758 Like Melissa, I would definitely recommend Emily Giffin. I think she's an excellent chick lit author :)

I agree--people either hate it or they love it. Even on an individual basis...there were things I didn't like about it when I read it that made me want to hate it...but the things I liked about it ultimately outweighed all of that.

Anyway...I finished The Shunning - Beverly Lewis yesterday and thought it was a nice, leisurely read.

Today, I'm starting Unaccustomed Earth - Jhumpa Lahiri and New Moon - Stephenie Meyer.

758 Thanks Barbara! I'm enjoying them so far. One of the reviews included in the book says that reading her is "like slipping into an old robe, curling up on the sofa in front of a cheerful fire and sipping a nice hot cup of tea"...from what I've read of this book, I think that is the perfect way to describe her! My gramma is a huge fan of hers, so she recommended her to me a while ago, and I'm looking forward to checking out all that she's written.

758 I'm just about finished with Just After Sunset by Stephen King and then I'm going to start Rosamunde Pilcher's Flowers in the Rain.

758 Deborah--That's so exciting! I'm so jealous! I love it in Pittsburgh, and I would love to live there some day. I'm from Altoona, so I go to Pittsburgh every chance I get. I was actually just there over Christmas to see The Nutcracker at the Benedum. It was so beautiful and it was such a treat because I used to go every year when I was little.

758 Angie and Summer -- You're most welcome for the recommendation :) I love it--it's such a great website for making pictures avatar-worthy!

758 Lori--that's so funny that you say that because that is exactly what I've been planning to do once this semester starts. I like working ahead, too, so I think I'm going to get the first two weeks' worth of work done the first week so that I have more free time to myself and so that if a bigger project/paper/what-have-you should come up, I'll have more time to work with.

758 My avatar is a picture of me that I took one day while I was messing around with my at-the-time new camera. Then I found this really great website ( where you can add all sorts of effects to your photos, hence the snowflakes and the snowman and the text. Oh, and that song is one of my FAVORITE Christmas/winter songs :)

758 Thanks for the tips, Lori! I'll have to try them out! I totally understand what you mean about a sleeping schedule. I work much better in the morning than late at night, so I'll go to sleep around 11:30 and then wake up early to get work done. I'll have to try reading for a half hour before I go to bed. And it's weird that I never thought of reading in the hallway before class because I'm also the type of person to show up early for class, so I'll have to give it a try. Thanks again! :)

I agree! Are you from Pittsburgh? I love it there!

758 whichwaydidshego?, I totally understand about the downsizing thing. Being a sophomore in college without a place of my own, my parents usually hound me about having too many books (oh, please)! My bookshelf is crammed full, though, and many of the books I haven't read. My problem is that I feel like each book deserves a chance to be read, so I need to go through and read them all. Usually what I do is that if I read a book and don't particularly like it, that's when it's up for grabs.

758 That's interesting that you say that about your second time going to college--I swore to myself that no matter what this semester (which starts on Monday), I'm going to take a little time to myself every day to read something...whether it's a chapter or even just a paragraph. I just know that I need something to maintain my sanity!

And yeah, those all-nighters are definitely really rough. I've taken 3 or 4 hour exams after pulling all-nighters and somehow miraculously pulled A's. Don't ask me how I did it, though, because I still have no clue--hehe :)

758 whichwaydidshego?, It honestly depends on where they will take them. Most of the time, I donate to my local library, other times I donate to places like Goodwill or Salvation Army because I know people that will go through the shelves there looking for books to read. Then there are times when a friend of mine will say that they want them. So it all just depends :)

758 Did anyone else see tonight's episode of Law & Order: SVU? It was amazing!

758 I'm going to try to read the books on my five-shelf bookshelf and kinda re-organize things. I like donating books that I don't want anymore, so I'm going to try and make some more room. I really want to read all of these books, though, because I have a bad habit of buying more and more books without reading them, so I end up really behind on my to-read list!

758 I'm still on my Harry Potter kick, having just finished the series the other day. I finished The Tales of Beedle the Bard, which I thought was a cute little book. Now I'm starting The Sorceror's Companion (kinda geeky, but whatever), which is kinda like an encyclopedia giving background info on stuff that JKR included in her books. I'm really looking forward to starting it today!

758 I'm excited for this! I've never read anything Jane Austen (for shame, I know!), but I've been wanting to so badly! I suppose this will be the perfect way to start! :)
Jan 13, 2009 07:16AM

758 Thanks everyone :) And I'm so glad that some of you know where I'm coming from being a college student and all! I'm trying to maintain my sanity this semester by taking some time to myself each day and reading something for fun!
