Another day… reading…

We’ve got many books we would love to read, and perhaps you’ve read some of them or all of them or wish to read them all!

Possession by A. S. Byatt is a widely spoken about book, and well it will be… since besides being a wonderful novel, it also won the 1990 Booker Prize Award. Here is the NY Times review of the book.

The lost symbol by Dan Brown. I’m very positive that you’ve heard about the guy (even if you never intend  to read his books)… you must have been recommended the DaVinci Code, Angels and demons, and perhaps you weren’t so enchanted by the Deception point. If you ❤ Dan Brown, you should be reading this book, because you will enjoy it.

We love Terry Pratchett & his discworld series. I’ll admit that we don’t have the entire series, but well, just having a few of them for your reading pleasure feels great! {We also have Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch (1990) is a World Fantasy Award nominated novel written in collaboration between Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman —– need we say more?}

Atonement by Ian McEwan, “Atonement will make you happy in at least three ways: It offers a love story, a war story and a story about stories, and so hits the heart, the guts and the brain. It’s Ian McEwan’s best novel (…..) Atonement is the work of a novelist at peak power; we may hope for more to come.” – Adam Begley, The New York Observer.

Dr. Seuss books. You’ve heard of Cat in the Hat, the cat in the hat makes a comeback, On beyond zebra, etc. and you probably enjoyed being read or reading them as a child or still enjoy them as an adult. We’re sure that you will enjoy reading them to your children, neices, nephews, etc. or even for your own reading pleasure.

The Bartimaeus Trilogy by Jonathan Stroud. This fantasy series was published as a series of three novels between 2003 and 2005. Its three novels are The Amulet of Samarkand, The Golem’s eye, and Ptolemy’s gate.

God does not play dice with the universe; He plays an ineffable game of his own devising, which might be compared, from the perspective of any of the other players, to being involved in an obscure and complex version of poker in a pitch dark room, with blank cards, for infinite stakes, with a dealer who won’t tell you the rules, and who smiles all the time.
Terry Pratchett, “Good Omens”
