I'm reading

Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson.

It's a young adult book that I highly reccommend to all high school students.

My last completed book was of a similar vein..."The God Delusion" by everybody's favourite evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins.

Am currently reading:

I've also read The God Delusion, I thought it was a really well researched book, a lot of good information there for someone wanting to learn about religiosity.

I just finished the Great Gatsby and now I'm reading Le Petit Prince [en francais!]

I always wanted to get good enough with French to read Le Petit Prince.

^ I really like it more than I thought! It makes me a bit sad at some parts but content with trying to understand whats important in life.

"I ought to have judged by deeds and not by words. She cast her fragrance and radiance over me. I ought never to have run away from her...I ought to have guessed all the affection that lay behind her poor little strategems. Flowers are so inconsistent! But I was too young to know how to love her..."

I always wanted to get good enough with French to read Le Petit Prince.

I enjoy reading it in French, but you know if you google the title, one of the first sites has the whole book on there separated by chapters in English ;)

I know you can get it in English, but it was the fact that if I could read it in French, I'd now enough of the language to get by, you know?

I got a C in 2nd year French in high school. :bagoverhead:

^AP French is a breeze, I'm sure you'll do well. It's fun stuff you get to read next year, too (at least I thought so when I did it). :D

^ I hope its a breeze since I'm taking other APs too, but I know even native speaking French people don't do so well on the exam, so I must make sure I can excel :)

Also reading Burmese Days by George Orwell

I think native speakers don't do as well because it's very grammar-driven, and you don't always think about grammar rules when it's your native language.

Burmese Days is a great read!

That makes perfect sense actually! And I'm enjoying Burmese Days, who would you say is a common day Orwell, I've been trying to find someone with a similar writing style.

I've never even heard of Burmese Days!

:huh:

I've read Animal Farm and 1984's on my "to do" list....

MANDY!!! Read 1984 immediately, I read that book in 2 days (it wasn't one because it was too good to read too quick) and no book has topped that one for me yet. I'm currently looking for one that does. I'll read it again soon, since its been about about a year since I've seen it last. Animal Farm is great, by Orwell I read "Why I Write" and I liked that too. Its not a book, but just some of his ramblings and essays.

War is Peace

Freedom is Slavery

Ignorance is Strength

If you want to read Orwell's best non-fiction book, go for The Road To Wigan Pier, that book *really* taught me a lot about Socialism, and the great thing is that it's very easy to read, but nonetheless still a really complex book.
