I’m addicted to Harry Potter fan fiction! Every moment I'm alone, I'm secretly reading the stories, the forums, the recommendations. I can't stop!

Got another book report to do? English teachers have the inconsiderate habit of assigning mammoth-sized works of literature to read and then actually expecting you to do it. This wouldn't be so bad except that invariably the requisite reading is as boring as fly fishing in an empty lake. Half of those books don't even have discernible plots. And let's face it -- the Cliff's Notes are pretty time-consuming too. Worry no more.
I plan to read a novel from every country. Which books are most worthwhile, both as a means to gain the truest insight into the soul of each land, and also from a literary standpoint? I have a long-term ambition to read one literary novel, in English, from (almost) all of the nations on earth. For years, the books I've read have been written, almost exclusively, by white, upper-middle-class American and British authors. I want to expand the breadth of this reading dramatically. I cannot name a single writer or novel from Mongolia, Indonesia, Somalia, Morocco, Brazil, etc etc, much less any of the literary gems from these countries.

Stir Fry (however, as a preamble, I suggest that in the very beginning, one is given more than just the book to learn with. (1) Watching and reading together, and (2) Class of Instruction (1) I learned watching mother (she wasn't a great cook, but very consistent while kids set the table - then she let me cook on my own at age 12 > when Shaklee Protein shakes were very popular) and other mothers. And (2) in 7th Grade was offered a class at school called "Home Economics" (a program I highly recommend Gov. A.Schwarzenegger have some interest in). In Home Economics, we learned some of the science of cooking.
i'm a young professional that does not know ANYTHING about cooking. i found a lot of recommendations (such as joy of cooking, how to cook everything, etc) very intimidating and frustrating. a lot of cookbooks assume you know how to prep and use the ingredients. i am really kitchen-challenged and need exact, step-by-step instructions. like, you can't assume i know how to cut up a chicken, or steam vegetables, etc. the first cookbook i got that was really helpful was "betty crocker's cooking basics: learning to cook with confidence." it's very basic - it's not overwhelming at all. i'm sure other seasoned cooks think it's very sparse, but perfect for a first time cooker. sections are very obvious: beef, pork, chicken, bread, sides, dessert.
T alk to any critic and you’ll hear about a book you must read—often one you were begged to read by some reviewer when it came out, but which quickly slipped off your radar. Such is the plight of critics. Which is why we decided, with the help of the National Book Critics Circle, to ask professional critics (and some other writers) to pick the best under-the-radar book of the past ten years or so. We sought out novels, but a few memoirs popped up.
There was a time, several years ago, when I could read Urdu. Not that I can’t anymore, but back then I actually read it for pleasure. Like novels and stories and Akbar-e-Jahaan with its masala gossip about the Bollywood dudes. Even had a few Urdu versions of pornographic literature. Guess that is what ultimately turned me off of Urdu stuff, porn done in Urdu is just sickening.
