Now I'm reading "A Good Yarn" by Debbie Macomber, which is the story about the woman opend a new yarn shop and knitting class then three women joined the knitting class. I have already read the former book "The Shop on Blossom Street" which was written before "A Good Yarn".
At first I wasn't interested in these books but "The New York Times bestselling author" or comments to these books on web made me purchased.
I want to read these novels, especially women.

The last two books I read are L'església del Mar by Ildefonso Falcones and Hemingway's The Old Man and the Sea. Right now I'm reading Gabriel Garcia Márquez's Cien Años de Soledad. I started reading it because of the good critics I have always heard about it, but the truth is I'm really bored with the book. Has anyone here read it?

I have. I can't remember wether it was boring or not for me... but I definitely remember the book - that means the book really worth reading. It's just classics you can't evade...

That's one of the main reasons why I am reading the book, it's a classic. I am aware of my "cultural void" and I want to fix it. I do like the book, but sometimes it's a little... blah! But one thing I am sure of is that I want to finish it.

At first it was since it's been hard for me to remember and concentrate on anything lately. Can you believe I went around trying to figure out where my pen was when I just put it in my pocket like fiver minutes before? That's why I needed to practice my lazy brain again. And reading several books at a time has helped me. I have to remember where the last part I left off earlier and what it was about.

I had heard a lot about Ernest Hemingway’s works but never read something by this author. So I went to the library and intended to get a book called For Whom the Bell Tolls. It turned out that book is pretty thick, so I grabbed another book by the same author called The Garden of Eden. I guess I shouldn’t have done it. I didn’t like it at all :? . Perhaps one of the reasons is that this novel is incomplete. I probably should’ve read The Old Man and the Sea instead of this one.

I read The Old Man and the Sea two weeks ago. Pretty ... boring? Maybe I'm not good enough for the book :D Anyway I have For Whom the Bell Tolls, too; haven't read it yet.

BTW I saw your wedding pictures. You both look great, congratulations! ;)

talking about Hemingway... I loved "Fiesta, and the Sun also rises"

by the way Dixie, not only LennyeTran is reading several books at a time. 5 volumes are really brain-training :) but I prefer just two - one for each language I know

I haven't found any good Vietnamese books to read lately. If I could, I wouldn't mind to read books in both English and Vietnamese as well. It's a nice challenge and interesting to see how languages can come across. Right now, I can only try to read French books that are suitable for 2-5 years old kids along with my other three English books. My French sucks big time that it's too embarrassing to tell what are the two French books I'm reading. :oops:

Sometimes books for kids are enough specific and it's pretty hard to read them, I suppose. I haven't known you're learning French. this is a challenge itself. Right away I can't even think of learning another foreign language. I guess the older I am the more complicated it is to take up new language :cry:

Before and up til now I could guess the meanings of some French words since some of them are true or semi-true cognates compared to English. For the false cognates, I only need learn about their definitions and not the spelling. I think it's the same thing for other Romance languages as well. I believe you can be able to learn them since you have English as a foundation. The hard part is the speaking and writing. I suck at speaking French the most. Gosh, my accent is a pain from the behind. :cry:

I'm reading now Marcel Proust "On Swann's way", this one is one of the most striking authors I have read by now. The language is very close to Russian classics I guess, what I call classics of course :lol: I must confess today I had tears in my eyes while reading - the thing that happens so rare this time :(

I remember a guy who answered the post above, but what on earth - his post has disappeared :lol: doesn't matter... this time I'm sunbathing and reading much, it was Stevenson In the South Seas and James Ellroy L.A. Confidential The last one mentioned consists of 725 pages, read in 3 days. I guess he's on the best detective story writer. The plot is tough, rough, but I've learnt one thing - there is nobody absolutely good or bad, it contradicts with my maximalism anyway :? :lol:

Самиздат?? :lol: I'm so sorry my english speaking friends :oops:

by the way I have come across several books after outstanding classical writers like Stendhal and Stivenson (told about it before), in those samples their travelling essays, scetches, observations and notes are gathered. Very nice reading indeed!

And also I read "If tomorrow comes" some time ago.

