    I rarely read books, but I have been reading Geri Halliwell's first autobigoraphy 'If Only' recently. I finished it last night and I have to admit, it is well written and an engrossing read

    Hmm? If you're sure, I wouldn't mind getting a copy and reading it. I thought she had 2 biographies out?

    I have the book too, I think I read it twice actually. It was pretty interesting to read about the beginning of the band, but I thought a lot was skipped once they actually became famous.

    Oooh crap, Happy belated birthday then Wrenness !! (I have the habit of adding 'ness' to everyone's name, as you can see it doesnt always work) :-?

    Actually I thought you were older too, not just from your picture but also just from reading your diary. That's not a bad thing though

    I have even mentioned in my diary recently how old I am cause of all the doubt, I know I tend to write like im older, not exactly sure why or how, but its definitely there. In fact most people online tend to think im mid-twenties untill I instruct them otherwise. I think its cause I dont use a whole lot of internet lingo.

    lol, heh, hehe, brb, afk

    Thats about as far as it goes.

    Who another weird thing I read:
    Bakers Dozen, perhaps cause I dont know a single family that gets along that well.

    Wren - you sound more mature probably because you have a very wide vocabulary and the way you form your sentences is always very good, like written word should be. I would think this is a result of reading books, among other things - which is obviously very cool :cool:

    I'm reading the last few pages of "The House Of The Spirits" by Isabel Allende, it's quite intense and interesting.

    I thought it was alright, not the best, but certainly not boring. This is one book that the movie doesn't do justice, if you were thinking of doing it that way

    ^^ LOL! nah I wasnt coz our English teacher said it wouldnt help and then we would jsut have to read the book and watch a boring movie. He said that the movie didnt really follow the book and we would have ot read the book to write our essay questions on in the exam!

    ^^ I thought the book was good. It's hard to really get into at the beginning, as it moves quite slowly, but I always think race-related issues are kinda interesting.
    Yeah, don't even bother with the movie! Watching it would probably confuse you more than anything.
    It became scond nature,
    So easy to see,
    Myself as a reflection,
    Of what you thought of me.

    It wasn't bad actually!

    Ok, I forgot the story line, forgot everything bout it, but I'm sure I got hold of it and read it someday!

    Anyway,I've finished reading Lord Of The Flies for my GCSE's which has loads of powerful allegories on the evil in society,but I still hated the story with all those snobbish school boys!The best book I read is this American sex novel called Rubyfruit Jungle,about this lesbian.

    Just thought I'd bump this up. ;-)

    Currently reading "Nemesis" by Asimov.

    Just finished Arthur C. Clarke - "2001 The Space Odyssey", and "Northern Lights" by Philip Pullman before that.
