The Nothing Book
Someone in my age who started with Dale Breckenridge Carnegie (originally Carnagey ) at the age of seven and used most Biblical and Koranic stories and books, read Shakespeare, Hafiz and most Persian poetry and got acquainted with the European and American cultures, The Nothing Book would be selected as the best book. You may see the following on both the cover of the book and also the internet and you will see why I agree with Sir George Bernard Shaw.

"When asked what five books he would take with him to a desert island, George Bernard Shaw replied that he would take five blank books. The Nothing Book is a blank book. The possibilities are endless. Write your own novel, compile a personal cookbook, draw pictures, make lists, keep records, collect autographs, write poetry, plan vacations, start a diary or scrapbook, design clothes, invent needlework or knitting patterns, doodle, compose songs, jot down important dates, keep a guest book, press flowers, gather favorite quotes, accumulate (or invent) funny stories, use your imagination and do your own thing The Nothing Book is your book, it is meant to be whatever you want it to be."

Dear Farhad,
It's an interesting answer! Really 'The Nothing Book' implies an idea of joy, beauty and creation, of course intelligent creation. In the way of life there are some abstract forms or definitions could satisfy us but in reality they are only imagination. Like you I also impressed by John Keats who asserts:
"Heard melodies are sweet, but those unheard
Are sweeter: therefore, ye soft pipes, play on;"

Letter on Keats also realize and asserts: "Adieu! the fancy cannot cheat so well
As she is fam'd to do, deceiving elf"

So, like others yet I could not decide which book is my favorite one because there are a lot of famous and interesting books are written. Hope I will be able to find out the favorite one in the near future!big grin.
Thanks

Dearest Farhad,
Thank you so very much. I much respect your inspirational speech. Really, it would be great if I could write my own book. But that is not easy one for the poor guy!big grin. Even, I will continue my effort.
Thank you and the best of luck!

Dear Md,

There are tales of those who wrote books. In the beginning, so excited and introducing the book to anyone around. After a while, found some mistakes and tried to correct. Later found much more mistakes, doing their best to hide the book from he public although late.

I am sure, you will pay lots of attention to prevent such thing to happen and your capability is high.

Every book has got its own essence, to bifurcate between favorite & non favorite can be difficult task. I regard every book which is written for a good cause or highlights bad practices in our society. That is why a good book always a get desired regard from every section of our society.

Stranger in a Strange Land by Robert Heinlein. A book about a baby that was born to 2 scientists on a doomed expedition to Mars and raised by martians. 20 years later another expedition to Mars reports him as the sole survivor and brings him back to earth. The book begins with his first encounters with humans.
The book is all about how he adjusts to the strange customs and mores of earth. This book is where the word "grok" comes from. A very good read.

I'm glad I could share what I'm reading right now. I thought of getting some detective gig for children and looked up Agatha Christie's "The Mysterious Affair at Styles: A Detective Story" I got if off the Internet on Bartleby under the Fiction section.

I'm half way through it and my favorite chapter has been 'The Night of the tragedy'
Don't want to be a spoiler for the ones who haven't read it. You can take it up too. It's a timeless classic.

Kevin Brockmeier's The Brief History of the Dead.

I first read this book when I was in grade 9 (bought it due to curiosity). It basically gave me a shock and changed my way of thinking completely. But it makes sense. I haven't re-read the book for quite some time but I still remember what is said about Death by Kevin Brockmeier: people only die when there is no one else left to remember about them.

Basically, I like to read detective stories or drama, but somehow most of all liked Harry Potter. The amazing world created by Rowling can not can not forget.. I even wrote some fanfics - case study writer about a love line between Ron and Hermione.

Hey!

Personally,there are many books that I liked. But the book that I loved reading was called the rainmaker written by John Grisham. It had all the elements that a novel needs. A story about a lawyer and how one case turns his life big time.A nice read.


Thanks
Daisy
