Ashley (readerandwriter) | 415 comments I will also be reading Crank in November Janet :)


Silvia (silverware) | 417 comments Ashley I am in the middle of New Moon right now! I bought it yesterday! And Im also reading Emma by Jane Austen, but that's a slower read for me.

Jamie (The Perpetual Page-Turner) (perpetualpageturner) | 4407 comments Mod
I just finished reading a book for school.. The Things They Carried...it was actually really good. now i have to write a paper on it and do a presentation with my group..who i might add..are a bunch of morons..(minus 2 girls)..i get stuck with the people who don' know how to read books and actually refuse to read it!!

haha i promise im not really that mean. im just annoyed that im the only one reading it and doing work for it.


Ashley (readerandwriter) | 415 comments Thats totally understandable Jamie :)


Lauren (misslaurenwilk) | 425 comments I just started on the Birth of Venus, by Sarah Dunant. It seems pretty good so far. I'm ready for some action though!!


Anastasia (spencerafreeman) yay! you finished the things they carried jamie.. i'm glad you ended up liking it... its been my mission to try and convert people to liking that book haha. first I made my boyfriend read it and he liked it- he doesnt even like to read! now i'm letting my friend read it and he said so far its good.


Anastasia (spencerafreeman) for people reading/already read the Twilight series, what did you think of it? I've been wanting to read it but I'm on the fence still- I'm not that into vampire premises, but I'd be willing to give it a try if it really is as good as people say it is... Is it?


Kelsey (KelseyNicole) ahhhh LOVE IT. im so addicted. hahaha literally i carry the books in my car with me so i can read them whenever and whereever.!! you could say im totally "bitten"


Ashley (readerandwriter) | 415 comments I'm currently working the 3rd installment. Its wonderful Anastasia. It so good it is addicting. There are a number of Twilight fan groups here on goodreads. You should check the member number. Everyone loves Twilight. It is the hottest series on the market right now.



Kelsey (KelseyNicole) Yes it is..im in i think 3 twilight groups. hahaha

I'm with you Anastasia..im on the fence still too. I might just have to give in.


Kelsey (KelseyNicole) ive actually always had a wild imagination and have been very open to those kinds of things. so it has never really been a problem for me.

Kelsey (xtoloveistolivex) | 534 comments Oh, Twilight. We had a Breaking Dawn release party at my Barnes and Noble, and there were many, many shrieking teenage girls. The series isn't bad. Anywho, I just finished reading "Hell House", which I loved. It was an awesome haunted house story!


Kelsey (xtoloveistolivex) | 534 comments Oh, and I did start reading House of Leaves, which is just pretty much insane, but it's good.


Kelsey (KelseyNicole) haha sweet what is it about?


message 22: by Jamie (The Perpetual Page-Turner), The Founding Bookworm (new)

Jamie (The Perpetual Page-Turner) (perpetualpageturner) | 4407 comments Mod
ahh I want to read House of Leaves SO bad.


Lauren (misslaurenwilk) | 425 comments Okay... I'm almost finished with The Birth of Venus by Sarah Dunant and it is already one of my faves!!! A MUST READ for all gals. It's awesome! But then again, my guilty pleasure is historical fiction! :)


Kelsey (KelseyNicole) oooo i love historical fiction!!


Anastasia (spencerafreeman) Okay, so you girls know I caved in and bought Twilight this weekend. Haha. I'm only on page 15 I think right now, but it's drawn me in.. I'm eager to just dive right in to it, but since I'm at work I have to wait...
I brought it with me, though, so when my lunch break comes around you know what I'll be doing! (aside from eating, of course)


Kelsey (KelseyNicole) haha yay!!! im so proud!! Trust me you will be addicted. My mom just begged me for the 2nd the other day. she started reading them on saturday..she is going insance already trying to read them all. hahahah Im already "Bitten" so i cant get any worse. lol


Anastasia (spencerafreeman) "bitten," Haha that's funny Kelsey.. I'm sure once I get into it I'll join the masses and won't be able to put it down. I'll let you know what I think as I get into it :)


Kelsey (KelseyNicole) okay you have to!! That will be your goal in life..to tell me what you think of twilight. lol

Jamie (The Perpetual Page-Turner) (perpetualpageturner) | 4407 comments Mod
oh great. I think i am the only one in this group who hasn't read them! :) I guess I will have to succumb to Twilight so that I'll have something to talk about :)


Kelsey (KelseyNicole) yup its a must. lol


Anastasia (spencerafreeman) Kelsey, I just thought you'd want to know that I am in LOVE with this book! I stayed up last night even though I had a headache AND had to get up early and read... I read at least 200 pages and I had to force myself to put it down to go to sleep... I can't wait to crack it open again!!! I hope the rest of the series is just as good..


Kelsey (KelseyNicole) hahaha YAY!!! I told you so! Im so happy you love it!! Trust me it is sooo addicting!!!! I carry the books in my car so i can read them anytime i want!! lol


message 33: by Anastasia (last edited Oct 09, 2008 02:45PM) (new)

Anastasia (spencerafreeman) Soooooo.... I finished Twilight! AND I went out and bought New Moon before I was completely done w/Twilight so I would have it to read when I was done. After I finished Twilight last night I cracked open New Moon late last night and I couldn't stop reading! I had to make myself put it down to go to sleep and now I'm on pg 175 of it! Haha, GREAT recommendation, Kelsey. I'm hooked!

oh boyy..i'm doomed. haha i can't even open it then..i just bought it..i caved in..and i'm sure i will devour it like you did Anastasia..but i can't haha..i have so much school work to do..that it would be SO bad if I started reading it.


Kelsey (KelseyNicole) hahaha thats what i did with all 4 books. read them all in one day one after the other..im so glad your bitten now =D


Ashley (readerandwriter) | 415 comments Good for you Anastasia :)


Annette | 39 comments I just started the Book Thief. I am so excited because I have been wanting to read this book for a really long time and everybody keeps telling me how good it is!

Jamie (The Perpetual Page-Turner) (perpetualpageturner) | 4407 comments Mod
ahh you have to tell me how the Book Thief is because I have it on my TBR list and I'm wondering if I should read it sooner rather than later! :)

Sooo many books..so little time!


Janet Annette and Jaime-
I want to read the Book Thief. My step-mom says it's so good! Maybe we should nominate it as one of our group reads!! It sounds great!


Kelsey (KelseyNicole) Jamie i know how you feel!! i swear i have told everyone i know just to get me a gift card to books a million this year..just so i can buy all the books i want!!!


Annette | 39 comments I think it would be a great group read. I can already tell it has so many layers that I will want to read it again.


Ashley (readerandwriter) | 415 comments I read the Book Theif and it is incredible


Amanda (mouser083) | 109 comments I finished The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency and now I'm halfway through Abundance. I like them both. Easy reads.

Ashley (readerandwriter) | 415 comments Your boyfriend does understand the value of reading books :)

Jamie (The Perpetual Page-Turner) (perpetualpageturner) | 4407 comments Mod
unfortunately he doesn't..haha..i'm working on him though. I just got him a David Beckham autobiography that he said he would read..that's a big step for him. haha. the plus side to this is tha david beckham is mighty fine..so i won't mind looking at the cover of the book.




Janet Haha. My boyfriend used to NEVER read and would make fun of me for reading and how much money I would spend on books. Now he has a really boring job and reads all the time. It's pretty funny!


Leila (softlyblush) | 31 comments i have started on jane eyre :D
