Three western books come to mind.

The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien: It really opened up my imagination to this old fantasy world of Middle Earth that he created.

A Tale of Two Cities, by Charles Dickens. Tragedy, drama, action. Set in the French Revolution, this kind of terror was actually happening in those days. I think this kind of thing (being reported to the government for having the wrong opinion, then persecuted) also happened in China more recently, I believe. (1966-1976)

The Count of Monte Cristo, by Alexandre Dumas. A French drama with lots of betrayal, plotting, and suffering. Deservedly a classic.

as for Nonfiction, Eat Right for your Type, a diet book based on one's blood type, has helped me to lose 22 lbs. (10 kg) without too much trouble. Of course, being overweight is more of a problem for westerners who travel everywhere by car than for Chinese, or other city folk.

Think and Grow Rich Chinese edition, and I also bought an English original, but my English is still not good enough for it, it is not the point, I think. About this book, I don’t mean to exhibit what success I achieved after reading this book, maybe sometime further. What I want to talk about after reading this book is I should write down what I plan to do, so that I can focus on my goal. Each day it is possible that I deviate from my route, so I need something to draw me back.
