Still reading Three Years in Tibet by Ekai Kawaguchi. It's on my tablet and I don't use it often so it's probably going to take me 3 years to finish it.

Well, since my last post I've received and finished The Perks of Being a Wallflower.
I managed to finish it within one sitting which says a lot about what I thought of it.
I felt like I could relate to Charlie (the main character) while feeling like he was a completely different person.
I wasn't a fan of the ending but the rest of the book made up for that, I guess.
Anyhow; I'm still pretty glad that I read it and I'll watch the movie at the weekend.

I'm not really sure what book to get next which is a frequent problem of mine.
If anyone has any suggestions or recommendations - I'd appreciate it.

I am reading the Dreamer, by Pam Munoz Ryan for my literature class. It's interesting, because it was meant for children, but our professor says it opens our minds and creativity.

Yesterday I finished reading The Decline and Fall of Practically Everybody. My mother told me to read it and I was rather expecting some boring, history text book and not the relatively-uninformative book of sarcasm that it was. So that was a pleasant surprise.

I bought and read cover to cover to cover volume one of Saga. It's one of the best comics I've ever read. It's a fantasy-space opera following the story of Marko and Alana, a couple who were once on opposite sides of a galactic war. This has made them, and their newborn daughter, a target for both sides. I was impressed by the fact that I ended up rooting for not only Marko and Alana, but also the two main people who were sent to kill them, as each has a real motivation that makes you want to see them succeed. It's also beautifully drawn and coloured. If you're comfortable with a lot of sex, strong language, and violence, Saga is an essential read for comic fans.

Finished The Art of War by Sun Tzu just a few hours ago. I thought it wouldn't be very interesting at first, but, surprisingly, I devoured it.

You are now ready to read Three Kingdoms by Luo Guanzhong.

My all time favorite novel.

I'm reading Farewell, My Lovely by Raymond Chandler. It's a superb bit of hardboiled noir. The one I'm reading is a very nice 1988 edition.

Just started reading Saving Fish from Drowning by Amy Tan.

It seems very interesting from the start, and I enjoyed The Kitchen God's Wife.
