    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.

      LOL I totally agree. When I have a hard back book, I remove the cover so it doesnt get messed up when I am reading it.

      I forget who suggested Interview with a Vampire, but I am currently reading it, im on page 50 or something, and so far I am not impressed. I am probably comparing it to much to twilight. But so far I feel like it is pretty slow.

        Those are my favorite series. Sword of Truth. There are quite a few of them. The tv show sucks big time. Its not even remotely close to the book.

        Was it James Patterson the mystery book? He has some really good books too.

            I watched 20 minutes of the first episode and turned it off! I only read the first book, I read it twice so far. I just go the next book so I am going to start that after I am finished with my Sophie Kinsella book.

            It wasn’t James Patterson. I know his books, my mom has read every one of his books. I know the book has a female main character and I think she was a detective or some one who investigates crime scenes. I think I left my books at my parent’s place (I left a lot of stuff there when I moved out. Free storage ).

            I have seen a lot of books on here I want to read. My list is getting so long!

              Sounds like it could be Patricia Cornwell or Kathy Reichs, they both write books where the main character is a female crime scene detective.

                  I finished reading My Sister's Keeper on my vacation. I really enjoyed it. haven't watched the movie yet as I was told the ending was different.

                  I just picked up The Lovely Bones. I'm not too far into it right now but so far I really like it. It's so interesting!!

                      Another one on my top 5 of all time, I've read it twice and loved it both times. I saw the movie two weeks ago, and really liked how it was done. Hoping Stanley Tucci wins the Oscar for his performance as the neighbour, he was amazing.
