Dont you hate it when you have to read a book and then get tested on it?? I read to enjoy, and if I have to take notes of every little thing in the book that I'm gonna get tested on, I dont enjot this book anymore!!!

I'm reading Deadly Legacy, a paperback that I checked out at the local
library. It's a good plot with a woman homicide detective telling the story.
Interesting characters too.

I just finished reading The President by Miguel Asturias (wonderfully confusing to say the least) and I just started Othello (for school). But I'm really excited about Othello, because of the movie "O" that was based on the story (made me cry like five times!). And I'm still reading The Stranger by Albert Camus (But the guy's attitude towards his whole predicament really turns me off)

Just finished a Monsieur Pamplemousse book and starting one by Terry Pratchett, thanks to Sigsfried, I think.

A Forgotten Realms paperback fantasy adventure called
Master of Chains by Jess LeBow. A good read, especially
for those of us who like that particular genre. Plenty of
excitement. :D

Yeah, I do like Pratchett, although I haven't read all that many of his books. I don't think I've read Going Postal, although I may have bought it at some point, meaning to get around to reading it. Is it good?

I just finished reading Siddhartha by Herman Hesse (for school).
I'm currently reading The Picture of Dorian Grey, The War of the Worlds, A Treasury of Great Science-Fiction, and the Naked Sun. omg I just realized those are all sci-fi. I need to expand my tastes a bit more..

I read Iain Banks' "The Wasp Factory" and Annie Proulx's "The Shipping News" for A-level. Both very good books, though not necessarily easy reads. I also have to read David Guterson's "Snow Falling on Cedars", which on some levels i find interesting, and on others I dislike. I do not share many of Gutersons beliefs and values (except racism, which I dislike).

The last book I read was "The DaVinci Code"; a good thriller for my opinion, but only a thriller.
Now I'm reading one of the masterpieces of Leo Tolstoy- Ana Karenina.
