message 1: by Fiona (new)

Fiona (bookcoop) The idea of this game, is that... you recommend a book and the person below you basically replies: yes if they agree, no if they don't (and give reasons why if you wish) or don't know if you don't know the book. :)

I'll go first, obviously. See if this works!

The Stand - Stephen King


message 2: by Monica (new)

Monica (monnieh722) Yes! I read it in high school and have been wanting to read it again! One of the best - and scariest - books I've ever read!

I'll stay with Stephen King and say:

The Green Mile.


message 3: by Heather (new)

Heather (hsditto) I'll say "yes" even though I haven't read the books, but I LOVED the movie! I need to read the books...
