I know we all have busy lives, but from time to time I really enjoy to read a good Book ! ( I mean a real one – paper ;) ) So if I am lucky , I can lay my hands on let’s say 1 to 2 Books a month. Personally I like to read crime/mistery novels. What about you guys ? Any favorites to recommend ?

Best regards,
dfs

I read books about After Effects, Motion Graphics and now Flash since I want to master it.

I also read books that will help me grow spiritually. The Bible is just the best one for me. Applying the principles found in the book of Proverbs had helped me a lot as a person and in my life.

I will read a paper version, but been interested in the kindle or any digital reader device like sony’s but the books i like usually are not available.

Reading is a good habit that will help keep a good health of your brain. Try the tinkertoys too ;)

Most of the books of Michael Connelly are great. I also like how John le Carré writes.

Once I wanted to get a Sony Ebook reader, which is pretty awesome too I think, but I still prefer a good old fashioned book :) I love the smell of paper.

@doru : I like Connelly as well

My personal favorites :

  • Douglas Preston & Lincoln Child : Riptide or the Pendergast Series <- Grab them if you find them
  • Dan Brown – Angels and Demons / Digital Fortress / The Lost Symbol
  • Richard Montanari
  • Tess Gerritsen
  • Harlan Coben
  • Simon Beckett

    Microserfs by Douglas Coupland. From Microsoft fulltime programers to Freenlancing with lots of Lego and geek stuff.

    Hmm.. I’d post a few titles here, but they’re all Dutch. Of course, classics like Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter are translations, so I suppose I could mention those. I’ve read a few English books in English class, but those were generally not worth writing home about – only 1984 by George Orwell is really something everyone must’ve read.

    Now on to great Dutch books:
    • De Ontdekking van de Hemel – Harry Mulish (Which was awarded the title of ‘Best Dutch book ever’ in 2007)
    • De Overgave – Arthur Japin
    • De Donkere Kamer van Damokles – W.F. Hermans

    Oh yeah.. De Ontdekking van de Hemel was translated to English! It’s titled The Discovery of Heaven and you should have a go and read it!

    Hands off the German edition of The Lost Symbol – it’s really terrible, Poor Lübbe – I think they made an awful translation job this time. Go for the English one.

    Any favorites to recommend ?

    I would recommend any form of reading from any author but related to science and mystery of our own existence. Something like this article which we probably don’t hear from usual news channels.
