Why is that?


I like books that make me think, but not interpret -> then make me think.

It annoys me, and usually puts me to sleep.

Oh how I loathe the high school reading curriculum.

It isn't a book. It's a play. Why should we read a play?

I remember reading that book when I was in seventh grade, of course outside of school. Thought it was pretty good.

Currently reading the Dead Zone by Stephen King.

someone satch, blackwater (dont really remember the auther). book about the mercanary company called blackwater usa from their beginnings through to them being a massive private army opperating throughout the world as combat and peacekeeping rolls( but tends to focus on their worse side). pretty interesting stuff.

This. Fealiks knows what he's talking about here, unlike the rest of the people in this thread. I'll probably slap a lock on this and sticky it so that people can make a good example of his intelligence.

True, but I think of it as a book. Plus it is better than acting it out!

Bone Song by John Meaney.

It was originally for a group oral for english class but it turned out to be one of those lucky finds. Good read (well I'm not done yet, but other members of my team are and they liked it)

is Terry Pratchett really that good? i know its a bad reason as to not read a book infact there is a saying along the lines but i havent read any of them cause i dont like the cover art on the books. seems childish because of the cover art and puts me off.

good luck with LOTR i have read it and i like it but it is a bit of a hard read imo some long parts seem to drag on and on and on etc. took me about 3 trys of reading it before i finally managed to get through all three wihtout starting a different book.
