    Don Quixote

    Which is becoming an enjoyable book. I doubt anyone else knows it or has read it.

    I can't concentrate for long enough to read a book...the last one I read was a couple of years back, probably would've been the Aerosmith autobiography.
    This post is highly unlikely to be serious. Please treat it accordingly. Unless it's music-related, in which case I'm damn well right.

    Ok, whats the weirdest thing anyone ever reads.

    I admit that I have read those 'coffee break' stories in my Mums' Woman magazine the odd time and also you can't help but read the back of cereal boxes.

    I'm reading a Dean Koontz novel. It's an interesting book. Dean Koontz is one of my favorite authors. I either read a John Saul novel or a Dean Koontz novel, they're both great suspense novel writers.

    OMG why Personally I have never met such an interesting book (hmmm rather being six books :-? ) When I bought it/them in December 2001 I read everything for two weeks!

    As for me, currently I'm reading ... for my exams :(

    I love the movies! 'The two towers' is my fave of 2003 so far (I know it was out last year but I only saw it on January 1st). I tried reading the books and I couldnt get into them!
    Unlike Harry Potter where I prefer the books to the movies (which I also love)

    Totally agree! The first hundred or so pages were also difficult for me but after that it goes smoothly until the end and I even didn't want to stop reading

    I'm reading the book of 'Catch Me If You Can', it is so different from the movie, and WAAAY funnier...

    PS: If you are looking for an answer in your lifes, try to read: 'The Alchemist' by Paulo Coello, it is by far, the best book I've ever read .

    I am reading 'The Ghost of Tricia Martin' (which has a story line almost as genius as the title ...yeah, well it's Sweet Valley High- what do you expect?)
    I should be reading 'To Kill A Mockingbird' (for English) which actually seems quite good so far.
    It became scond nature,
    So easy to see,
    Myself as a reflection,
    Of what you thought of me.

    If you mean the most important book by Miguel de Cervantes, huge Spanish author, ("Don Quijote" in original) then yes I've read it. It's very symbolic and touching. I've also seen a play based on the book and Cervantes' life, and I enjoyed that as well.

    I'm currently reading Joseph Heller's "Catch-22" nearly finished now! It's hilarious, a really good book.

    Err right now I'm reading a French Literatue book "Fables"!

    If you want to read it, I'll send you a copy.

    Warning: Stories are childish and might get boring after the first two lines.

    I have it for the final exams. :evil:

    I'm reading this book called "Red Sky In The Morning" by Elizabeth Laird. It's a book for younger readers, but my mate loaned it, saying it's really moving, and amen to that, it really is.
