    Why would you read 6 books at the same time, with little variety in form and difficulty? I never understood how people can do that without it detracting from your reading experience. You don't watch 6 films at once, swapping from dvd to dvd after 20 minutes of each.

    For some reason we're reading the coursework and examined texts at the same time with a different teacher for each one.

    I'm in A2, but Jane Eyre and Wide Sargasso Sea are from the AS exam that i'm retaking (four marks off an A! :mad:).

    Nineteen Eighty-Four is wider reading to relate to Oryx and Crake.

    Re-reading Emma, love that book so much!

    Recently read the Hunger Games and loved it, but I'm busy buying Christmas/Birthday presents (loads of people have birthdays in December, including me) so I don't have money to buy the sequels, which is a nightmare, but every time I'm in Waterstones I pick up Catching Fire and read a bit more. :L Hopefully I'll get some book vouchers and then I'm buying those straight away.

    Finished it 20 minutes ago, came on here to scout out some new books to read next. I think I'll read another book from the Malazan books of the fallen.

    Reading Love In The Present Tense at the moment, by Catherine Ryan Hyde. The first time I read it in one night because I couldn't put it down. It's taking longer this time, several years later, but I'm still enjoying it just as much. One of my favourite books ever. I might try and pick up Pay It Forward next which is another one by her which is meant to be pretty good too.

    Coram Boy, By Jamila Gavin. And yes I realise it's a children's book, but I don't care . I've read it a couple of times before and love it, especially as it's based around where I live.
    I've also been dipping into William Boyd's Dream Lover - a collection of his short stories. Boyd's one of my favourite authors, it's just a pity I've read all of his books now :/.
