Who loves to Read???

Recommended Posts

I have Secret Daughter & then doubted buying it...I didn't ever start it! Thank you for letting me know that its good...I'll definitely give it a go! I've got about 8 or 10 books here on my shelf to read...I have a hard time figuring out which ones to start next!!!

 

Heather - welcome to the reading thread!!

 

I think I might continue being the traditionalist & read paper books...until they become obsolete of course...then I will succumb to technology! lol

I have the Sony prs 300 and you can get it on ebay for about $150.  There are fancier versions, like with a touch screen (I hate touch screens) or the Kindle is nice...my fmil has a Kindle and it has all sorts of features like a full keyboard and wireless internet to download books but for me it's way more than I'd need out of a book so not worth the extra money.

 

And I just finished the Millenium trilogy this week...definitely worth reading!

I think I have to check out an E Reader too!!  How much do they run? (Canadian) Or a recommended brand to buy?!!

The e-readers use some special technology that makes the reading easier on the eyes.

 

The ipad would be like a nomal computer screen, but has way more capabilities than just an e-reader.

 

My e-reader was a gift so I can't comment on the cost - but I love it! Especially for travelling. You can take a number of books with you without having them take up a ton of room in your luggage!

Hi Ladies,

 

It's been a while since I've been on this thread so just thought I'd share my favorites!! I am in a book club and these were mine, as well as the groups, favs:

 

The American Wife

Water for Elephants

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and The girl that Played with Fire, we still have to read Hornets nest and are so excited!

The Help

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peal Pie Society

The Glass Castle

 

I've ordered The Shadow of the Wind and The Book Thief based on your guys' suggestion! I'm excited for a good book! My book club goes in waves and now we're in a slump. :( I haven't been crazy about the last 3 books: The Myth of You and Me (ok, but not great), Olive Kitteridge (painful), and A Reliable Wife (downer). I need a good one!

I'm currently ready "Mennonite in a little black dress". It's supposed to be one of those witty, fun reads...but I'm having a hard time with it. It's definitely not hard to put it down. I just want it to be done so I can get on  to another!

Hey!  First time posting in here... but I finished "The Book of Negroes" by Lawrence Hill and I thought I would rave about it... I want to read it AGAIN! lol

 

Now I'm on to a book called "A long way gone" by Ishmael Beah, very good and a true story :)
