    O_O I'm pretty sure I made perfect sense, Jehanzeb. I don't see any tricky-to-understand bits! XD I just googled some of the OP's titles to see what kind of books she liked to read and went from there.

    Hahaha the OP didn't post any books .. the second reply to this topic was me. And I was throwing out some books I have read over the years because she didn't give any indications of what she liked or didn't

    Hahahaha! Regardless of what books she searched for it was still difficult for me to get things into my head. It almost seemed like the content came out of the book.

    I guess you have very good writing skills Claire, I encourage you to write a book. Perhaps while doing your dissertation you can show your skills? I would really love to read it

    My apologies, I was posting without looking back up the thread xD

    I doubt my dissertation will give me much opportunity to show off literary technique. Nevertheless, I do strive to be one of those engineers who can actually communicate well.

    I am sure your skills will show in your dissertation. You can try hidding your skills but they do show up even if you want to hide them

    I don't try to hide them! XD

    Well I meant to say I am sure you wouldn't be able to hide them (even if you would have tried)....

    Anyhow, lets not get off topic here...

    I recommend! Cook & Palmer write very interesting books.

    Tiff, one of my all time favs is one called Watership Down. Written by a dude named Richard Adams. If your local library doesn't have a copy, they can get one. It was a bestseller for a long time. It is a book that sucks in people who don't generally read. (Young adult up.)

    Also, the books written by James Herriot. All Creatures Great and Small ... and the others. They are about a vet in England back before they had penicillin. Great ( and funny) stuff. (All ages)

    The Black Stallion - best horse book written. (Teen/young adult)

    My all time #1 fav - The Stand by Stephen King. Good vs Evil. The end of the world .....? (Adult and scary.)

    Herriot is a great writer just like DashAwayAll said. There's also other veterinarian author named Hugh Lasgarn. If you or anybody else like Herriot I recommend Lasgarn's books too.
