GOOD BOOKS FOR YOUR WEEK-END 

07/30-31/2011

Amazing, already the last week-end of July!

Do you still have some vacation time, and you are not sure what to read next?

Here are some good suggestions for you:

FICTION:

 Sunset Oasis, by Bahaa Taher.
Have you ever been to Egypt? Have you ever read Egyptian authors? If not, why not travel with a book and read this famous book? The link will direct you to some other famous Egyptian authors.

Everything Beautiful Began After, by Simon Van Booy
This author is getting more and more renowned. Follow the link to watch 2 interesting video interviews of the author, especially the 2nd one, not sure you can resist his charm!

Before I Go to Sleep: A Novel, by S.J. Watson, read by Orlagh Cassidy
This is another must of the summer. I recommend you actually listen to this book: the narrator is fantastic. I heard her read The Postmistress

Norwegian Wood, by Murakami
I’m among the crowds waiting for Murakami BIOG book coming in the Fall, 1Q84.  For now, if you have not read Murakami, why not try this one?

Or if you prefer a gool classic, what about
Murder on the Orient Express, by Agatha Christie   

NON-FICTION:

The Shallows: How the Internet is Changing the Way We Think, Read and Remember, by Nicholas Carr

Quiet Corners of Paris – Paris au Calme, by Jean-Christophe Napias
A really cool book on Paris, with neat out of the track pictures, if your wallet does not allow you  vacation in the enchanted city this year!

If you prefer more exotic destinations:
On the Road to Babadag: Travels in the Other Europe, by Andrzej Stasiuk

Or some time travel?:
Citizens: A Chronicle of the French Revolution, by Simon Schama

And a good old classic work of literature:
Aesop’s Fables

And as usual, you can click on the left menu on the titles I am reading right now to get extra ideas.

SO WHAT WILL BE YOUR SELECTION?
HAVE YOU READ ANY OF THESE YET?
