Marley and Me .. Keeping Faith .. 5 People You Meet in Heaven . .Tuesdays with Morrie .. The Little Prince [though I have never read it in English, so I am not sure if it is as good] .. Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants [again, never read in English] .. A Complicated Kindness .. Guests of War: Trilogy .. most anything by Jodi Picoult .. Blink & The Tipping Point .. Stargirl .. Love, Stargirl .. and I'll stop here but I can keep going if none of these interest you LOL

I am surprised that Claire hasn't commented on this yet however I am sure when she gets chance she'll be able to help you out.

As far as myself is concern I litterly hate books, so no chance of giving you any advise about books

I don't think we share similar tastes xD I'm not a big fan of autobiographies or autobiographical-style novels, I looooathe chicklit and teenage chicklit like the Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants, I'm not a fan of self-helpy things for Harnessing the Power of Your Mind ...

Read LOTR, read some good fantasy, I.e. Not Twilight or Anne Rice but instead Discworld or the Silmarillion. Explore science fiction. Try a manga, they weren't my thing but they were worth a try. Go to the library, get out a load of books, give each one three attempts to finish it and see what was the most enjoyable. Look on Amazon for your books to find recommendations for others.

If you believe everything you read, better not read.

The Horse Whisperer and other books written by Nicholas Evans are good.

If you like medical whodunits I recommend Michael Palmer and Robin Cook.

"On hyviä vuosia, kauniita muistoja, mutta kuitenkaan, en saata unohtaa,
Että koskaan en ole yksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."

Claire did you just typed words from the book or were you telling something? I'd be honest with you I went totally lost in your words there. At one point it almost seems some other language to me hahah.......

I am always reading.

If you can tell me what genre you prefer it would be easier to help you out.
