  1. Currently I am re reading the Percy Jackson series and the Trials of Apollo so in order to remember everything once again for the 5th book of Trials of Apollo, what are you reading currently, Pheonix?

  2. Awesome page, Phoenix! I am currently re-reading Artichoke Hearts and I’m also reading Percy Jackson and the Lightening Thief. I am planning on reading ‘Gitanjali’ by Rabindranath Tagore as well. What about you?

  3. Oh yes, it’s very good.
    I’m currently on a John Grisham streak. The Firm, The Confession and The King of Torts are sure to keep you on the edge of your seat! John Grisham’s ‘The Confession’ questions the moral fabric of the society. It also pairs well with ‘To kill a mockingbird’.
    Happy Reading πŸ™‚

  4. Awesome! A few weeks ago I loved reading the Irish comedy/romance ‘The Dowry’ by Walter Keady, which I reviewed on my blog. πŸ™‚
    A bookish fact I thought was cool is that Jane Austen published some of her work under the pen name “A Lady”! I also read that she published her books through her brother Henry because she knew she’d have a better chance of getting published through his submission of her work.

  5. Human Accomplishment by Charles Murray, 2003, is the current book. Recommendations: The Red Heart by James Alexander Thom, The Far Pavilllions by M. M. Kaye, The Agony and The Ecstasy by Irving Stone, The Bourne Identity by Robert Ludlum.
    Phoenix, I was looking for your book on amazon, it seems I can only find a kindle version, is there a hard copy edition? We don’t have a kindle, but am I able to read it on my laptop instead? Only curious.
    Yours is an excellent page, thank you for all your hard work and all you do to help others, you are very appreciated.

  6. Hi there, welcome to Penable!
    Great recommendations, thank you for sharing!
    Thank you for your interest. There is no paperback just yet, only the kindle version. You do not need a kindle to read it, just a phone or a tablet and install the kindle app.

  7. Thank you for the information. Sadly, I have neither of those, well, I should clarify about the phone, mine is just a little flip phone that is used as an expensive pocket watch, calls are extremely rare and I never text.
    The future of reading seems to be going more electronic, so some day I will be forced to update myself. There are atleast 4-5 others here on wordpress whose publications I would purchase if they were published (so far you are the first I know of in the small circle of authors I read).
    Thank you again for our great work.
