^^^^ everytime i see that book its always in the sale and i always go to pick it up but stop myself. ive heard mixed reviews on it. i will prob read it one day though.

linda i read so slow its unbelieveable but i do tend to read alot. the last 2 books i read though only had about 100 pages each so i got through them quite quick.

Is it about conjoined twins? I've read that book and I think I enjoyed it.

i've had catch 22 for the longest time but i still haven't read it. i haven't been reading much recently because i always seem to be drunk or too tired when i go to bed.
i read jarhead by swofford & it was megaaaa good. i didn't know he wrote another book.

Spoons 02-10-2008 12:47 AM

i didnt even know jarhead was a book until i read the blurb on the back and it said from the author of jarhead.

Jarhead is an awesome movie though

Just finished re-reading "Fugalaça" by Maíra Dias Gomes (half-biographic fiction about a girl who lost her father at the age of 11 and went trhough an intense adolescence "sex, drugs and rock n' roll" style)

Now I'm on the beginning of Nietzsche's "Beyond Good and Evil". Loving it.

I am currently reading The Shining by Stephen King. It's really good so far. I hope to watch the movie once I'm done with the book.

You all have amazing taste in books, I am very impressed. Currently reading Harvesting the heart by Jodi Piccoult but I wouldn't recommend it...it doesn't flow and draw you in the way her other books do.

Stolen Time by Sunny Jacobs

PixieHope. 05-10-2008 04:04 PM

I'm reading Atonement by Ian McEwan but I'm finding it quite slow at the minute.

Cathy 05-10-2008 06:17 PM

i just finished Tipping The Velvet by Sarah Waters which was immense.
am now reading one of my favourites - Elsewhere.

DaisyStar 05-10-2008 06:27 PM

I'm currently reading 'Choke' by Chuck Palahnuik...well nearly finished, and I only started it yesterday.
Also part way through (re-reading) 'The Time Travellers Wife', can't remember who it's by though.

Spoons 05-10-2008 07:02 PM
