Power-Up by Chris Kohler

My kind of book indeed, just as the subtitle stats, it’s a chronological story about the “interesting part” of videogames history and reveals how the Japanese industry of videgaming change our lives and perspective of videogames for good (i.e. Nintendo, Sega) and how they influence the western industry. Give it a try.

The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova

My cousin was raving about this book for sometime now and I decided to give it a try. The story revolves around a young woman who decides to trace his family history and she discovers some dark secrets and hidden agendas in her family tree.

Banat Al-Riyad “Girls of Riyad” by Raja Abdullah Al-Sane

The ultra controversial book that stormed the charts in the Arab world, it seems everybody I know read this book, so I felt left out. I rarely read Arabic-written books but this one seems very special. I need to catch up with the rest of the world and read this one up.

    Yeah, I heard it is hard to put down once you read it. I’ll probably read next weekend 😉

    I’m starting with the Historian once I finish the first book (which shouldn’t take to long). Thanks for the advice, I’ll try to be patient when I start reading it ^_^
