"...hi, I posted a thread about reading stuff from the Internet recently got some good links there, but since I will be going into the city of Exeter in a few days time I thought I would buy a book to read so I am all ears..." said the goblin.

I am halfway into John Irving's "Until I find you". If you've not read Irving before, read "The World According to Garp" to start. John Irving is just a good storyteller.

The local library had a book swap last week, and I got a copy of Leonard & William Safire's "Good Advice", an anthology of quotations. He is the "On Language" columnist for the NYT, and any of his books are fascinating reads. The English language is fascinating from its historical context and its flexibility to be precise, even when it is necessary to [bleep]ize words from other languages. Linguists are studying the effects of the internet and the chat lingo/ text msg on how we write and communicate IRL.

I hope you have a good visit in Exeter. Do you have a laptop, or will you be offline?

Really good book that teaches you about life

(CAUTION- OLD)
The Sea Wolf(1914)
By Jack London

You can get it for free on the 'net(It's released to the public for free) but I'd highly recommend getting the book from the library. Reading it on the 'net is just not the same...

Also try- The adventures of Tom Sawyer
Good Earth
The Call of the Wild
White Fang

For a "different" read, try the "Dark Tower" series by Stephen King. The first in the series is "The Gunslinger". There are 7 books in the series written over a twenty-five year period. It's a good read if you're into a strange and somewhat magical journey.
