I'm currently reading all of my textbooks. \o/, but I'm really hanging out for The Host. Only a few more weeks to go! (And Breaking Dawn. All the Twilight movie hype makes me really excited).

Favourite authors include: Kate Forsyth, Ian Irvine, Tamora Pierce, Stephenie Meyer, Jacqueline Moriarty (spelling?), and Janet Evanovich.

Harry Potter is probably my favorite book series ever. I cried so hard while reading the last book. It was so sad. I also read the Princess Diaries books, and a bunch of other Meg Cabot books. Probably my favorite non HP book is The Earth, My Butt and Other Big Round Things by Carolyn Mackler. That book is just great.

Currently I'm reading Wicked. I'm going to see the show July 3rd while it's in Buffalo. I'm super excited. I waited in line for 3 hours to get tickets with my friend Amy. I got a free Hairspray cd out of it though. And of course the tickets.


^^^Thanks a bunch kari!

Yes! I read it because I wanted to read it before the movie came out.. and I ADORED it. I let my sister read it too.. because we like all the same books and she loved it. It's really a book for the book lovers. :D

The Harry Potter books are one of my favourites too. Inkheart, Eragon and His dark materials are amazing books either.

Anyone knows The Trilogy of Bartimaeus? Before I read it, Harry Potter was my favorite series. I used to be a huge fan of Animorphs. I also love Twilight and a few french series (L'?pouvanteur, Leonis, Pakkal, Les chevaliers d'?meraude)

I was addicted to Animorphs... I started to read them when I was eleven, but then they stopped translating them in french, so i ordered them from the U.S. and started to read them in English! :P I never finished my collection though... there were too many of them! loll
I work at a bookstore, in the children section, so even though I'm twenty, I still read teen books. Some of them are really good!

i had so much fun reading them, but suddenly i couldn't find them any more.. maybe they weren't translated in german, too....
how's the work in a bookstore? i have to apply to a job for the time after school in the next months and maybe this would fit to me... :)

I love it! It's really great! Especially in the children section... when you suggest them a book they like, it shows on their face! And when they come back, they often tell you if they liked the book you suggested.

Some customers are snobbish though, like "omg, you don't know that author?" but you know, I guess it's the same everywhere...

Yeah, I'm definitely not as obsessed with Harry Potter as I used to be but I still love it.

Meg Cabot books are amazing. I love All-American Girl. The main character is named Samantha just like me!

HEY!

well im dyslexic, really dyslexic, but ive imporved sinice coming to my new school. theres onyl 11 kids in each class so i get more 1 on 1 time with the teacher. but for me to read is a great thing! there was a time when my parents thought i would never to able to read, this time from the age of 5 to 11. The teachers at my primary school didnt beleve in me and wouldnt try and push me. those years of my life were pritty useless becase of those teachers (DEVILS!) ive had teachers say to my face that i was dum, but ive proved them wronge!
i just finnised reading MACBETH!!!! and loved it!
the Floods series by Colin Thompson is amazing! anything by him is a great read, same with Louis Sacthar. the Harry Potter seris is great. anything by Shakespear is good to try. i tend to read about places i like, like Rome and Egypt, factual books like that are good and anything on animals, my favourite animal is beluga whale.
Yes so the girl who hated school and pretended to be sick all the time to get away from the hell hole now enjoys reading. SHAME ROPS school!

i thank my princple for my reading, otherwise i woulndt have picked up a book, but now i cant stop reading.

Simple Plan should make a book....

I work at a book store so I have a stack of books waiting to be read right now because I'm constantly buying more books even though I have a ton to read.

I am currently reading The Fortune of Indigo Skye by Deb Caletti and The Host by Stephenie Meyer

My favorite authors are Meg Cabot, JK Rowling, Stephenie Meyer among many many others
