    My sentiments exactly.

    My friend is against religion to the point where she even writes messages in Bibles that you get in your hotel room, about how they shouldn't force such an evil thing down our throats.

    If you don't want to read the Bible - then don't read it! The hotel aren't making you read it. They're just put there by a separate organisation because this is a Christian country at the end of the day.

        I don't believe in God but I like to read books about religion (whether it's for or against religion) purely because I think it's an interesting topic. It's the same reason why I studied Religion & Philosophy at A-Level.

        And I generally like reading non-fiction books anyway.

        Now that I definitely wouldn't do. That's well rude!

                          • Just read "The Seance" by John Harwood and now I'm reading "Beyond Black" by Hilary Mantel. They're both quite gothic novels so people think I'm going over to the dark side or something

                                  • About a month ago, I finished reading:

                                    Probably one of the most distinctive novels I've ever read. It plays out like a profound hip hop record. The plot it extremely fast paced, a bit farfetched in places, but seriously unpretentious. Lead character Winter is an interesting type. Rich, vain and oversexed. She's not particularly likeable to the average reader, but her quick wit and business acumen are extremely sharp, when a huge turn in fortunes seems to have ruined her family.

                                    Just finshed reading this one:

                                    Jhumpa Lahiri is definitely one the top Overseas Indian writers out there. I was enchanted by her first collection of short stories back 2000, and then her novel The Namesake. This one again displays the sheer depth of her talent. Even the simplest of stories are written like epics. Bengali-Indian immigrants and their American-born children are presented with sheer authenticity (Lahiri being Bengali herself!) and conviction by the writer. Most of these characters seem to live fairly happy lives, but personal exploration reveals far greater upheavels they face.

                                    Best stories of the book are Hell-Heaven, Only Goodness and the last three stories (a trilogy of interlinked stories about two characters called Hema and Kaushik).

                                        • I first bought this in 2006, but I could never really engage with it. My level of reading comprehension hadn't fully matured at that point I suppose. It's funny, ever since I graduated from uni I've suddenly managed to read things I'd have stuggled to keep pace of before.

                                          So far it seems pretty good.

                                            I'm thinking of reading the whole series but isn't 500+ pages a book, too long?!

                                              • I am currently reading The Great Gatsby by F.Scott Fitzgerald.

                                                So far, this year, I've also read the following:
                                                'The Catcher In The Rye' by J.D.Salinger
                                                'The Midnight Club' by Christopher Pike
                                                'Lord Of The Flies' by William Golding
                                                'The Collector' by John Fowles.

                                                • Counting them all up in my head I'd say I've ready about 25 or so books this year.

                                                  Of these, the stand out reads were:

                                                  Jodie Picoult - The Pact
                                                  Malorie Blackman - Noughts & Crosses*
                                                  Nick Hornby - Slam

                                                  All would be all-time favourites!

                                                  *Currently reading, though,


                                                  Fourth in the Noughts and Crosses series.

                                                  I heart these books.

                                                              It's collections of stories of how people overcome conditions and how the brain adapts if cells die or in the first case a woman who's sense of balance was destroyed. Meaning she constantly felt like her body was freefalling, she couldn't focus with her eyes or walk. Then with a machine and using the path to the brain via her tongue, her balance was restored & she can live normally. Amazing.
