My preferred book by Umberto Eco is 'Baudolino' and the one I read painfully although I love the Pacific ocean is 'The island of the day before'. I probably missed the plot completely...

As well as the genres I mentioned in my earlier post I also love reading travel and nature books and also collections of short stories.

Yup sometimes......!!
@lissa you should at least introduce yourself. Check the Doorbell section. :rolleyes:

Have you heard of Sylvain Tesson? I don't know if his books are available in English, but he's great. Exactly in that space. A world traveller and adventurer with some real language skills that may not translate well, unless the translator is skilled too!

This might get you started!

Now that we got what we wanted, I posted my favorite fiction book in the new section. We live in exciting times. It's 8 AM, I need to wait until the neighbors leave for work and school before the morning practice session.

I like to read at bedtime. Helps me to switch off from the daily grind of working in IT with all the utter madness that entails. I read IT papers and endless pages on websites all day long trying to figure out some new tech, so I want something fictional for entertainment. I want to be grabbed but not 'disturbed'. I recently started reading Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale but find it a bit too disturbing for just before sleep.

The 15 Lives of Harry August was a good recent read.

I like to read before I go to sleep too. Very helpful in relaxation.

I know what you mean. Dystopia seems a little close to home these days! Oryx and Crake was another Margaret Atwood novel I....well, I was going to say enjoyed...maybe appreciated is a better word!

I don't own a TV or have Netflix. I prefer to read instead. I get through about 3-4 books a week. English language novels and thrillers mostly. I usually borrow them from my local library or via the collective E-book library.

It always amazes me that I read so many surprisingly good books by - to me - 'unknown authors'..If there's a book sub-forum, I might post a few of the ones I enjoyed most..
