Okay I'll admit
Seduced by the highlander---I found it,,,,,,very educational
Oooo I have to read that. Have you tried 'Silver Angel' by Johanna Lindsey. Great. Great. Great. Well it was for me, that is.
American Sniper: The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in U.S. Military History by Chris Kyle, Scott McEwen and Jim DeFelice
Good book, everybody may not agree with him but, it is a must read of how Iraq was for him.
I am definitely going to get this. Thanks for posting :-)
Is it a book that a 15-year-old boy might appreciate? Thoughts?
Looks interesting. I'm trying to widen my varitey of books to more educational and historical ones (not historical romances that is) LOL
Reading (very slowly as my free time continues to dwindle) the final book of the Heir series: The Dragon Heir by Cinda Williams Chima.
I'm reading "Between Friends" by Audrey Howard. Almost reached towards the end 480/543 pages.
I am so happy that I live in a town rich enough to have a great library that is always buying new books. Lucky me.
Just started reading:
The Writer's Idea Book [Jack Heffron]
Connectome: How the Brain's Wiring Makes Us Who We Are, by Sebastian Seung, Professor of Computational Neuroscience at MIT.
Now, whenever the word 'neuroscience' is mentioned - I think of that horrible Batman shooting. I am sure that the school that he went to will have less people going there for education in the future because it would be a lingering spookiness around the place.
I wonder what experiments they were doing at the lab and if Holmes was a paid lab rat.
I don't get the library books too much anymore lately because it's for only two weeks, and sometimes I don't get back in time and then I owe money. But maybe I will, if I get to the library more often. I agree the library has the best books
Just finished two books.
"The World at Night" by Alan Furst - Historical fiction set just before and into WWII
"Ragtime" by E.L. Doctrow - Historical fiction set in NYC from 1900-1917
Both were really good books.
I'm taking a break from research and re-reading ALL of the Andrew Lang fairy tale collections. On my iPad with the fonts enlarged enough so I can see it without my reading glasses, they run to 500+ pages each!
I love listening to audiobooks & lectures from The Teaching Company.
Does anybody have links to free audiobooks?
audiobooks, download the classics

On my reading list now:
- "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" by Stephen Chbosky
- "The Hunger Games" trilogy by Suzanne Collins
- "My Sister's Keeper" by Jodi Picoult
- "Julie and Julia" by Alex Prud'homme, Julia Child, Julie Powell
'reading' an audiobook, 'Decoding Reality: The Universe as Quantum Information' by
I did a hub that included Vlatko's video - but can't add the link here or it will be deleted. I find this stuff so fascinating - weird, eerie, spooky, strange and bizarre. Decades ago I started getting into this by reading a very thin book published in 1884, "Flatland, A Romance of Many Dimensions a satirical novella Written pseudonymously as "a Square".
here's a movie based on the book http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mfglluny8Z0
But the movie PC's the woman's place, in the book it's a bad position. I like the original book better.
I'm reading "Mother of Wolves" by Zoe Brooks, and "The Knife Thrower" by Steven Millhauser. I'm also listening to the Game of Thrones series with my kids while driving (which is going to last FOREVER at this rate.)
I'm reading Eyes of Justice by Lisa Wiehl and Just finished "Mission Possible" by Eva Moskowitz
Listen to the audio book :
The Age of Entanglement: When Quantum Physics Was Reborn by Louisa Gilder
It is a book about conversations throughout the decades and how the big brains struggled with the craziness of Quantum Physics. It also cleared up a bunch of weirdness as to the word 'entanglement' that Schrödinger used in English but in German is more of a 'cross-linked'
It even hurt Einstein's brain to think about it!
"Honey, garlic & vinegar: Home remedies and recipes" by Dr Patrick Quillin.
On vacation and picked it up at my daughters house. These household items are superfoods. I have used them over the years. Apple cider vinegar is the vinegar of choice.
I will be re-reading Davince Code and I am also reading John The Revelator.
I didn't read The DaVinci Code but I saw the movie. The guy was sued for plagiarism but the two writers have lost their case against Dan Brown & now have £3m in legal costs
Brown got a bunch of historical facts wrong such as the heretical church in Southern France who believed that the human body 'traps' the soul - so perpetuating Christ's bloodline would be the last thing they would do as in his book.
