Hello, i just bought my first android powered device (phone) and you won't believe how much it changed my life, one of the most interesting thing is that, this is the first time i'm actually reading books FOR FUN! one of the main reasons i didn't read a lot is just because i'm far so lazy to carry the extra weight of a book every day, also it's kinda annoying trying to read a full size book in the bus while it's moving, so the e-books have completely changed my view about books; and i was wondering wich English spoken books are really good to get, i've got a lot of great spanish books but now i feel like i want to have more practice (since my english sucks, as you can easily see); in the furture i'm gonna have the TOEFL exam so, you know i need as much practice as i can get.

 

Then, please give some advice of wich are the best of the best in English spoken books, some grammar would be great. (also french books if you want, but my frech is even worse than my English :P

Joseph Conrad learned English as a second language and perhaps because of that his writing is impeccable. Heart of Darkness is perhaps his best known work. The Secret Agent and Lord Jim are also good reads.

 

Ernest Hemingway was a newspaper reporter early in his career. His writing style reflects that informality but with a real facility for evoking powerful images and emotions. For Whom The Bell Tolls, The Old Man and the Sea, A Farewell to Arms, and The Sun Also Rises are a few of his well known works.

 

Does your local library have e-lending services?

H.P. Lovecraft. But it's not a book. Rather it's a character that appears in a number of short stories.

The English version of ANYTHING by Markus Heitz or Bernard Hennen if you like a bit of fantasy with an interesting take on it.

 

For sci fi I can hearily reccomend the Culture series by Iain M. Banks

Case: Meatbag, humanoid - APU: Human Brain version 1.53 (stock clock) - Storage: 100TB SND (Squishy Neuron Drive) - PSU: a combined 500W of Mitochondrial cells - Optical Drives: 2 Oculi, with corrective lenses.

My vote is also for Ender's Game. It's written at like a jr high reading level, but is amazingly entertaining and part of one of the greatest scifi series of all time. One of my favorite books! Funny thing - it's actually on the recommended reading list in the US Military.
