Any books that you would recommend?

October 13, 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

Edit: This used to be a sticky post; I just feel like putting it back where it belongs…

Warning: This is a sticky post, where it would always be on the first entry until I am satisfied with the responses. I do update my blog quite often; just scroll lower and you will see the typical me time of blabbing. Hahaha πŸ˜›

I do wonder how many would respond to this request, what with having so few repeat visitors.

Ignoring the fact that I now have a budget for my monthly spendings on books, I would like to know if there’s any books that any of you would recommend.

Maybe I’m bored with the choices I’ve made, I don’t know.

Nonetheless, I’m still reading them.

Just… Oh, I don’t know…

Oh well…

Tasha; I’m not a fan of Murakami. Norwegian Wood bothered me more than Breaking Dawn did. Hard for me to explain why; so I’m avoiding him. And Hornby’s High Fidelity is already on my list. Just can’t find a copy of it. Thanks for your recommendation nonetheless. πŸ˜€

    Nick Hornby’s High Fidelity.

    Trust me. πŸ™‚

    And if you like Murakami, you might love Banana Yashimoto.

    Or just read everything written by Murakami!

    South of the Border is good. So is Sputnik Sweetheart. Loved Dance Dance Dance.

    Man, I’m such a big fan!

    Just finished Seven Days in the Art World — check it out, great breezy read looking into today’s modern art scene

    If you’re into thriller that sort, I’d recommend any Paul Auster’s or Jeffrey Archer’s. If not, The Remains of The Day by Kazuo Ishiguro and Colm Toibin’s The Master are good. =)
