@notme @Islandsandmirrors @Hameedeh @wmehar2

I finished reading Call of Cthulhu and the Nameless City by H.P. Lovecraft.

I'm gonna sound lame but, I've not read a novel/book since I was in highschool.

I've read poetry here, and there; and then mathematical/statistical books, historical books/encyclopedias..online. 

I used to love reading but... *shrug*

I went through that too. I was an avid reader as a child, but then got busy with life and only found time to read textbooks and technical texts.  I found my way back when I got my first eBook reader. I came preloaded with 100 classics and fit easily in my purse.

I do, but as @notmeput it,  Life has hijacked my time.  It seems I need to break through the technology bubble.

Maybe I just need someone to read me a book xD.

I used to read music too, not just listen, and then write some.

Audiobooks?

@wmehar2 don't laugh. If you have a long commute or routine extended wait times, audiobooks can be quite satisfying. Check your local library - I bet they have some, maybe even to download so you don't even have to go there.

Wasn't quite laughing at the idea, was laughing because it feels weird to be read to by a prerecorded device,  I'd end up playing with some speed setting to make the audio sound funny. 

Unfortunately I don't beleive I have the capacity to drive and hear something like a story or even music.

I drive with nothing playing (hyper focus issues).  It's too distracting for me :/

I need to literally sit, with an allocated time slot, and read or hear a book.

Those are some of my favourite books! Dystopian fiction is really great, because it makes you think. I would also add Farenheit 911 to the list.

If you want a recommendation for something more on Islamic themes, then you can check out "The Ark of Salvation". It's a newly released book about the life of Imam Husayn (AS), in the form of an epic poem.

I've read a few dystopian novels and I'll list them from in my opinion best to worse:

1. Brave New world

2. 1984

3. The giver

4. Animal farm

5. The handmaid's tale
