Recommending good books... It would take me weeks and reams of paper (figuratively speaking). However, here are a few I have read in the last year I would recommend.

"All the Light We Cannot See" by Anthony Doerr (possibly the best book I have read in the last year).

"The Wright Brothers" (Biography) by David McCullough\\

"Existence" By David Brin

"Warriors of the Storm" by Bernard Cornwell (Latest in his Empty Throne/Saxon Chroncles series)

Alexander Hamiltor (biography) by Ron Chernow (I am currently reading this one)

Well "Rise of the colossal" was a good thriller and very in detail and stayed on the main topic which was a secretive organisation trying to solve the DNA that killed people.In the book the main character was the boss and there was a good twist @ the end of the book

"The Black sheep" was very boring and I was wondering if it would ever end.

"The private Olympic Games" Very interesting ,I am currently reading it and Im half way threw it and found it very good. :shock:

I don't have a favourite book.. :shock:

Post Re: Books I Have enjoyed and inspired me!
Recently I was asked if I had the opportunity to choose only one book for a lifetime, what kind of book it would be. I thought about it and chose the work "War and Peace" by Tolstoy ... This is really a thing, multifaceted and versatile. Well, if without such a rigid framework, then of course I like reading books on psychology most of all. After I passed Volikov's test, I read everything avidly, work out my weaknesses, I want to become better.
