    Hi Carrie;

    Soldier of the Great War by Mark Helprin

    Life of Pi by Yan Martel

    You want to be a writer so do anything by Hemingway. His novels are primers on how to write clearly. In fact, do it all.

    Mystic River, great movie and an equal or better book.

    His Brother's Keeper by Jonathan Weiner is a work of non-fiction about efforts to find a cure for ALS. Very well done.

    I 2nd the emotion of In Search of the Lost Cord. It is educational and will help you understand where we are really at with regard to a cure.

    Lucky Man by Michael J. Fox is good.

    Seabiscuit by Laura Hillenbrand

    Tao Teh King by Lao Tzu. Look for the Archie J. Bahm version.

    Ok, that should take care of June. Check back next month for more.

      Tell us what kind of books you like, it is supposed to be fun reading, right? Try a Confederacy of Dunces, it is about a bunch of real charachters in New Orleans-hilarious. Life of Pi is what I am reading now. Any book by Barbara Kingsolver is delicious, great charachters.

          Right now I'm reading Women Who Run With the Wolves by Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Ph.D. Actually, I'm rereading it. I read it not long after it came out.

              i read 3 of dan browns books this year , liked them all very much, da Vinci code, angels and demons and deception point, reading state of fear now i am hooked on Ebooks now, since i can down load the books to computer or PDA , this way i always have the book with me , nothing extra to carry around, plus the font is adjustable, so i do not need to wear reading glasses, and the back lit lcd screen works great in poor light areas

                  I thought of this series after I posted yesterday. For just plain fun reading you might try the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich. Stephanie and her reformed hooker sidekick Lula are a couple of inept bounty hunters. An adudio version, from the library, read by C.J.Critt is guaranteed to give you a few laughs.

                      Harry Potter series. It may be "for kids", but its a great read.

                        Carrie-

                        I am a John Grisham fan, so I would recommend any of his. As a matter of fact, he has a new one out that I haven't read yet. When I get it, I'll let ya know how I like that one. [img]/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif[/img]

                        Metro-
                        Where do you get the ebooks from? That would be soooooo much easier/better for me. I've got a reading comprehension issue & if I could change the font size etc, that would make a world of difference!! Thanks [img]/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif[/img]

                          I love to read and one of the best books I've ever read is "Blindness" by Jose Saramango. Its about a town of people that suddenly go blind and a group of people who go through it togther. My Mom told me she hated me for recommending it but it was so good she couldn't put it down. Saramango won the 1998 Nobel Prize in literature and the story is so absolutely fascinating that you will not be able to put the book down.

                          lilsister - I just finished "Life of Pi" a few weeks ago and I would highly recommend that also.

                            Grisham's new book is titled "The Broker". I enjoyed it. Makes you want to go to Italy.

                              I'm not a reader at all, unfortunatly, cause I've tried,it seems like a relaxing thing to do, I just get bored just sitting or lying there. My favorite books were actually the only 2 books I ever read cover to cover, they were "1984" and "Run Nicky Run" That's pretty bad hey. I guess they're my favorite cause I don't know any others.
