I do bro, I read Non-medical books for leisure.
Although I don't stick to one type of book, all the books which come across me I would like to read as long as it doesn't contain symptoms and signs.
Medicine is where you run from reading to another reading!.( I like Medicine) ;D

hi Sumayya, i did not read those books u mentioned,but yeah Martin Luther is good i heard, i read excerpts of Malcom X,but the African-American politicians seem a bit more complicated esp those who used to fight the slavery... but a friend of mine on the Oprah Club book said she saw the new book of Barack Obama and it was hilarious...but i told her i gonna read if he wins the race!...
  its good to exchange ideas on leisure reading.... let me know the kind of books u like to read and may be point few that i read.. as bedtime story...the alchemist is good...it will make u look for your own destiny just like the character ,the shepherd turned alchemist,good omens and bad omens....

Mohamed, I used to like reading other books more than science books in my undergraduate but time restricted me to stick with medicine books now. I read some of the books mentioned above including Martin Luther King life, Malcol X, Steve Biko, Nelson Mandella, and more but the book that I liked the most was "Road to Mecca" of Mohamed Asad. I reccommend this book to anyone who like reading. There are some medical thriller books that you might like including coma, mindbend, invasion,chromosome six,and so on. These novels are very interseting in that they will help you read in your leisure while you still feel that you are in the world of medicine. They are all written by "Dr. Robin Cook", and ophthalmologist who is in Massechussets. See also, the Surgeon, and the donor for another author. There are more and I can give the list. But you can also do your own search through the web. The other good author of such medical thriller books is Michael Palmer, also, a physician.

Those of you who like reading, I would suggest this book "ROAD TO MECCA" Written by Mohamed Asad. Once you start you will not stop reading it. Besides it is talking about crucial historical moments that muslim world passed mixed with the narrations from the writer's life in both Europe, Middle east and other Asian countries.

I have read Dreams from my father about 2 years ago now...it's a very good book...I highly recommended it. Since reading the book I feel like I know Obama personally....he really opens up.
Malcolm X's book is a must read. It's really interesting finding out about how he discovered Islam and how his life before Islam was.
