12544 It took me weeks to get over this book. I read it over the Christmas break - not the cheeriest of books for that time of year. I found it harrowing and heartbreaking but it was so very beautifully written that I couldn't put it down. I did sob my way through the last couple of hours but I think that's a sign of how well she brought the characters to life.

12544 I loved The Moonstone. I also toyed with putting Monte Christo on my list. Happy reading!

I think they're going to be first to be ticked off the list. But then again....

12544 I'm almost at the end of The Summer Without Men by Siri Hustvedt and I just don't want it to end. She's a relatively new discovery for me but I absolutely adore her writing. Highly recommended.

12544 Thanks everyone. I'm definitely sold on the Kindle Paperwhite. Has anyone got any experience with the Kobo and how it compares to the Kindle?

12544 I'd like to nominate I Am Pilgrim by Terry Hayes.

It's getting rave reviews in my Twitter timeline!

12544 My beloved Kindle is on its way out so I'm in the market for a new e-reader. I'm trying to decide between another Kindle or the Nook. Does anyone have any experience with both and is there one that you favour?
