    Okay, so my summer will soon be starting & I have promised myself that I am going to do tons of reading while I am soaking up the sun. [img]/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif[/img] Any good books out there that you would recommend? I have yet to read Still Me and Nothing is Impossible by C. Reeve so I am off to the library today to pick those up (hopefully they'll have them this time!). Thanks in advance.

    Reading a great book right now called: Devil In The White City. Its about the Chicago Worlds Fair of 1893 and its various characters, murder and a great historic reflection of the times.

    If you're looking for a good sci book I strongly recommend - In Search of The Lost Cord. You will learn a ton and it reads like a mystery.

          Check this book out.

          Sleeping With the Devil
          by Suzanne Finstad

          Editorial Reviews
          From Publishers Weekly
          Finstad ( Heir Not Apparent ) fails to paint a credible picture of a romantic, naive younger woman who fell in love with a handsome, sociopathic older man, with disastrous consequences. The situation appears to be that both Barbara Piotrowski, California beauty contest winner, and Richard Minns, Texas millionaire, expected they would get everything they wanted; when they wanted each other, both became obsessed. Their passionate and stormy relationship ended when she left him; a short time later, he tried, she contends, to have her killed. She was left paralyzed after the shooting, and he allegedly fled the country. The aftermath of their violence would seem to sully justice: Minns was never questioned by police, despite the fact that he is reported to have revisited his native state frequently. For her part, Piotrowski has made amazing strides to rehabilitate herself. Photos.

            I read that a few months ago. It was really interesting. I hadn't known anything about the 1893 worlds fair or the serial killer before reading the book.

                  I just started "The Tipping Point"....the talks about trends in history and how just one individual can make a huge change in society. i.e Paul Revere
                  Have any of you guys heard of the hundred monkey theory? very similar to that.
                  Anyways, an interesting read nonetheless

                    If you're interested in epic sagas, try The Wheel of Time Series, by Robert Jordan. Long, but good if you are into that type of thing.

                    Dan Brown's Angels & Demons and The DaVinci Code are good. Classically, Bullfinch's Mythology is good, as is Edith Hamilton's Mythology.

                    Do you have interests in any specific genre?

                      I have been reading, or rather listening to, everthing I can find in the library by these two authors:
                      John Lescroart
                      David Baldacci
                      I have become a fan of audio books. They don't hurt like a hard bound book does when you drop it in face when you fall asleep. [img]/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif[/img]

                          Steven - I finished The DaVinci Code about a month ago. 85% of the book was great. The last 15% was ridiculous. [img]/forum/images/smilies/tongue.gif[/img]

                          Very educational though and definitely makes you think about what's being "sold", and has been "sold" through the Catholic church's dogma.

                              Obed - I liked Angels & Demons better, but I think that's because it played to the math geek in me. I read it during the passing of the Pope, so the overtones were kinda weird... but educational, nonetheless.

                              The last 15% of DaVinci was a little... ummm... yeah, I'll leave it at that. [img]/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif[/img]
