    Anne of Green Gables. 10/10
    Just reread it today.
    My favorite book! It's charming, funny, heartwarming, fascinating and bittersweet. It's a great look into the 19th century, and even though it's technically a children's book, it still holds up for adults. :)

    I know what you mean! I've been trying to read more lately.
    I have the time, but I never know what to read. Maybe I'll just start rereading the books that I have. :D
     
  2. That series makes me sad to think about sometimes, because my mom and sister read it together when my sister was growing up, and my mom tried to read them with me when I got a little older, but I didnt really like reading back then and I was bored with it. So I kind of dragged my feet and we never even finished the first book. So now whenever I think about reading them, it just makes me sad that I didnt get to read them with my mom as a kid. But I'll have to just suck it up and read them by myself sometime, because I want to read them.

    The DaVinci Code 7/10
    I just finished reading this for the first time. While the plot was quite fascinating, fast-paced and gripping, coupled with interesting lore, I was disappointed with several cultural and historical mistakes I found in the book, and I know that experts in various fields have found even more mistakes. I believe the reason the book warranted such heavy criticism is because of the fact that Dan Brown claimed time and again that every part of the background story is true - when it's not, apparently.
    I assume I will try out more of the Robert Langdon books, but I have a feeling that the core idea of all of the books is the same: Mr. Brown thinks that with one book he can overturn the beliefs of every major religion, which I don't think is true, certainly if his research isn't quite so thought out.

    The novel looked long, to be honest.

    Well, I thought it was good, plot-wise. Background-wise, not really.

    I've heard the book was criticized for its historical and scientific inaccuracies, which was another reason to avoid reading it.

    I was literally about to make a thread like this one! I was a guy who PMOed late into the night and early in the morning for years. I am no longer spending time on my phone/laptop in bed. I have been going back to the good old days where I am reading until my eyelids are heavy. I really missed out on so many good books because of my addiction, and that makes me sad. The good news is, it is never too late! I feel like I am being reborn again when I open a good book. I love it! Let us all share some book recommendations! :)

    The True Story of Fake News by Mark Dice - 10/10
    He gives some really great in-depth analysis about how the mainstream media can manipulate millions. He doesn't just touch on recent years, but goes back decades. Very well researched and written!

  12. I didn't read that one, but I read Digital Fortress by Dan Brown many years ago. I found it a bit annoyingly dumbed down, a bit patronising maybe. I still read the whole book. It was okay overall, I guess. Average.

    Speaking of the DaVinci Code, I was in a shop once and a guy started talking about it to me. I said, "Are you interested in that stuff?".

    He replied, "I've solved it."

    Yesterday I finished Dan Brown's The Lost Symbol. 7/10.
    The plot felt a bit bland, a kind of 'been there, done that' feeling, but I'm giving it a high rating because of the ending. When the Freemasons' real secret was revealed, I was happy to see that it seemed to really reflect the organization's core idea that everyone is welcome, regardless of faith.

    Anne Frank’s Diary
    10/10
    This book brought for me many thinking of girl: They have emotions, they love to be treated as human, they want to be loved by another boy who really respect them. They want a lovely connection between them and who they love. They want to have touch, emotional behaviors, or maybe just the quiet and peace scenery which two of soul enjoy together.
    Anne Frank, she is intelligent and brave girl. And after I had finished the book yesterday, I cried immediately.
    I would recommend that you should read this book. I’m really sure you will hate P after finish this book :3

    The book I really liked this semester was John Stott's Between Two Worlds. My most recent though: commentaries, tons of commentaries. I even read one on Romans by John Stott, which was great. Stott can really phrase his thoughts well!

    The Revolutionary Phenotype, by Jean-Francois Gariepy. It is a phenomenonal addition to the field of evolutionary biology, detailing how life began, and even how it very well might end. It's a technical tour-de-force, yet it reads like a great fiction novel. Short, sweet and very informative. I would recommend it to anyone, whether we're versed in biology or not.

    All Other Nights by Dara Horn - 9/10
    A great plot, excellent writing, arguments on slave rights, 1860s politics, religion, patriotism, war, soldiers, and spies. Everything you could ask for in a Jewish - Civil War novel. I took off one point because it was open-ended. I mean, the ending is good, but there were a number of plot points that were left unresolved.

  20. Ebook PMO 9/10

    It's a compilation of informations about the porn addiction, a good ebook to get started on this subject. I knew a few things and learned much more.
