Yes there are series of books by the name of Janet Evanovich. Her book series are about Stephanie Plum, a bounty hunter. The whole series are absolutely hilarious, and entertaining to read. I can promise you that you will never stop reading, you will probably finish the book in like an hour lol

the first book is "One for the Money".....you have to read it in order to understand the books....I know you will like it ;)

warning: there are some adult stuff, but overall the books are good

I am reading Liberalism by Ludwig Von Mises. Great book. Its part of my political economy autodidactive project.

I recently read this:

Thats a very disturbing book. David Duke hates black people. Such a racist.

BUT one my many fav books is THREE CUPS OF TEA by Dr.Greg Mortenson--A New York Times's BestSeller and winner of many Awards. (The book's title comes from a Balti's (Baltistan) proverb: "The first time you share tea with a Balti, you are a stranger. The second time you take tea, you are an honored guest. The third time you share a cup of tea, you become family". It is a fantabulous but true story of an American mountaineer (wanted to climb K-2) and his promise with the people to build school for them (in northern Pakistan and Afghanistan). His mission (as he believe) to fight terrorism is through education unlike many Americans.His interviews, videos as well as his articles depicts the kind of human he is.He is the director of the Central Asian Institute whose mission is to provide education to children in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Talibans destroyed many of his schools but he continues his mission..in his own words" the way to fight terrorism is through education".Those interested in supporting his noble cause can give donations to his "pennies for peace" organization. A true human and accomplisher who made the first school in that region by working hard for years in his country so that he can fulfil his promise that he made to the village people! Yeah and his son (very cute) name is KHYBER :)http://myliteraryquest.files.wordpress.com/2010/02/three-cups-of-tea.jpg
"Book Summary

The inspiring account of one man's campaign to build schools in the most dangerous, remote, and anti-American reaches of Asia

In 1993 Greg Mortenson was the exhausted survivor of a failed attempt to ascend K2, an American climbing bum wandering emaciated and lost through Pakistan's Karakoram Himalaya. After he was taken in and nursed back to health by the people of an impoverished Pakistani village, Mortenson promised to return one day and build them a school. From that rash, earnest promise grew one of the most incredible humanitarian campaigns of our time—Greg Mortenson's one-man mission to counteract extremism by building schools, especially for girls, throughout the breeding ground of the Taliban.

Award-winning journalist David Oliver Relin has collaborated on this spellbinding account of Mortenson's incredible accomplishments in a region where Americans are often feared and hated. In pursuit of his goal, Mortenson has survived kidnapping, fatwas issued by enraged mullahs, repeated death threats, and wrenching separations from his wife and children. But his success speaks for itself. At last count, his Central Asia Institute had built fifty-five schools. Three Cups of Tea is at once an unforgettable adventure and the inspiring true story of how one man really is changing the world—one school at a time."

Glad to hear that you like Three cups!! :)
Yeah I have read the "kabbul Beauty School"...ah, did not like it a bit...It's this one another crazy American woman who goes to change the plight of the women but forgets that she is in Afghanistan (she sounded idiot to me)..and guess what! it is an established truth now that most of the stories (very scary stories of Afghan Women) were kinda manipulated....she even did not keep her promise and used the stories of these women (who were working with her in the Beauty School) and put them in danger while she hereslf left in 2007. During the process, she married Samer (her hubby worked for Dostum and he was already having 7 kids from his first wife anf 8th one in preparation) and moved the Beauty School from the Women's Ministry to her house after her marriage, thereby by defeating the purpose of establishing the school for the welfare of women...and writing the book..At the end, I felt she is making a mockery of our culture, place, and herself!Nonethless, you should still read it..sometimes an (apparently) bad book tells you things that you can't find in good ones because they are too good to be analyzed objectively,lol.So read it...you might as well like it :)
Btw, I liked EAT, PRAY, AND LOVE too..I did not know there are such great varieties of Pizza in Italy, interesting meditation places in India and Love stuff in Indonesia..that's a story of another American Woman..a hell lot better than the Crazy Debibie.. Julia Roberts is nowadays busy making Eat,Love, Pray movie :)

What kind of books you like? Specifically what are you in mood of? I can suggest a few..

I'm mostly into non-fiction of the following topics:

- Gender studies, women's rights, minority gender rights (inter-sex, homosexual, transgender, etc.), most particularly when it comes to religious perspectives on the above. Examples: Islam and gender, Christianity and gender, Islam and women, classical and contemporary interpretations of women's rights in Islam/other religions, etc. I've a ton of books on this at the moment, and you may check out my Photo Album titled "Important Books (http://www.pashtunforums.com/members/qrratugai-75/albums/important-books-7/)" to get an idea of what I'm interested in.