I am currently reading "The 12/59 Shuttle From Yesterday to Today" by our own billybuc. He was kind enough to send me a hard copy to read. So far, very entertaining! It's very different than his usual writings found here on HubPages.
I just finished The Fallen Angel by Daniel Silva. I loved this, couldn't put it down. I've read all his 'Gabriel Allon' books. Outstanding series that has NEVER disappointed. Gripping, fast paced, well-researched, and excellent standard of prose.
I just bought a copy of Gai-Jin by James Clavell. Cannot wait to read it, Shogun and Tai-Pan were great books!
I just finished reading "Crash into Me" by Albert Borris. Great YA book. I also recommend the Cape Light series books by Thomas Kinkade and Katherine Spencer. Moving and enjoyable series. All of Luanne Rice books are also moving and unforgettable. You will enjoy them a great deal and they will connect with you in some way.
"What Book are you reading, just read, plan to read?"
It's been a long time...
Gotta get my person to the library...
I'm halfway through Eckhart Tolle's The Power of Now: A Guide To Spiritual Enlightenment. Has anyone else flipped through this one?
I'm reading Christine Feehan's Dark series or sometimes called Carpathian series. They are romances about vampire type men, pretty steamy. )
AWESOME book: The audio book - The Age of Entanglement: When Quantum Physics Was Reborn by Louisa Gilder
(interesting) audiobook - Physics of the Impossible: A Scientific Exploration into the World of Phasers, Force Fields, Teleportation, and Time Travel by Michio Kaku
so-so book Content Rules: How to Create Killer Blogs, Podcasts, Videos, Ebooks, Webinars (and More) That Engage Customers and Ignite Your Business (New Rules Social Media Series) by Ann Handley and C. C. Chapman (not such a good book)
Planning to read
No Easy Day: The Firsthand Account of the Mission That Killed Osama Bin Laden
About to start on Truman Capote's 'Other Voices, Other Rooms'.
I have just finished reading 'It's not about the bike' by Lance Armstrong and am currently reading 'The Hunger Games' by Suzanne Collins.
I'm currently reading "Snuff" by Terry Pratchett. I'm trying to steadily work my way through the entire Discworld series.
I've just finished reading a rather unnerving book called "Dark Matter" by Michelle Paver.
Within the past few months I have read For Whom The Bell Tolls by Hemingway, Of Human Bondage by Somerset Maughm, and Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte. All three books were great and I'll probably select my next book from one of the three authors.
Eeeyah. I read parts of it and it's just as scattered as he is. It's okay if you're in the mood for an endless stream of drugs and chaos (aka, rock 'n' roll) but it's not great literature.
The lead singer for Red Hot Chili Peppers was actually a better writer (of his own book, I mean.)
Mankind: Pro Wrestler Mick Foley (Pro Wrestler) wrote a book by himself in longhand. It was a good book.
The other wrestlers books who 'wrote' with ghost writers like from Chyna or The Rock - sucked.
I think reading is a very good thing for us. It is a treasure store of the most valuable knowledge.
It's not a book, but a magazine that I picked up at the free bin next to the library. It was issue #145 Spring 2012 'Intelligence Report' by the Southern Poverty Law Center. A special issue of the "The year in Hate & Extremism, The Patriot Movement Explodes" with Hate group map & listings.
I love my library - plenty new books all the time. When I was living in the capital city of Honolulu - it wasn't that way - plus it was closed 1/2 the time.
Next books I've just borrowed yesterday to read:
Who's in Charge?: Free Will and the Science of the Brain by Michael S. Gazzaniga
Smersh: Stalin's Secret Weapon, Soviet Military Counterintelligence in WWII by Vadim J. Birstein
I just finished "Blind Birds" by Ludvík Souček; it's a great Czech(oslovakian) sci-fi. Will have to read more by the author - the more I read, the more I like him!
I just finished rereading "The Good Earth" by Pearl S. Buck.
I love books that are heart-wrenching and realistic and make me think about faith, and life and death.
So now, what to read next?
