Hello Coull and Victoria :) I hope I never got called up for Jury Service, i'd probably be more nervous than your husband!

Today, I'm updating some reviews, then going on my Wii fit for a while, I've neglected it lately and really need to get back on it.

Should I create a Fiction Genre? I know that fiction covers a wide spectrum, but I don't know where I should post my review for The Lovely Bones. Would you say it's a Mystery? Or Crime?


message 10: by Victoria (new)

Victoria Pearson That is a hard one. I always struggle to work out what genre something is supposed to be (unless it is really obvious), and I read a lot of books that would fit into more that one genre. Maybe general fiction for misc books?


message 11: by Jennie (new)

Jennie  Coull | 42 comments lol I got called up to do it once but since my hubby is a correction officer im not aloud

yeah i think just a plan fiction folder would be good too, for all the ones that you just arint to sure about!

I think I'll make a fiction thread. I always find the Fiction section in a library quite funny, since most of the other books are fiction too. But maybe it's needed for books like The Lovely Bones, which doesn't have an obvious genre.

David Staniforth (davidstaniforth) | 34 comments If you were going to try and lable Lovely Bones, I think it would likely be paranormal thriller.

Anyone ever make the top reviewers list? I started getting on the top #100 weekly from the end of April, now stayed pretty much in the top #50 for the past month.

I've had a streak of really good books and now I've hit two really bad ones in a row. Urgh!

I've never made the top reviewers list. I don't think I write enough reviews in a week haha

I'm so behind on reading at the moment. A combination of being ill and being hooked on Netflix haha

It's hard to concentrate on reading anything when you're feeling rough, so just stick with the Netflix until you are on the mend.
Don't be away to long though:)

I'm feeling better now, and starting to get back on track with my books :) But Netflix is still calling to me haha

Sounds like you're developing a bad addiction there:)

I think I must be, it's mostly just watching Lost though :)


message 35: by David (new)

David Staniforth (davidstaniforth) | 34 comments I didn't watch lost; Dexter is my adiction.


message 36: by David (new)

David Brian (davidbrian) | 44 comments Rebecca wrote: "I think I must be, it's mostly just watching Lost though :)"

I gave up on Lost after season two. But then, while the final season was airing, I began watching the whole thing through from the beginning. Then once I'd caught up I watched the last season.

I got through the whole series in under 30 days. That's the way to watch a tv show:)

Dexter is a great show too.

Rebecca (rebeccas_books) | 340 comments Mod
Dexter is an addiction for me too. Netflix only has seasons 1-6 so I'm off to blockbuster for season 7 :)

Good. Because I couldn't possibly endorse your illegally downloading it from t'internet... and even if I did I wouldn't say so on here:)

I was going to say how eminently sensible you were to give up after series 2, then I saw that you had eventually watched the whole thing. Having watched every series, I felt so cheated when I saw the ending


message 40: by Jennie (new)

Jennie  Coull | 42 comments I gave up on lost about 2 eppys in to season 2, I just wasn't into it by then!!


message 41: by Jennie (new)

Jennie  Coull | 42 comments Rain, rain and more rain...roll on summer I say, so what is everyone up to this weekend??

Heatwave here - so chilling inside as it's too hot out!

Trying to finish Ripped: A Jack the Ripper Time-Travel Thriller but I'm really not enjoying it. Then a craft fair tomorrow.

I honestly guessed the ending after the very first episode. Truthfully.
