      Cool, I haven't read a true story book yet, but I will think about.

    The Lost Estate by Alain-Fournier. It was the only book written by Fournier, who died in WW1.

    I am also reading "The Red Bandana" about a hero in 9/11.

      That's cool reading about a real life hero in our time, 9/11 was and is a sad event, and will always be a part of our history.

    Just read,"The Pearl" by John Steinbeck.  For some reason, I missed reading it as a tween for junior high school.  It was never assigned but whatever.  I really enjoyed it.  It read like a folktale.  I get why it's a classic and I get more why Steinbeck is awesome.

      Dohn, popular author's books seem to always become classics by word of mouth, or if they're become best sellers. Thanks for your answer.

    I just finished reading I Am Malala. It was an amazing book and I would highly recommend it. I also am participating in a reading challenge. If you are familiar with Gilmore Girls, you know that there are a lot of books mentioned. I have a complete list of all the books mentioned in a hub I wrote, Gilmore Girls Reading Challenge. Check it out for the names of some great books!

      Kate, I will check out your hub about Gilmore Girls Reading Challenge. I heard of that before, I think it was a TV show.

      It sure is. I love this list because it takes books from every genre. I am really excited for it to open my eyes.

    I am reading Father Sergius, by Leo Tolstoy and next up is The Kreutzer Sonata. Before that I finished the Southern Reach Trilogy, by Jeff Vandermeer - contemporary fantasy/ horror novels, with a lovecraftian feel.

      Charidimos, you must really be a reader, because reading a trilogy is time consuming and requires full engagement. Cool

      I abstained from reading for several years, so I'm trying to make up for lost time.

    I've read several business and career books lately and wrote reviews on them for Hubpages.

      Hi Tamara, writing a book after reading certain books is good idea. I only wrote 2 book reviews so far: "You're All That" by Paula White, and "Starting Your Morning Right" by Joyce Meyer.

    Most recently I've read "Dark Matter" by Blake Crouch and  "On Such A Full Sea" by Chang-rae Lee, both novels.

    The Associate by John Grisham. The guy keeps ticking. Though this one was a bit sinister, don't know what to make of it really. Is it big business, big corporations were the law has nothing to do with anything and its all about money, is this the American dream or the American dream "they would want us to believe in and its sadly not true for many people …………a pity. I am starting on a book by Elizabeth George…..something to do with Guernsey……care to give me the title….would sure appreciate it because I keep forgetting

      Hi Marwan,
      Some reading is fundamental or entertaining. Is the name of the Elizabeth George book "A Place of Hiding?"
