I haven't been able to read anything lately, college takes up a lot of time. I almost bought The Time Travelers Wife the other day though.

Squee! I adore TTW. To the point of obsession. Heh. Seriously, yesterday, I found the dates/places for a book tour the author's doing, and sulked when I realized that she's not coming anywhere near me. Bah.

Reading something for pleasure is a dream, I don't dare to dream anymore.

Not to pimp myself, but did you read the editorial I wrote on that?

Oh wow, guys. Now i'm blushing. It's not that amazing. I have some friends that are taking 6! (Two AP sciences plus Government this semester.)
Besides, AP Spanish is slowly, but surely killing me.

Beth-I read it before! Awesome and so true!

I've always wanted to read "The Time Traveler's wife" what is it about?

Hmm, well, I'm bad at explaining things, but I'll try for you, Vicksin dear. Teehee.

Henry DeTamble travels through time, involuntarily. It's a like a disease, he can't control where he goes, or when he goes, and he can never take anything with him. So he tends to show up in random places, not knowing what year he's in, stark naked. He tends to travel many times to his wife, Clare's childhood, kind of intertangling his future and her past...for example, when they meet in real time, Clare has known him since he was a little girl, but none of that's happened for him yet, so he doesn't know her at all. It's basically a story about their relationship, and dealing with obstacles that come with his conditions, and it's really just beautiful.

Great summation. I'd like to share that I was so touched by this story that every time I see it in the bookstore, I feel proud and happy. It's such a great book.

...High Fidelity, the Chocolate War

Have you read The Chocolate War before? We read it in grade 9 and I was not too impressed. However, seeing as we read it for school, that may have had an influence on my opinion, lol. Also...High Fidelity! That's my next book to read! I loved the movie like whoa.

I bough the sequel to The Chocolate War at a booksale in like, 5th grade. I never read it, though. I think I started it, but I wasn't like, invested in it at all.

Has anyone read 1984, before? I'm sure someone has. I finished it like, two weeks ago, and yeah.. I hated the ending. How depressing.

We just got the book "Red Badge Of Courage" to read for English. It's about war. We haven't started it yet, but.. meh. I'm not big on war stories. Undecided

1984 is one of my favorite books, but yeah, it is really depressing.  The last sentence just makes you want to rewind the book.

I have to read the Lord of the Ring series for a class this semester (yes, I'm serious) and I cannot sit through them. Seriously. I'm like, on page 8 of the first one. Do they get anymore interesting?

...And I thought the movies were boring.

1984 is one of my all-time favorite books. I love it. We will be reading it this year sometime, I'm excited.

Has anyone read Tess of the D'urbervilles?

Summer- The beginning of the first one, imo, is kinda boring. But it does get interesting! Until the middle of the second, that's when I stopped reading for several months. The rest of the series is good though! Oh and the end of the last is boring as well. It's because he describes way too much.

Right now, for school I'm reading To Kill a Mockingbird, which I really hate.  Not the book, because I've read it before, but I hate reading it for school.  My English teacher is way too picky...she goes in depth, makes you pick out stupid stuff like similes and metaphors.  Gah.  Makes my head hurt.

She almost managed to ruin Fahrenheit 451 for me.  But not quite.

I had to read To Kill A Mockingbird and Farenheit 451 last year. *nods*

I <3ed To Kill A Mockingbird, a lot. A lot of people in my class thought it was boring, but I really liked it. As far as Farenheit 451 goes.. meh. I think it went too fast and a lot more could've been added to the story.

I read TTW over the summer because of how much everone on this thread talked about it, and I have to agree it is an awesome book.

I'm with you too Vicks, I can't read for fun anymore.  My AP English Class just got done reading A Separate Peace and now we're moving on to a Scarlet Letter, and for my book report I am reading Cold Sassy Tree, which I had never heard of, but my teacher recommended it so I thought why not.  I'm still angry that my class will probably have to skip The Catcher in the Rye because we don't have enough time, but that book is definately one of my all time favorites.

Soooo.... basically what I got out of that is that the beginning, middle and end of the trilogy are boring?

...Comforting.
