Everone is recommending great books that I will have to go to Boarders and spend y usual 50 or so my recommendations -
1. Anything by Nora Roberts (this is realy just mind candy - fun for vacay)
2. To Kill a Mockingbird - Haper Lee - just amazing on so many levels
3. Jane Austin - no romance novel would be around today without her

My favorite author is F. Scott Fitzgerald. I'd recommend anything by him. I'm not sure if you could find them in French, but his collected short stories make for good summertime reading, especially at bedtime. You can read one every night before you fall asleep.

Roddy Doyle's my favourite writer (after James Joyce )
He wrote great books - some title I read:
- The woman who walked into door
&
- Paddy Clarke ah ah ah
- a star named henry
- the commitments
- the van
- the snapper.
- Rory and Ita

He's definetely a great novelist. I love the way he writes and describes things.

A friend just advice me to read "Da Vinci's Code". She said it'a a great novel. Do you know it?

Your favourite novel by Joyce?

I have a great admiration for "Dubliners", especially the short story called "Evelyn". Very touching story.

My favorite book ever is To Kill a Mockingbird.

I started the first book in the His Dark Materials series, but then I broke my leg and never got back to it. Now I'm afraid to, cause I associate the book with crutches! It was interesting, but not Harry Potter-esque the way my friend told me it would be.

I love Roddy Doyle! He's great. "A Star Called Henry" is my favorite.

The Da Vinci Code is pretty good. If nothing else, Dan Brown has a good, fast paced writing style.

I just finished "A Snow in August" by Pete Hamill, which is the one of the better books I have read in a long time. "Forever", also by Hamill is good, but a little more tedious.

Someone mentioned "Girl with the Pearl Earring". Also a great book, but I thought the other books by Chevalier were better (The Virgin Blue or Falling Angels).

If it's something really light and girlie, try the "Shopaholic" books by Sophie Kinsella. They are pretty funny.

yeah, "Dubliners" is my favorite one. I love the short story "A Painful Case" and also "The Dead". And I agree with the touching "Evelyn".
We studied the whole book at school about 8 years ago.

I've just read "Dead Cat Bounce" by Damien Owens.
Has someone read it ?
It's quite fun and very easy to read.
I recommend it.

Next book is a biography of Marlon Brando. I have never read biographies before. Don't know if I'll like it. But I love Marlon Brando, so ...
