Are we readers except of simmers?The books is the best way to make our imagination running,create pictures which are unique from all of us...
A book is the best method for helping us to make our minds sharper and also making us feel free...

I was wondering if we read and what is our favorite book...

No matter what it is...Maybe its a comic...or a tail...or anything...Minds dont have edges...

My favorite one is one that i have read before 3 years and i read it again and again(3 times more)It Calls ''Long Jon Silver''(Yes the hero from ''treasure island'')and it describes the life of this cool bad guy...I suggest it to all. 😉

I love to read! Sometimes I read, and sometimes not.

My favorite book is "Heart in Atlantis" by Stephen King.
There's also a movie about this book.

Yes, I read. Aside from specialty-related books, lately I'm reading Donna Tart's "The little friend" and - well - Harry Potter together with my wife. Not made up my mind on the latest one yet. Next in line? Probably "Microserfs" by Douglas Coupland

I like to read Harry Potter, they're some of my favorite books. But my favorit book would have to be "Flight of Passage" it's based on a real story about two boys who fly their Piper Cub across the country.

I never read books really. I read things for college but the last book i read must have been something in school!

My favorite book would be In The Arena by President Nixon.

I mostly read books by author John J. Nance. He is a pilot, and has written some fascinating fictions relating to aviation, some of which are "Turbulence" and "Headwind". VERY Highly recommended for all. I'm currently reading a book by John Gunther, by the name of "Death Be Not Proud".

Headwind was a good book - I forgot about that one....

Wow, Death be not Proud! I havn't read that for at least 10 years! What a great book that was!

I've been plowing through a lot of books this past summer (as I usually do since engineering gives me a bit too much work for free time during the year). I really enjoyed them all! One Hundred Years of Solitude was a great book (probably my favorite of the summer), by Gabriel Garcia Marquez, definitly reccomend it. I've moved on to some of his short stories now.

I also read through some books by one of my favorite authors Shusaku Endo (Silence and the Samurai)) Great books to make you think. Went through a few mysteries this summer, and actually just completed The Once and Future King by T.H.White. It's a long book (pretty racy at times) but it's really great! To anyone who ever enjoyed the Disney movie "Sword in the Stone", this would be a good book to go through!

I think I have read Headwind, is it the one with the x-president that gets blamed for an assasin or something like that in Peru? And there are those pilots and the layer? If that is the one, I have read it too. Great Book. 😀

I read quite a bit; in recent years it's mostly fiction. Having served in the navy, I enjoy reading sea stories. Years ago I read all the Horatio Hornblower books, and more recently I read all of Patrick O'Brian's Aubrey/Maturin series (the basis of the movie Master and Commander). And I read all of the Alexander Kent "Bolitho" series. Then I started on the Douglas Reeman books (Alexander Kent's real name) about the Royal Navy during WW2.

But a couple of weeks ago I picked up Dante's "The Divine Comedy: Inferno." Written in the 13th century, it's the story in poem of a trip through hell. Very bizarre.

Other than that, I have two magazine subscriptions that I ready pretty much from cover to cover every month: Scientific American and Bass Player.

Hey Ed, if you like sea stories try out "Star of the Sea." I just read it this summer. It's a murder-mystery-thriller sorta thing (but not really ? Not sure what genre it belongs in!) that takes place on a ship from Dublin to New York during the era of the Potato Famine over there. It spends a lot of time going into character development rather than straight sea-fairing, but man, it's a GREAT book!

As of now, I'm reading a book called "I'm OK, You're OK". It's for class, but it's actually relatively informative. It's about communication and learning how to communicate with someone better and such.

My last book was Airframe by Michael Crichton, before that I read Prey by the same author, and I've also read Lost World and Jurassic Park.

I'd say my so-far all time favorite book was White Shark by Peter Benchley.

OOH FEM, I forgot Airframe - Very good book indeed

I've read The Da Vinci Code and Bernini Mysterie... i like these kind of thrillers as long as you are sceptic about the contents...

Favorites include J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit, Lord of the Rings, and of course, all the Harry Potter books.

These days, when I read, it is to get me out of the real world.
