My mother was always reading a Stephen King book or Reader's Digest.
I enjoy reading so much. Right now I'm reading Lord of the Rings. I like fantasy, horror, SciFi, and informational books.
Suggest books I may like?
I found this article, and it says 1001 books you must read before you die, I had only read about 300 of them! so I should read about 20 book per year to catchup!

Kalimantaan by Godshalk
American Rust by Meyer
Masters and Commanders by Roberts
Wally Lamb "She's Come Undone"

I think Janet Evanovich has written a great series. I hope someone makes movies out of one of the series. I think Sandra Bullock would make a great Stephanie Plum!
I started reading Dostoyevsky because Albert Camus cited him as an influence... I've been taking my time because I don't want it to end... I like George Orwell, but can't find anything I haven't read at the library... I need something new to read.
So I read 50 shades of grey and I feel like I'm the only one of my friends who just didn't appreciate the entire series.
The first book started off promising but then the standard of writing (which wasn't that impressive to begin with) deteriorated with each successive book...

It's hard to choose one from so many great books. I have made a small list of my "want to reads" for this month.
I have not read them yet, but they are highly recommended!
Which one would you pick?

I read it again, the first time I was 13, after 21 years I still find it amusing.
It's 2 days of Holden Coalfield life, wondering around in NY, after he is kicked out of school, for the third time.
The story happens after WWII, so he is as old as my grandfather.
And that's the...

Well the thing is I love books and want to discuss it with people who read them.
I suggest we pick a book each week and talk books.

THE POWER OF ADDICTED LOVE - Written By Teresa Hamilton
