    Wait, you're RE-reading The Great Gatsby?

    I had to read that book in college and I wanted someone to put me out of my misery.

    I'm reading it Sophomore year in High School. We had to read it first for a very large test and now I'm rereading it while having to annotate it for class. It could be better, but I actually don't mind it much.

    Started & Finished Artemis Fowl:The Last Guardian-Eoin Colfer yesterday.

    Currently reading Mein Kampf.

    Spare my life, please. I just saw this by accident at the local library. No idea why they decided to put it in the shelves though.

    Genesis of Shannara: Armageddon's Children by Terry Brooks

    I highly recommend, especially if you enjoy post-apocalyptic fantasy trilogies.

    Yeah haha idk usually when I'm up to 20 a few fall by the wayside and I have to start over later. Generally I've got 3-4 new books that I read at least once every few days and 1-2 rereads.

    Still annotating Gatsby since we're trying to wrap it up while still doing our Poetry unit in English, so we have been annotating slowly.

    I'm just starting the Great Gatsby since I promised myself I'd read it before I saw the movie. So far its pretty good.

    Obviously you're not a big fan of literature, that was a gorgeous book

    It did have some good moments, but we had to read it within a very small amount of time, so I had to read as fast as I could and couldn't take any notes.

    Well I just "read" (skimmed through and then relied on sparknotes) "A Man For All Seasons". It's for a class, and I already know what the essay's question tomorrow will be, so I didn't really need to read the whole thing too meticulously. It's certainly not one of my favorites, and I wouldn't recommend it, though many people have to read it for school anyway.

    At the moment I am re-reading Dandelion Fire by N.D. Wilson. It's a really good book and its the second part in a series.

    And The Band Played On. Have paused for a few days though. I got interested to read it after seeing the movie. Quite interesting.

    I'm currently re-reading the Harry Potter series, by J.K. Rowling. I'm currently in the middle of book two, and i am still very fond of the series. The last time I read it was when I was in fifth grade, so this is a really good refresher.
