  2. I think I average about 4-5 per week, depending on how well the book holds my interest.
  3. This year I have finished two very odd books: The Pronographer's Poem by Michael Turner. I know, you are probably saying that the title alone should have given me warning, but I thought it was just catchy. Scar Culture by Toni Davidson. Afte reading the first two chapters you are very thankful for the third. Why? Because you begin to wonder if this is a book of short stories since the first two chapters seem to have nothing to do with each other at all. Then when you meet the psychologist.....oh boy.
  4. My list for last year was just way too big But I'm glad some of you found your missing pieces! Maybe I'll just start with this year's list instead
  5. I just started Whose Little Girl Are You by Bethany Campbell and keep carrying around Memoirs Of A Geisha but have yet to crack the spine on it.
  6. Someone wonderfully fulfilled one of my wishes on bookrelay.com and so I feel greatful to have this in my hands. (Well, technically, it's in the spare bedroom since I moved recently, but hope to stumble across it soon so I can read it!)
  7. The Killers.....but it's in the car so I have no idea the title. Mr Brightside just keeps popping into my head for some unknown reason.
  8. What a shame I have missed out! See what happens when you decide to visit no discussion sites for a month or so? Just as an FYI....I've just checked on good ole BookCrossing, and all journaled copies are in travelling status. Anyone finished withe thier version they would like to send to good ole Canada?
  9. I try to keep only one book, but my brain wanders quite a bit. It usually ends up being two to four. There's always a book in the loo, a book in my bag in case I forget my current reading and then whatever I am currently reading (maybe it's more than 2-4! LOL)
  10. Your internet connection is now so fast, that the pages won't load properly, as all internet providers think that everyone on the planet has mastered speed reading 101. I wish that the cat would stop licking the photographs he finds on the coffe table. (And, yes, he actually does this!)
  11. What a toss up! If anyone was to look at my Bookshelf on Bookcrossing you would notice that I crave British and American crime writers. Although, when I am out at the thrift shops I do try to find the Brit ones over the American. I think personally, that I like the language better. It's almost as if I can hear the different dialects coming from the Brit police. I like the terminology used, the names of the characters and how "small-town" they are often portrayed to be. When I want "down and dirty" I switch to American. But to throw a third option in the loop....I have recently discovered a C
  12. I was lucky enough to receive thaisone and Tuesday's With Morrie from BookCrossing.com and thoroughly enjoyed them both! I think I prefered this one, though, as it really got the brain juices flowing about who my five would be.
  13. I throughly enjoyed this book. Reading other people's views on this was very refreshing! I used to work with autistic children as did my mum which may explain why I could relate to Christopher. Annoying is definately one of the words I have heard used time and time again, and I think is accurate. But this did not make me dislike the book. Two thumbs up from me
  14. I read this for a bookring at the beginning of the year. Having not read James Patterson for some time, and hearing that he had written a few "romance" novels, I thought I had signed up for the wrong type of book. After reading the first few chapters (chapters are many and mostly three pages in length) I was convinced it would be a lovey-dovey read, but I persevered. And how wrong I was! Once I began I could hardly put it down. A very interesesting thriller.
  15. I read a quick review on this one not so long ago, which included a quick snippet from the inside. Definately sounds like it could be a great read. I'll have to wait for the softcover though, as I find hardcovers are too unwielding.
