Book Revew

What are you reading Now?

What are you Reading Now
I am reading Steve Waugh’sThe Meaning of Luck” and it only just twigged with me, having picked this book up cheap from an Op shop, that he has written several books.

So because Steve is one of my favourite Australian cricketers, I looked them up.  He published “No Regrets: A Captain’s Diary” in 1999 and “Out of my Comfort Zone” in 2005, before publishing the title that I’m currently reading, in 2013.

It is “No Regrets” that I really would like to read (but when I picked up “The Meaning of Luck” of course I hadn’t remembered what his book titles were).   It’s not like me at all to read a series of books out of sequence, but this time around I will.   I remember telling someone off at work for reading the 2nd book in A Streetcat named Bob series first, so now I will “eat my words”.

However, I really do have no regrets reading Steve’s 3rd book first (even if it covers previous events in his life, because I know that he writes logically, without inferring that one has to read one of his other books first to make sense of the “Meaning of Luck”) and the truth is that I don’t know when I will get to read “No Regrets”.

So many books to read

Wish-list

On my wish-list to read are:

  1. Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens  (yes I loved Dickens when I was a kid and haven’t read this one yet)
  2. Michael Crichton books (can’t believe I haven’t read any of them)  – see a good review of 7 of his books here.  I loved the movie “Sphere” and will put the book, Sphere, on my Birthday Gifts list (September)
  3. Out on a Limb (and other books) by Shirley MacLaine

Won’t you share what YOU are
