Recently I purchased a book called The Pregnant King by Devdutt Pattanaik. The author specialises in mythological fiction. This book is a delicious tale with gender-bender situations in them. It was in the 'Crossword Recommends' section of the book-store and had a money back guarantee on it. I don't think I'm ever going to return it. Another book I'm waiting to read is Dork by Sidin Vadukut. It comes highly recommended by a friend and I saw Chrys chuckling his way through it.
I love fantasy and my favourites are The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. The Harry Potter series was good while it lasted. I have read all three books in the Eragon series and am waiting patiently for the final one. I'm not sure if I will like the Twilight series, but they are worth a try considering how popular the movie was.
Asimov's Nightfall, the novel disappointed me. H.G. Wells' The Time Machine is a book that brings goose bumps on my flesh when I read it.
Although I prefer fiction, I have read a couple of auto/biographies. The best one is Losing my Virginity - Richard Branson. There was one about Clark Gable which I found slightly boring. I attempted reading Charlie Chaplin's biography when I was really young but left it mid-way. Maybe I'll re-attempt it now. I have read parts of'My Experiments with Truth, but Mahatma Gandhi's philosophy has to be taken with a pinch of salt.
My romance with books continues and I hate it when some film maker messes up a perfectly good book (except for Five Point Someone - 3 Idiots was far more enjoyable than the book).
