Im currently reading "It Happened To Nancy" which is actual diary entries of a teen age girl who was infected with AIDS. Remains one of my favorite books of all time.


Oh and I will happily admit that I am a diehard bookworm!

I've always wanted to be able to read multiple books at once, but alas, I cannot.

I can't do that.. I start mixing up plots and characters. I don't know how people do it!

I just finished reading The Five People You Meet in Heaven and it was pretty good. I got worked up all until the ending. It certainly built itself to end with something much better. It left me kind of stale.
Hopefully Tuesdays With Morrie will be a much better book whenever I get my hands on it.

Tomorrow I'm taking a trip to the library to see if I can fulfill GibsonGirl's wish of me reading a book from the DiscWorld series.

Besides that I have Love, Rosie waiting for me. My godmother send it to me. It's sort of thick, but most of it is in email format, so I can probably get through it quick.

Aaaaaaaaand I can read multiple books at a time. Do it all the time in college.

I'm reading Fast Food Nation. It's really interesting to see how the oh so popular fast food places got start and how embedded they are in our culture. It's actually a little

I guess they're making a film adaptation of Fast Food Nation, which I find a little baffling. But I'm curious to see how they pull a narrative story out of the book.

I've started 21 Dog Years: Doing Time At Amazon.com by Mike Daisey, about a self-defined slacker in Seattle who takes a customer service job with Amazon in its start-up years. It's fairly entertaining, but not great. A quick read, which is perfect for my lazy Sunday.

I heard about the movie. I think Greg Kinnear is in it. I wonder if it will be a fictional Super Size Me.

My next book is 1984...I love summer reading!

I finally jumped on the bandwagon and am reading 'The Da Vinci Code'. I'm not liking it too much, either.

I've had a lot of people tell me that Dan Brown's Angels and Demons is much better than Da Vinci, but I'm just not interested in reading anything else by him.

The thing about Angels and Demons is that it is OSOOOOO far-fetched, but to the point, that it's extremely entertaining, and you seriously can't stop reading it

angels and demons>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>da vinci code

I read 'The Da Vinci Code' last summer and although you have to suspend your disbelief somewhat I found that I had to finish it and thought it was an entertaining read. However, I tried 'Angels and Demons' but I found the whole far fetched-ness of it instantly annoying for some reason and wasnt able to get past about the fourth chapter

I am currently not reading anything (unless you count research articles for university). However, I have 'Teacher Man' by Frank McCourt waiting to read this summer.

I just don't like dan browns style of writing - it doesnt interest me at all, so I doubt I will bother with angels and demons. I hear its better than the da vinci code but I don't really like all these conspiracy theory type books. People take them way too seriously.

I looooooove DanBrown's books......fiction people,fiction..........(or is it,hmmmmm)
I have not seen the movie yet ( i was told it's not good!,and nothing frustrates me more than a movie stuffing up a good book)

I'm currently reading Mao's Last Dancer by Li Cunxin, a great read
