What books have you read?
Books like novels or short stories that I've read:
- Difficult People
- The Monkey's Paw
- Tell Tale Heart >-- I don't really like this one.
I finished a novel by J.D. Salinger called "The Catcher in the Rye" just now. But currently and forcedly have to read this book called "The Great Gatsby" to be honest, I don't really like it, though. I actually like a book that questions me and contains deep meaning through the story, if you know what I mean.

What about you? What books that you've read? Any recommendations of books for me to read after I finish “The Great Gatsby”?
(p.s. Please share the English books only)

I'm reading Norwegian Wood right now.. D (it's a japanese novel, but i'm reading the english translation)
actually the first novel I read in a while.
so i'm afraid i can't give you any recommendation..

And what a coincidence, the book i'm reading now speaks of great gatsby, as one of those books only few people would be interested in.

Do you mean all books? or novels?
Want the list of my uni books? p Just kidding

I haven't read novels for quite a while, but I enjoyed reading:
- The Alchemist (by Paulo Coelho)
- the earlier series of Harry Potter(by J. K. Rowling)
- Musashi (Eiji Yoshikawa)
- Memoirs of a Geisha (by Arthur Golden)
- The Lovely Bones (by Alice Sebold)
- Ingo (by Helen Dunmore)
- The Story Girl and The Golden Road (by L. M. Montgomery)

They are all quite easy to read~ they are nice reads to fill some time, unless you have read them before D

I also have By The Light Of The Moon (by Dean Koontz) and Going to Pot (by Jill Laurimore), but I haven't read them. (only bought them because TGA had a sale hammers)

what exactly is your definition of "books" here? because i've been able to read since I was about 3-4 years old, and i've read like hundreds,,, no,, thousands,,, heck, maybe even millions of books.
does comic books counts? or maybe engineering books about mass-energy balance, unit operations and fluid mechanics? or maybe an adult-theme novels?
my point is there's a very wide area of "book" themes, and to decide which one that I can recommend to you depends on what interest you have.
as for myself, I'm currently reading trinity's naked traveler.. I'm planning on going backpacking in the near future, and the naked traveler is a good book to read for that matter.

I've read Jane Eyre too, and I really enjoy it. I read the english copy, with yellowed paper and all since it was printed on 1970s (I don't really remember). But yeah, this novel was simple and maybe a little boring yet at the same time wonderful and romatic!

I've started read the Catcher in the Rye and haven't finished it yet, I don't know, it seems that I don't really enjoy that one.

If you want some valuable books, you could give Mitch Albom's works a try!YbYb

Now Iam reading dead until Dark by Charlaine Harris. :P

Hm... A hard question hammers
I guess Musashi. Oh, and Memoirs of a Geisha D

Look at all the suggestions here, I'm pretty sure it will need more than a month (or even a year) to read them all cendols

It's going to be the most amazing book I ever read. It is a classic american novel; The Great Gatsby by Fitgerald. And I also read a lot of lit.

I'm currently re-reading some of Agatha's books, I think some lighter books would do good to kill time in Ramadhan.

**Just bought poconggg juga pocong book! Yippy!**What books have you read?
