I'm trying to help my best friend to refresh her english with the book. It doesn't have huge vocabular so it shouldn't be too hard to read for someone who doesn't know the language well.

^Matilda is also my favorite childhood book, I have a rather worn copy that I pull out for comfort now and again! Love the film aswell even though it is rather different!

A Long Way Down was a good book, I like the dry humor that Nick Hornby has!

I really like that, but the the nearer it got to the end the more baffled I was about her brother - be interesting to know what you think!

I'm now reading - Look at Me by Jennifer Egan.

That is what I am reading too currently.

I just finished reading "Staying Fat for Sarah Byrnes". It was actually a very enjoyable read, and I'm glad that its more then just an "Issues in High-school" kind of book.

I'm quite puzzled too. Would have been nice to have a clear explanation about what was happening with him.

Now reading Ju-On - Kei Ohishi.

To anybody that has read 'The Help' by Kathryn Stockett - is it as good as the film adaptation? Would you recommend it?

Rodolphus 19-02-2012 03:55 PM

Currently on with LOTR: The Two Towers, Harry Potter & the Order of the Phoenix (again) and Have You Seen Her -Karen Rose (again).

I can't stand only reading one book at a time xD

I think I enjoyed them both equally.

Yes! The book is quite good, perhaps a bit better than the movie. I was really pleased with how the movie turned out, though. Both are worth the time.

I am reading 'Crying For Help' by Casey Watson.
It's pretty good. My house mate lent it to me. They also lent me 'Sing You Home' by Jodie Picoult which is my next book to read.

Saxophone 19-02-2012 08:24 PM

Just began 'Starter for ten' by David Nicholls because i enjoyed 'one Day'. So far it's alright.

Oh and I always have a Harry potter book on the go just because...it's Harry Potter.

ParaParaParadise 20-02-2012 04:18 PM

I'm (still) reading Why It's Kicking Off Everywhere by Paul Mason. It's very interesting; unfortunately I have the concentration span of a gnat :sad:

Laura2.0 22-02-2012 08:16 PM

The lovely Bones - Alice Sebold

I should try to actually finish books. From now on I'm only going to start a new book if I finished a book first.

prospektsmarch 23-02-2012 03:55 AM

I started reading Rascal by Sterling North today and will probably finish that in the morning. So far I have enjoyed it.

I have some old pony books by Jean Slaughter Doty, Josephine Pullein-Thompson and Ruby Ferguson ordered and they should arrive in the mail soon. Continuing on the theme of children's literature, I'm making my way through Laura Ingalls Wilder's books. I've read bits and pieces and adaptations over the years but I had only read the first two in their entirety. I just finished Farmer Boy so whenever I can get to the library I'll pick up the rest.

I'm having trouble concentrating on reading right now so i'm only on the second chapter or something. I only chose to read it because it's by Torey Hayden. Will let you know what I think when I get further through it.
