I try to read a bit of Atlas Shrugged each night before I go to bed. But everytime I open it, I get disinterested. It's unfortunate really, I want to finish it...

Beckham: Both Feet on the Ground



Edit: I just realized that the question in the thread title and then in the post itself are different. I'm reading Beckham's autobiography now, but it's certainly not my favorite book. I'd suggest pick one question and stick to it or at least make your point(s) clearer.

Favorite books: The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Fever Pitch, Harry Potter series (but of course!), Le Petit Prince, The Alchemist, The Kite Runner, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, The Picture of Dorian Gray...oh I really can go on for awhile.

Political Liberalism-John Rawls, yawn fest of 350+ pages that I need to read in order to end a home test, for next Wednesday, and be highly critical about it.

College has taken out my liberty of reading books I do enjoy, but either way I'm going to recommend The Importance of Being Earnest from Oscar Wilde and anything from Edgar Allan Poe (personal favorite The Cask of Amontillado).

Cask is my favorite by Poe too and I'll definitely check out the Wilde book. I'm so taken with Dorian Gray, but I never made to read any of his other works.

I happen to be reading again one of my favorite books of all time: Catch-22.

Other favorites include: Ulysses, Extravagaria by Neruda, Narcissus & Goldmund, and To Kill A Mockingbird. I saw someone had really liked Salnger's Catcher In The Rye, that is a great read, but Nince Stories is really such a great work by him that is often overlooked.

I hope to one day read, perhaps on May 24th, in great detail about a certain match in an ancient city with a favorable outcome.

FORZA MILAN!!! SEMPRE NEL CUORE!!!

Very good book, funny with a surprise ending. My 12th grade English teacher loved this book, and I agreed with her. That wasn't influenced by the fact that I had a crush on her...

We watched the movie in class too, nice ass shot of Gwendolyn.

I'm merging the thread with an already existing thread and I hope it will continue to grow.

Currently reading "Dead Man Walking" which was made into the movie of the same name (starring Sean Penn and Susan Sarandon).

We keep signing players who are hardly making an impact in their own leagues...! And sell those that do good here.

We need to sign forwards from Spain, Midfielders from France and develop our own defenders.

What a heartbreaking book, and I've only read one third of it so far.

BTW, nice sig Orez It should be "The clubs' cemetery" though

I am a diehard fan of paulo coelho!!

i've read the alchemist in norwegian, actually spent 3 hours reading it..it was sooooo exciting that i didnt even read for my exam but had to read this. The man is a GENIUS

RIGHT NOW im reading "The Zahir" by coelho and then comes 11 minutes.
im planning on reading atleast 5 of his books before the end of July...So thought id share the fact that i've started reading books again.

btw I read "lies of silence" by Brian Moore and now i gotta write about the situation in northern ireland and my presentation is tomorrow lol..yea yea..

^omg, I loved the alchemist but i have to admit tha "the zahir" is ALOT better but yea, i thought the alchemist was exciting and you wont ever guess the end mate...SHOCKING but logical and you know, these stories he has..its just stories but the message behind the stories is what counts.

In my current book he asks a very simple question: "what is freedom?" you know..it got me seriously thinking, what the hell is freedom? is it being a loner and walking around feeling free? what isit? in order to be a free man, you cant have family or friends?

so my answer would be: (after 5 hours of serious thinking ) freedom is having the courage to act, having the courage to stand up for yourself &/or your family, having the courage to make your dreams come true. It doesnt matter how many people you have the responsibility for: so easily put: you have to have the guts to act LOL
but i LOVE LOVE LOVE his books, and just get soo lost in my own world when reading them .....damn, i sound like such a geek..

Harry Potter not interesting??? hmmm, is this is ur first HP, I would say u read all of them strting from the first cuz they are anything but boring.

Just finished 'Freakonomics' and 'Devil wears Prada'. On to 'Holy Blood and the Holy Grail'...its all a big hoax, but its an interesting read all the same.
