To Sbella,

I consider East of Eden as one of the best story and book ever written. J.S. is a gifted writer. But I personally recommend you Shiver. I'm sure you'll like it! It's a trilogy. The second book is Linger which will come out on July 2010. I can't wait to read it!

To CrisT,

You and I mostly have the same titles there! I also like the 7 habits book you mentioned. If you are more of the business books, I am more into Psychology books. Personality theories of different Psychologists is what I am mostly fond of. It makes you understand people.

As for my list above, I believe I have failed to mention the classics! Well, the list could go on and on with that..
