  1. Grr, your bolding is hard to distinguish. From what I can tell, you, too, are pretty well-read.

  2. The alchemist is disgusting. You can ask roba if you don’t believe me 🙂

  3. Congratulations on reading so many! It’s interesting to see what people have read.

    I recommend you adding ‘Rebecca’ to your list of want-to-reads. It’s very powerful–had me glued to the pages and fascinated!

  4. alrighty…and btw dt i fixed it so that it’s clearer now…:p

  5. alchemist disgusting? i disagree my friend. read the lay lines and stare into the heart of the universe.

  6. saned i prefer reading the book and making my own decision on whether i like it or not instead of just following along with what other people think of it. if you dont like it thats fine if roba doesn’t like it good for her but thats not gonna make me not like it.

    it’s like when harry potter came out in the states a ton of christians were going nuts about it so my family were like ‘if the christians have something against it then it must really be bad’ and so they wouldn’t let me read the book. now after lots of arguing and convincing and daring them to read the books… my family has become harry potter fans and found there was nothing wrong with it to begin with.

    so never let others make up your mind for you concerning things you can easily make your own mind up about them.

  7. You didn’t like Watership Down? 😦
    That was the first book I ever read. They made a pretty awesome animated movie out of it as well.

  8. yeah i didn’t really care for it but dont get me wrong the writing style was really good and stuff it’s just i sat there through all those pages waiting and expecting something major to happen and nothing did.

    it’s my favourite book, it’s seriously amazing
