Mairead | 50 comments Hi Michelle! :)
Wow, a published author, that's amazing. Congratulations.
I' reading the great Gatsby now, which is just amazing. I didn't like it the last time I read it, but this time, it's just hit me like a freight train.
But afterward I was going to move onto Dickens, hence this slightly rambling message. :P
Hope you like Goodreads

Paul (taytothief) Hey Michelle welcome to the group. Fair play on getting your poetry published. I'm not a fan of poetry myself (the school curriculum and teaching methods are undoubtedly to blame in my case) but best of luck with it!

Interesting post, I did not like Gatsby the first time... I was told by a fan I have to read it again. Its in my list.

Mairead | 50 comments I loved Gatsby. It was billiant. Well-written, thoughtful, and the end was shocking. :) Hope you like it.

Mairead | 50 comments Don't read spoilers, just enjoy it. :) I knew something that happened, but didn't know how, and even then, I nearly fell over from shock.

Tanya (kate47) Hi all, I'm Tanya, I'm a new member to goodreads.com
I obviously love reading but not a great fan of sci fi but will read anything else. My favourite books to date are 'The wasted vigil' by Aslam Nadeem, 'The gift of rain' by Tan Twan Eng and 'My name is light' by Elsa Osorio. Books I intensely disliked are 'The road' by Cormac Mc carty and 'Shes come undone ' by Wally Lamb
