle, M.D. (part of the howdunit series and yes for some reason it's spelled that way lol) and the one I am really into and enjoying Catch as Cat Can by Rita Mae Brown and Sneaky Pie Brown. (this one is posted in one of my hubs but no not trying to have ppl read my hub just saying in case those who had read it notcied that) And the unique thing about this authro is she writes great mystery where cats and a dog help solve the mysterys with their human companion. And not only that but Sneaky Pie Brown is her cat that she writes along side with. How cool is that?
n-e-ways what is everyone else reading these days?
i'm not reading any at the moment, but one time i read 1984, Farnham's Freehold and Get Fuzzy during the same month. that was strange, to say the least - especially when i momentarily confused O'Brien with Chubby Huggs
I have just started to read a book by Steve Harvey intitled" Act like a lady-think like a man" which is explaning the pros and cons to a man's way of thinking verses a women way of thinking. He also paints a picture showing that we (meaning the opposite sex) are each very simple minded people who just would like to be loved and appreciated. And that is just within the first two chapter of this inspiring book.
Like you, I'm reading multiple books right now. I keep saying I'm only going to read one at a time, but it never happens.
Right now I'm reading Kisses and Lies by Lauren Henderson, The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides, The Nanny by Melissa Nathan, Dracula by Bram Stoker, and Who's Killing the Great Writers of America? by Robert Kaplow.
I like the music of Eric Clapton since I heard it for the first time at Leeds University as an exchange student in 1972/73. When I awake in the morning I start with a philosophy book - Who am I etc. - by R.D. Precht. Once per week I have to prepare my tuition in Latin or English. Most time I'm surfing in the Internet and writing my diary for my next book at BoD - Tagebuch 3 by dali 48 on twitter - or I'm reading the Nobel Lectures from 2009 back to Boris Pasternak now.(d.48)...
BOOO textbooks. i hope you get to read for pleasure again soon Aqua. Shoot even when I had a lot of textbook reading I always made time for pleasure reading...yea when I was supposed to be studying or doing HW I had a book hiding under the bed so I could read without getting caught
you've got to keep reading, she is a literary author, her writing is amazing. I know what you mean, it's probably the going back and forth in time, I had to not pay any attention to the hours and days and just read it. I haven't seen the movie, did you?
I have a few going on at the same time, different moods~ now, The Lost Symbol, as I love his storylines, Blink by Malcom Gladwell and another one that I pull out when I really want to read great literature- Genuis A Mosiac of One Hundred Exemplary Creative Minds by Harold Bloom.
i am not really a great reader..... to help you understand. Pride and Prejudice.... i tried to read and re read, but it just would not make sense to me..... i now have the d.v.d while i have been at home with my bad back, i have forced myself to watch the d.v.d of the same name, over and over until i fully understand every word that is going on..... and i love it. I always had a concentration problem and am easily distracted. My mum read everything and anything, and read almost up to the minute she died, wish i was like that. It is hard to become a writer when you find reading and concentrating hard, but i sooooo love to write. Confessions of a shop a holic i had no problems with and have now watched the film, 10 times she is a writer, and a bit like me in personality so i related to her. she is funny, a lot younger than me i may add
Oh trust me I hated reading Pride and Prejudice when I was in school and had to read it for english. So I pretended to read it lol. anything by Jane Eyre or was it Austin yea you can tell how I know my classic authors haha or Virgina Woolf I was like *GAG* lol
Which version did you watch? I adore the one with Kiera Knightley. I think with stories set so long ago, it can be difficult to grasp the language. That's why watching a movie based on the book can be easier to understand--we have the actions and facial expressions of the characters to see instead of assume.
Actually I am not reading any right now which is unusual for me as I love to read. I am book fanatic! I love Stephen King and all of his pen named works, V.C. Andrews, Shel Silverstein, C.S. Lewis to name a few of my favorite authors.
As of now I have finished a children's book I wrote and am in the process of promoting it and getting it published and I am very close with offers coming in. At the same time I am working on two other children's books which are nearly finished and a novel which has been two years in the making.
This is the first of his books that I've read, but I've heard a lot about him, I think I'll get hold of some more. The main reason I read Rum Diary is because it's being turned into a film and I like to have read a book before I see the film.
I saw the Time Traveller's Wife film, and read the book. My mum and sister really liked the film, but I wasn't so keen. It jumped around like the book but gave no indiction of the times or dates, so you don't know when its jumping from or to.
Not sure what to make of the Conversations With God industry. Neale Walsh started out saying God talked once to him. Once he made a pile of money, it seems God kept talking to him. I dunno, I guess I'm cynical. However, the stuff IS compelling. I will say that.
I'm reading Eclipse by Stephanie Meyer and Harry Potter and The Sorcerer's Stone by J.K.Rowling right now. I like to read two at a time sometimes, and right now the Harry Potter is actually a refresher for a hub I'm going to write. I've read both books already and thoroughly enjoyed them. They are from my two favorite series' ever.
Defending Life: A Moral and Legal Case Against Abortion Choice by Francis J. Beckwith. Probably the best book I've read on advocating extending the the guarantees of the 5th and 14 Amendments to the preborn.
I am reading, in random rotation :-) ... The Path of Least Resistance. Robert Fritz. Screenplay by Syd Field. Wanderlust by Ann Aguirre Glasshouse by Charles Stross and finally... Dancing with Life, by Phillip Moffitt.
I'm currently reading The Seekers by Daniel J. Boorstin. It's a fairly good book, though if anyone is looking for some good general liberal arts-type books, Boorstin's The Creators was awesome...and 750 pages long, so you'd need some extra time.
Fiction annoys me quickly so I don't read a lot of it, but the last good fiction I read was The Bastard of Istanbul by Elif Shafak.
Reading Affliction by Russell Banks, it is a good read thus far. and I just finished reading Then We Came To The End, By Joshua Ferris. A novel about Office life in the 90s and early 2000s in a Chicago ad agency.
When you read for pleasure, what do you reach for?In trying to discover my niche outside of SEO and HP writing, I am reaching out to my beloved HP community. My question is this: when you read for pleasure...
I've seen a few forum threads/questions about reading lately - asking what types of books you like to read, or how many you've read in the past year, etc....but none have simply asked: what book are you reading right...
