Pride and Prejudice--Jane Austen 

Brideshead Revisited--Evelyn Waugh

Green Angel--Alice Hoffman

The Case of Doctor Sachs--Martin Winckler

Hello I'm new. Names Laura. I'm 19 and I love reading a good book about someone else's complicated relationship.
Number of books owned:

Last book bought:
_Nicholas Sparks "The Choice" (currently half way through)

Last book read:
_Nicholas Sparks "Dear, John"

1 book that mean a lot to me:
_1_ Nicholas Sparks "Dear, John" I hate everything about it, that I love it, because I hate what it reminds me of.

5 random books that I have read:
_1_ "Go Ask Alice"
_2_ Benjamin Hoff "The Tao of Pooh"
_3_ Ann Brashares "Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants"
_4_ Stephen Chbosky "The Perks of Being a Wallflower"
_5_ George Orwell "1984"

* I typically enjoy books that help you overcome something (Book _2_)
* (Book _1_) "Go Ask Alice" was very intriguing and I read it in 2 days, which is rare, I enjoy reading slow in spare time.
* And Love Stories or romantics (not that exotic sex book stuff) But anything Nicholas Sparks.

Any suggestions?

Hi! I'm new, obviously.

I'm Catherine, and I'm 15. I spend far too much time reading - time I probably should be spending revising! Most recently I read To Kill A Mockingbird. I enjoyed it a lot, until we really overdid it in my English class. Same problem with Pride and Prejudice, really, except I still love that book. And anything by Jane Austen, actually.

My very favourite book has to be The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy by Douglas Adams; that guy's insane. Other favourites are anything by Douglas Adams, anything by Jane Austen, Lord Of The Rings, and Roald Dahl's short stories for adults.

And while I'm here, I was wondering: has anyone read any of the Erast Fandorin series by Boris Akunin (that's a pseudonym, I think). They're translated from Russian, and so far there have been 2 books brought out in the UK. Am I the only one who loves these books?


hello ladies

hi guys! im new. my name is sam and im 15. my favorite book is jane eyre. currently im reading it for the 3rd time. :-D. my other favorites include: gone with the wind, wuthering heights, many waters, and the bible (:-D)

Hi, Saw a pimp by Quinn and followed the trail here. Thanks for letting me friend. Since leaving the workforce to raise kids, I'm miserably out of the loop for good books. Eager to hear what people are reading, like/don't like. My interests are huge and varied, The Red Tent, Green Mile, Lovely Bones, Wicked, and of course....assorted children literature!! Right now, I'm in the middle of Middlesex. Again, thanks.

In need of some good books.

I've been miserable lately wishing I had some good books to read here in college. I'm poor and bored, bad combination. I read *Shopaholic Ties the Knot* and I really want to buy *Shopaholic and Sister* on Amazon.com. Reading and college don't usually mix for me, but lately I've just had the urge. Any good chicklit books you guys have read that you can recommend for me to buy when I get back home as an X-Mas present for myself??
