Right now I am looking for a good book to read. While I will read almost anything I would like to have a recommendation in general fiction, of possible something in the history vein in non-fiction. Any suggestions?


I'm reading Book Three of Ursula le Guin's Earthsea trilogy. Even if fantasy isn't your thing, this is a remarkable series. I see that Harry mentioned it recently on another thread.

Othewise, if history is your thing, you can't go wrong with David McCullough. I'm thinking of reading this one . . .

I was thinking about the McCullough book, but...
My daughter and son-in-law gave me a audible.com one-year membership for my birthday. Through it, I am 'reaqding' John Grisham's "Camino Winds." I read "Camino Island" and enjoyed it.

Also, despite the over-hype, I got curious about "The Adventures of Captain Bonneville," largely because it was written by Washington Irving. I found a free e-book edition on Amazon, and decided to give it a try. So far it is interesting; the 19th century writing style takes some getting used to, but not a major problem. I will leave a more detailed opinion when I finish it.

The main part reveals your thoughts and ideas in more detail. Usually this block is divided into several paragraphs: each of them contains the answer to the question (or the rationale for the problem), which is raised in the text. It is like a discussion, when a point is discussed and considered from all sides, and in the essay the reader is invited to look at the situation from different points of view. In the main block of the essay, it is important to show how deeply you understand the subject, how well you know the topic. Support your conclusions and statements with logic, arguments, examples and the words of authoritative (in a particular field) people. If the questions you are considering in the essay span more than one paragraph, break each one into several parts. In this case, you can make several logically related paragraphs or a classic list of points-theses. essaywriter.org
