Yeah, I have Kindle, so AZ usually send me updates of new books. I had it preordered because I wanted to know what he was up this time. It's a disappointment, I guess. I shoulda ordered the Magician's Elephant. I heard this book is very good despite it's a children book. Again, all the books I've enjoyed seem to fall into children section.

His book bored me yesterday, so I went to AZ to check out the reviews and found this hilarious one.

If you read the book, you'd see why. It's something I wouldn't suggest you to do, though. Nevertheless, maybe your taste is different than mine since you enjoyed the DaVinci Code which I didn't.

No, I haven't read the book. I simply watched a report on TV.
I have never read Brown's books, I prefer classics.

I would give this Lost Symbol book 2 or 2.5 out of 5, so if I were you, I would wait for the book to be on sale or buy it in paperback. If I knew it was this bad, I wouldda waited for about two years and then bought it in paperback for the price of $4, including taxes. I paid $9.99 for my Kindle version. I just can't help thinking of the money I couldda saved. :roll:

As far as I now, in Russia Brown's new book will issue in December.

P.S.
What is the paperback? Do you return it back after reading? :-)

Now I am reading a novel "Mont-Oriol" written by French novelist Guy de Maupassant.

Are you planning to buy it?

What's a paperback book? Did you check the dictionary? I really don't know what's the definition they have for it, but from what I understand paperback book is a book that is printed on cheap quality paper, and the price is cheaper than that of a hardcover book because of the differences in covers. Hardcover books are sometimes used as a collection. People don't normally do that with paperback books (you don't wanna look cheap and crazy, do you :lol: ). Also, most paperback books are small, pocket size. They're convenient to read while on the plane. The ink is easily smudged. The font is super small. The bottom line is it's a read-and-throw-away book to me.

Yeah, you'll return it after reading if you borrow one at the local library or bought it by accident at a bookstore. Otherwise, it's yours to keep. I keep my hardcover books as my collection whilte donating the paperback ones to the library. It's hard to keep the paperbacks for long since after a period of time the ink will start to fade due to the cheap quality paper.

Hello Friends,
Reading books is my hobbie other than music and gaming....You'll generally find with books....Nothing Last Forever,Five Points Some One,Wind mills of the God,One night at call center,DaVinci Code,etc are my favorite books.Latest book that I have read is Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus by Dr. John Gray. It was a great experience reading it. This book puts light on the reasons which cause conflict between Men and Women.....
