Picked up "The Swinger" and "The Story of Sushi" before the flight. Started the former and I like it a bunch.

Read a great novel ''Mud City'' from the writer Deborah Ellis. Very very good book, short one but good!

Ah, sorry, didn't mean to be obnoxious. I was just surprised when I looked it up on Amazon and it was recommended for ages 10 and up. Good luck with your efforts to improve your English!

No problem at all :) It's a easy book to read so I could imagine it's for kids yes. But the story was something else, got me to think little!

Embarrassingly I still own 200+ unread books. I need to get to business.

Decided to hold off on The Honourable Schoolboy for a bit. May start the Guns of August after the above.

Finally started The Honourable Schoolboy. Great read so far. I think it may be better than Tinker Tailor. I think

Just finished the "Fear Index" which is a great book. Also read the "Silent Oligarch."

Venice- Jan Morris. Probably the best book ever written on the city. Can't believe I haven't read it before. Don't want it to end. Wonderful prose.
13, rue Thérèse - Elena Shapiro.

Currently reading The Tiger by John Vailiant (http://www.amazon.com/The-Tiger-Vengeance-Survival-Borzoi/dp/0307268934).

 

Really solid reading. Provides a lot of insight into Russian history, culture and psyche.

Has good reviews on Amazon.com.

Reading As I Lay Dying, and then lots of Shelley (Percy) this week for my Romantics Class.
Just finished with Manfred/Childe Harold/Don Juan and have to say that Byron blew the top off what I thought about the Romantics (albeit the late romantics) I expected to HATE it, and was pleasantly surprised.