I finished reading When I was Puerto Rican by Puerto Rican/American author Esmeralda Santiago. The author came to America when she was 13, and in this book she reveals her memories of living in Puerto Rico and then in New York.
I first learned about Santiago from my Spanish textbook. From the article there, I got an impression that she is a great Latina author, so when I came across this book, I got very excited. However, I was kind of disappointed by the author revealing the “naked moments” of her life. What I liked about the book, nevertheless, was that even though she wrote it in English, she used a lot of Spanish words. I think it made her writing more vivid especially when she described life in Puerto Rico.

The latest book I read was "Sea-wolf" by Jack London and I'm disappointed. I didn't want Jack London to be that romantic when I was picking up a book with such a title... you know I expected rough story about sailing, harsh days on the board of the ship, fur seal hunting, maybe some battles, but then a woman ( :evil: ) climbed the rope and caught the narrator's eye...
I have heard about Patrick O'Brian - an English novelist. I wonder if there any women characters in his novels :lol: I want to read a nice sample about adventures and true men and NO WOMEN CHARACTRERS :lol:

I really like Jack London’s books; my favorite one is Martin Eden. This fall I plan to visit the place where he lived and the little cottage where he passed away.

Agree! I adore the way he writes - easy-going and fascinating, I love his short stories and "Smoke Bellew" novel, but this very moment I wanted to read something romance-excluding and made a mistake :(

I haven't read Martin Eden yet but watched a theatre play on TV and liked it a lot :wink:

Philip Roth American Pastoral

And I may say it's one of the best modern novels I have read recently

Aye, Aye! Finally I have finished reading Moby-Dick novel!!! It's lasted for 6 months! Now I'm starting Charles Dickens "David Copperfield" - a book I was beginning to read for several times and found boring. After Melville Dickens seems to be so easy-to-read and fascinating :lol:

I successfully finished Dickens and also Robert Penn Warren, I was wondering is someone have read "Vanity Fair"? I'm curious if the language is possible for such a reader as me? probably in comparison to Dickens, as I'm thinking of picking up Tekkerey next :roll: thanks in advance

Hello!
Now I am reading Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden

Memoirs of a Geisha tells the fictional story of Chiyo, a young Japanese girl, whose family, unable to support her, sell her to a geisha house in the city of Kyoto during the 1930s. A geisha is a professional female companion for men in Japan, trained in music, dancing, and the art of conversation. The geisha training is a life of virtual slavery, and Chiyo finds herself working as maid to a malevolent geisha called Hatsumomo who, jealous of Chiyo' beauty, makes her life utterly miserable. One day, as Chiyo weeps by a stream in the city, a wealthy man stops and comforts her. Chiyo, deeply moved by the man' kindness, knows that she will never forget him. Two years later, a geisha called Mameha, as kind as Hatsumomo is cruel, takes Chiyo under her wing. Chiyo, now renamed Sayuri, becomes a successful geisha, renowned for her beauty. Then one day she meets the man who had comforted her by the stream. But life does not run smoothly for Sayuri and there are powerful obstacles that prevent the two from coming together ...

And here the first chapter of this novel :D
Maybe it will be interesting for someone :D

Melek, after The Alchemist, I am trying to get all of Coelho's books. I've got a few now, and they are all amazing. So, if you get the chance, try to read any other of his books. I'm sure they won't disappoint you.

I recently read Shataram (non-fiction), which means man of peace in Hindi. It was written by Gregory David Roberts. A personal story about his own life encounters. He fled to India, after being sentenced to 13 years in prison in Australia for committing a series of armed robberies. The story predominantly revolves around his life in Bombay. There he lived in the slums, worked as a doctor for slum-dwellers, became a counterfeiter, smuggler, fell in love, addiction, and much more.

Every time I read this book, it kept me thirsty for more. Lately, I learned that it's being made into a movie with actor Johnny Depp.

The lastest book i read is "Harry Potter". Now, I am 19 years old. And I began to read "Harry Potter" in 7 years ago. It attracts me. I love the characters in the story: Harry, Hermione, Ron, Neville, Fred, Goegre.... They are so fun, brave... And I realize that:"Love is the power". Now, the story ends but I think it became part of my life... :D

Hello Vinh Truong, I read this novel already. You should read the second part. It's really romantic. It's one of my favorite books. Always believe in love, even it might just like a dream. That's what I've learnt from Levil's story.

