So two days ago I wrote about how all my books were heavy-going and my lost passion for reading. I then proceeded to my amazon.co.uk basket… I typed in some of my favourite authors [the most influential from my teens] and I bought 9 books.
“No possession can surpass, or even equal, a good library to the lover of books.” — J. A. Langford
– Dusk [Kenneth Oppel]
- Prequel to my favourite trilogy
– Fire-Bringer [David Clement-Davies]
- He wrote a duet/sequel that became my bible
– Wolf Girl [Theresa Tomlinson]
- Another duet taught me values about family, strength, love, resilience etc.
– Promise of the Wolves [Dorothy Hearst]
- It was has “wolves” in the title =P
– The Last Samurai [Helen Dewitt]
- Sounded interesting
– Fight Club [Chuck Palahniuk]
- Love the movie for its values
And three non-fiction:
– Life After College [Jenny Blake]
– Nonviolent Communication: a Language of Life [Marshall B. Rosenberg]
– The One Minute Millionaire: The Enlightened Way to Wealth [Mark Victor Hansen]
As they’ve yet to arrive and my exams are looming; I also got some revision books out of the library, and found some story-type among them:
* Neurostransmitters & Drugs
* The Biology of Anxiety
* The Hands-on Guide to Clinical Pharmacology
* For People who Panic
* The Diving-Bell & the Butterfly
* Committed to the Sane Asylum
* Prozac Nation
So, the three books I’m currently reading are: Prozac Nation, Buddhism: plain and simple & Bushido: the Way of the Samurai.
I’m aiming to finish one of those by Saturday night at the latest. We’ll have to see.
