I love all kinds of books.  I never seem to stop reading its one of my favorite things to do. I love Jane Austin, Gustave Flabert (Madame Bovary etc.) Oscar Wilde, Magaret Atwood, Paullina Simons and many more.  Also there is this book called "Amy and Isabel" by Elizabeth Strout, I recommend it.  It is a really amazing book.  I think everyone should read it!!!

Okay I finally finished The Messenger a few minutes ago!  Unbelievable book and at the same time I'm angry!  I'm not going to ruin it for anyone, but if anyone would to discuss it I'd love ya to PM.  I want to re-hash with someone who has read it.

Also, reading The Things They Carried, so far it's good.  I never thought I'd like a "war" book.

I just finished reading "The Catcher in the Rye" and I absolutely love it! I love Holden, even though he is so disturbed. I feel so bad for him, yet, I love him. He reminds me of Jess, in a way.  Wink

OT -- I have to do an outside reading for English, and I don't know which book to pick. If anyone has any recommendations, could you PM me? Thanks a bunch!

I read that with the English class I go into, it wasn't too bad.  I was a little upset with all of the vulgar in it though, but it does fit the character and he's like Jess.   I'm surprised there are any 'Catcher' references in the Gals, maybe I missed it.

What kind of genres do you like to read?  I'm in a sci fi fan and I'm curious if you've ever read Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card. Check out the link from B&N.

Also if you like political thrillers the fairly new series from Vince Flynn might be appealing.  They are quick reads and I almost guarantee once you pick up the book you won't want to put them down.  Here's a link to them.

Hmm... those are some of my tops right now.  Tom Clancy's also a favorite of myne.  I hope this helps you and/or anyone else!

Thereīs a reference to 'The Catcher in the Rye' in 'The Ins and Outs of Inns':

RORY: All he does is stick up for you and all you do is make his life harder. I guess that's what you have to do when you're trying to be Holden Caulfield but I think it stinks. Luke has done a lot for my mom and a lot for me, and I don't like to see him attacked...

I liked the book it was interesting to read it.
I totally disliked 'On the Road', though (which has many references in GG). I found it boring and not at all worth reading.

Wow...Gilmore and Catcher. An unlikely pairing. Haha.

Hey, thanks MasBYUgal. I'll check them out. Although, I'm not much of a sci-fi fan. I read Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, and I hated that, so I got really "turned off" by sci-fi in generally. But thanks for the suggestions.

Has anyone read The Time Traveler's Wife? Or Memoirs of a Geisha? I was thinking about picking those up and reading those, but I need to hear reviews first!

Thanks guys!

Well I think Zach sums it up perfectly in season 5.  Which episode is that?  I haven't read it though.

You're welcome for the advice.  I'm really hooked into one of Orson Scott Card's right now my heart is racing, the book is so capitivating.  IF anyone's curious it's Ender's Shadow.

Phantom of the Opera.  Not because of the musical or the recent movie but because I love the Gaston Leroux book.  I was just discussing it with a few friends because one is teaching a gothic literature class.  If you want I can give you the link to our discussion.