Some time ago I read "Dubliners" after James Joyce. It impressed me loads. I remember some of you guys talking about his book and author but can't remember who in particular... :wink:

It is a marvellous edition telling about his life and the book's fate in our country, imagine a translator was sent to concentration camp for doing his job...
The book has left such a deep feeling of desolation and endless melancholy in me.

The last book I've read is " The little Prince". Like its introductrory, it's a book about children but it was written for adults because they will find themselves in every stories told by that little prince. The author Saint - Exupéry, a writer and a pilot, gave me a meaningful story, which made me burst into tears when reading the ending.

I am reading now "Of mice and men" by Steinbeck

It the compelling story of two outsiders striving to find their place in an unforgiving world.
Drifters in search of work, George and his simple-minded friend Lennie. have nothing in the world except each other and a dream - a dream that one day they will have some land of their own. Eventually they find work on a ranch in California's Salinas Valley, but their hopes are doomed as Lennie, struggling against extreme cruelty, misunderstanding and feelings of jealousy, becomes a victim of his own strength. Tackling universal themes; friendship and a shared vision, and giving voice to America's lonely and dispossessed, of Mice and men has proved one of Steinbeck's most popular works, achieving success as a novel, a Broadway play and three acclaimed films.

to tell the aouthor I found ana article about him.

Muslim world in transition: Contributions of the Gülen Movement

A conference was held in London on Oct. 25-27 to discuss contributions of the Gülen movement, led by Fethullah Gülen. This conference was launched at the House of Lords and was attended by several members of parliament, lords, baronesses, newspaper editors, academics, dignitaries and high-ranking civil servants.
The conference's main theme centered on the Gülen movement's actual and potential positive contribution to transition in the Muslim world vis-à-vis education and dialogue for a lasting peace, democracy, peaceful coexistence and human rights.
The conference proceedings book has already been published by the Leeds Metropolitan University Press and describes the movement as a leading movement in contemporary Turkey with a universal educational and interfaith agenda that aims to promote creative and constructive positions on issues such as democracy, multiculturalism, globalization and interfaith dialogue in the context of secular modernity.

As promised in the preface of the book, Gülen's re-reading of religious texts in the context of a renewal and re-interpretation of Islam that can take part in the building of a fully humane society in Europe also featured in the deliberations of the conference.

Many presenters underlined that the Gülen movement is renewing Islamic discourse and practices in tune with contemporary times without boasting that it is doing so. Many of the movement's activities in the Muslim world were elaborated on in detail from an academic perspective for the first time. Some papers argued that Gülen's understanding of Anatolian Muslimness and his tajdid (renewal) can be transferred with some contextual modifications to other parts of the Muslim world as well as to Muslims living in the West.

The conference was not without criticism. E-mails were sent to members of the editorial board asking them to call off the conference, labeling the Gülen movement an extension of the imperialist West and a project of moderate Islam fashioned by the US that seeks to destroy democracy in Turkey, etc.

Many scholars who participated in the conference commented about how they were surprised to see that the author(s) of these e-mails naively expected serious scholars to believe these groundless and unsubstantiated accusations, adding that these e-mails helped them understand Turkey more in terms of the old elite's adamant, but desperate, fight against the prospects of open society.

Many papers agreed that Gülen is a contemporary Mevlana Celaladdin Rumi. It is no coincidence that Rumi -- like Gülen -- was also misunderstood by some in his lifetime. Some reactionary conservatives in Rumi's time criticized him harshly because he was open to "the other" and accepted everyone as they were. Some even claimed that Rumi was not a Muslim at all while others claimed that he was a spy of the occupying Mongols. Some even suggested that Rumi was after political power. Looking in retrospect, it is crystal clear how odd these accusations really are.

Coming from and continuing in the same tradition, it is not surprising then that Gülen faces similar odd accusations directed at him by those who see the world from a narrow perspective. Likewise, sharing the same fate with Rumi makes Gülen a Rumi of this age.

Turkish people love fethullah gülen beause of his teachings.he is both seyyid and serif.also he is the founder of Turk collges in the world.And in his book " Infinite Light" he tells the perfect life of our prophet muhammed and his sahabes very beautifully.
