Hi Trion. Where is this list from? Is it books that you own, or just books you are curious about?

Catamorandi (wwwgoodreadscomprofilerandi) | 1045 comments Hi Trion. Welcome to TNBBC. Nice list.


message 4: by Carol (new)

Carol Read them all, don't limit yourself . You have a good sampling of everything. Put in a few classics and you are good to go for starters.


message 5: by Trion (new)

Trion | 27 comments hey lori,catamorandi and carol,,

lori...these are the books which are available and i can rent it.

carol...i will try..

i have already done with "Angels and Demons" and "How i paid for college".

will keep bugging you guys for suggestion.


message 6: by Alex (new)

Alex Ah, I see.

"Pillars of the Earth" is a much-loved historical fiction novel. People say it's really fun to read. Haven't gotten to it myself. If you're interested in expanding into non-fiction / history / whatever, that might be a good place to start.

Journey to the Centre of the Earth is good stuff. Jules Verne is totally awesome.

Eden (tsalagi_writer) | 210 comments Welcome to the group. If you can try to read all of those books. The only one I've read out of all those books is The Golden Compass and I thought it was great, it's one of my favorite books. Hope you like it if you read it.

thanks for reccomendation

i heard "Left hand of god" is not that good
whats your opinion.


message 10: by Bekah (new)

Bekah (bexorz) How are you liking the books you have read? If you like fiction/humour, definitely go for The Restaurant at the End of the Universe, but only after you have read The Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy.


message 11: by Trion (new)

Trion | 27 comments Bekah.. I loved them

but currently i am dissappointed reading Digital Fortress a bit.

runs like a pattern..gets monotonous..

your advice noted
