I've been meaning to pick up a Stephen King novel, becuase the movies were good and usually novels are much better. So I'll look into that one KB.


Hmm...I forgot to mention another book, but I wouldn't recommend it unless you want laughs. This summer I worked at a camp and during staff circle, we read a trashy romance novel called, "A Pirate's Love" and laughed our asses off. It's funny as hell when you read that crap out loud!

renny, the books you're reading sound really good! A bit long, but very interesting.
I'm still on 'Great Expectations', I haven't been reading too fast lately.

I'm also reading "The Catcher In The Rye" by J.D.Salinger for my English class. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone, unless you like reading about a boy who calls everyone phoneys and complains about everything all the time.

^ Heh heh... They still sound interesting... :lol:

Also, thanks, I hope that it gets working too.... Sometimes, it does work, like now, but then it just f*cks up!


'Great Expectations' is taking forever, Pip just learned that he was going to London to be a gentleman...

I've also read the Lord of the Rings trilogy. It was incredibly long and I wouldn't recommend it if you are sick with the flu. I had the flu and I hallucinated seeing orcs in my room, it was scary and messed up! :?

Now I'm reading Jonathan Strange and Mr Norell by Susanna Clarke. Dunno if it's any good yet, too early to tell.

Edit- it's okay. Not the best book ever, but quite good.

I've been doing lots of reading. The last book I read was Moll Flanders and we just finished Sense and Sensability (not one of my more favorites of Jane Austen). We're nearly finished with Frankenstein. Our next book for brit lit is Great Expectations.

When I have spare time....leisure reading I'm currently doing is Phantom of the Opera (Gaston LeReux). Yeah, I don't get much leisure reading time! :(

I finished reading "The Fountainhead" by Ayn Rand. It was really long but I enjoyed it...except when they would go off on these monolouges about how evil socialism is. They believe in individuality, which is cool but when somebody talks for two and half pages with no pause...it gets exhausting. The characters were kind of frustrating as well. The ending was awesome though. The evil people, who were REALLY evil, got what was coming to them and Dominque and Howard finally got together. Hell yeah.

I'm kind of taking a break from reading right now because that book was huge and the words were as small as the words on this thread. *whew*

I'm reading Die Lange Grosse Wut for my German class. I don't understand it at all. The only thing I know, is that the story is about a bad marriage.

I'm also reading The Tarot Cafe vol.2 , it's a graphic novel about a woman who helps supernatural beings to live in the human world.

Olivia42 and JesusComplex: you guys are in college right? Have you taken any English classes? What did ya'll have to read?

Well I finished Frankenstein last night. I have reading for World Religions. We finished Black Elk Speaks and now we're reading The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying. It's really interesting about Buddhism. It gives quite a different prospective on the concept of death!
