Oh I have that one to read, haven't got around to it yet, but let me know if it's as good as Austens others.

Martha (marthas48) | 874 comments Mod
I'm reading Persuasion sometime this year.


message 5: by Nicolle (new)

Nicolle | 343 comments Mod
We can read it together if you want Martha. Message me when you're reading it. :)


message 6: by Martha (new)

Martha (marthas48) | 874 comments Mod
That would be great! I'd like to finish Little Dorrit first so maybe late April or May? I'm very slow with the bricks. LOL


message 7: by Nicolle (new)

Nicolle | 343 comments Mod
Any time that you want. We could have a buddy read type thing or 'persuade' (no pun intended) a group read of persuasion. :)


message 8: by Jessica (new)

Jessica I would be up for a Buddy read of Persuasion too :)


message 9: by Nicolle (new)

Teri-lynn (bookworm31) | 184 comments Mod
I'm in on the group read!


message 12: by Carrie (new)

Carrie | 19 comments I just finished Gone With the Wind...now onto Angela's Ashes. :)


message 13: by Carrie (new)

Carrie | 19 comments I'm still reading Angela's Ashes, which I'm enjoying very much, but I would love to be able to punch out the dad!


message 14: by Martha (new)

Martha (marthas48) | 874 comments Mod
I've read one by McCourt and didn't like it. Maybe I should try this one.


message 15: by Carrie (new)

Carrie | 19 comments I finished Angela's Ashes by Frank McCourt . It truly was an amazing and inspirational book that everyone should read. I highly recommend it!

Now onto Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging (Confessions of Georgia Nicolson, #1) by Louise Rennison when I get it. :)


message 16: by Carrie (new)

Carrie | 19 comments I'm currently reading Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging. So far, I'm not enjoying it very much because it seems too juvenile for me. The main character is a 14-year-old girl and I think that is the audience for the book. Maybe, I have been around too many teens lately to truly enjoy it. I'll keep plugging along.... :)


message 17: by Carrie (new)

Carrie | 19 comments I finished Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging. I'm giving it an okay rating. Pretty juvenile for me and I love most young adult books.


message 18: by Carrie (new)

Carrie | 19 comments I'm taking a break from reading off my list because I'm mostly studying now. I'm going to try to catch up on the books that I already started. :)


message 19: by Nicolle (new)

Nicolle | 343 comments Mod
It is a book which is most enjoyable when a mid teen. Luckily I read them when I was.
