Re: Take a Break from Your Phone, It’s Book Lovers Day!

Currently reading 'How to win friends and influence people.'

 

It is an amazing read. I got the kindle version for 0.64 cents.

This is my suggestion for a great read.  I read this book during summer vacation with my family years ago.  Got me interest in UNIX, security, and networking.

1984 is one of my favourites of all time. However...

 

I would recommend Indigenous Writes by Chelsea Vowel for nonfiction. A must read for all Canadians in my opinion. (https://www.goodreads.com/en/book/show/30181589)

 

Or The Humans by Matt Haig for fiction. Both funny and thought provoking. (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/16130537-the-humans)

Not sure if it is the best book, but If Chins Could Kill by Bruce Campbell is easily the best celebrity autobiography I have ever read. If your a fan of his work either on the Evil Dead movies, Briscoe County Junior or the original Spider man movies it is worth checking out. The follow up Hail to the Chin is also really good.

LOVE this book and love Bruce Campbell and Evil Dead. Great mention! Hadn't realized there's a follow up; will definitely check that out.

Smiley’s People

It's the third of a trilogy by John LeCarre⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Yeah, Smiley's People is one of my favorites too from John Le Carre, I like most of his books especially The Russia House and Absolute Friends and The Spy who Came in from the Cold - A Most Wanted Man and The Constant Gardener are good too, but the one book I didn't like from him was The Mission Song which is nothing like the quality of his usual books.
