          • Leonard Cohen - Favourite Game. Good book, it really moved me. He's also a musician Leonard Cohen, althow I never listened to any of his albums. Maybe I'll try them.
            Next in line: Doctor Jivago.

                • I just started to read books in english. It's hard. I wonder if any non english-american-australians etc. from here read books in english. How did you started? What was the most difficult? To me it's torture but I still want to do it.

                      • playeru: It may feel difficult at first, but don't give up. Just read read read.

                        If you don't understand something, skip that part, and continue reading. It doesn't matter if you don't understand all the details. Try to read for the overall plot instead.

                        EDIT: What I just said is a good advice if you're reading just for pleasure. But if you want to analyze literature, you should pay attention to the details as well and check all the difficult words from the dictionary. It's a lot of hard work, but very rewarding after you've finished the book.

                                  Mine was Jane Austen's Sense and sensibility, a rather boring book and also not a very easy one to read with all those old disused words in it. I had a dictionary by my side at first, but I rarely need it now.

                                  Reading in english helps you A LOT with the language. My concern now is how to include new words (or even words I understand but don't use often) in my own vocabulary. Because understanding english is one thing and using it is another.

                                  Keep reading, it will only do you good. I believe mystery novels are the easiest ones to comprehend, but my advice would be that you pick books that interest you a lot.

                                    • Glass Houses (Morganville Vampires, Book 1) by Rachel Caine.

                                      It's her new series, and it's pretty good. I'll probably have to read it again after I finish it though, as I sped through it because I was too excited.

                                          • I've literally just started reading "A Brief History of Drugs: From the Stone Age to the Stoned Age" by Antonio Escohotado. When I'm done with that, I'm gonna move onto this book called "From Chocolate to Morphine: Everything You Need To Know About Mind-Altering Drugs".

                                            Just a little background reading for my phytopharmacology course, I swear.

                                                    Absolutely outstanding. I wouldn't recommend it if you're squeamish, mind.
