i liked it, its very short only 78 pages and the pages are very spread out.
i thought it was good, put a little smile on my face, but you can easly read it in 30 mins.

Junk is a good book!

I really want to read some of Virginia Woolf's books, my english teacher at A Level loved her.

i love getting books at charity shops because they are cheap and you can get so many for the normal price of one in somewhere like waterstones and you are helping the charity its a win win really.

im now reading The Berlin Wall-Frederick Taylor.
its not a uni book im reading it for fun. full blown geekage, meh i love history!!

i have 3 virginia woolf books now & i haven't read any! one is orlando though & i will have to read that in a couple of weeks for uni. woolf is one of my friends' favourite authors so i am intrigued/excited.

charity shops are really good yeah. i bought six (good condition) books today for 8.85 (i just worked it out, it wasn't difficult).

Im reading 'Sick and Tired: Healing the illnesses doctors cannot heal' which is written by a doctor and is about functional illnesses and how they are getting more and more diagnosed, despite organic illnesses being more and more easy to treat. It's very interesting and it's making me think about how a lot of physical problems are essential mental in nature, it's all good.

Change of Heart - Jodi Picoult

I'm still reading Torey Hayden- Silent boy. It's quiet good but, It's taking longer than expected. Usually I can read a Torey Hayden book within 24hours but I just can't seem to get into this one.

I love that book.

Arioch 05-11-2008 10:26 PM

I'm reading V.A.L.I.S. by Philip K. Dick.
Dick had mental health problems and VALIS is pretty much about the ideas stemming from them.

Nineteen Minutes - Jodi Picoult

^^^how many books do you read in the average month??

one_step_closer 06-11-2008 02:22 PM

:laugh: I have no idea!

i just read 'theg great gatsby' for english lit - i liked it.
kinda sad though. x

I finished 'Cut' by Cathy Glass a while ago. It was certainly interesting. Not my cup of coffee though...

I've just started 'The Gift' by Cecelia Ahern, and 'Count to ten' by Karen Rose. Both already amazing. Although it's the first Karen Rose book that I've found slightly triggering.

I'm currently reading The Naked Ape by Desmon Morris. It's a "Zoologist's Study of the Human Animal".


Spoons 06-11-2008 05:42 PM

^^^ that sounds quite interesting actually... is it any good so far?

mesmerized. 06-11-2008 07:20 PM

I just read 'Metamorphosis' (& whatever else was in the book) by Kafka. Love it <3.

No idea what to read next. I'm going book shopping tomorrow. Yayz :)
