Zakiya LadyWings (zladywings) Diana, I hope you enjoy Lord of the Flies! I really need to reread that one.


message 11: by Diana S (last edited Sep 16, 2013 10:49PM) (new)

Diana S It's been ages since I've read it last. I'll be reading Lord of the Flies for a book club in November. I know I'm going to disliked reading about Piggy! I think that's what they called him. It's so sad.:(

And Congrats Zakiya! on your team winning 1st place in Words with Friends.
Y'all were an awesome team! :D


message 12: by Zakiya (new)

Zakiya LadyWings (zladywings) Yep, I think that was his name. I hated that part of the book. I remember when it got to the last few pages I was sick to my stomach.

And thanks!!! It was a hassle with school, but I'm glad I could pull it off. It was pretty great for my first time ever playing. I can't wait until the next round.
