I am currently reading "The Insiders" which is a fabulous book about corporate stock manipulation by a corrupt group of CEO's. They live BIG lives while living off the people who work for them-sound familiar? Very of the moment and getting lots of great reviews. Five book clubs in my area have read it. I love the guys last name as well!!

I've never written anything on here, so I'm not sure what to do, but I love to read. I read a lot of children's and young adult books. I loved the Twilight Series and also Host by Stephanie Meyer. I just finished Eragon and Eldest by Christopher Paolini--both good. Today, I finished The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman for which he just won the Newbery Prize--interesting. The last two more adult books I read are A Long Way Down and High Fidelity by Nick Hornby. I love his very casual, snappy prose. Anyway, I've given this a try!

By the way Flat Belly diet, interesting but like all diet books, mostly a way for someone to make $$$$. I am now reading Pillars of the Earth. Huge book and will take me forever but very interesting read.

I never used to like to read and now I cannot stop. I think I read a book within a week. I highly recommend the Twilight Series and Marley and Me. Right now I am reading the Dark-Hunter Novels by Sherrilyn Kenyon (on book 7). emoticon

The reality is you will fall down, but as always it's getting up that counts.

I read a lot over the summer. I'm not currently reading a book right now, but I think I'll pick one up this week.

I do recommend "Born on a Blue Day". It is a great read!

Have a wonderful day,

I also like the if you give a Moose a cookie book LOL - that whole series is hilarious ^.^ - I also like Good Night Moon, Dr. Seuse's books, Seasame Street classics..... etc.........

However, I think I'm going to try to find a good book to read this month and then write about it... and then do the same thing with a different book next month (kinda like a book club thing)

Anyways, it'll probably be either Fantasy or Sci-Fi.. We'll see ^.^

HUGGLES!!!

Rhiannon----look at all that weight you have lost...way to go.

The reason why you don't read so much is because you are going to college...who wants to read when you have to read all them boring textbooks.

Keep up the good work...and keep inspiring me === TO all of you.

Everyone seems to love that series.
I must have a look at Sophie Kinsella again.

I used to love reading, and I want to spend more time enjoying myself in life generally.

So I've resolved to start reading again.

I'm currently reading For one more Day by Mitch Albom.

I use to not read at all. I think it was because we had to read so much in college. But now I try to find the time to read. I do a lot of reading during my lunch hour. I go to one of our conference rooms so no one can bother me. i cannot get enough of it...

I read one book for free, and then I went out and purchased it, & continued to purchase the series. She's a very good author, I find her books fun & light hearted. I also purchased another book not in the series by Sophie K. When I really like a book or an author I like to own them & put them on the book case.
