A-Z Book List: X for X

When one of my close friends moved to another country he left all his books with me. And most of his books were from the authors Issac Asimov and Terry Pratchett. I haven’t read any books belonging to these authors, ever. Primary reason: Science fiction. I am not even interested in those movies in the first place. But he was trying to convince me to give it a try and read a couple of Issac Asimov and then judge. Same with Terry Pratchett. Too geeky for me I guess. But now that I don’t have a book that I have read whose title starts with the letter X, I guess I would go with one of Issac Asimov’s which I have with me, but haven’t read.

Name: X stands for Unknown by Isaac Asimov

Genre: Non-fiction, Essay, Science

It is an essay. Now  I am sure I am going to have this with me for ever and not read a single line. But to be honest, it wouldn’t kill me to try and read it. But again, I should get into that zone to even try that. It is a non-fiction and mostly related to science. Hmm.. (sigh) Why aren’t there any books which are starting with the letter X. Do you know of one which is fiction and which is also good? Let me know.

    I’ve read i, Robot by Issac Asimov only because I needed to read it for school. Other than that I’ve never read anything else by him or by Terry Pratchett, though I heard her books were good.

      Good to know that 🙂 My friend keeps asking me to try at least one. Somehow I am not getting into that mood 😉

    Terry Pratchett is actually more satire & fantasy than science fiction & his books can be very funny. He didn’t write anything starting with x though & sorry but I don’t have any suggestions for this difficult letter.
