Which book do you currently read?
 
I thought it would be nice to start a thread where we post which books we currently read :)



Medical examiner Sara Linton and police chief Jeffrey Tolliver make their fourth appearance in this riveting new back-and-forth thriller that grounds a brutal attack by two young men on the Grant County, Georgia police department in a twelve-year-old Alabama murder case that occurred while Sara and Jeffrey were just beginning their tumultuous romance. En route to a beach vacation shortly after they meet, the couple takes a detour to the small town where Jeffrey grew up and began his law enforcement career. But their carefree holiday is interrupted when his best friend from childhood, a fellow cop, is charged with murder after killing a man who broke into his house. Despite his subsequent confession, Jeffrey believes there’s more to the story than Robert is telling him, and when the skeleton of a young woman with whom both Robert and Tolliver were once involved is discovered in a secret cave only they knew about, and Robert admits to her murder too, Tolliver must again confront a past he thought he had long since put behind him.

French translation of 'Girl with the pearl earring'. As I haven't seen the movie, and French isn't my mother tongue it's tricky (adjectives!! :help: ) but at least I'm getting the plot. :lol:

You all must read Carlos Ruiz Zafon: the shadow of the wind. Best book I've read in ages!

Yep, at first it was a little bit slow, but then, as the story was unfolding, I coudn't tear myself away from it. :yeah:
I LOVE reading, but it had been ages since I was really into a book like that.
It didn't help that I brought the book with me to my (studying) house as relaxation (to read 10 pages every day before bed during the exams) and that I ended up reading it in three days, non-stop. :o

Nothing at the moment. :(
Wanted to start one for two weeks now though.

I read all my books in under one week, but breaks between books are ever increasing.

Philosophy stupid?

Come on man...All laws all over the world are based on some ones philosophical observations. Without philosophy cultures would lose sense of Identity.

Of course, I will grant you that some sub topics in philosophy are quite pointles, like the "how do you really know?" type questions.
