Me too. I love reading the Grunts' side of the story. Much more entertaining IMO than the humans.

Ugh I couldn't even finish Lovely Bones, it got boring.

I got it for Christmas, my parents got the superduper illustrated edition! So it's like a brick. Of course they didn't get me the cupcake cookbook I wanted.

Life of Pi is an awesome book, but if you figure out the symbolism in the ending, it is really disturbing

I just got done reading Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (Hunter S. Thompson) and right now I'm on another Dean Koontz book called "Life Expectancy". Also kinda wanna read that World War Z book just because the zombie survival guide was cool as hell.

I hate it when teachers assign books to read. Because they usually suck and it takes reading time away from my own book. Plus I like to enjoy books, not answer questions on every page.

Dude that line pumped me up so much, lol. I can't wait to read Purgatorio and Paradiso. The cool thing about Inferno is that since it's written the way it is you have to actually analyze every line you read.

Lord of the Rings, again. Decided I'd finally read it all the way through and try to comprehend all of it as well.

All the Pretty Horses by Cormac McCarthy. Well, I wouldn't say I'm reading since I picked it up two months ago, read the first 30 pages, put it down and haven't gotten back in to it. It's good, just don't feel like reading...

I read an excerpt, and I thought it was interesting, but I hate anything written pre-1800. I understand it, but I'd rather read something else.
