C.S. Lewis? J.R.R. Tolkein?

I'm reading:

LotR: FotR (I got into another book so I couldn't finish)

I just finished A Series of Unfortunate Events: The Bad Beginning for the second time.

The Door Within

Yeah, Horowitz's books are good.

The Diamond brothers are pretty funny(not to mention stupid).

Edit: Sweet, I got Scorpia and Eagle Strike today.

Well actually - AWESOME! 8) 8) 8)

Heya boyos!

Does anybody here read Diana Wynne Jones books? She wrote Howl's Moving Castle, (which the movie was based on) and Castle in the Air....... among numerous others....


Anyone? :o

I'm reading The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemmingway, because I'm trying to get into the classics. That is the most horrrible book I have ever read in my life. I'll sum it up for you in two words:

Intoxication
Relationships
I like what I've read of Hemingway's work...I don't remember what the titles were though. :x

I just recently started C.S. Lewis' "Screwtape Letters". It's really quite good. I hadn't much knowledge about the book, so it was quite a surprise to find a book based entirely upon correspondence between two demons. It's a very interesting concept, one that I'm really enjoying.

I liked screwtape letters alot. what was best is that the book I was reading was so old, the pages were all yellowed and falling out. so I got to read them like they were letters.... ... letters to me...

it was pretty cool. i then pushed a small child off a bridge.

If I thought they were letters to me I would be scarred for life. And paranoid. How do they end? "Your affectionate and increasingly ravenous Uncle, Screwtape?" Or something like that. 8O

I am currently rereading Anne Rice's Interview with the Vampire. I thought that it was okay the first time that I read it, but now I am rereading it and I don't understand what she is talking about at all. :?

Oh, haha very funny. :D

I am serious, though. Those vampires are so darn philosophical. Well, Louis is anyway. I might like the book better if he weren't such a spineless weakling.

Anyway. :roll:

I finished reading Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood (English assignment). I considered it unoriginal, and the story seemed more of a vehicle for the author's agenda than anything else.
