I've always wondered - to the people who put up textbooks.. do you finish them/read the entire book? If you do... RESPECT.

I'm currently 'reading' Uncle Tom's Cabin. I really like it, although I've been on it for a while. Oddly though, I finished the entirety of New Moon (the second book in the Twilight series) in one day yesterday. I think it's time for me to admit that I really am just a silly teenage girl at heart.

Speaking of Midnight's Children, it's the other book I brought to this strange land. I first read it when I was 14 I think, so I must have missed heaps. I do remember it being very good, although a bit pompous. But that's Salman Rushdie I guess.

Anybody got any suggestions for some Canadian authors? May as well get into it while I'm here.

I don't know why you'd compare a book list (a dry one at that) with a pickup line.

For future references, In Bangladesh, "pickup lines" as understood by Yanks are not cool. If I ever use a pickup line, I assure you, no American will understand that without background cultural references.

Currently reading "Court Side" (ALTA monthly mag) and "Musicians Friend" catalog .. LOL! It's just so hard to find time to read a good book lately. Some of the best reads I have had are science books. One of my favorite was "E = mc2: A Biography of the World's Most Famous Equation" by David Bodanis. It was a very exciting and mostly complete (albeit a bit dramatized) explanation of Einstein's theory of Special and General Relativity - the history and the aftermath. My all-time favorite has to include "Surely, you are joking Mr. Feynman" which has hardly anyhing do with Physics but written by one of the greatest physicist of the 20th century.

Haynes Repair Manual for Honda Civic.

Yup, just as I thought it's the starter that needs to be replaced.

Noc's already mentioned Mistry; others you can try (if you haven't already) are Margaret Atwood (The Handmaid's Tale, Alias Grace, Surfacing, etc.), Alice Munro (The Progress of Love, Lives of Girls and Women, The Love of a Good Woman, etc.), Robertson Davies (Fifth Business, What's Bred in the Bone, etc.), and Mordecai Richler (The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz, Barney's Version, etc.).

I'm in the west! Vancouver, to be exact. We went on a road trip through Quebec and Ontario last week. BEAU.TI.FUL. I love this country!

I had no idea Rohinton Mistry was Canadian! I have read one of his books, Family Matters, which I liked very much. Will check out his short stories, thanks!

And thanks for your suggestions Shaad bhai. Have always wanted to read some Margaret Atwood, now is my chance I guess. Will check out the other authors too.

Indeed indeed. Is this a temp or a perm move?

Welcome, btw.

Apu, how did you finish new moon in one day?
I finished twilight really quickly but new moon killed me! It went on and on and on an on and on and on and on about BELLA!!! it got interesting once Edward was back . When Edward left i had to read the last page to know he was coming back...then continued with the rest of the story :P
I'm hoping the movie will be better than twilight...coz that sucked big time

anyway I'm reading...Pride and prejudice OMG Mr. Darcy

Oh and I spent the entire day reading New Moon. I had a day off that day, so the entire day really means the entire day, and that's how I finished it. Anyway I didn't mind it because I like Jacob over Edward. I cringe when I read the parts between Bella and Edward. Ewww. But Jacob, I like. And I read Pride and Prejudice too about the same time as you.. for I think quite literally the 15th time or something. Aaaahhh Mr Darcy. (Definitely see him in Shakib). Now I'm reading Eclipse, as Uncle Tom's Cabin gets relegated to the bottom of my suitcase (I'll leave that for a more serious day).

ATMR, I'm only here until January. This place has definitely made an impression on me though so I'm keeping it in mind for the future. Only thing is lack of cricket and excess cold weather. Thanks for the welcome!

I just bought Dan Brown's The Lost Symbol. Lets see how it is. I have never read his book but saw both the films, they were great.