- Religions. Any religion, any sect of a religion, any sub-sect of a sect of a religion, etc.

- Cultures and society, including tribal studies. I'm interested in the evolution of societies and culture, and/or comparative studies on the two. History comes into this as well, and that includes history of religions, a nation, a language, etc.

- Abuse. Any kind of abuse, be it against all humans (as in this book on Torture I just mentioned to you), or specific towards women, children, minorities. War victims. The fiction I find most appealing to read is mostly war-related, such as A Thousand Splendid Suns or the Kite Runner. For child abuse, there's this book called A Child Called It by Dave Pelzer that'll make you wanna scream because of what the kid went through! It's non-fiction, and, to me, it was almost smothering.

- Philosophy. Anything related to philosophy, BUT I'm mostly into religion and philosophy.

LOL! The Speaking in God's Name book is very expensive :S (Or at least it was when I was buying it!)

Don't buy every book. Do what I do to save a lot of money: Borrow the book from the library (if you go to a university/college, they have very convenient ways for you to get a book from a different institution -- even out of state! -- if your own school library doesn't have it. This way, you can get hold of any book in the country!). If you decide you loved it and it's worth buying, then only then buy it.

Or... there are many online sources that let you read a book for free. Lemme know if you need those. Sometimes you have to register, but the registration is free. Goodgle Books doesn't have all books, and not all of the ones it does have are offered in their entirety, but it's still not bad. WorldCat.org tells you where the book is located close to you as well. (I was told it provides free access to books, but I haven't tried this myself yet.)

I'm keeping a library and plan to have one -- a large one -- so, if that's your plan as well, then go ahead and buy as many as you can that you love the reviews for, though. But otherwise, buy them only after you see they're worth the price.

Ohh!! I have re-read THE HOURS many times! It's such an marvelous piece of work by Cunningham (the same guy who wrote A Home At The End Of The World).Both these books are Pulitzer prize winners.
Yeah Nicole played the Woolf's character. The other two characters are also from Woolf's other novels.So all these three characters in THE HOURS are affected by Woolf.
Very rarely would the movies be a true depiction of a writer's creativity but THE HOURS movie did justice to the book. Both are my favs!!

I recently read SONGS OF LOVE AND WAR - Afghan Women's Poetry and I must say it was a great waste of money buying this book. The poetry they are referring to in the title is only a very small collection of translated landay many of which are so erotic I felt embarrassed just reading them. Below is a selection of a few of the "clean" landay translations found in the book:

May you perish on the field of honor, my beloved!
So that girls will sing your glory each time they haul water from the spring.

My beloved! If you turn your back upon the enemy, do not come home again!
Go and seek refuge in a distant land!

My beloved, come and sit a moment close to me
Life quickly turns into the dusk of a fleeting winter evening

On my native soil, the martyr's drops of blood
Are the red tulips of freedom's springtime

If you did not know how to love
Why did you awaken my sleeping heart?

My love prefers sky-colored eyes
And I don't know how to change mine that are the color of the night

Heroes are always alive,
Only traitors will perish forever

Read "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" by Steig Larsson, and then read this other two books. Its The Millennium Trilogy- its an easy read. But its very addictive and catching. I loved reading Withering Heights, Jane Eyre and Anges Gray. But when it comes to English Literature, I'm not a fan. Maybe it was because we always had to read them in high school or maybe its because I just don't like it. I actually liked Russian Literature, I fell in over with Gogol's "Over Coat". And from that I went into the novels of Tolstoy, Dostoevsky and of course Nikolai Gogol. From there I went into Kafka and E.T.A Hoffman. Basically, I like the modern novel. I'll read prior to modernity in relation to other cultures. I've read Chinese and Japaneses literature. I've read Italian, Spanish, Oriental and African novels. And for me, English literature lacks the diversity and unknown. Or maybe, being a Comparative Literature major made me really picky on what I want to read. I think Comparative Literature, showed me that these amazing books exist and I can pick them up anytime. I don't have to rely on what I've learned in English classes or what novels are easily available to me.

I used to be able to pick up any book and read on for days. Little novels that were big for no reason. But now a novel has to be amazing for me to pick it up. I'm honestly, in search for the next greatest American novel. I love fiction. I cannot for the life of me reading anything that's non-fiction for fun unless it relates to Islam. I'll pick up books on Islam no matter where I am. But biographical or non-fiction work about anything else feels boring to me. It honestly, makes me want to sleep.

