I think it will be fun if everybody contribute an answer here. You never knows what books are famous or what books are spreading quickly in the other side of this planet. To know what books they are reading is a way to know a small part of their lives.
I'm not a native english speaker, but I have some friends who are from US. Sometimes I went out with them, most of the time I can understand what they are talking about, but sometimes, they use some special words/concepts or talk about some jokes that only people living in certain environment can understand. So I came up this thought: maybe I can get to know more about different "context" of different caltures by reading books that native people are reading.
I will post my answer first:
I'm from Beijing.
My favourite book is The Sea-Wolf written by Jack London, but only in Chinese version.
I'm reading The Time Traveler’s Wife currently, english version.
Please don't hesitate to post your answer!
Maybe this is different alittle. I am ready many books at the same time. First, I descided to read Fundemantal of Aerodynamics by John D. Anderson Jr. then I realized I need to return and read about fluid Mechanics to better my understanding. Also, I am ready book entitled "cool thermodynamics" by Jeffrey M. Gordon and Kim Choon NG . Finally, calculas is one of my favourate subject to read from time to time.
