I have started reading quite much again lately, and I like it. I just finished reading the Twilight series, and I fell in love. And I also just gave up on reading the Swedish version of Pride and Prejudice, (which i was supposed to read for Swedish class) and watched the film again instead, much easier that way

Now I've just started reading Gossip Girl... again, and i think I might read Wuthering Heights soon, it seems good.

*cough twilight cough.....yeah.

I just read Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Practhett, interesting and funny. Worth a read if you can find it.

I also just read Barbarians an Alternative Roman history by Terry Jones. IT is really well informed and has interesting insights. Check it out if you are interested in the subject.

For any Jane Austen fans out there, I have to recommend Syrie James's "The Lost Memoirs of Jane Austen." I've had this book for a couple of years, but only just picked it up, and was amazed at how much I enjoyed it. I even teared up a bit at the end. A great read for the loyal Austen fan.

Just finished The Hobbit and enjoyed it enough to start on LOTR. Thing is I only ever read like three or four times a week and rarely for more than hour. Could take me a while.

Breakfast at Tiffany's by Truman Capote. The movie was more touching and the ending was more inspiring and happier but the book was more realistic and not so romantic.
I have no time to read, but a friend of mine borrowed me a book by Honore de Balzac, so I have to find some time...

I have a stack of books shouting to be read piled up on my nighttable...I'm such an idiot, if I can't seem to find time to read now; how will I manage once classes start? Gah.

I'm halfway through House of Spirits. Isabel Allende is not one of my favourites, I find her entertaining even if somewhat repetitive...still, I have most of her books (including the crazy Jaguar and Eagle series) but do cherish "Eva Luna". It's so honest and wonderfully weird. House of Spirits isn't bad, either, and the movie didn't do it justice...but I think I still prefer Eva

I've also begun The Angel's Game, by Carlos Ruiz Zafón.
I can't tell if it's as good as the first one, The Shadow of The Wind, which was simply brilliant and beautiful. (you must read it! At least give it a try, it's kinda like The Book Thief by Zusak (another of my all-time favourites), it's not for everybody but it deserves a shot.)

It's not really a sequel, but it appears to have some of the characters from The Shadow of The Wind, which was mainly what spurred me into purchasing this: I just have to know what happens to them!

I hope you used your Barnes and Noble membership for those Porcelain (omg, I need a new job)

I just wanted to say that I loved The Book Thief, and I own Shadow of the Wind, I just have to actually start reading it.

I just finished Trailblazer, the new biography on Sarah Palin and was quite impressed. It called her on things that she needed to be called on, and praised her accomplishments worth praising. And it was interesting because a good majority of the book was just about what went wrong on the campaign trail and mistakes that were made. I understand it's not an ideal cup of tea for a lot of people, but if it is, it's a good read.

I'm currently working on Samantha Powers Problem From Hell: America in the Age of Genocide. I'm loving it so far, which is wierd, for a book about genocide.

Barnes and Noble doesn't exist here :P
I would fill my house with books if it did. I get them either from Amazon.com (once or twice a year, since the shipping gets so expensive) or lent from a family friend who raids Amazon once a week.
It's hard to get books in English over here. I also want the "Bones" and "True Blood" seasons on DVD, but that would mean sweet-talking my father for ages until he agreed to lent me the money....I want a job so badly. Can I have yours?

Life without Barnes and Noble? My my, how do you survive?

I don't think True Blood is on DVD yet, but the first three seasons of Bones definitely are. Where are you located? I know Barnes and Noble online (BN.com) sends to some foreign countries...

I don't know...via amazon.com when I have the money?
I'm in Uruguay, SA. I doubt B&N ships stuff here, when we order stuff it's from a mailbox in Florida and then from Florida they swim towards here...yes, it is painfully slow. I'll check the site nevertheless

Sigh, so do I....let me know if you get your hands on something crazy good, please!

And rad? How?

I've never watched the Simpsons. I just don't find them funny.
Besides, it's not pronounced that way.


Edit: huh...this feels familiar. Probably I've been here and done this already...which not only makes you not funny, it also makes you unoriginal.

I'm reading Vince Flynn's books right now. I just finished the first book "Term Limits" last night, and started the second one in the series a few minutes ago. They're awesome, and I'm pretty much ready to be a sniper now lol
