Thank you :) I am really nervous about it.
Yeah I read the details to The Killer Inside Me and it didn't strike me as something I would read. I have The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn around here somewhere. One day I will get around to reading it.
I tried to read an author of the month on that one list I am on and I didn't like the first author they picked, so I think I will stick to reading from my own long list of Plans To Read.
I watched the first two Harry Potter films. I got bored I think on the 3rd one and didn't finish watching it. I hear though the books are WAY better. So I plan to read all the books and then go back and watch the movies. I think maybe after I have read the books, I won't be so bored with the movies since I will know more what is going on. No I am not a member of that group. I am a member of several groups but I don't really participate in them. I want to, but all my online stuff takes up so much time, the groups would take up even more. I do participate in one of my groups, but only if they send out like a group email and it has something in it I am interested in. I am about to start clinicals for nursing and I will have even less time. I fear I won't have much time to read. Do you enjoy that group? Do they have a book of the month they read or something?
Hi, yes thanks for the friend request. I am actually reading what I consider a boring book. I don't know if I will finish it. It's called How to Read a Book. It is supposed to help you read the right way or something. It seemed to get high reviews so I thought I would give it a go and see if it could help in any way. What I really want to read is Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. I have been wanting to start that series. I have it here and if that other book is too boring, I will be reading it tomorrow. :) How about you?
