I have $50 to spend. So far I have The Book of Laughter and Forgetting by Milan Kundera.



Need more books.

Yeah, I read the Xanth series ten or eleven years ago. Not bad. Night Mare was my favourite.

I like all kinds of books. Not sci-fi so much, unless it's not TOO science-y. And not cheesey fantasy or romance or mystery. Really, though, I like everything. That's my problem.

I'm thinking about getting The Mothman Prophecies. Has anyone read it?

You've got to at least look at "Prey" by Michael Crichton. It's amazing.

Yeah, you wanna stay away from those.

A friend has recommended "Me Talk Pretty One Day" by David Sedaris and "Acquired Tastes" by Peter Mayle. Mayle is British, if that helps.

Read the Alienist.

it is amazing.

it is not about aliens.

it will give you a much greater appreciation for "The Gangs of New York..."

Sorry to sound so boring but you should read "Crime and Punishment" by Dostoevsky. Although it's not for everyone. I would also like to recommend "Lenin's Tomb". It won a Pulitzer Prize.
I kinda only read Russian/Soviet literature and tons of History and Biography stuff. It's ok, you can

Yes! I loved that book. Though I didn't like Angel of Darkness as much.

I read C&P several years ago. I don't think I've read Lenin's Tomb. It sounds familiar, though. Maybe I own it....?

If you want a really easy read, read Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli, its an amazing book and it only took me like an hour to read, its about 200 pages long. Another good one that I'm reading right now is Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson.

Enjoy!
