I read a lot of horror/crime/supernatural fiction, read a lot of Stephen king, Dean Knootz, Peter Straub, Richard Matheson, Shirley Jackson, and the classics ofcourse.

Just finished Metro 2033 by Dmitry Glukhovsky. Great post apocalyptic fiction. The world is devastated by nuclear warfare and humanity has gone underground living in the subways of the Moscow metro. Superb read, different from the same western background/society depiction and values that is read so often.

And have just started reading a horror novel by the Swedish author John Avjide Lindquist
Let The Right One In

Btw, I hate teen fiction...twilight being the prime example. In the words of Stephen King
"Harry Potter is about confronting fears, finding inner strength and doing what is right in the face of adversity. Twilight is about how important it
is to have a boyfriend."


:lol: my feelings on the matter, exactly.
It would be a blessing if they missed the cairns and got lost on the way back. Or if
the Thing on the ice got them tonight.

I could only turn and stare in horror at the chief surgeon.
Death by starvation is a terrible thing, Goodsir, continued Stanley.
And with that we went below to the flame-flickering Darkness of the lower deck
and to a cold almost the equal of the Dante-esque Ninth Circle Arctic Night
without.

How do you guys read? In other terms, how do you spend your time so that you can read? I always have all the time, but I just don't want to read and when I start to read I tend to get bored. Even if I like the book... Any suggestions?

I read all the time on my cell phone or my tablet. i read between office breaks, tea breaks, lunch breaks, even read when I am in office working cuz I have the ebook open on my screen with my work. I read on the throne and when I'm sitting in my lawn with my family...lol...I read whenever I get the chance to read. The thing is, I like what I read and I try to write too, also, English, for me is a third language so I learn a lot from reading. I have stopped using paperbacks though I only read ebooks as they are easier to carry with you on the phone or tablet/pc. The longest of novels are only 1-5mb in size :)

So I read in breaks, half an hour now, then 15 minutes after a get a little time in office...I guess I don't mind the interruptions anymore cause there is no way around it for me.

I didn't realize that was a book! Was the game that came out a few years back based on it? I played through that.

Yes the game is based on the novel. And if you look closely in the first chapter where in the game the main subject wakes up, and is called to follow a man, in his room, there is table with the novel metro 2033 lying on it, plus various posters throughout the game.

I just picked up the Case for Christ and the Case for Faith by Lee Strobel in church.
"Christianity has always embraced both reason and faith."
-Dinesh D'Souza

"Stop listening to John Lennon and start listening to John Lennox! What about a world without the atheists? A word with no Stalin, no Mao, no Pol Pot? A world with no Gulag, no Cultural Revolution, no Killing Fields? Wouldn't that be a world worth dreaming about?"
-John Lennox

Actually the Bible.. :eugeek:
The heart cannot rejoice in what the mind rejects as false - Galileo

We learn from history that we do not learn from history - Georg Friedrich Wilhelm Hegel

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable, if anything is excellent or praiseworthy, think about such things. -Philippians 4:8
