I've heard the Alchemist is very good.

I'm reading a lot of books, but most recently was building a contagious church by Mark Mittelberg

I'm rereading Lisa Shearin's books because the fourth one came out some time ago and I don't remember what happened in the third one. lol

Also read "The Red Pyramid" recently. Gotta love Rick Riordan.

Mmmmm, Shakespeare. I'm taking a whole class on him this semester. With a scary professor though...so...lol I still love Shakespeare though.

Anyone read Lisa Shearin's Raine Benares series? The fourth one came out back in April but I haven't been able to get it yet, so I'm rereading the first three to refresh my memory.

Yeah,I've studied too at highschool,but never read it before a whole tragedy (except for Macbeth)...so I have to do it...at least the most known.However,there's such a big difference between studying for school and reading for yourself...It's another world.

guys...hv u read 'conversation with GOD'  by neale donald walsch????
Title: Re: what's book that u're reading now or recently?
Post by: Imalshen on August 14, 2010, 01:46:44 AM
I've not read Conversations. What's it about?

And I know what you mean about reading stuff outside school, Marco. I am reading Moby Dick on my own, and it gets me weird looks but I love it. I can just enjoy it for the masterpiece it is and not have to worry about taking tests.

Though I've still got a year of college to get through and may wind up reading it again for class. lol!!!

I'm in the middle of two massive fantasy series (the wheel of time and a song of ice and fire) and it takes so darn long for the next book to come out  :( it's so frustrating.
anyway, I was reading about a song of ice and fire today to sort of get my fix for the moment.

Oh and btw, I live in the same city the author of The Wheel of Time "Robert Jordan" did before his life was tragically cut short (and not just tragic because he didnt finish the series [and it will still be finished acording to his notes and preparations])

Well,in that case you'll have a knowledge of the whole (whale??? ;D) thing,that shouldn't be bad,I suppose.However,I also started reading Moby Dick some time ago,but I'm stuck at the Cetology chapter.Some parts are a bit heavy,but it's a great book,I'll have to go on with it.
So you're studying English and American literature?

Specifically I'm studying Professional Writing, but as it's part of the English department I'm required to take several advanced lit courses as well. Currently I'm going to be taking Shakespeare, and so I am thinking I should add an American lit course to balance the other Brit lit ones I'm planning for next semester.

if its not a novel,not a biography,what do you call it?text book??
its about what the author thinks about GOD....how he see's the world with different perspective.hmmm.....i try to remember what may poeple call him....NEW AGE i guess???its a spiritual book.and its great,i agree with him totally(at least until now ),though its the opposite of my religion thought me.it just,i always hv interests with this thing. i hv so many questions about the world and mostly about GOD....i want to understand.not wondering but purely understand.....

Interesting...G-d is an interesting topic but I don't think I'm technically supposed to go into those analogies on this forum. I'll have to snoop about that book sometime.

But OMG on a totally unrelated note-have I mentioned Lisa Shearin's Raine Benares books? The most recent one came out several months ago but I have been rereading the series for a reminder. I just started the new one today. Not only is Shearin's writing hilarious and exciting, she has just gone to "scary as hell" in the new book. I can not wait to finish this one!

Apparently "Conversations With God" also touches on the topic of Indigo Children, which I mentioned the other day on a thread about LITW. Interesting.

Well, I don't think it's  :o EXTREMELY :o odd that a forum for Shyamalan fans to discuss his movies would have more than one reference to New Age ideas, lol.

Mr.M movies is all about spiritual things,its about what is inside,more than meets the eye (is it the right word?)

Yeah, that would fit the new age beliefs. I got a book called "God, Time and Stephen Hawking" but I havent really gotten into it yet. I read his "A Brief History of Time" which was very interesting.
Title: Re: what's book that u're reading now or recently?
Post by: shinchan on September 16, 2010, 05:52:47 AM
yups that right.i never heard that one ("God, Time and Stephen Hawking")i'd better start to look for it.and i hv read "A Brief History of Time" also,its a good physics book for common poeple like me.so this "God,time and stephen hawking" book,is it written by himself or someone else?and when is it first published?
