AboutI am an avid reader, and I read a lot; I average a book a day, but most of my reading happens on the weekends or when I'm on vacation. The best place to read is in the tub.
What do I get from this? Well, I know how to spell more words than Wordbump, which is sometimes a real pain!
Check out (some of these are available online; if so, it's a link, most likely to Project Gutenberg , which has over 20,000 free classic books online):
K. Eric Drexler's Engines of Creation
S.L. Viehl's Stardoc
Peter F. Hamilton's Neutronium Alchemist
Nina Kiriki Hoffman's The Silent Strength of Stones
Liz Maverick's Crimson City
Sir Edmund Spencer's The Faerie Queene
Umberto Eco's The Name of the Rose
H.G. Wells' When the Sleeper Wakes
If you are a younger reader, then:
Laura Lee Hope's Bobbsey twins
Eleanor Cameron's The Wonderful Flight to the Mushroom Planet
Carolyn Keene's Nancy Drew
Franklin W. Dixon's Hard Boys
Donald J. Sobol's Encyclopedia Brown
Alfred Hitchcock's The Three Investigators
Robert Heinlein's Podkayne of Mars
All of these except for "Podkayne" are series, and I've arranged hem more or less from "younger" to "older".
