Cassandra | 5832 comments Great job, Sherri! Any recommendations?


message 5: by Sherri (new)

Sherri (sherfin) | 30 comments the bookseller is pretty good. I also liked Willie Nelsons book...humorous.


message 6: by Sherri (new)

Sherri (sherfin) | 30 comments Added two more books to the first post.
Both were good...
Out of the Blue moved right along..

Emily (emilyesears) | 513 comments Had you read The Great Gatsby before? I've had to read it for school, twice--once in high school and once in college.

I haven't read any of the other books you've read, but I've heard about several of them on youtube. Did you enjoy Landline? I've seen mixed reviews.

Sherri (sherfin) | 30 comments I don't think I read it in High School.
Landline was good.....I'm sure I have read better books but it was an ok read. I gave it 3 stars. I am pretty strict with my ratings. It has to be pretty good to get a 4 and very, very good to get a 5...

I need to put my ratings on the books I read.


message 9: by Sherri (new)

Sherri (sherfin) | 30 comments I have increased my total books read for the year to be 60.


message 10: by Emily (new)

Emily (emilyesears) | 513 comments I'm the same way Sherri--I rate 90% of the books I read 3 stars. 4 stars is a book I loved enough to want to reread it and 5 stars is a book that changed my life in some way.
