    I wish I had time to read! My FI actually reads more novels than I do... then he passes them onto me. My current novel is "The girl with the Dragon Tatoo" by Stieg Larsson. Fast read!

      Three Cups of Tea is my vote. A beautiful, uplifting true story that makes you want to go out and save the world.

        I've been reading the Sookie Stackhouse books by Charlaine Harris. The HBO series True Blood is based on the books. Pretty easy and entertaining!

            Ive never heard of it, I will have to check it out. I have to admit though that I love buying the books slightly used from Amazon and keeping them. For some reason I love seeing my library grow. I know, im a nerd. Oh and I dont like to share my books either.

                I don't share my books either!!! I'm SUPER anal when it comes to this.

                I don't like bent pages (unless I do it) or cracked spines....

                  I have a nervous twitch when I see people crack spines...it just seems so wrong! My FIL teases me when he sees me reading my books, open just enough for me to read the pages but not enough to make it crack.

                    Yay, finally a place to find more books worth reading! I love to read, I'm one of those people who will stay up until 4 am if I try to read a little bit before going to bed because I NEED to finish my book! Haha.

                    I read My Sister's Keeper (on flight to Mexico over the summer, yay) and was so disappointed in the movie. The book was great, I laughed and cried. Rented some from the library here and there. Bring on more recommendations, I am shopping used books on amazon :o)

                      I do the same thing! I will stay up till all hours of the night if I am reading a good book!

                      I am sooooooo happy I found this! I love to read and I am usually looking for a good book. I say usually because I kind of got backed up. I kept buying books, but with work, wedding planning, and buying a house I got sorta busy. I finally started reading again and I am reading “Remember Me” by Sophie Kinsella. I love her books and read all of them but this one, “Can You Keep A Secret” and her new one “Twenties Girl” (I got it though for my birthday a few weeks ago). I have read Jodi Picoult’s “My Sisters Keeper” and it was great, but not my kind of book.

                      I also read all the Harry Potter books and loved them. I have actually read them several times. I also read another book called “Wizard’s First Rule” by Terry Goodkind. They actually made a TV series out of it called Legend of the Seeker, but I don’t care for it.

                      I did read a murder mystery serial killer book series about 4-6 years ago by a male author that I loved but I can’t remember who the author was and what the books were called. I will try to find the books.

                      Yeah, I also don’t like to share my books. I only let certain people borrow them with the understanding I get them back. I like to see all the books I read and I will sometimes re-read them.
