Do you read books ?

Yes, they are now my second best friends....first being IF of course....LOL

Some of my favs:

'The Prophet ' by Khalid Gibran

The Far Pavillions - M.M Kaye

If tomorrow comes - Sidney Sheldon

The Bourne Identity - Robert Ludlum

Doctors - Eric Seghal

The Exodus and Mila 18 - Leon uris

Anthem and The Fountainhead - Ann Ryand

Did any book change your life?

Yes, Khalid Gibran's 'The Prophet'. It made me a better, and a more mature person, and it actually helped me raise myself above some of the everyday petty problems that every relationship faces. Not all, but some definitely.

Did any book save you from problems?

 Howard Roarke, of the Fountainhead by Ann Ryand, helped me solve the identity crisis in my life.......that book taught me that being yourself and being proud of  what you are is your greatest identity.

Did any book help you in removing your confusions or did it add much more confusion?

Not really.......some of the books have made me more introspective though. They can also give out mixed messages. However I have also been greatly impressed by the relationships portrayed in all the Robert Ludlums books. That man placed so much stress on loyalty, and trust between friends and family..........that it helped me see a lot of strength in togetherness of a family.

or Do you say we read books but we don't take the content seriously?

yes, that actually happens with most of the books. Preachy books can actually turn you off. Thrillers are good while they last. Da Vinci code was a surprise, but it was more interesting because it gave a different twist to a religion and gave us a more broader perspective......for me, Da Vinci code had a very tame end...

'The Sinner' by Madeline Hunter. That was one sick book!! The romance and the details in that book was so nice, I loved it. I didn't belive in love as much, but after reading that book I realized that a woman/ girl can't live without love.

What better a friend can one find than a book? That too a book that educates, englightens, and opens up a new window to the world. At least you go on a ride to remember and not taken for a ride to rundown.

I had missed a lot of them. Remember their authors partially or remember the names partially.

But if you are a fan of beautiful writing, kindly do not miss Ron Rash and "Saints at the River"

Rgds,

All the time in the world..... i just finished it 3 days ago and still i didnt get over it. The first book that didnt just touch my heart.... but dominated it. I have never really gotten so much affected by any book ever.... but this one is the first that made me literally cry continuously. VERY MOTIVATING!

Book Description

Twenty years old, drop dead gorgeous, and headed for the fast track, Nicki McBain is poised to begin a high-powered law career when she hears the devastating news. Her future will be measured not in years, but in months. Nicki makes a decision: in the time she has left, she is determined to live. Accompanied by friends, Nicki embarcks on a last-fling cruise to the Greek Islands--she wants to fill her days with as much beauty and pleasure as she can. But when she meets Michael Schuster, a handsome British photographer, she realizes she's found the last thing she'd ever thought she'd find--true love. Deciding to hide her illness, Nicki hopes to spare the man she loves the truth she cannot avoid. Can a life time of love be had in only a few weeks? And is love strong enough to overcome everything--even death? Nicki is about to find out....Twenty years old, smart, gorgeous and hip, college valedictorian Nicki McBain is on the fast track, poised to begin a high-powered law carreer when she hears devastating news: Her future will be measured not in years, but in months. Her body has dealt her a death sentance, but in the time she has left, Nicki has decided to live.

Hi Friends!!!

Book reading is good habit.I feel all should try to develop that habit right from childhood.This is entirely in the hands of parents.Let me suggest the books I've read:

INDIRA by Katherene Frank

The Insider By Shri P.V.Narasimha Rao

Straight from the Gut by Jack Welsch

Freedom at Midnight by Dominique and Larry Collins

Prime Ministers of India by Janardhan Thakur.

cheers,

Mythili

What an inspiring post.

So many of us who love books and share their experiences.

Enough books named to fill my reading-agenda for a couple of years to come.

And not only novels! Will learn something too!

Sadly my time of addiction to reading lays deep in my past, digging it up proves a bit difficult.

I remember a book of Suzanne Valadon, mother of painter Maurice Utrillo. An autobiographic book on her life as a painter among other impressionists in Paris. I read and reread it, several times. Such life I also wanted...

Harry Potter, also nice to share with my daughters.
Da Vinci Code, interesting, nice to read, but no impact on me
1984 - suffocating warning to us all

Mythili thanx for this post.

Regards, Maria
