Hi September 06, 2006 10:27 AM

I'm in grad school, so my pleasure reading is a bit low, but when I do, I do love to read mysteries, fairy tales, and mythology.

Glad to see a new group is up and all about my favorite past time.

I joined, I joined... that should bring the reading level in the group down a little bit! I finished 2 books yesterday Both by Meg Cabot, Princess Diaries VII (that series is funny, because they make fun of the movies in it) and Avalon High. Interesting if you like/know the King Arthur legends. Both of those are YA books (young adult...aka teens)  [ send green star]

Exactly. Except I'm taller. It would be hard to type if I were only an inch tall. And I walk around with my tongue sticking out all the time.  [ send green star]

Awsome, brat girl !!! Do you stick out your tongue when you read or think to yourself? 

I'm short, a little on the plum side (not a whole lot  but enough to have to lose a few extra lbs).   REading doesn't seem to  help this, but hey, I use my braincells and keep them focused, right?

Hello Readaholics!!!

I'm presently studying as well and due to mandatory study-reading I don't alot too much time to leisure reading - as I would NEVER do that reading which I hate!

I like suspense thrillers the most - Jeffrey Deaver has got to be my fav. and then Tami Hoag and JA Janse as well. I also LOVE Bill Bryson and Douglas Adams (unfortunate to not have him 'with' us any longer). I also love the romantic-comedy-20-30-something books - is there actually a category for this type of book? Maeve Binchy, Jill Mansell, Jane Green, etc...and then on a more informational note I enjoy documentary type books and National Geographic!

Ok...back to the non-leisure reading but the type that seriously taxes the brain...

anonymous Hi Erin! October 10, 2006 9:46 AM

to the group! Thanks for joining us!

I've always meant to read a book by Maeve Binchy, I keep hearing how good they are.  Haven't quite gotten around to it yet though.  Maybe soon. 

I love National Geographic too.  [report anonymous abuse]

Hello from a newbie February 12, 2007 9:46 PM

Hi All, just thought I'd introduce myself.   I live in Perth, Western Australia, love the climate and lifestyle here.   I love reading too, at present my favourite author is Anita Shreve, I have just read her 'Light on Snow' - an amazing book!  [ send green star]
