To-day I got sms from Fahroe that my email to Ryan( about Ryan's well) has been printed by Reader's Digest in the Nov.,2001 issue. I look forward to read it as soon as I can get a copy.

Now, I am also looking forward to buy another book called Fire by Christian Junger. The book relates to his story about the war in Afghanistan prior to 11th September 2001.He is the writer who wrote The Perfect Storm.

To-day I read in NST about the power of USA press in influencing the people and the subsequently the governmnet. Dr Mahathir is right about it.That is what I also saw how the press propaganda machine is labouring everyday to justify US attack on Afghanistan.

That reminds me to read a book written by Jefferey Archer called the Fourth Estate. I bought this book in May 1996 while I was in London with my family for a holiday. Now, I see the reasons why UMNO and MCA want to have a controlling stake in the media (newspapers/tv) business.

ENIGMA : the novel

To-day I saw a book that I must buy from MPH Jaya Jusco Taman Maluri. It is entitled Enigma-The Novel written by Robert Harris. Before the movie comes to KL, I must read it. Enigma intrigued me when I read the book called Station X. It is the story about code breaking and deciphering work at Blecthley Park,England. By the way, there was a related movie called U 571.
