    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’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.

    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.

    This is actually happening already! In California, USA, General Electric will scrap a big natural-gas-fired power plant this year after its only been in use for one-third of its planned lifetime. The fossil-fuel powered natural-gas plant will close 20 years earlier than previously planned because of the growing share of much more inexpensive forms of renewable energy sources such as wind and solar power.

    Agreed @Sanjo. It is also irritating seeing so many neocons and liberals that blame Venezuela's economic problems on socialism while they intentionally obscure and diminish the heavy and sustained economic warfare/sanctions against Venezuela from primarily the US. Those same people also completely ignore the protest activities of Venezuela's US-sponsored opposition which involves systematic attacks on state-run social programs, brutal attacks and murders of those Venezuelans that they see as typical Chavistas (which are generally poor and brown-skinned people). See this quote (from this article The Politics of Food in Venezuela) Trump and his friends are literally calling the guy who won the election a dictator and they are calling the guy who simply declared himself president in front of his political companions and militia the democratically elected... And people just accept this, it's mindbogglingly stupid!

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    I didn't know Che Guevera actually wrote the book. I know who he is. I remember the movie being about him now that you mention it. I thought I had read the book or part of it, but I may have just seen the movie.

    I am currently on repeat reading on the book by Devon Frankin entitled Produced by Faith. It is really a good book if not the best one because it has opened up my mind on so many things in terms of my career choices and living the life I am hoping to. This has greatly opened up my mind on being a faithful individual while following your dreams. It's a good book for everyone to read. Especially the ones who are just making life choices now. Have a look on it and you might like what's inside too. http://devonfranklin.com/produced-by-faith/

    Great work, team! You got me to create an account because I was so enthused by the front page effectively being an invitation to register that I wanted to see what it would look like once I had. I think you've worked wonders; I really do love these theme.

    Cuba has accused the US of engaging in a secret military build-up to prepare for a military intervention against Venezuela, which Reuters reports: Cuba says U.S. moving special forces, preparing Venezuelan intervention It's just downright shameful to use international aid as a cover for military intervention.

    American neocons are not even bothering to hide the real reasons behind the coup in Venezuela. With Trump in office, they don't need to follow the old freedom and democracy script... For example, here is US Senator Marco Rubio tweeting that a coup in Venezuela would result in economic gains for the oil industry in the US: And White House national security adviser John Bolton has said that Venezuela regime change is a big business opportunity for the US and other Western business interests. In this video below, John Bolton states that regime change in Venezuela is about the country’s oil. "It will make a big difference to the United States economically if we could have American oil companies invest in and produce the oil capabilities in Venezuela." John Bolton - regime change in Venezuela is about the oil.mp4 Remember, John Bolton was a key architect behind the Iraq invasion, which also saw Iraq’s oil moved from an entirely state-run enterprise to US companies.

    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.

    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.

    I'm currently reading "Brownies" by ZZ Packer for a literature class I'm taking. We're learning about various storytelling elements and this week's themes is "bullies", so we're reading works that focus on that theme. It's really interesting, actually and worth a read if you're interested. I'm also working through American Born Chinese, which is a graphic novel which goes into a young man's immigration to America and how he struggles to fit in to American culture when he starts attending school here.

    I am currently reading a novel entitled A Bend in the Road written by Nicholas Sparks.This book was with me for the longest time and if I had not been sick and needed to stay in bed, I wouldn't be able to start reading this. I've watched "The Notebook", so this got me interested in his novels. So far so good, there are some chapters that got too slow but some are interesting enough to make me keep on reading.

    Anyone here reading the Wheel of Time book series authored by Rober Jordan? I have read Book one to Book ten and now I have started reading book eleven, Knife of Dreams". It is a novel which I like very much. I have already spent lots of nights reading these books. A friend of mine shared some of the books she had about this Wheel of Time. When I started reading Book one, "The Eye of the World" I already enjoyed the story very much. I went on reading all through ten and now I am in Book eleven, The Knife of Dreams. Thanks to our technology for making it lighter and easier to carry or bring the book everywhere. An e-book is so much easier to have than carrying a hardbound book. Although it is nice to have the physical book itself on my hand and feel the pages while reading it. If anyone like to read The Harry Potter novel or Chronicles of Narnia, this Wheel of Time can match them, even the "Lord of the Ring". Well, have a try reading Book one of the Wheel of Time and see if you won't go to the next book, The Great Hunt.
