  • Northern Lights by Nora Roberts Love her books. Perfect Family by Pam Lewis first time I read her. Awesome book. Green Eggs and Ham- favorite Suess book from childhood. Read it over and over for grandkids!
  • Not in any particular order - and jumping around in genre: -- "Arrows of the Queen" by Mercedes Lackey (science fantasy & to get started on her Valdemar books) -- "The Prophet" by Kahlil Gibran -- "Outlander" by Diana Gabaldon -- Try David McCullough's books (on John Adams or 1776 or ...) or any of Ken Burn's televised documentaries (The West is particularly good, in my opinion) -- Try Joseph Campbell for mythology books - non fiction -- Kid's book "The Velveteen Rabbit" -- Any of Elizabeth Shown Mill's books for how to do citations of ressearch .. and how to evaluate "evidence". She's taylored her reference books to those doing family history. (for research examples and typical sources) -- Can give you lots of science fantasy, "cozy book" or mystery titles if you like. -- "Writing Down the Bones" by Natalie Goldberg (non fiction how to book for writers) -- What book did you read last that you enjoyed? :)

  • [ I've only read a few of others' suggestions but of those I read, their answers are great reads, too ] Mine: " The Plague Dogs " Richard Adams ( author of 'Watership Down;' in many ways, I like this book better than Down ) " The Midwich Cuckoos " John Wyndham ( the original novel the movies " Village of the Damned " were based on ) " Swan Song " Robert McCammon ( to me, though somewhat similar in subject, this book is SO much better than Stephen King's ' The Stand. '

The Poisonwood Bible--Barbara Kingsolver I'm reading Franny and Zooey right now. We'll see if it's any good...

  • Push by Sapphire (can't wait to see the movie!) The Alchemist The Scarlet Letter (my all time fave classic)
  • "Into the Wild" by Jon Krakauer. A true story for every parent and teenager. Read the book, a triumph of accurate research and dispassionate reporting. Forget about watching the movie of the same name, based on the book, but turned into emotional dross. http://www.amazon.com/Into-Wild-Jon-Krakauer/dp/0307387178/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1248593420&sr=1-1
  • HG wells wor of the worlds revelation marx for beginners
  • I really enjoyed: The Doctor's Wife - Brian Moore I went through a reminiscent phase of reading irish authors, and read everything possible by Brian Moore. You may know him from The Lonely Passion of Judith Hearne - made into a film starring Maggie Smith. But The Doctor's Wife is particularly good - written by a man, but startingly accurate from the viewpoint of a woman! The Plague - Albert Camus A little heavy, perhaps, but my favourite of all Camus' works - the plague attacks everyone equally - but how do we respond to it? (almost) anything by James Patterson a bit of light reading, but good plots.

  • Currently I'm reading 'City of Glass' by Cassandra Eason its the 3rd of 3 books I'm really enjoying it! Also 'Kissed by an Angel' had me very much enthralled for a time :D altho I cannot seem to remember the author... D: And I will probably get DRed to fuck for this but I read Twilight and I did enjoy it... Well all except the last book... God that was crappy.
  • If you want something different than you have likely read try 'life and def' by Russel Simmons!! It's a great book for all ages and both genders.
  • "Boy's Life" by Robert R. McCammon - Excellent coming of age story set in the southern states in the sixties. IMHO, the best book written in the English language. I read it at least once every couple of years. "The Day of the Triffids" by John Wyndham - SF story about a post-apocalyptic Great Britain. Written in 1951, it still manages to stay fresh. "Time After Time" by Karl Alexander - I included this novel in honor of H.G. Wells birthday. It's a story about what would happen if Jack the Ripper had used H.G. Wells' time machine to visit modern days. The list is a bit slanted toward SF... but what the heck... I'm a fan. Hope this helps.

  • read BLINK, by malcolm gladwell. it is interesting. TIPPING POINT was another one by the same author. and OUTLIERS was less interesting. three interesting books by the same author.
  • These books were a real eye-opener. The last one is not about religion. It's about religion's role in society and how it keeps people in line. The second one talks about how all three do that. The first is a collection of essays. It's my favorite. Matrix and Philosophy : Welcome to the Desert of the Real (Popular Culture and Philosophy Series) . Taking the Red Pill : Science, Philosophy and Religion in The Matrix . The Gospel Reloaded : Exploring Spirituality and Faith in the Matrix
