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'd rather my book not get published than be some rarely read or horrible book...

Yes, you're right.

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.
