    Physical or digital?

    I tried digital and I just went back to the physical books. I like holding the books and flipping the pages. I also love the smell of books. XD I am also tying to fill the bookshelf.

    Book or movie first?

    I prefer reading the book first. There is sooo much that the book tells that the movie doesn’t. If it’s a book I really enjoy, I can pretty much picture the scenes in my head anyways. XD

    Book or movie first?

    Theres many movies that have been made based on novels. I prefer to read the book first before watching the movie so that I can visualize what it would look like without the movie telling me how it should be.

    Series or single novel?

    Some people prefer to read a single book and be done other love a continuous story. Are u a book series person or a single novel person?

    Worst book

    Ive attempted to read The Scarlet Letter many times and each time it ends up being put away to be forgotten. The language used makes it hard to read and very frustrating to understand. What is the worst book you've ever read or attempted to read? What made it so unpleasant or unreadable?

    I’m currently rereading The Shack. If you like christian books, you should really read this book. There is also a movie for it but I’d definitely read the book first if you’re interested in it. I really liked the book just because of how well they told the story. I’d love to actually meet God in real life.

    The best book

    To me the best book is A Walk To Remember. There are so many that I love but A Walk To Remember is a book that I make time for every year. I make it a point to read that book once a year. It's so similar yet so different from the movie.

    I'm not reading anything at the moment sadly. I used to reads books upon books. I would read at least one a day. I got into a relationship a couple of years ago though and that all changed. lol I was way too busy to read. But I would love to start reading again. There are so many books on my book shelf that I haven't read yet.
  11. Well, I'm not currently reading it because I recently finished it. And I don't think I'll be posting tons of book reviews here, because for that I guess I use Goodreads.com. So... I suspect you guys would enjoy A Foodie's Guide to Capitalism: Understanding the Political Economy of What We Eat by Eric Holt-Gimenez.

    The best book

    Why is the bible the best book, especially the Old Testament? I don't want to sidetrack the topic, but for me, it's a horrible book filled with horrific and gruesome mass murders, homophobia, misogyny, and so on.

    I am a teacher at a community college. I teach Nepali language and literature and pedagogy. As a teacher, I do a lot of reading. I read books on the subjects I teach. However, I also read other books. Currently, I am reading Japanese haiku translated into English. haiku is Japanese style poetry that has 17 syllables and is basically about nature.
  14. I am reading We're Watching You. It is a UK novel that involves a missing woman. A woman who has a difficult past, and a woman who heard about her plans for the evening. It is a mystery thriller sort of novel. I like it, but it has too many characters in it. More characters than it needs.

    Look like a book I’ll add to my list to read 🤔 I don’t know if I will be able to read something like that... torture baby’s to death doesn’t sounds like a relaxing story 😔 Yeap... academics books are no my kind of books 😋

    The best book

    I love that saga so much that I just watch the first movie because I felt that was so different... happen the same when I read the hunger games.

    The best book

    For me i think that the best book that I've read is 'men are form mars, women are from Venus'. I was able to understand my partner more because of that book. It was really very informative. It tells me things that I really don't understand about men.

    Right now, I am re-reading the fault in our stars. I really like to re-read books that I like. Especially those that I can relate with. I think that the main character in this book is just like me. I like watching people and I am always happy socializing.

    I enjoy reading. I try to read one book a week at a minimum. Sometimes it's possible, sometimes it's not.This month on my list are four books. Tribe of Mentors by Tim Ferris, Braving the Wilderness by Brene Brown, The Hollywood Commandments by Devon Franklin and The Presidents Keepers by Jacques Pauw. I'm currently reading nos 2 on my list Braving the Wilderness. I like Brene's advise but for some reason I'm finding it really hard to read this book, so I'm practically skimming. Maybe because it's nothing new, It's similar to her previous works and I don't really like books that are based on Research studies, too academic for my taste!

    The best book

    For me, the best book that I've read so far was the Divergent trilogy. Every scene were very detailed compares to the movie. All are loaded with actions and lets you have a clearer imagination in mind. Everything were so on point and the plot was great.

    I am currently reading Mine by Robert McCammon. It is a mystery thriller book in which the main character was a woman who was once a victim of violence. She steals babies and torture them to death. It was really cringy and makes you wish that someone like her doesn't really exist.

    I am currently reading one of Kate Wilhelm's psychological fictions. It's entitled The Deepest Water. This book is about the murder case of a well-known author. The characters were carefully crafted. The plots are really captivating. It's full of irresistable puzzles which capture the readers until the further pages of the book.

    According to Sitchins Earth Chronicle Books and to his lectures which is available in YouTube, The Bible's Old Testament was widely edited and summarized. It was a part of an ancient text carved in stone blocks discovered at I think it was in Nineveh the ancient city which was discovered and these blocks are being deciphered up until now. These engraved stone blocks which dates back to several millennia documents the creation of earth up until Adam and Eve and ends with the Great Flood. I think the story is called 'Enuma Elish' and is widely discussed in Sitchins first book - The 12th Planet. Which I consider as one of the most informative books I've ever read.
  24. Wow! Awesome researcher, you have there. I have listened and watched some of his videos on Youtube. I was very curious about his findings. I was reading a lot about the book of Enoch and Zechariah Sitchin caught my attention. I suppose you've already watched the following: This is very informative. Somehow it connects with the book of Enoch. And all the more asking the question "why did they not include the book of Enoch in the canonized bible? And I have some few assumptions as to why.

    It happen the same when I read “The longest Ride” and “The Beat of Me” ... too many chapters a little long but still with somethings that keeps you interested in the story... Mostly of his books are like that... still for some reason I like Nicholas Sparks 😊

    The first one that you mention looks like a very interesting suggestion... thanks for sharing 😊
