Ok, I'm on page 160 and I'm hooked now :grin: . There was a dialogue in it that reminded me of you, Jax: a character was reading Wuthering Heights, and another one said "it's a sad story", to which the former replied "sad stories make good books". Hehe. I certainly agree with that, but I'm not sure ...

Oh, how could I forget The Poisonwood Bible?!

I bought Story of a Shipwrecked Sailor months ago and still haven't read it. I'll try to do it now that I'm on semi-vacation.

Not the top 5 of all time, but the ones that come to mind: The House of the Spirits - Isabel Allende - yeah, pretty horrible and depressing things happen in this one (including torture scenes that made me put the book down for a few minutes), but I was hooked from page 1. Doomsday Book - Connie Will...

Well, I don't usually read the book club selections, but that's because I wanna read whatever I want whenever I want. Book clubs seem like homework to me. I'm not sure what books you're referring to when you say "the types of books you guys read". I think we read a wide selection of books. Now you g...

I started The Kite Runner yesterday. I'm only on page 45, and I don't have an opinion yet. It'd better be good!

I'm finishing Name All the Animals by Alison Smith. I think I'm enjoying it, though her family is so religious it's hard for me to relate to some things (as you guys know, I'm an atheist). But it's an ok book overall. Just ok.

What was your overall impression of the book? Did you like it? I loved it. It was one of my favorite books in the past... 2 years or so. I thought it was very original (even though time travel is not original she managed to make it different). Were you confused at all by all the time traveling? Not ...

Oops. I did, didn't I? Sorry, I'd forgotten. What was your overall impression of the book? Did you like it? Were you confused at all by all the time traveling? What did you think of the episode of Clare and Gomez? Some people said they found the parts where Henry showed up for Clare as a child were ...

I'm reading A Million Little Pieces. I like it, but I'm ready for some hope now. I'm on page 180.

I should definitely stop reading it when I'm eating. He pukes at least once every other page, and he describes it very vividly. Is that a word?

It is, LB, but it's kinda slow. Don't expect too much action. Though right now it's 2001 (the book starts at her birth in 1967 and then goes to 1985) and there's been a lot of tension between muslims and non-muslims in their community, and I'm curious to know what will happen to our hero after Septe...

Here. Be careful, though. It contains spoilers. I was looking and the author has only posted a few words, but it's nice anyway. And it looks like a good discussion.

I'm reading Life Expectancy by Dean Koontz and The Romantic Movement by Alain de Botton. The former is pure fun, the latter is fun with philosophy. I'm enjoying them both.
