I just didn't care for the message that it was sending to my lil sis. I read them because she loved them and I was trying to take an interest in what she was interested in. We had to sit down and have a chat after I read the second one. She's too good to settle. She should never let someone walk away and then take them back like she can never do better. And she most certainly can't treat people the way Bella treated Jacob. I also just didn't like how stupid she was in general. But I can see why they are appealing. They just don't appeal to me. Ha-ha! :) I am glad you are finding some good books to read. I'll have to take a look and see if those sound interesting. :D
It's good to hear from you. I keep my list of books to read on here so I'm fairly active just to keep that up to date. Ha-ha! I can't read fast enough for all the books I want to read. lol Read anything good lately? What are you reading right now? I'm reading "The Host" by Stephenie Myer. I was just curious how different she would write an adult novel from her Twilight series. I wasn't a fan of Twilight, but this book so far seems pretty compelling. I haven't had a really good read in a long while. I would say maybe Roots. But I read that in November. I need a page turner again. I miss that feeling. Ha-ha!
Hey, Chaigirl! I notice we have quite a few books in common which either you or I have read recently. I just finished The Guinea Pig Diaries, which I read for a book group. I liked it even though it sometimes seemed as though Jacobs was trying desperately to fill up pages. He seems like such a lovable dork, doesn't he? I found especially interesting the appendix on some of our irrational behaviors. I see you rated his Year of Living Biblically higher than you rated this one, by two stars. I may check that one out when I get a chance. Bel Canto and Water for Elephants are books I've read in the past which appear on your recent activity report and I just finished Bob Newhart's I Shouldn't Even Be Doing This. I also notice many titles among your books on the subject of attention deficit. This old grandma has had to learn to live with that problem since long before it was recognized as a syndrome officially. I find that what some of my friends are just now going through ("senior moments" and the like -- such as CRS) are old hat to me, which puts me at a slight advantage, I suppose. It's particularly gratifying to see my sister get a dose of what she always made fun of me for. Hah! Hope you are doing well.
Hello from Seattle. Dark and cold and perfect for reading a good book. I just bought my college books for this first quarter (I've never gone to college before) I am looking forward to learning more about everything. I, also, found a couple of books on job hunting on the sale table in the SSCC library that I just couldn't pass up.
Do you do that too?
Hi Chai, I'm sure you would have forgottenme by now. I do apologise for vanishing and not keeping in touch. This year has been an eventful one - a new job, moving house, which hasn't ended as yet, new clients and a wole lot of work. I was also down with pneumonia for 2 months - so I was really not up to keeping in touch with anyone. I ocassinaly logged on to facebook, but only to reply to mail.
But enough about me, how have you been my cheerful, bright friend? :) I have missed being here and hopefull I will be more regular from now on.
Lotsa love :)
