1218 The number 44 is missing so I am hoping it's Roots by Alex Haley since I think it's a great book that is a classic. I hope it makes some list.

1218 Oh, I just read this post and I am so excited to share something that I hate. The word is "macabre".

All horror and gruesome murder mystery writers use this word to describe the scene or the violent death...but as an avid CSI and Law and Order watcher, I have never heard this word used. Just say gross, murderous, gruesome or something like it.

The other expression I can't stand is "Fair enough." If you don't agree with something, you don't have to say "Fair enough" and then argue your position. What does that mean? Who Cares? Why?

1218 1- Who is your favorite character and what novel were they in? Becky Bloomwood from Shopaholic and series by Sophie Kinsella. Sad to say that I relate to her! She's hilarious.

2- Which book made you laugh the loudest? Baptists at the Barbeque by Robert Farrell Smith

3- Which novel made you cry the hardest? (c'mon boys, dont be shy!) The Band of Brothers by Stephen Ambrose. Wonderfully emotional

4- Which Antagonist pissed you off the most and what novel were they in? Javert in Les Miserables

5- Which novel left you scratching your head wondering what the heck had just happened? The Time Traveler's Wife. I still think about that book.

6- Which book are you most glad to have read? The Great Divorce by CS Lewis

7- Which book do you think was the biggest waste of your money? The Good Earth. I will never get that 7 bucks back!

8- Which book scared you the most? The Innocent Man by John Grisham. Very realistic.

9- List a novel that you read because of all the great reviews and hype it got, but left you wondering what all the buzz was about. Twilight. It got better but it hyped up too much for what it delivered.

10- List a novel that others may not have heard of, but that you really liked, and would like us to take a peek at. My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult.

1218 I have been catching up on reading all the classics but the one I would like to read is Shakespeare. I would love to read all the plays and then go see them.

1218 I agree with Angel. It's so fun to have a place to see what someone else thinks about a book. I love the rating system and all the differing opinions.

1218 I just recently decided to clean off some shelves. But I did have a pile that I couldn't part with. The Illustrated versions of DaVinci Code and Angels and Demons by Dan Brown, 3 weeks with my Brother by Nicholas Sparks, Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom, and Corker by Anya Bateman. These are my all time favorites that I can read over and over.
