Re: What are you reading?

I tried to read The Host again but I finally gave up. I have tried this book 2 times now. I made it further this time. It is just not my thing. So I am currently reading The Story of a Marriage and The Story of Edgar Sawtelle.

Re: What are you reading?

I'm reading "The Book Thief". It started off a little different than any book I've ever read before but I'm truely enjoying it so far.

Re: What are you reading?

If I may have the liberty of expressing my opinion I would just like to say that The Book Thief is one of the best books I have read, and I hope you enjoy it.  I provides a new perspective in World War Two literature and is, as you said, very different from most books.

Re: What are you reading?

I am currently reading "Left to Tell" by Immaculee Ilibagaza.  It is about her experience with the Rwandan genocide in 1994.  It is very spiritual, despite the grim theme.  I am in the thick of it now, and I find myself unable to put it down...if it weren't for that pesky "job", or any other reason to sleep, I would have finished it by now. 

 

It comes (so-far) highly recommended.

Re: What are you reading?

I just finished The Zookeeper's Wife by Diane Ackerman (non-fiction) and am still reading The Bastard of Istanbul by Elif Shafak. They are both very readable and so interesting in their respective genres.

Hi all. I was curious to find out if anyone here has read "A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court", by Mark Twain. I just finished reading a preview of the 1st page - it looks pretty intriguing so far. If you've read it, please let me know your thoughts about it - did you like, dislike? Thanks, Greg
