2996 What makes a 5 star book for you? What makes you recommend a book to others?

It has to have some connection with me and it has to be a book I'd recommend to everyone and not just someone with the same kind of interests. Other than that there is no criteria.

2996 Tanja - THANKS!!!

I did download the Goodreads apps but haven't had a chance to search around. I'll try this next time I connect via wi-fi.

THANKS AGAIN!!! Will be so much easier than reading the printed xerox copy. :)

2996 Sheila - can you download those on iPod Touch and not directly to computer? I know there is an app for Goodreads, I wonder if I can get it that way.

2996 I'm definitely a downloader of books (a collector or hoarder you may say). But I still prefer to read an actual paperback book.

I do read something occasionally on my iPod Touch so the downloads aren't going to waste. I've yet to pay for a book though. Maybe one day...just not yet.

2996 My all-time FAVORITE is from Spain - it is licorice with a creamy filling. Can't get it anywhere else. I've searched. LOVED getting it when I was in Spain but that was over a decade ago. I just recently had someone from work go over to the UK and one her her team from Spain was meeting up with her. She was so kind to get me some. I felt like I was in heaven.

My favorite from US is Reese's PB Cups.
2996 Question - my library doesn't carry the first book in the series but does carry book 2 (The Weed that Strings the Hangman's Bag). Can you read book 2 without reading book 1 first? Will I be all confused?

I picked it up from library but will return it if it is "necessary" to read them in order. I don't want ot miss anything from book 1.

2996 Don't go by the reviews of the books. Form your own opinion.

2996 What is the appeal of the book for so many girls and women? Don't know the appeal besides just being a good story.I read it post movie viewing. I never read it as a kid but finally picked it up when I was in Spain (the classics were the cheapest books to buy)

Have you a favorite movie version? - the one with Winona Ryder (SP?)

Who is your favorite character? Jo - she's so spunky

Your least favorite character? I don't think I have one.

2996 No. Start with the first and read thru the series. I actually liked all the books.

2996 Not thrilled with their choice for male lead.

2996 I work the opposite way. Once I've visited a place, I have to read all about it (fiction).

2996 I have oodles of books. Sometimes it is chosen for me (if a book becomes available at the library). A lot of times though I just pick based on what I feel like reading at the time. Sometimes I need a break from "heavy" stories so I pick up a chick lit book. Other times I feel the need to return to a series I'm in the middle of.

2996 I SWEAR that the movie was also based on a book of fiction. I don't recall ever reading the Letters to Juliet book listed above but the story sounds sooooo familiar.

So maybe some author wrote a book based on the Letters to Juliet book?

2996 Take a break from reading books. Read some magazines. Develop a new hobby. Watch tv. You'll eventually go back to reading.

Normally I'd suggest switching up the genre but it looks like you've tried that already.

2996 (hee-hee - I see I posted before!) :)

I don't read her stuff anymore. Too predictable of a writing style. She writes shocking endings that I can now see coming from miles away.

My Sister's Keeper was the first book I read by her. That one I will love because I didn't expect the ending. Then I read additional books by her and became familiar with her writing style. I don't bother with her stuff anymore but I do recommend her for people that haven't read her stuff before.

2996 Books are better because it contains so much more detail and/or backstory. Those are usually removed from the movie due to time constraints.

2996 My reading time has been severely limited so far this year. I've only read three books (at least three that I finished in 2010).

Based on stars, my "fav" has to be the 2nd book in Mysterious Benedict Society. And that certainly won't last as I'm bound to read something I enjoyed much more.

2996 Any book where I marked as "read" but have zero stars. Those are usually books I didn't finish because they were so bad.

A few one stars rank with the bad but those I did finish.

2996 I'm a faithful Nintendo DS user. Love the portability of it and if sales are going on at stores, I can get some good deals.

I was recently turned on to Farmville in Facebook. That kind of geekiness is right up my alley.

2996 How does one use Compare Books feature?
