    I used to read a lot - now I'm waiting until I get a kindle because the books are half-price, so I think it's easier like that. That and it makes it harder to lose books.


    I used to wonder what McDonalds could be - until you shared your ketchup with me
    Big hamburger, tonnes of fries, a beautiful tray, milkshakes with straws, sharing nuggets is an easy feat
    And this ketchup makes it all complete!

    I read a lot of books before.. but not so much lately.. Don't really know why.
    Accepted. Despite my dislike, it may be completely unfounded but eh..., for Twilight I'd like to know what you think of the book series? I assume you think it's really good? What about the movies?

    After we read the book the teacher had us do a mock trial where the farm animals where the prosecution, led by Snowball, and Napoleon, and his cronies, were the defendants. I played the role of Napoleon's lawyer. After a few days of trial the jury decided that Napoleon was innocent.

    I was the only one out of all of the defense attorneys who proved Napoleon innocent of all crimes against the Farm.

    Oh my gosh Narnia.

    Favorite Book(s): Inheritance Cycle, (too bad it's too similar to Star Wars plot-wise and it sometimes drags on too long) Harry Potter, Bartimaeus Trilogy, (Google it; my friend introduced the series to me) Percy Jackson series, (it got me interested about Greek mythology) Redwall, (by Redwall, I mean the first book in the series for that's the only one I've read so far) plus many more.
    Favorite Author(s): Rick Riordan, J.K. Rowling, Christopher Paolini, etc.
    Favorite Genre(s): I don't have any favorite genre; I just read whatever's good.
    Favorite Manga: (Magical Pokemon mentioned this for reason, so I shall too) Soul Eater is the best manga I've ever read. That being said, I haven't read much manga. Pokémon Special and a little bit of Shaman King and Bleach are the only others I've read

    I also want to point out that as soon as I finish rereading the Inheritance Cycle, I'll be starting the Hunger Games and I'll probably think it'll be one of the best series I've ever read. I hope the series doesn't disappoint me.

    What books do you guys want to read?

    I want to read "The Last Unicorn " By: Peter S. Beagle.

    Has anyone read it?

    Edit:

    I finished reading The Borrowers (book 1). Only 4 more to go! LOL I really enjoyed the first book. Although, the ending disappointed me a little - it hinted that something never actually existed.

    Favorite genre: romance/ romantic comedy (manga/anime), adventure, paranormal, and fantasy

    Accepted. Is Redwall a good series? I heard it was.

    What books do you guys want to read?
    I'm over halfway through 1633, an alternate history novel that is part of the 1632 series (written by Eric Flint and other authors). Next I'm hoping to finish a few history books (non-fiction) that I've had for some time. After those, or I may switch the order around. *shrug*

    Among the three history books, the first is James McPherson's Battle Cry of Freedom: The Civil War Era. The second book is about the Thirty Years' War: Europe's Tragedy, written by Peter H. Wilson. The third book is about the early expansion of Islam. It's titled The Great Arab Conquests: How the Spread of Islam Changed the World We Live In and was written by Hugh Kennedy.

    As for fiction I'd like to continue the 1632 series as well as continue reading the Crusader Trilogy, as I just finished the first book a couple of weeks ago. Then i've got to continue reading the Fate of the Jedi series as well as finish reading Harry Turtledoves' Colonization series and his Timeline-191 series. Then I've got find a new series of books to read.

    I've got a helluva lot of reading to do.

    Yay! Another Pegasister! We are as rare as unicorns!

    I also want to read "We Can Do" By: Moshe Kai Cavalin

    Have you guys heard of this book? It seems really cool. The book is about the author who entered college at age 8 and how we can do anything with hard work.

    I really want to read the Hunger Games. It appears like it's a great series and the movie seems okay too. (Though, you know, movie adaptations are usually horrible.)

    About Redwall, the first book at least is a book worthy of its great reception. I'm really not sure about the rest, but the first book is a beautiful book.

    Semantics.


    I've also altered the sign-up sheet a little.

    Both Bronies and Pegasisters love magical talking ponies, though.

    Anyway, I recently read Higurashi no Naku Koro ni (Higurashi When they Cry) Eye opening arc volume 3 (#13 in all). Does anyone here watch the anime, read the manga, play the games, or know about the series?

    I'm currently reading:

    Sailor V volume 2 (prequel to Sailor Moon)

    I've heard of it, but haven't gotten around to reading any Agatha Christie novels. I really should pick up a couple, seeing as I really enjoyed the Poirot mysteries I saw on TV. Have you read a lot of her books? If so, could you recommend a good one involving Poirot to start off with?

    You should then read Murder On The Orient Express. Heard of it but I haven't found a copy to read.

    Who or what is Poirot? Is he a dectective in a murder mystery series?

    I'm currently reading:
    Codename: Sailor V volume 2 (Sailor Moon prequel)
    The Tale of Two Cities by: Charles Dickens (for my high school English IV class)

    I guess I'll continue the "what I'm currently reading" topic, seeing as I can't answer the above question and never got into Agatha Christie.

    Chosen - Ted Dekker, and The Hunger Games - Suzanne Collins. There's several others, most notably The Two Towers, but I've only gotten around forty pages in them.

    Also, are there any books that any of you are waiting to be released this year? So far just three for me: Mortal by Ted Dekker, and The Mark of Athena and The Serpent's Shadow both by Rick Riordan.
