Hello literature lovers

Post by Ezinma on Fri Mar 27, 2009 6:33 pm

Hello literature lovers, as students of English most of us have their literary passions. We admire literature, we appreciate the great literary masters, and we donít think that it is vain or useless.
We are not what people call Ďgreat readersí this is for sure, but not because we are students of a foreign language, we donít appreciate art. We get embarassed when people ask us how much time do you spend reading a book, or a novelÖa week ? a month ?...
We need something to motivate us to read !! Is it because we live in a society where books, and libraries take a second place in our lives ( second !!Iím not even sure) we donít read ??.
What I want to tell my friends here is that Ďtimeí is not our excuse, we all have essays to write, papers to present !. So letís make this forum a place where we can share our readings, and motivate each other. Letís suggest books to readÖ
Iíve posted recently a sort of a game called what are you reading currently ?. I admit that I did it because first a kind of curiousity pushed me to know what are you reading mates. Second to be motivated to read more during this holiday, and even to make a collection for the next summer holidays.
Hush Walden is one of the works that I should read one day!
Iíll try to suggest here some books we can read, and please post too, because you may know ones I donít know. Itís not necessary you read it before.Owkey !!.

Iím so exited !! I do hope that this will help us tobreak the spell of laziness, and weariness.We may be one of the great readers one dayÖ Allah knows best !

The first book I want to share with you is Ď My literary Passionsí by William Dean Howells. Iíll be reading it soon InshíAllah.

You're welcome and it's true that Dostoevsky's masterpiece is wonderful! (I am being subjective)

enjoy your reading

Thanks a lot for the suggestions. I hope they will help me because I'm the worst reader in the whole world (be sure, the proove that I'm still in page 100 from 'pride and prejudice' and I don't know when I'll finish it).
Thanks again Ezinma and Hush, Clown I read Arabian Nights and I love it too.
