The Readers' Corner
I have no patience to search the forums and see if this has already been done in the past.
If it has, I don't care, for it hasn't been done by me so it's different than the other one.
Anyway, as many of you don't know, I'm a big reader. Ok, I'm a certified bookworm. And so I thought it would be nice to have a readers' thread, instead of all the "do you know what perfume Keira wears" threads.
Words never killed anyone. Unless you're Socrates, or...wait, nevermind that.
So, it would be rather nice if people posted their favourite reading material, their latest purchases in that area, discussed books and authors and recommended them for others to read.
For example, at the moment I'm reading "The Mill on the floss", by George Eliot. I'm really liking her voice, and Maggie has won me over from the start. People have told me I should also purchase "Silas Marner" by her, and "Middlemarch" too.
I bought "Timbuktu" by Paul Auster but haven't started it yet, I've heard many different opinions on him and can't wait to make up my own.
So there you go. Discuss. And don't you dare ruin this with "I don't read" or "all I read are shampoo bottles" 'cause I'll voodoo you. If you don't read, why on earth are you viewing this thread?
"There are few people whom I really love, and still fewer of whom I think well. The more I see of the world, the more am I dissatisfied with it; and every day confirms my belief of the inconsistency of all human characters, and of the little dependence that can be placed on the appearance of either merit or sense." Elizabeth Bennet
