Can we please keep this topic here for a day or two?

I'm reading:

Sacred Contracts - Caroline Myss
In a Sunburned Country - Bill Bryson
Notes from a Small Island - Bill Bryson
I Will Not Die An Unlived Life - Dawna Markova
Ender's Game
and a book by Jon Katz, about saying goodbye to your pets, when they die.

there are more, but I've had most out of the library for too long now.

The blindness episodes of the past few years and mini-strokes have seriously messed up my reading ability of reading as much as I did before.
Pre 2007 I was reading 2 to 5 books a week.


I still read dictionaries and so forth for pleasure, but often online now where I can adjust font size.
Getting things set up so I can listen to audio books recommended by folks, plus some I have read before, such as;
Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire non-fiction history book written by English historian Edward Gibbon and published in six volumes.
Cicero
Philip K. Dick novels
Immanuel Velikovsky books

And ones I wanted to read;
The Hyperion series

And these I will just have to use a magnifying glass to read.
Various acupressure and meridian point therapy books.


Oh yes teasel
Loved Ender's Game!

I once saw a sign that said "sin is death" but if "all deaths are suicide (linda goodman)" and suicide is sin, then shouldnt "death is sin" be more appropriate?

when organic is used to describe food then you know we have come to a dark age in history

The Name Of The Rose (by Umberto Eco.
) is very good I agree!
I need to read his other works too.
There was a fairly good movie done of The Name Of The Rose. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0091605/

I just started Antonia Fraser's "The Journey" which is the story of Marie Antoinette. It is the book which inspired the Sofia Coppola film. I have read the memoirs from Madam Campan ages ago, but finally have got around to reading this. Her research is amazing.

I also have "wake Up: A Life Of The Buddha" by Jack Kerouac in transit...I cannot wait for this!

Thank you for responding.

Amowls, I haven't read the Vampire Diaries yet. I keep forgetting to order them in. I still have to finish the Golden Compass series, too.
I've heard from several people, that they're reading The Marriage Plot, too. I'll have to order it in.

mockingbird, I know several people immersing themselves in Skyrim. I was in Best Buy, just before Christmas, and saw huge books being sold. I've never had one of those games, but I'd love to try it.


I'll be back later.

I rarely read fiction.
Most of my current readings are on Zen philosophy.
The rest are nerdy stuff for my work projects.
Lots of online readings too as it's more convenient with all the time I spend online.
I keep reading again and again Viktor Frankl's meaning of life. If you haven't read it at least once, I recommend it.

reading one of my "guilty pleasure" genre and author.

Lord of the Abyss by Nalini Singh.

Paranormal romance or fantasy would be the genre I guess.

Not sure why I am so fascinated with it. But I love reading her books.
