  1. I just started a book my boss bought me called Jemima J. its by Jane Green and its possibly one of the best Chick Novels I've ever read... Including The Devil Wears Prada. I can't get my nose out of it. I'm going back to my reading corner soon, but I needed food, and I don't like trying to eat while I'm reading. :)

    I just finished The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand, The Lost Boy by Dave Pelzer, and We The Living by Ayn Rand. Now I'm reading Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte.

    Now i am reading Othello written by William Shakespeare. The work revolves around four central characters: Othello, his wife Desdemona, his lieutenant Cassio, and his ensign Iago. Because of its varied themes — racism, love, jealousy and betrayal - the play remains relevant to the present day, and is still quite popular. I like this very much.

    Shakespeare is ALWAYS relevant, as is Chaucer. :) All of human nature is contained therein.

    Is Return in the middle of a series. It was the only one I saw at the library that didn't say book 2 or 3 or something. I have only read 1 of hers before and I really enjoyed it. It was When Joy Came to Stay. The didn't have a whole lot of her books at the library, so I was really hoping this one was not in the middle of a series.

    I finished The Road by Cormac McCarthy that Jess sent me :D
    I loved it, it's a little slow in the beginning, but once it picks up it's amazing.

    I also finished The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini. I literally could not put this book down, definitally one of my favorite books now.

    I also read Running with Scissors by Augusten Burroughs. It was okay, there were funny parts but I don't think I'd read it again.

    Now I'm reading Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen for my book club.

    Yes, it's the 3rd book in the Redemption series. Which then goes onto the Firstborn series, then the Sunrise series.

    They are all very good books, I couldn't put them down. Definitely worth buying, imo, if you can't find them at your library, and like Return.

    I've been reading a lot lately. The most recent books I've read are:

    The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand
    We The Living by Ayn Rand
    A Child Called It by Dave Pelzer
    The Lost Boy by Dave Pelzer
    One Child by Torey Hayden
    The Tiger's Child by Torey Hayden
    I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou
    For the Love of a Dog by Patricia McConnell (I started it a long time ago, but just recently found it after I thought it was gone forever.)

    I loved all of them.

    I've also reread Old Yeller by Fred Gipson.
    Right now I'm reading Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte and rereading The Dog Who Wouldn't Be by Farley Mowat.

    I ordered 5 books from Amazon on Friday and I hope they get here soon!
    I want to get Control Unleashed, but it's not at my Borders and on Amazon it's $31 not counting shipping, so I'm going to wait until the price goes down some when someone makes a new offer.

    I have been picking up books and reading a few chapters before getting bored. It's getting insane, I haven't read a whole book through in nearly a month.

    I go through periods where I can't read at all and then I go through periods where all I want to do is read.
