I have started reading 'Blind Assassin' from Margaret Atwood..
I have recently read many books but enjoyed "Outliers : The Story Of Success" by Malcolm Gladwell.
It's an interesting book talking about success and trying to analyse and study successful people and determine success factors, what i didn't agree is that the took the example of the USA,it puts a question mark here because those factors must be adapted with most cultures for them to be universal.The environment varies from country to another so some factors can appear in one place but disappear in another.
I enjoyed the law of 10.000 hours tand it says that everyone who spends 10.000 hours in a special field becomes a genius in it,you can read the book for more details.
Actually, I've read two books :-? ; Jane Eyre (which is ABSOLUTELY THE BEST BK I HAVE EVA READ) & The Ipmortance of Being Earnest.
HI...I have recently read Just for life(based on the life of Vincent van Gogh) by Irving Stone..It's wonderful book...
Looks like an interesting one. And it is not an expensive book.
It is good to know your opinion about it ulya. I am not exactly a fond of painting, but I guess maybe it is worth to give this book a try.
By the way, I searched the book and I think its title reads "Lust for Life".
I've read 'New moon' by Stephanie Meyerı strongly think ,those who dont have the habit of reading a book arent aware of what they are missing;-)
ı am about to finish the book Improbable from Adam Fawer and ı've bought Empathy which is also from A.F.
