I finally got a copy of FIVE GREAT DIALOGUES
and began to read Republic by Plato
...wow I am so happy that I found it in a used bookstore it has these five books in one Apology Crito Phaedo Symposium Republic.f I picked it up for five dollars....practically nothing, I wish someone had told me to read Plato when I was younger! It is a really great book
, with some really big
I personally love philosophy....Plato was a great! And followed by so many, with his insightful thinking.
For more easy reading....I suggest books meant for teens, at least when you are (at first) learning. They keep wording sort of simple and the stories are fun to read. For instance the The Narnia Cronicles
by C.S. Lewis ...because the English is easier to get if you start with these. Also books by Madeline L'Engle like A Wrinkle in Time
. I used to read Nancy Drew Mysteries
when I was a child. These are fun too.
If those are too childish for your tastes try books about movies you have seen because that will help you get through them, like Girl With a Pearl Earring
(very good book) or watch the movie (if there is one ) when you get a book...because knowing about the movie will help with reading the book.
As for my current reading list:
Yesterday I almost bought Pride and Predjudice
but some other books won out
...The Lovely Bones
, by Alice Sebold, Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress
, by Dai Sijie....Before You Know Kindness
by Chris Bohjalian and Wild Animus
by Rich Shapiro...
