Nobody seems to read trash here. I keep waiting for someone to post that they are reading Danielle Steele or the like!
I don't read Danielle Steele, but I do read popular novels a la John Grisham and the like. I just finished To Kill a Mockingbird last night. Emma is the paperback I carry in my purse so I'm never stranded without reading material, so that'll be slow going. Next book in the hopper for home reading is Ruled Britannia by Harry Turtledove. Don recommended it to me.
“There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.” ~ John Rogers
Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close
(can't seem to finish it..I keep losing the book)
oh, I loved that book so much.
"I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be. You can never be what you ought to be until I am what I ought to be. This is the interrelated structure of reality." -Martin Luther King, Jr.
I read mostly books about history, culture, religion, philosophy, & the like, mostly of Ancient Egypt, classical Greece & Rome, but most importantly, my greatest interest, the Byzantine Empire.
Currently I'm reading "The Last Centuries of Byzantium 1261-1453" by Donald Nicol
I'll read fiction once in a while but that other stuff is what I almost always read.
