THE READING LIST

Here we go, Ladies and Gentlemen (if any),

This is my reading list, hopefully an ever contracting and expanding one, as I strike titles off and get new recommendations. Please, feel weclome to comment with further suggestions, as something occurs to you, or as you read new books that you enjoy. I will delete reccing comments from this post, as I read them, to keep it tidy in here.

These are in alphabetical title by order, I'll more than likely be reading the books as I find them.

Well, I'm going to stand by my recommendation of Fullmetal Alchemist, because I think you might actually be surprised by it. So ner. But I won't make it the whole series - just volume one.

I'll throw in The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde at no extra cost.

I've read The Eyre Affair, as it happens. And I will contemplate the reading of the dreaded Manga. But I'm not committing myself to it but putting it on the list. :P

The Long Walk by Slavomir Rawicz.

Account of a Polish soldier who was captured by the russians (during WWII) sent to a forced labour camp, escaped with six other pisoners, (and meeting a young polish woman on the way, who also was running from the ussr) and walked over 6,000km through siberia, tibet, and the gobi desert to india and freedom/safety. Four of them died on the way. Its pretty freaking awesome.

You have to add the Curious incident of the dog in the nighttime... it is a very powerful book in regard to children with spectrum disorders (Like Aspergers and Autism).
