          interstingly most of the books are by foreign authors and are directly or indirectly related to syllabus course books.
          How little we know of our own cultural heritage.

              Only thing common among all guppo is all of themread & write English.I know urdu & have another set of favouvarite so does i m sure many bengali ,punjabi sindhi or other language knowing .Its rather premature of you to judge by what we write.If i just went by what i see of you ,i would think of you as Mini dwarf ,adult man,freak of nature .You wouldnt like that .right .Just to remind you that when you A$$.U.& .ME b/c you assume a lot.

                  Hey one more thing
                  These things are hard to explain
                  For some it seems strange... to swallow
                  The frontier of our minds
                  Is the last place we find
                  But maybe the first place we should go

                          My reply would have to be: The Giving Tree ..by Shell Silverstein....

                          And when he was tired.....he would sleep in her shade.

                          And the boy loved the tree....very much.

                          And, guess what?........the tree was happy.

                          But time went by.

                          And the boy grew older.

                          And the tree was often alone.

                          Then one day the boy came to the tree
                          and the tree said, "Come boy, come and clmb p my trunk. and swing from my branches and eat apples and play in my shade and be happy.

                            I read the message wrong and just listed one book and excerpt of it...

                            I also love:
                            The Good Earth - Buck
                            A Tale of Two Cities - Dickens
                            The Source - James A Mitchener
                            The Mummy - Anne Rice
                            Xanth Novels - Piers Anthony
                            Clan of the Cave Bear Series - Jean Auel
                            Just So Stories - Rudyard Kipling

                            I don't really read a lot of fiction, mostly history books - don't really have a favorite in this catagory.

                            I also like the origins of life/science type books by authors such as Richard Leaky.

                            And I love Cook Books of any kind.

                            I loved the movie The Education of Little Tree. Saw it recently. Never read the book.
