I borrowed some sci-fi book in English from library to learn some new words (not my first language).
It's "Blood Moon" by Sharman DiVono. The story is sort of mix between crime story and near-future space sci-fi. The style of writing is very simple but I'm fine with that beacause I can understand most of the stuff .

Crooked Little Vein, Warren Ellis.
From amazon -
"Chapter One. I opened my eyes to see the rat taking a piss in my coffee mug. It was a huge brown bastard; had a body like a turd with legs and beady black eyes full of secret rat knowledge."

I am currently reading Dracula by Bram Stoker; I've wanted to read it for quite some time (not to jump on the over-cliche'd vampire bandwagon or anything...), and just recently bought a copy.
I also plan to read The Davinci Code and Angels and Demons... but definitely not one right after the other!
I'm a fan of religious fiction (Christian) and have just begun to pursue books of that nature, so does anybody have any suggestions that fall into that genre?

"The Most Dangerous Animal" by David Livingstone Smith
I think this passage will give you the idea...
Re: Einstein's 1932 speech to the League of Nations-
"Einstein's choice of topic was consistent both with his social conscience and with the broad mission of the League of Nations: he wanted to discuss the problem of war. Instead of approaching a fellow physicist or a statesman, political scientist, or a military historian, Einstein turned to the elderly Sigmund Freud, asking him to address what he described as "the most insistent of all the problems civilizations face."
This is the problem: Is there any way of delivering mankind from the menace of war? It is common knowledge that, with the advance of modern science, this issue has come to mean a matter of life and death for civilization as we know it; nevertheless, for all the zeal displayed, every attempt at its solution has ended in a lamentable breakdown."
