· All by Paolo Cohelo. This brazil writer who books, translated into 56 languages, have not only topped the bestseller lists, but have gone on to become the subject of social and cultural debate. The ideas, philosophy and subject matter covered in his books touch the aspirations of millions of readers searching for their own path and for new ways of understanding the world. For mention some of them The Alchemist – about this shepherd who begins a journey to find out about his treasure. Indicated to every one to follow its dreams and that it very often ends by finding your treasure where you once started. Eleven Minutes – I know, its about a prostitute while she has some real interesting thoughts about what real love is about. Veronica decides to die – a corrupt situation about a girls attempt to a suicide.She did not succeed however it damages her heart and it gives her only a couple of days more to live. I still can’t decide if I liked the complete no expecting ending or not while it gives you a great journey in finding the truth and meaning of life. By the river Piedra I sat down and wept – this book grabbed me at exactly at the right time when I realized a work carrier is not the top of everything in life and that you are nothing without a family.
· Helen Fielding – this English journalist who has become an icon after publishing Bridget Jones diary and Bridget Jones – the edge of reason.
· All by Astrid Lindgren – This fairytales writer about Lina Longstocking, Emil in Katthult, and Madicken... you name them all. I read them when I was a child; I now read them for my child. A shame she did not get the Nobel price before she died.

1. Bridget Jones. Mom once said to me – I have realized you passion for Bridget because she is a copy of you (or was – I assume I have left my bad smoking, drinking and love stories habits behind and become a good mom and wife LOL)
2. James Bond – God I will miss Pierce Brosnan as Bond
3. The Thomas Crown Affair – same actor and gosh still very handsome! Renee Russo is also perfect in this and makes even a jetlagged Monday morning glamorous. Love her clothes in this movie!
4. Disney’s Christmas Greetings on Christmas – same program has been in the Swedish TV for over 40 years! It is a MUST to see yearly.
5. The Six Senses – I have never been a fan of Bruce Willis and here he overwhelmed me in this dramatic and fantastic movie.
6. Jägarna – "the Hunters" a Swedish movie with very much of north sense of humour and dramatic.

7. Monsters Inc, Shrek and Shark Tale – yeah I know its 3 but I love the characters in all 3 and could not decide which one to chose.

- I'm lost here - almost all my readers do not blogg. I will send some of them mail though :)

Thanks for playing along Maria.

I've read the book Eleven Minutes and it's very interesting. It definetly gives a different perspective to live doens't it?

I really like Bridget Jones Diaries also.

A horse whisperer huh? Have you seen the movie with Robert Redford?

At 11:03 AM, Bangsiland's Blog said...

Yes I have seen it and read the book too. Book is much better than the movie though...

Truly, we are talking about horse whispering very often, well, professionals rather prefer call it "natural horsemanship" where horse whispering is one part.

The theory is very simple and clear. You are "the Alfa" - in animals world this is the leader. Wolf, dogs, and wild horses they all have an Alfa leader who takes care of herd or flock. If you learn how your horse work it is quite simple to communicate with it. You see in the eyes and body language how your horse is feeling and what it wants.

Just like dogs can communicate with body language and assume you are also communicating with your cat, right?

Yes, it makes perfect sense to me. You either "connect" with animals or you don't. It's a part of your soul.
