Politics books. Tons of them...although I'm not reading them all since I only need to read the parts where it talks about ethnic vote, which is a subject that doesn't interest me that much. I also have a psychology book, but it's a little too complex for me and it's not what I thought it was. :/
I've recently read La Scouine by Albert Laberge, which is the first realist (?) book in Quebec. Not bad. The name of the book in English is apparently Bitter Bread.
I'd like to find good books to read and my library is so small that a lot of books I'd like to read are missing. jdhgjf... I need books. Someone help me.

I have just finished the Da Vinci Code, but now I`m nt reading anything.
I should be reading Bestiario, from Cortázar.
I just finished reading that a few days ago. I thought it was interesting, and I learned a lot about the players I grew up watching, who I didn't know much about. It was definetly one of my favorite sports books.

Im up to Eagles in the sky, so far the diamond hunters was the best
I read jack the ripper's diary dont remember the name of the author who did all the research and stuff but it's quite cool, from all the facts found by the author jack the ripper was supposed to have been some english guy from liverpool called james maybrick. anyway it was a cool read.
Like most of you I've been having to read one book a week and its getting a bit annoying as some are just so boring. So I read
- My antonia by willa cather (boring)
- wild geese by ostenso
- a good man is hard to find by flannery o'connor (I advise you not to read it although you might like the first one where everybody gets shot by a very polite misfit)
- Margaret atwood : lady oracle (not boring)
- Grace paley : collected stories (can't read it cause its too boring)
- Monkey beach by eden robinson (great book, canadian gothic, its about a teenage indian girl and she sees ghosts and sees a weird gnome each time someone she knows is about to die)
thats it for what I had to read in my american studies module, but I like to read so it's not that bad, I'd just prefer reading a lot of gothic stephen king or dean koontz and that sort of stuff, I actually write myself, started writing a few different stories, at the moment I'm writing a horror movie scenario cause its fun
The Godfather by Mario Puzo
Once you start, it's hard to stop reading.

Did anyone on here read Dante's "The Divine Comedy" (Inferno, Purgatorio & Paradiso)? And if yes; do you recommend it? What I read about it on Wikipedia sounded interesting enough
i just started to read The Hobbit and so far i think its better than Lord of the Rings.
