I enjoy mysteries the most but am open to pretty much everything else.

Look at the trees, look at the birds, look at the clouds, look at the stars...
and if you have eyes you will be able to see that the whole existence
is joyful. Everything is simply happy. Trees are happy for no reason;
they are not going to become prime ministers or presidents and they are
not going to become rich and they will never have any bank balance.
Look at the flowers - for no reason. It is simply unbelievable
how happy flowers are.
Thanks for the friend request! Since I see you reside in Chicago I must ask...Cubs or Sox? Chi-town is on my must-see list :)
Your shelf has some pretty heavy duty reading. I like to break up the fluffier stuff that I read with the heavier stuff.
Hope you like it here :) Shelfari is one of my favorite places on the net.
I seriously wouldn't bother, it never gets good. And I agree on the monotony for sure! I had read such great things about it so I was curious what the big deal was. After I read it I went online and read reviews of it and most people seemed to be impressed that it was like Hamlet with dogs, big whoop, that doesn't make it a good book. Hope your next read is much better!
Welcome to this great book site! I think it is better than Good Reads and I love the bookshelf widget. I enjoy mysteries, historical novels, memoirs, and chic lit now and again. There are alot of great YA novels out there, too. So I guess a variety . . .
I have two blogs, but one is a book blog -- one of a million out there -- zqueenbees.blogspot.com "Chapter Chit Chat" -- drop in some time. My TBR list is getting very lengthy! It looks like we have several same books listed -- Three cups of Tea is our Nov book club choice.
Hi Renee, thanks so much for the friend request. I visited Chicago for the first time this summer, what an amazing city. What are you reading right now? I am all over the place reading wise, but have been working on the Uglies series (a teen series), they are pretty interesting and quick to read. Would love to pick your brain sometime on Edgar Sawtelle, we had very different opinions on it.
Welcome to 1001 books. You can keep track of the books you have read from the book, 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die, join in the discussions on the books we are reading for the month (BOTM) or you can debate the merits of the list as some enjoy doing. We hope you will want to join in the choosing of BOTM and the discussions. The current books are pinned to the top for that month. There are older discussions that can be found by searching discussions. If there is any way the group administrator can help further feel free to ask one of us. If you don’t own the book the list can be found at the top in the group description or at http://www.listology.com/content_show.cfm?content_id=22845. A downloadable list of the second edition is available at http://johnandsheena.co.uk/books/?page_id=160.
Hi there! I'm just dropping by to welcome you to The 100+ Book Challenge. The idea of the group is pretty much self explanatory - try to read 100 or more books in a one year period. If you do have any questions, please feel free to send a message to me or Tenia. In the meantime, good luck reaching your goal!
