Today I am very angry :evil:
I have wasted my money buying the most disgusting book I have ever read: "Signora da Vinci" by Robin Maxwell.
It is the apotheosis of banality and some people call it: "an historical book!!!"

The last one was The Book on the Taboo Against Knowing Who You Are, by Alan Watts. Here's a quote:

“Peace can be made only by those who are peaceful, and love can be shown only by those who love. No work of love will flourish out of guilt, fear, or hollowness of heart, just as no valid plans for the future can be made by those who have no capacity for living now.”


Before that I read George Martin's Clash of Kings.

Wow, this one's great. Huxley's Doors of Perception/Heaven and Hell is worth reading too.

Hello Booksworms,

this weekend I finished „Into the Wild” by Jon Krakauer. By the way … I read it the third time and I like it very much – it is a very tragic story. It tells a lot about of dreams of everyone of us, but the guy of the story tried to live his dreams and failed because of the reality.

I am reading " Lettera a una Chiesa che ha dimenticato Gesù".
It is a pity that we cannot find this book in English.

E.Olmi writes how religion must be Joy and serenity. Beliving in another life after death has to give us the power to go on and be generous and understanding with neighbor.

I have to recommend DEATH OF A SUPERHERO by Anthony MacCarten. It is not a new book but I have discovered it only now :-)
It’s a very special book although it is very simple (for teenagers?). I am reading it in Italian language but I want to buy it also in English. I think there is a lot to learn about new words and a new way to write.
This book tells the story of a terminally ill boy from adolescent and adult perspectives. Don’t worry it isn’t a sad, bore, weepy book!
Death of a Superhero includes comic dynamism, cinematic scene changes, and passages of calm, emotionally intensive narration.
You will read it in a night

I’ve finished just now to read “Inferno” (Hell) by Dan Brown.
It is a thriller.
Telling the true I have found it a little boring and overfull of information given just to give .

What I can say about this book is that, if you have never visited Venezia and Firenze, after its reading you will start to save money to have a trip there.
