yeah, thankfully i am not into that career........book reading is so boring........just not my thing........they say it improves the vocab but i never bothered to improve my vocab anyway........

I read about 3-4 books PER WEEK on my Kindle! :rofl_2: I also worked in higher education for over 35 years too... :innocent:

that is too much....... :hysterical: you must be so patient to read so much.......give me a big book and i will find new methods to skip paragraphs........

Yeah, I read a lot too. Was busy preparing for the Indian Foreign Service, so couldn't read many novels the last two years [but I did read a lot of textbooks, newspapers and magazines as part of my prep  ;-()]. But now that I've finally gotten selected, I've been reading a lot of fantasy and science fiction over the last two months.  :)

Unfortunately, it is so difficult to get books on tennis in India. And I don't have a debit/ credit card, so can't buy it online. I guess I'll have to wait till I go to the US or UK as a diplomat sometime in the next decade.  :(

Ahhhh, science-fiction, my favorite.

I used to be a voracious reader but read mostly magazines and catalogs now.

Just finished a historical novel by a local author about some local history during the late 1700's.

So little time now, that reading has fallen by the wayside.
Am sure there will be plenty of time for that when I am older like Dallas. :innocent:

Thanks, Start da Game.  :) The only torrent I've found so far is The Roger Federer Story (Quest for Perfection) [2007 edition] by Rene Stauffer. If you find any other torrents of tennis books, please do let me know.

Thanks for Agassi's autobiography, but I think the link for Sampras is not working.

I recently read Andre Agassi's book and I must say that I enjoyed every page of it!
It is so much better than The Quest for Perfection and Rafa.

RAFA - My Story by Rafael Nadal and John Carlin



Rafa - My Story.by.HaTeM.kooora

It was pretty good actually - liked the chapters written from Rafa's POV, especially about the Wimbledon final.

It is so much better than The Quest for Perfection and Rafa.


I think the reason why it is so good is that he has been so incredibly honest about his life - both the good things and the bad.
