    Angels and Demons was waaaay to boring, I thought it was so similar to the Da Vinci Code :/
    I didn’t finish it, I don’t think I will

    but we have a similar taste in books ;)

    I found it more interesting than The Da Vinci Code although it was less of a page turner:)

    kila ma6goog
    Yeah, I should get a copy of that. 7adi qadeema on that one;\

  4. 4Purgatory

    my current stock contains mostly books by chuck Pallahnick, Hunter Thompson and philip pullman with a few others here and there.

    Chuck Palahniuk: I watched Fight Club before I found out that it is based on a book.

    Hunter Thompson: I feel like he’s too American for my taste. I shall attempt and get back to you on him.

    Philip Pullman: Never heard of him. Is he English? ;\

  6. 6Purgatory

    !!! he wrote the his dark materials, the first is being released as a movie next month!

    As for the other two, I enjoy them, they are different.

  7. 7Amethyst

    ThePurg
    Okay! And he is English! If I get my hands on something, I’ll let you know:)

  8. 8Purgatory

    I recommend you finish his trilogy before the movie.

  9. 9Amethyst

    ThePurg
    We shall see how that goes. Knowing that there are books the movie is based on, I will not watch the movie until I finish the trilogy:)

    Hello!
    I’m also a big Paulo Coelho fan and I don’t know if you’ve heard about his blog
    http://www.paulocoelhoblog.com
    I started as a fan and now I’m collaborating with him and thought that you would like to enter his universe.
    Check out the blog, if you want, or subscribe to his newsletter
    http://www.warriorofthelight.com/engl/index.html

    You’ll see a community of warriors of light sharing ideas, dreams and most importantly following their personal legend.

    QUOTE OF THE DAY:
    “The secret lies in the present
    - if you pay attention to the present,
    you will be able to improve it.
    And if you improve the present,
    whatever happens afterwards will be better too.
    Each day brings us Eternity.”

    See you there and have a great day!
    Aart
