    What's the last book that you read?

    Hello everyone!

    I've been rereading books from my old Kindle, and I found one of my high school favorites, Broken Symmetry by Dan Rix. It's a typical YA story, with the stereotypical romance, predictable moments, and the surprisingly independent 17 year old protagonist, but the premise was interesting. I don't want to spoil too much, but I remember it giving me an existential crisis back then, and it still does after reading it again. What's the last book that you read? Was it for a class or for fun? Did you enjoy it? Do you plan to read anymore by the author, or on the subject?

    Thanks y'all!

    The most recent book I've finished is "Rainbow Valley", which is part of the Anne of Green Gables series. My plan for this year is to see how many books I can read by the end of the year, and I started the eighth and final book of the series, so that's good! I was introduced to Anne of Green Gables by my great Uncle Wesley, who gave me a shorter, hardback book of it for Christmas when I was three years old. I found out that the book was part of a series when I was older, so I was able to find the series and it was given to me as a birthday present. Fun forum!

    Hey Nya,

    I'm currently reading the book "The 5 love languages". I actually heard about it at a project manager bootcamp, but it's about how we all accept love in a different way and we all give love in different ways. So, yo I have to realize that people want love in different ways, such as touch, gifts, quality time, words of affirmation, etc. it's great if you're in a relationship, but even relates to work, with dealing with different personalities and such.
    Great forum!

    Hello!

    Recently I finished reading the Collected Poems of William Carlos Williams! He wrote in the early 1900s and I really love his style. If you wouldn't consider a collection of poems a book, I read Tender is the Night by F. Scott Fitzgerald previous to William Carlos Williams. I definitely recommend Fitzgerald, although I think The Great Gatsby or This Side of Paradise beats Tender is the Night as far as enjoyment goes for me.

    I plan on reading the Portrait of the Artists as a Young man next, which I know absolutely nothing about! I hope I enjoy the story!

    Thanks for the post!

    Hey Hey!

    The APA writing standards, 6th edition. I believe it was authored by Satan himself.

    The most recent book I read was for a college literature class, it was Oryx and Crake by Margret Atwood. I found it to be a very insightful and cleverly written tale. It was a cautionary tale about the folly of humanity's hubris, and it really impacted me.

    Hey Nya,

    I'm currently reading "I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings" by Maya Angelou. It's her autobiography and I had to pick it up because 1) I love her writing style/poetry and 2) Her resilience is amazing. Her struggles are unimaginable compared to my own but I am inspired most by the fact that her silence for so many years is what ultimately empowered her. Her words bear so much weight and you can feel them through the pages. Thanks for the great forum.
