To my shame I'm not reading... I'm writing a diploma and just can't see any typed text, I listen to child's books before going to sleep these days - The wind in the willows - I was deprived of such a book in my childhood, not it's a true pleasure to be listening to the stories of The Mole and Toad and Water Rat...

Cypress, how's the baby? :-D

Now reading Hunger by Knut Hamsun



Martin Eden is one of my favorite books.
I haven't read Hunger, but I've read Fruits of the Earth by Hamsun. I liked it.


I will read 'Fruits of the Earth" (Growth of the Soil) after completing Hunger:)

He is fine; keeps me busy. Thank you for asking.
I'm not reading anything now either. In fact, I'm not doing many things I used to do. On the other hand, I am doing many new things that I had never done before... and I really enjoy it {-;

Melek, what got you interested in Hamsun?

I just finished reading the Twilight series. I liked it but not as much as I like the Harry Potter series. Maybe because they hyped it so much.

But I enjoyed it since I love reading about vampires.

I just finished reading (again) A Time to Kill by John Grisham. I consider this one of the most powerful novels out there. I'm a big fan of John Grisham and this is the first book by him that I read. I remember when I first started reading it how amazed I was at how he tells the story. I was hooked after reading the first page.

I just finished reading "The Transition Game". It's a book about the Hoosiers which is basically Indiana basketball. I've always had this fascination about how big basketball is in Indiana. It's a good book on how basketball there transitioned from traditional to hip hop era.

I just finished reading the book "Deception Point" by Dan Brown and I'm a little bit disappointed. It's not as good as Angels and Demons and Da Vinci code. Maybe that's why I'm disappointed. I kept comparing it to the two books. I can't help myself though. :)

This book disappointed me as well. I had read the other 3 when I read Deception Point, and it was really boring. I didn't enjoy it as much as the others.

Anyway I have just finished reading Stieg Larsson's The Girl Who Played With Fire, the second novel of his Millennium trilogy. I'm getting the third one today and will start reading right away!

Yeah. What's the title of the other one? I didn't like it because it basically had the same formula as the Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons but it wasn't that gripping compared to the two.

I also like reading books about famous people especially athletes and rappers. It's very inspiring. :)

Well, I was sick so I had a lot of time in my hands to read a book. I finished Digital Fortress after a while and I was still disappointed. Oh well. :)

I read The Host which was written by Stephenie Meyer. I like it very much.