I will begin another couple or three books today...one will be a classic, and the other one looks like "My Guantanamo Diary-The Detainees and the Stories They Told Me" by Mahvish Rukhsana Khan. Oh, the third I have already begun - "The Promise" by Danielle Steele.
Have a good Labor Day read, you all!
I'm reading True Devotion to Mary,
Sex and the Soul of a Woman,
and finished Seduced by the Highlander a few months ago
I'm reading " what they don't teach you in film school": subtitle: 161 strategies for making your own movie no matter what". By Camille Landau and Tiare White
I'm reading 'All She Wants" by Jonathan Harvey and I must say it's a great read. However if you're planning on reading it - don't read it on public transport - I found myself laughing out loud at it on a train and in return was given a few weird looks.
Another book I recommend you read is 'Confessions of a Shopaholic' by Sophie Kinsella - another one which will have you laughing none stop! :L
I hope this has helped.
borrowed from the library today:
Victory For Us Is to See You Suffer: In the West Bank with the Palestinians and the Israelis [Philip Winslow]
From the Terrorists' Point of View: What They Experience and Why They Come to Destroy [Fathali M. Moghaddam]
How to Master Online Learning (Peterson's How to Master Online Learning) by Peterson's (Oct 5, 2010)
I'm currently reading the Black Jewell Trilogy, and it is excellent! It's been a slow process reading it because I'm so busy but also because it's just so intense! I keep needing to take breaks in order to process it all. It is a trilogy of fantasy novels about the good side of evil.
F. Paul Wilson - Infernal
A few German books lay ahead of me plus two Dutch books (currently learning Dutch).
I am reading the book, "'The Twilight War' Between The U.S. And Iran" and it's a GREAT read. I suggest that people read it. Talks about all the background infighting of the oval office during Reagan years. Covers all the way up to 2011.
can listen to a sample at http://www.npr.org/2012/07/24/157248254 … s-and-iran
or read a sample at http://www.npr.org/books/titles/1564873 … pt#excerpt
Do not recommend 'The Man's Playbook" it's a junk book
"Allah, Liberty, and Love" by Irshad Manji is the current book I'm reading. It's an eye-opener for Western Muslims and non-Muslims alike. Very witty author, must read.
Plan to read "Becoming China's Bitch: And Nine More Catastrophes We Must Avoid Right Now" [Peter D. Kiernan]
I have a very good library with a steady influx of new books all the time.
She's come undone by wally lamb
I didn't finish the very end thou, I was disturbed that she didn't do better than she should have.
The 48 Laws of Power. by Robert Greene and Joost Elffers
Very good book - lot of historic examples.
There are two reasons to read this book:
1. For attack: To gain power, as have others who have carefully observed the Laws;
2. For defense: To be aware of ways that people may be trying to manipulate you.
I am currently reading a very amusing book about 'Broadcast News' and life in the newsrooms
and also ' A Tiny Bit Marvelous' from the Dawn French which again is a chortle so far.
i just finished reading Brothers in Battle:Best of Friends. By William Guarnere and Edward Heffron.....again. It's one of the best books I have ever read, if not THE best. It was invigorating and inspirational and did I mention quite humourous.
I am currently reading Black Diamond by John F. Dobbyn.
I plan on reading The Godfather, Zlata's diary, Shotgun City, The Secret Speech, The Invisible,Countdown to Terror, April Fools Day and The Dealer and the Dead.

I need something to read. I was so desperate last week I read my daughter's Twilight series (all four books). They were not the best, but better than nothing.I like Non-Fiction and Fiction. Not big into Science Fiction. I like to get lost in books.Any suggestions?

Have you ever read a book that had you looking over your shoulder?A long time ago I read a book by Peter Straub, "Ghost Story" and it was so terrifyingly eerie, I had to sit with my back to a wall as I was so creeped out while reading it. It made the hair on the back of my neck stand up...

I'm reading Suite Francaise by Irene Nemirovsky. The story follows a number of families and individuals as they evacuate Paris in 1940 following German invasion. I am a huge fan of historical drama novels, which is why the book caught my attention. Although it did take me about 50 pages to really...
