I consider myself an avid book reader, specially since my retirement, fourteen years ago. I'm currently reading two books simultaneously: Jack Kerouak's "On The Road" and "The Complete Western Stories" of Elmore Leonard. I've also just finished John LeCarré's "A Delicate Truth" and Arthur Miller's "A From the Bridge." As you can appreciate it is an eclectic list, it covers a wide field of preferences. Anyway, I'd recommend John LeCarré's book to those who like British old fashioned spy stories. I've enjoyed it with great pleasure. Reading it, while sipping an eighteen old scotch whiskey will increase the enjoyment (not for underage folk).
I'd like to post some more complete comments about some of those titles later, once I have assembled my ideas and find the right way to express them in English. For the moment, consider this post as an essay about how to post a post in this highly interesting forum.

Recently I have finished ''The Doll''. I'm from Poland, so this book is a classical example of set text. It is incredibly great book! It was written in 19th century by Boleslaw Prus. Now I am reading ''If I stay''. When I finish, I will write something about it.

I am reading Jane Austen - Ema. It's a pre-intermediate level if I'm not mistaken

Hi! The latest book I read recently was "The Master and Margarita" by Mikhail Bulgakov. This book has all: merry mischief and melancholy sadness, romantic love and obsession magical, magical mystery and reckless game with the evil spirit. And now I'm reading "Miserable" by Victor Hugo.

I'm recently finished reading Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck. The novel beautifully captures the life and times during the Great Depression. The story is about two ranch workers George and Lennie and the dreams they harbor. Whether or not they manage to make them come true, that's something you'll have to find out by reading the book. The book also emphasizes on the role the society essays when it comes to the lives of common people. Of Mice and Men is both inspiring and heartbreaking.

I also finished reading The Cuckoo’s Calling by J.K. Rowling and totally loved it! The story is about a private investigator who investigates the suicide of a celebrity. This crime thriller surely thrilled me to bits! Love Rowling's style of narration. The pace of the story is just perfect and it doesn't once lose its steam. A great read!

I finished Such Good Girls: The Journey of the Hidden Child Survivors of the Holocaust by R.D. Rosen. The book follows the lives of three different children and how they survived Holocaust. It's one of the best non-fiction books I've read in a while. I picked up Palahniuk's Beautiful You a couple of days back (something tells me I'm going to be disappointed by this one eventually :-( )

I read The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry many times.
In my judgement it is the best. The book is full of love and philanthropy.

I've recently read Battlefield 3 The Russian by Andy McNab. It's a book about espionage and war. The book was based on a game also called Battlefield 3.

I love reading books; the last book I had read is called Final of a saga of 5 books that are: Hush Hush (The name of the saga) Crescendo, Silence, Finale and Kiss Me Deadly. The book is of Becca Fitzpatrick.
It’s explained by Nora Grey, a student of secondary in Coldwater, Mine. It goes about the love of Nora and Patch Cipriano; Patch is a Fallen Angel and Nora is a Nephilim, a Fallen Angel is an Angel that for an obscure reason has lost his wings and a Nephilim is the union of a human and a Fallen Angel. Although Nora is now a Nephilim she isn’t a pure one, but when a pure Nephilim has poured his blood in her veins he turned in a pure one. In the book is going to start a war between Fallen Angels and Nephilim because every Jeshvan the Fallen Angels can enter in Nephilim bodies and they do everything they want because the Fallen Angels haven’t got outside feelings only sentiments. Nora Grey is the key for all that because she has turned the leader of the Nephilim.

The Art of Loving by Erich Fromm
In his classic work, The Art of Loving, social philosopher Erich Fromm explores love in all its aspects—not only romantic love, steeped in false conceptions and lofty expectations, but also brotherly love, self-love, the love of God, and the love of parents for their children.
