GOOD BOOKS FOR YOUR WEEK-END 

09/02-03/2011

Here are a few book suggestions for this long week-end:

FICTION:

Life and Fate, by Vasily Grossman

The Mysterious Flame of Queen Loana, by Umberto Eco
ah ah, another book of Umberto Eco I had never heard of before. Have you read this one?

Woman in the Dunes, by Kobo Abe
another great book if you are into Japanese literature

NON-FICTION:

Sacred Geometry: Deciphering the Code, by Stephen Skinner
A fascinating and inspirational look at the vital link between the hidden geometrical order of the universe, geometry in nature, and the geometry of the man-made world.

All Your Base Are Belong to Us: How Fifty Years of Videogames Conquered Pop Culture, by Harold Goldberg

The Secret Life of Pronouns: What Our Words Say About Us, By James W. Pennebaker
how can a grammar geek remain neutral to THAT title!

SO, ANY SPECIAL READING PLAN FOR THIS WEEK-END?
