    I personally like many authors and I collect thousands of books ranging from all age levels. I am a bg reader but I tend not to buy books as I would like to, for their prices, but, I still love to go to Barnes & Noble and read books in there, sitting down to read and relax.

    Go to the bargain book section there Alex for the books are really cheap in that area. And yes I love reading books and I love collecting them and when I really like a book you know I read it all day long! :D

    Yes, I have quite a large collection, though most of them are outside in a box, but I loved this one book I bought it both in audio and paperback. Its "Hachet" By: Gary Paulsen. I liked that book I guess because it should much like what that movie "Cast Away" showed survival of the fitest...

    Yes Brian's winter was a good book, and I like the fact that the author decided to write it, for it also answered alot of questions that rose up that if Brian was to remain there on the island when Winter rolled around, what would occur?

    Although the book "The River" was alittle too much perhaps. It seemed to be much as hachet, but yet not. but I still can say that the books were quite enjoyable. :)

    I read a lot, even tho I hate reading, my teacher keeps yelling at me and calling home because I don't have a book to read in class.

    I hate it when they call home cause I get in trouble, I get in trouble for finishing two books in 5days, now I have to find another book to read. Any idea's?

    You should all read The Torn Skirt by Rebecca Godfrey. It's "a hot book, a thrilling romance of teen rage and longing," says the person I quoted. I liked it. It's short and not boring. It's Canadian, too. My Mormon friend liked it.

    I wonder if there are any torn skirts in it, or is that just a metaphore. If you haven't noticed already I'm using big words, I think I'm going to make a show about me doing stupid stuff.

    A girl can say anything, and you'll say: "Oh but it sounds good."

    I think I'll go socialize with real people now...

    It's not really a romance. It's just about a girl and she has this obssession with street girl and she follows her. There's hookers and drugs and murder. It's great. And there is one actual torn skirt, I do believe.

    Oh my mistake Across_The_Stars I figured it to be a romance novel, but if it is not, maybe I should read it. :)

    Finally a book that has what the title says, doesn't mean I'm going to read it.
