^I LOVE A Brave New World!

I wasn't sure if I would, but I read it because it was on the list for a book report I had to do for a MATH class, and I loved it.

I love it too! I've read it twice now. I had to read it my senior year for English class, and it's one of the few books that I had to read for school that I actually liked! :) I also like 1984, which is similar to Brave New World. (I've read it twice also.) I can't decide which book I like better.

I'm still reading Lord of the Rings, but I'm almost finished! :D (I'm halfway through The Return of the King.)

Just popped in to say that I've finally finished Lord of the Rings! I really enjoyed it. I think what I liked about it most was the poetry. I don't really like poetry in general, but I liked his verses because I actually understood them! :)

Okay now that Halloween is around the corner, it's time for horror stories by Algernon Blackwood, H.P. Lovecraft, and Bram Stoker's Dracula's Guest (I read Dracula last year).

Just finished Slaughterhouse 5 and just started Catch 22.

I only read books with numbers in the title or my family will die.

:hysterical: I'm not sure if you were joking or not, but I have the same problem with numbers. I have to put the radio or television volume on an even # or my family will die. Should this be in the Ask Auntie thread?

What I'm currently reading:

My Medical Office Coding textbook.

It's the same disorder that dictates that I can only kill on the 14th and 20th of every month.

:lol: I like to read Janet Evanovich's Plum series. Each one has a number in it.

One for the Money, Two for the Dough. Just finished Finger Licking Fifteen. They're a quick read and pretty funny.

G'day Buckeye!

What's up Doc!? biggrin.gif

Dunno about being the first, yeah it was released here today, which is yesterday there!

It's a space / time continuum thing! smile.gif

I like Brown's style of writing, he is similar to Crichton in that the narrative is fast paced and are easily transformed into screenplays for movies.

I'll let y'all know how it goes without giving too much away.

It features Freemasonry?

Went to the library today and got three beginning German. :blush:

I know I'll suck at it, even though my mom spoke it, she would never teach me.

I wonder if those Rosetta videos work like they claim.

The three or so different dialects would/will make me looney. :wacko:

I just finished Dan Brown's "The Lost Symbol". As usual, I got sucked into it. Some of it was predictable. But for future reference, I really need to NOT look at Wikipedia before I finish a book. Accidentley read some spoilers on there that ruined it for me. <_<
