Title: The awakening of Intelligence
Author: Jiddu Krishnamurti
Type of book: Educational
Number of pages: 538 pages
About the book: This comprehensive record of Krishnamurti’s teachings is an excellent, wide-ranging introduction to the great philosopher’s thought. With among others, Jacob Needleman, Alain Naude, and Swami Venkatasananda, Krishnamurti examines such issues as the role of the teacher and tradition; the need for awareness of ‘cosmic consciousness; the problem of good and evil; and traditional Vedanta methods of help for different levels of seekers.
I would highly suggest this book, I am only halfway through and it has opened my eyes to many things; some I knew others I didn't. Overall great book to get you thinking.

A series about 2 friends, one dies in a horrible accident/murder. Then his ghost comes back to lead the main character to help solve the mystery.
I'm a huge DJ MacHale fan! Read the whole Pendragon series a while back. This book is really different than those books tho. It's funny tho, because it has some references that only Pendragon fans would understand.

I've been slow with my reading... more then halfway through 'A good woman - Danielle Steel'
- Rep Power
The Hunger Games! Its a great book, but watch the movie first or you'll be disappointed by the movie..
I read the Hunger Games trilogy in around 2 days because I was so into it. And then when I got to the end of Mockingjay, I was all disappointed because it was such a depressing and just terrible way to end the series. But it would be realistic to end with a bunch of people dying and separating. But I read books because I don't like reality. xD So like I said, really disappointing.
