    you should read because your mind absorbs more than when you watch t.v. or listen to the sony radio or i pod, and you should read carefully. You read trash and your mind will work like a trash can, you read positively upbuilding literature and you'll hold up a strong sense of yourself and the world, self esteem and a proper perspective. Recommended reading? That'd take too long to answer, but the best book I've ever read is by Arthur Conan Doyle. Oh, and read the L.A. Times, it is still the best journalism in California as far as I'm concerned, and any other newspaper is greatly tainted by politics.

    Source(s): I've read newspapers for some time, and I like to keep up with what is going on around me here locally and in the world in general, and I've discussed this issue with other people and they usually answer that the reason they don't like reading the newspaper is because of all the bad things in it. My advice, in order to be able to read the newspaper, you have to be ready to look at the eye of the storm with a healthy perspective of life and reality as long as you aren't the one making front page news.

    One really fun series is the Blackbird Sisters by Nancy Martin. They are basically mysteries, but have a bit or romance and a lot of humor as well. The first book in the series is called How To Murder a Millionaire. I found it to be a fast and entertaining read.

    If you like it, the author has her own Yahoo Group called Blackbird Sisters. Members can talk about the books and ask the author questions, which she is always happy to answer. She even gives away copies of her new books as they come out! Also, other group members might be able to suggest additional books you might like.

    Good luck in finding some enjoyable books!

    Me Talk Pretty One Day- the funniest collection of autobiographical essays - it quite well registers as a manifesto about language itself. Wherever there's a straight line, you can be sure that Sedaris lurks beneath the text, making it jagged with laughter

    Kite Runner- Traces the unlikely friendship of a wealthy Afghan youth and a servant's son, in a tale that spans the final days of Afghanistan's monarchy through the atrocities of the present day

    Snow Flower and the Secret Fan- A story of friendship set in nineteenth-century China follows an elderly woman and her companion as they communicate their hopes, dreams, joys, and tragedies through a unique secret language.

    The Color Purple- Two African American sisters, one a missionary in Africa and the other a child-wife living in the South, support each other through their correspondence, beginning in the 1920s.

    The Life of Pi- Possessing encyclopedia-like intelligence, unusual zookeeper's son Pi Patel sets sail for America, but when the ship sinks, he escapes on a life boat and is lost at sea with a dwindling number of animals until only he and a hungry Bengal tiger remain.

    Try The Long Walk by Stephen King. It's not a "monster-horror", but rather a psychological thriller. Very good.
