I´m reading for school "Beim Leben meiner Schwester" (original: My Sister’s Keeper).
My Sister's Keeper is a novel by Jodi Picoult. The story is about the life of 13-year-old Anna Fitzgerald, who enlists the help of an attorney, Campbell Alexander, to sue her parents, Brian and Sara Fitzgerald for rights to her own body. Kate Fitzgerald, Anna's older sister, suffers from leukemia, and their parents conceived Anna through in vitro fertilization to be a genetic match donor for her sister Kate . Anna donates genetic material throughout her life, including blood and bone marrow for her sister. Their parents want Anna to donate a kidney to Kate after she goes into renal failure, but Anna instead files a lawsuit against her parents for medical emancipation from her parents despite the consequences of her sister's health.

Yes, that has recently been made into a film. I had never heard of it before, but it sounds like a very moving and sad story

I am trying to finish a book called the Cain Muntiny for a school class. What a long winded book about the WWII navy.

I am reading "Just After Sunset by Stephen King.

These are 13 short stories that are typical of Stephen King. It's about ghosts, about the destruction of the World Trade Center and even more curious stories.
Very recommended.

Unfortunately, currently I don't have much time to read books very different to my legal handbooks. However, as a devoted Anglo-Saxon literature admirator and a book lover I read The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde. His language is wonderful, descriptions picturesque and finally plot is passionating.

I mentioned this in the family history thread I created, but I'm reading The Man Who Changed Everything: The Life of James Clerk Maxwell by Basil Mahon



A biography of one of the greatest scientific minds in history, and certainly the most underrated scientist of all. He unified all theories on electromagnetism, giving us the modern world of electricity, electronics & radio communications, he revolutionised thermodynamics and he took the world's first colour photo. His work inspired Einstein and led to Relativity & Quantum Theory. Its a wonderful book, giving the reader a fascinatin ginsight into the life and mind of a truly great man.

The book of basketball by Bill Simmons.  If you enjoy Bill's columns on ESPN.com you will enjoy the book.  A lengthy read at 700 pages though.

Presently reading "The Steel Bonnets" by George MacDonald Fraser, the story of the border reivers and tribes along the Anglo Scotts border, a facinating historic read.

On an extended IYNO break... for now.

Just started reading The Evolution of God, an anthropoligical/evolutionary look at how religion developed and evolved over the course of human history. So far, it's very interesting.
