Interview with the vampire - Anne Rice

I would strongly recommend this to anyone, it is really good.

Also 'Guerrilla Warfare' - Che Guevara is an interesting read.

My all time favourite though is 'A Million Little Pieces' by James Frey. It is about the author's earlier years through rehab and is so good.

Currently reading : "The First Counsel" by Brad Meltzer

Pretty good political thriller and my first experience with this particular author.

Just finished reading : "I don't Have Enough Faith to Be An Atheist" by Norman Giesler and Frank Turek which I recommend to both believers and non-believers; it's one very though provoking read.

Next up: "Odd Thomas" by Dean Koontz.

"Long Way Down" by Ewan McGregor and Charly Boorman. Before that I read "Long Way Round" by the same.

These guys take their motorbikes and travel around the entire globe no matter the terrain or the circumstances.

Recommended to anyone interested in strength, adventure, beauty.

I just finished reading a book called "My Mama's Waltz" by Eleanor Agnew and Sharon Robideaux. It's a book specifically for daughters of alcoholic mothers.

I've never been a 'self-help' book kind of person but a friend lent it to me and after skimming a few of the subtitles found it very interesting.

I recommend it to anyone in this situation...pretty easy read and without all the "you must do this..." "seek therapy...." nonsense that usually turns me off of these types of books. It opened my eyes to a lot of things that I've never been able to figure out.

Guns, Germs & Steel-
Jared Diamond.

I have read his book 5 times. The first time was about 10 years ago. I highly recommend it for those who want to learn about people and society.

A Thousand Plateaus: Capitalism and Schizophrenia by Gilles Deleuze and Felx Guattari, translated by Brian Massumi. This is a dense philosophy book and not a work of fiction, but it is what I'm currently reading.

The Final Theory by Mark Mccutcheon

www.thefinaltheory.com...

About gravity, expansion theory, it links all physic theories into one ball, its quiet good for 2nd chapter I'm upto



Our current body of scientific knowledge, known as Standard Theory, is a patchwork of ideas handed down from a much simpler time. These ideas have survived, not because they give us a deep understanding of our world, but because they at least give us reasonable, functional models. But we have now moved beyond the point where mere models are enough -- we want answers and understanding. The Final Theory now has these answers -- for the first time in human history. It is the embodiment of a famous theory, known as the Theory Of Everything, sometimes referred to as the Unified Field Theory, which has been sought for centuries but has eluded all efforts until now. Finally we have true scientific explanations for everything, and not just simplistic working models

Jerry Baker's "Fast, Easy Vegetable Garden"

There's a lot of good advice in here, though the guy seems to think fish emulsion is the greatest thing on Earth.

I have just completed Tilly True by Dilly Court.

Here is a quick summary.




Dismissed from her position as housemaid under a cloud of misunderstanding, Tilly True is forced to return home.

But Tilly is determined to make something of her life and rather than admit the truth to her poverty-stricken family she sets out once more in search of employment.

Her journey takes her to the London law courts, a grim parsonage in one of the most notorious parts of the East End and a house of ill-repute.

But when she falls for the dangerous charms of Barnaby Palgrave, Tilly soon finds that her troubles have only just begun ...

It is really good... Good old London.