Eyeliner-

That is a great book! It is one of those books that is good to read every few years again, which reminds me I haven't read it again for about 6 years now-though I think I have read it 2-3 times. I guess it is time....

Right now most of what I read is spiritual because I am taking a 99-Day Islamic course, concentration is on the Love of Allah.

Our Final Century: Will the Human Race Survive the Twenty-first Century?

The premise of the book is that the Earth (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Earth) and human (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human) survival are in far
greater danger from the potential effects of modern technology (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Technology) than is
commonly realised, and that the 21st century may be a critical moment
in history when humanity's fate is decided. Rees discusses a range of
existential risks (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Existential_risk) confronting humanity, and controversially estimates that
the probability (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Probability) of extinction (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_extinction) before 2100 CE is around 50 per cent, based
on the possibility of malign or accidental release of destructive
technology.

I would have liked for it not to be such a short novel and written in the same style that the last chapter was written in. Gatsby's had such a strong character and so much about him was still not revealed by the end of the book. I feel cheated as if the writer had written that book in a rush or something. Like, WTF...

This captivating book provides a highly topical guide to one of the most critically important places on the globe – both today and throughout history, and is essential reading for anyone seeking a fuller context for the current situation in the region. As the symbolic gateway between both East and West, and North and South, this book presents to the reader the extraordinarily rich heritage of a country that is one of the great cultural and artistic melting pots of the world.

While the modern nation can trace its origins back to 1747, the history of Afghanistan is far more ancient. It has long been an ancient focal point of the Silk Road and human migration. While many native peoples such as the Kushans, Samanids, Saffarids and Mughals have founded their empires here, the country has also been the target of numerous invasions. Afghanistan is therefore one of the most culturally rich and diverse places on Earth. This lively book places this rich and ancient seam of creativity in its broad historical context and offers the reader a full appreciation of this remarkable country. Afghanistan: A Cultural History is illustrated with a vast range of objects, ancient and modern – from carpets, clothing and textiles, to glass, jewellery, gold and metalwork, from striking sculpture and architecture to beautiful paintings and writing.

This book introduces and explores textiles from Afghanistan from the late 19th and early 20th centuries, including the remarkable embroidery of the surrounding regions of Pashtun, Tajik, Hazara, Baluch, Lakai Uzbek and Turkmen, reflecting the nomadic heritage of the area.

The embroidered items range from dowry goods, precious holders for personal possessions, lovely costumes and items for the home, yurt and domestic animals. Unique techniques such as intricate stitchwork and the use of particular materials, motifs and symbolism will be explored with up-close and inspiring photographs. Examples include a stunning new textile collection recently acquired by the British Museum.

The book also examines the impact of political conflict on the creation of embroidery. While women were exempt from schools and employment, embroidery output increased, but since the demise of the Taliban regime, women have enjoyed greater freedoms outside of the home. The author investigates this theme of tradition and change to present a fascinating overview of the topic.

Almost done with this novel. Baldacci isn't the best writer in the world but what makes him a geniues is creating several sub-plots and connecting them with the main plot. This was also his first book which netted him $2,000,000 and Clint Eastwood as the main lead. That's awesome :jeez:

But I also snuck back into the library for some non-fiction fun, and another fiction

I'm currently reading some non-fiction books, mostly philosophical. I love philosophy, lol. I'm reading some of Nietzsche's work right now, but though I comprehend some of his notions and may somewhat agree with them, most of what he says I disagree with and find that he's quite pessimistic.

I'm also re-reading the Secret Garden. I first stumbled on it when I was a child and it was the first written work that ignited in me a passion for writing. Though the book is meant for children, it is quite an enjoyable read nonetheless, and the vocabulary - the book being written in the Victorian era - is much more intricate than of most novels today.

I'm also reading some Stephen King books, but I find that much of his writing doesn't serve his plot. For instance, in one of his books that I'm reading, there are roughly two pages filled with large paragraphs on how this certain lamp looks.

This was one of the stupidest novels I've ever read!

Here are the main points of the book:
1. The Taliban are ass-raping, Pashtun Nazis
2. It's ok to be a coward, the forces of good will save you in the form of a little boy with a sling shot.

What annoyed me the most was that this book did not feature:
1. Any background on the Afghan civil war
2. Cultural hardships faced by refugees from civil war
3. Background of Taliban
4. Pashtunwali

My recollection of the story might be slightly blurred since I read it four years ago while waiting to go home from Iraq.

