The Byzantium trilogy by John Julius Norwich.
A shame Byzantium has been contempted in western spheres since Edward Gibbon.

There are books now?! Jeez.

Captain Corelli's Mandolin

Awesome but I'm going to join every other woman who's read this book and say: I didn't like the last quarter. I don't care how much it reflected what would have happened at the time, I like happy endings damnit!

Today I finaly finished the book Custer And Crazy Horse. It was writen by Stephen Ambrose and the book was about the wild west and both charecters take on similar events. The book was good but a little boering at times.

Some people think reading is for so call them geeks. But is not. I told my friend the other day that i love to read that it was a secret cant tell no one because im already getting bullied.

And she didn't laugh she said i understand i used to have a pashion for reading. I said" What happend" she just simply said
"Bullieing put me off reading."

Why do people bully people who like to read and take the mick out of them. What have they got against reading?

They dont have the vocabulary to verbally insult anyone so they just resort to bulleying
I wouldnt worry about it. In five or ten years you'll be employing them.
Read on!
Anyways i just finished a book called Year of Wonders. its about a village that quarantines itself during the Plague. Its written by a british author and is very good.
Gail Tsukiyama has quite a number of novels i recommend as well, particularly The Samurai's Garden. Haven't read it in ages and I'm pretty sure it's a fairly easy read, but still a beautiful story.

Shiva's right. People make fun of me all the time for bringing huge books and reading them during class breaks.
But then they try to read the title and fail miserably. Who gives a shit? I've always been a bookworm and classmates have made me cry when I was a kid for it.

Now I laugh (ok, sneer) when they make fun of my reading. It only shows how ignorant they are....and that they are proud of being so.

The Ulster Cycle- wow a much better time than the illiad.
Full of heroic imagery and daring doo ( yes I found a way to use that in a sentance).

The books by winston churhill regarding WWII not bad but a little preachy.
Get tough a ww2 british close combat training manual
A dumbasses guide to tea
A idiots guide to wine

In all fairness, he does read the line of the "story" before he colors the picture.

Being a dad does have its benefits, you get to mock in an entire new way.

Awww, I loved that book. In high school, my English teacher gave it to me to read as a test audience. She loved the book, and if I liked it too, it would go on the reading list.

Years later, my sister read the Life of Pi for her English reading list at that school :icon_bigg

Not nearly as high-brow as the rest of you lot, but I enjoy a bit of light reading now and then, so at the moment I'm reading And Another Thing;The World According to Clarkson by Jeremy Clarkson. Don't always agree with his views on things (particularly gay rights to marry or adopt) but at least he expresses them freely, without concern of what people may think of him and I always respect that in people. Especially if what they're saying is cutting against the grain. Plus he always tends to have his say in an especially funny manner. Good book so far.

I started reading the Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay yesterday, read 8 pages and went to bed. On waking up about lunch time I realised that I fancied reading abit more. So I read the rest of it. It was rather good.
