    Hi, i'm just reading Of mice and Men, i'm just at chapter four. Did you study it at school?

    My favourite book has to be 'Red Dog' Louis de Bernieres, its excellent, also his other books are very good, especially if you are into literature...

    Animal Farm - George Orwell

    Read it when I was about 9 and it is still my favorite for sooooooo many reasons.

    lol yeah i did it at GCSE....its just a great book! plus i can give you a damn good character analysis of George and Lennie!

    i prefer 1984 to animal farm- that's got to be one of the best books ever.

    i also love pride + prejudice- such a classic + gets better every time i read it

    fav childhood book - the BFG- i just remember my mum reading this to me + my brothers + i've always been upset that i lost my copy so she bought me a new one for my 17th birthday : )

    I haven't really read many books.

    But "The Wasp Factory" by Iain Banks is quite good.

    I must read Animal farm though.

    The 'His Dark Materials' trilogy by Phillip Pullman is pretty awesome. The first book is called Northern Lights, the second The Subtle Knife and the last is The Amber Spyglass, I reccomend them all highly, but make sure you read them in order!

    Mines either "Burmese days" by George Orwell or "The catcher in the Rye" by JD Salinger. I can never quite decide. Does anyone have a favourite non-fiction book, or am I the only one geek enough?

    Thought so.

    totally agree- they're meant to be children's books, but i can't see how- i think they're perfect for mid-teens (like me). they're just so good.

    I read To Kill a Mockingbird for GCSEs, and really enjoyed it. It had loads of themes behind it and a really good storyline with an equally good message. I'm sure that even if I wasn't studying it, I would have enjoyed it.
    By the way, did you guys hear that the guy who played Atticus Finch in the movie died. Sad news. From what I saw he was a pretty decnt actor. I have to admit, I wouldn't have known who he was if they hadn't shown the clip in the movie adaptation.

    The actor who played Atticus Finch was Gregory Peck. He was a VERY good actor. Will be sorely missed (especially when you compare him to the new breed of actors).

    Atonement by Ian McEwan is great...

    My newest 'heat' mag. Nah, I quite like..hmm..I would have liked Animal Farm if it weren't for all the analysis and characterizations my class did for 2 whole terms. Kinda took the charm of the book away when you're reading Chapter 7 for the 203th time [no I didn't count.]
    I like books that make me cry. Don't ask me why.

    i like the porn my i got myself today. really great pics and stories!!11

    To anyone who likes Phillip Pullman or Harry Potter, I REALLY recommend the author Raymond E Feist. He is amazing! Its written for anyone from teen to adult, but the stories have some youth playing an important role. Seriously! READ THEM!! lol. post back 2 tell me what u think of them! u wont b disappointed!

    I agree Ramond E Feist is an excellent author. I really enjoyed the Magician Trilogy. Real page turners.

    Robrt Jordan is also really good. He had written a saga called

    The Wheel of Time

    10 novels so far each one brilliant, do a search for it. I started reading it about 18 months ago and have read all 10. Apparently there will be 2 more before the end. Excellent read but not for the fainted hearted.

    What does everyone else enjoy reading????
