Lets Read - January's List


One of my 2009 resolutions is to read 2 books/month. Now I need 2 books for this month. Who also wants to read? Can you suggest a book (please)? I'll pick 2 books of your suggestions and read them.

BLaSha said...

it is? I dunno, i'm not good with books, nor reading, i was forced to read it in high school.... it changed the way i think!

BLaSha said...

n yer most welcome :)

ĐǻñĎõøðñ said...

1984 was pretty amazing...

o mtwilight was good too...wouldnt call it amazing though

if you havent read any of dan brown's books, then read angels and demons then da vince code (in that order)

theyre my all time favorite books...and amazing thrillers and page-turners! =)

i usually go to virgin cz they have to newest stuff, bs if you want a bigger collection, go to muthanna ;)

Think-Become said...

novels are best found in muthanna complex in the basement... fee maktaba 3ajeeba hnaaak..

regarding books, i've been reading in blogs that twilight series are so good.. i don't read novels that much but i do read educational books which i prefer and like:P

Think-Become said...

oh oh, biographies are the best thing for me

Bashar said...

2 books per month is pretty good, wish I could make such commitment. I listen to 2 audio books average per month though from Audible.com. Listening is not always as good as reading though, not all books are good in audio. And definitely not Einstien I bet. It may be good for some general knowledge stuff. Biography without so many dates or complex names that you cant trace. For example I listened to ENIAC (How computers were invented... not Windows or Mac... first military funded general purpose computers) and thought it deserves reading as well. It's not good also for Self Improvement, since these books require focus and solitude, while I listen driving. You can guess! Perhaps I will write about my audio book experience in a single post later.

Now what to read... Hmmm... you should've given some pointers about type of books, so now you'll get more than 2 :)

1- Tipping Point: How small things in life, could make big changes, in very short time. For example of our recent life, how Mohannad and Turkish series made it so popular. Perhaps some people with large network exposure, who knows how to deliver the message, made it all spread out like a disease. Ofcourse book takes on different examples, but you get the idea. This book if great for marketers, business owners, starters, and I think for public knowledge. REALLY recommended I already got several ppl buying it, though I still need to finish it all my self :P. But it is great.

/me Checking his library...

2- HARD DRIVE - Bill Gates and the making of the Microsoft empire: The book is as cool as it's name. The story of Bill as never told, since he was 7 years old! Fascinating, motivational, business lessons, and more. While book stops at 1993, and I hope to see an extension to it, it remains way so cool.

3- Business @ The Speed of Thought: By my mortal enemy, Bill Gates him self :). Though I admit, this is the book that got me into business an Bio books. Great for business ppl and programmers/software Eng as well. Inspiring in the concept. He speaks about how the enterprise should act as a digital nervous system, as in one change or effect is any part, would reflect and notify all others. Information must travel @ speed of thought. Will teach you great lessons.

I have a list of what I'm reading at my blog sidebar, and you can click more there to see more comprehensive one. Though it's not always up to date, so I'd be happy in sharing thoughts on any book before you buy it :)

And... tell us about yours. A list of people readings is always inspiring.

Favorite book store: While not as large as before, I kinda like Virgin more than Jarir. Jarir started BIG, but moved slowly. They dont update so often. At least not my type of books.

good luck :)

Ansam said...

Muthana complex ta7at fih good shop + Jarir... amma Virgin, fa ra7at 3alihom! Someone suggested that I read Tipping Point so will see.. I know I cant read two books per month :-S I am too busy for that

Nemo said...

ĐǻñĎõøðñ: Thanx sweetie :)) choices have been added.


Think-Become: I love biographies, can you recommend some?


Bashar: thnx for the reviews!! thats a whole post :), you should write about ur experience with audio books! i've listened to one book only :p it was okay


Amu: thnx :))


Ansam: added to my list, thnx :))

New here,

I'm spending my time here for the kids of Haiti.

I'm doing this for a non-profit organization that devotes themselves to
building an oppurunity for the kids in haiti. If anyone wants to give money then this is the place:

[url=http://universallearningcentre.org]Donate to Haiti[/url] or Help Haiti

They give kids in Haiti books and teach them.

Please check them out, they're legitimate.

It would be great if you could help
