1218 I have started reading the book and am really enjoying it so far. I am on page 103 and so far it is very intriguing. I can't wait to finish it.

1218 I finally got my book from the library and can start reading it. I've heard it is very good so I look forward to reading it.

Tell-Tale Heart is the greatest.

Loved The Book Thief. I love the idea of Death narrating. It made me realize that without Death we would not have Life. Sorry to sound philosophical but it's true.

I really enjoyed Lisey's Story. I thought it was a nice change from King's usual stuff. I agree that it was very strange though.

Okay, don't ever read this book. It totally sucked.

1218 I am currently reading "Brother Odd" by Dean Koontz. It is the third in the Odd series and of course is wonderful like most Koontz. He rarely writes a book I don't enjoy. I just read a book called "My Phantom Husband" for my live book club. Has anyone read it? If so please let me know what you thought. I thought it was very ambiguous and didn't really care for it much.

1218 Just bought "My Phantom Husband" from Amazon. It's good so far. I got upset though because I paid like 10 dollars for it and then a friend of mine got the same book from Amazon for like 65 cents. She had to pay 5 dollars for s & h though.

1218 I didn't really care for this book. I thought it was sweet that he found someone to believe him but it hard for me to get into this book. It was kind of dull.

1218 I just checked out Water for Elephants yesterday so I will probably start it soon. I'm reading another book right now so as soon as I finish it I will be ready.

1218 My most recent splurge is "Slum Dog Millionaire." It is what my 'live' book club chose to read. I have it lent out now though so I haven't read it.
Mar 14, 2009 07:48AM

1218 I am planning on checking it out as soon as I am done with "The Appeal." I've heard it is a great book so I look forward to it.

1218 I am reading "Nineteen Eighty-Four." I love it. I am almost done and all I want to do is get on my hands and knees and thank God that our government is not really like that. It's pretty scary.

1218 I have heard that "Water for Elephants" is really good. I look forward to reading it. I don't know much about "Angela's Ashes" so hopefully I'm in for a treat.

1218 I think I suggested this one for Feb. but here goes.

I have had times when I read a book and hated it. I read it later when I'm in the mood for that kind of book and really enjoy it. I'm glad I'm not the only one out there like that.

"The Kite Runner" by Khaled Hosseini or, also catergory 1, "Eat, Pray, Love" by Elizabeth Gilbert.

I just felt like I didn't connect with the characters. I have been recently informed though that I am a moody reader and if I read it again later I might enjoy it. It has happened before so maybe I'll try it again. Who knows?
