Help me name my kitten!

Sorry this isn’t a book suggestion, but I thought it’d be kinda fun - I have a tradition of giving my pets punny writer names. Currently I have F. Scott Fishgerald and Margaret Catwood (Maggie for short). I’m getting a new kitten, a boy, and he doesn’t have a name yet! Best ideas I’ve had so far are…

As audiobooks have allowed me to greatly increase the number of books I consume, I've been branching out into new areas and a gave Murder On The Orient Express a try. I didn't love the narrator but I can get past that and enjoy the story for it's merits. The set up was good and the ending was…

I'm uninitiated, but I assume that a poetry book can't be tackled like a regular book, or is it? I don't think I would enjoy the book if I had to read the same page over and over again without a specific strategy. What kind of method do you use, or with your experience, what works best to extract…

I know everyone who likes mythology has probably heard of Percy Jackson but there’s a continuation of the series called Heroes of Olympus that not as many people seem to know about. I actually prefer this series to the Percy Jackson’s and want more people to know about it The books still include…

Any book recommendations to help me start feeling more positive and make a change in my routine and also to decide what i want to do in life and what career i should pursue in order to become happy and successful( you can also suggest any books other than this that you think i should read) Thank you

I just saw on tv that there's a new remake of West Side Story coming out. This got me thinking what if books also got the same treatment as movies did. What if every 20-25 years a classic got rerelease but also rewritten by a different author? Would the new release be better? What changes would…

I never thought I'd read a book written by the Fresh Prince. "Will" is a very well told celebrity coming of age story, it's probably the best autobiography I've read. I highly recommend the audio book, he narrates it himself and it's one of the best produced titles that I have ever listened to. For…

I hear a lot of times that a lot of readers were reading fanatics when they were younger. Although I wasn’t much of a reader in elementary school (i simply did not have the focus to finish a book), I was a reading fanatic in middle school. My favorite series at that time was The Lunar Chronicles by…

Just finished part one, and don’t wish to have it spoiled but just need a place to let out what I feel so far. This is truly the greatest novel I have ever read and I’m glad I waited till now that I’m in my later 40s. I feel as though I can appreciate it more. I’m amazed at how Tolstoy is able to…

If you're one of those people who "used to read for hours at a time" when you were a kid but now struggle to do even 15 mins straight, consider seeing an optometrist and having your vision checked. Many people's eyesight starts to degrade in their 30s or 40s. You might not notice it in your day to…

All I could think about while reading these books is what I would do if I had to try and raise my family in one of these countries that are ravaged by the drug trade. The fact that the books are based off of real life events make my soul hurt. I knew it was bad but these books really give you…

We tend to favor things that leave a good first impression, and as such I think we're more likely to run into things that leave us feeling let down. But what's a book where you've had the opposite experience? Where you started out distinctly not liking it. Perhaps the story took it's time moving…

A little background. A while ago, someone posted here asking for advice on how to combat his ignorance through reading. There was comment that really struck a chord with me and inspired me to start reading to increase my understanding of the world and also to value books beyond just for being…

Quoth Siddhartha: “What should I possibly have to tell you, O venerable one? Perhaps that you’re searching far too much? That in all that searching, you don’t find the time for finding?” [...] “When someone is searching,” said Siddhartha, “then it might easily happen that the only thing his eyes…