THE AGE OF REASON
by Thomas Paine

I PUT the following work under your protection. It contains my
opinions upon Religion. You will do me the justice to remember, that I
have always strenuously supported the Right of every Man to his own
opinion, however different that opinion might be to mine. He who
denies to another this right, makes a slave of himself to his
present opinion, because he precludes himself the right of changing
it.
The most formidable weapon against errors of every kind is Reason.
I have never used any other, and I trust I never shall.

Great great great book I am reading these days

THE ANTICHRIST
by Friedrich Nietzsche


This book belongs to the most rare of men. Perhaps not one of them is yet alive. It is possible that they may be among those who understand my "Zarathustra": how could I confound myself with those who are now sprouting ears?‐‐First the day after tomorrow must come for me. Some men are born posthumously.

The conditions under which any one understands me, and necessarily understands me‐‐I know them only too well. Even to endure my seriousness, my passion, he must carry intellectual integrity to the verge of hardness. He must be accustomed to living on mountain tops‐‐and to looking upon the wretched gabble of politics and nationalism as
beneath him. He must have become indifferent; he must never ask of the truth whether it brings profit to him or a fatality to him... He must have an inclination, born of strength, for questions that no one has the courage for; the courage for the forbidden;

predestination for the labyrinth. The experience of seven solitudes. New ears for new music. New eyes for what is most distant. A new conscience for truths that have hitherto remained unheard. And the will to economize in the grand manner‐‐to hold together his strength, his enthusiasm...Reverence for self; love of self; absolute freedom
of self.....

Very well, then! of that sort only are my readers, my true readers, my readers foreordained: of what account are the rest?‐‐The rest are merely humanity.‐‐One must make one's self superior to humanity, in power, in loftiness of soul,‐‐in contempt.

FRIEDRICH W. NIETZSCHE.

Aisha, Talha and Zubayr
Abu Bakr, and the war of the apostasy.
Umar' brutal and peacefull conquest of Sham
Uthmans Khilafah with his Ummayad influences.


Don't wanna give away anymore. I haven't started yet, but I've been reading, studying this timelines from every book that is available.

BTW

Game of Thrones took the idea of Englands War of the Roses, where families united with other families to control the throne of England.

What does it matter if its fictitious?
I like reading fiction because you can escape reality for a while and just enjoy yourself.

If you can only enjoy yourself through non-fiction then good for you but you are missing out on a lot.

I always recommend people (especially children) to read fiction because not only would it subconsciously improve their English skills (grammar, vocabulary etc) it also improves their creativity.

I read plenty of books in my school years and as a result, English was by far my easiest subject - I had A*'s in my literature, language & history coursework and my friends would always ask me to give them help & read over their work. It is no coincidence that those friends hated reading books and never did so in their free time.

That legacy remains today as I am easily able to write quality essays on a range of subjects with correct grammar, spelling, punctuation & vocabulary. Even on these forums, you'd be hard-pressed to find any sentence written by me without good English, even when i'm trying to be casual - it's a habit and a good one at that.

Lifelong skills learnt simply from an early interest in fiction.

You are absolutely right. Reading novels or any kind of books improve one's writing skills. It also gives you a distinctive writing style if you read many books from the same author.
Btw, you just reminded me a funny story that happened to me when I was in 10th grade. I would like share it with you.
One of my friends recommended me reading English novels to improve my English skills. I went to a Kabarri Bazaar and bought a very fat novel, which I can't remember it's name. It had a photo of a cross drawn on it's cover. The day after, when I came back home from the outside, my schoolbag was emptied and all the books spread out on the floor including that novel. And my father was staring at me like I had committed a very serious crime. The next thing I remember was a big slap on my face.
My nephew had told my dad that I was reading Da Essayano Quran! :cryy:
From that day I said goodbye to reading novels.

I've felt that this book was highly boring.

This is a study of an almost inaccessible area of the intricate linguistic fabric of Afghanistan - namely, its secret codes of communication. The text draws on a profound knowledge of Afghanistan and neighbouring regions, as well as the cultural and sociolinguistic processes at work across Eurasia. The author situates these sociolinguistic matters within the appropriate diachronic and comparative background, and traces the numerous threads which connect them to areas both close to and distant from Afghanistan. The book will be of great interest to scholars from a wide range of disciplines, including, but extending beyond, the realms of linguistics, cultural history, and sociology. It will also be of practical value in many areas, notably with regards to military and political issues, as well as humanitarian aid.

Mantiq al-Tayyar (Conference of the Birds) - Fariduddin Attar

Just started reading this. I wish I could read classical Farsi, the english translation can not do justice this literary masterpiece.
