My Fav Book is 'Einstein's Theory Of Relativity by Max Born', it really helped me get the fundamental pieces of the puzzle down and has since led me to try to learn more on the subject.

I know this because I have seen the movie with Gregory Peck.

I must read this book
Oh, I know it! I read it, just I couldn't get that, because the italian title is very different. It sounds like "The darkness beyond the bush".
It's really a wonderful book. And the movie with Peck is absolutely great!

I've been reading Betty Smith's books (A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, Joy in the Morning), and they are amazing. She seems to have a simple and pure writing style that really captures the characters.

Anyone else read her stuff?

Oh yes, dandy, that's exactly what I do on a regular basis. 'P&P' is definitely one of my all time favourites. Even BEFORE I watched the serial with Colin Firth
Besides, I can always read anything by Ben Elton, David Lodge or Roddy Doyle. And Terry Pratchett, if I want to have fun. I keep re-reading him too, and there's a lot to read!

I've just bought American Psycho by Bret Easton Ellis and Thinks... by David Lodge.
Anyone read that ?

mmm roddy doyle. i agree. fun, fun reads.

my picks:
anything by christopher moore. witty, clever, laugh out loud funny. my favorite is lamb: the gospel according to biff, christ's childhood pal.
anything by david sedaris. (i especially like holidays on ice and me talk pretty one day)
lullaby - chuck palahniuk
life of pi - yann martel (this took me three months to get through it... i don't know why, but it was worth it.)
a graveyard for lunatics - ray bradbury
catcher in the rye - j.d. salinger

peace, love & badlemon,
toni

...is the acropolis crumbling?

I just finished "Courier sud" by de Saint-Exupery. I read it in French. There's a phrase in the novel that says: "Reve tout haut". It means "Dream out loud". Nice, isn't it?
