lol. My aim is basically to read it now so I can essentially strike it off the list and never have to read it again! And I keep starting books and giving up on them so feel the need to prove to myself that I have some staying power.

Just think if you give up now, you'll probably end up reading those 6 chapters again as well as the whole book eventually
Haha im trying to read so i can say i have i will get through it.... :yep:

White Teeth by Zadie Smith because everyone raves about it...but Im struggling to see why, at the moment its so boring and nothings really happening!

So at the same time Ive just started reading What the Body Remembers by Shauna Baldwin...its good, but its one of those ones where the descriptions a bit over the top and pretentious.

Robert Walser's stories. He's a strange guy. Sometimes I think I'm in love with the man and others I wonder what the hell that story was for.

Just started Bleak House by Dickens.
How are you finding Bleak House? Are you reading it for pleasure or for an English course? How far are you at the moment?

The Rainmaker by John Grisham.

This book has made me dislike John Grisham as an author.....he unecessarily drags things.

I'm about half way through - I haven't actually read much in a while, as I've been busy recently. I'm reading it for pleasure. I'm enjoying it quite a lot.
I like Bleak House myself and I'm glad you are enjoying it. Have you seen the BBC adaptation of it? That is quite good to go alongside reading the novel. What edition of the book do you have at all and have you read any other Dickens?

And I just finished "The Firm". I loved it. I need to purchase another Grisham's book soon.
