What was it, and did you enjoy it? I just finished Stray, by Rachel Vincent. I thought it was one of the best shape-shifting books that I have read to date, it was awesome! I even wrote a review about it at Epinions.com, you can get to the link by going to my website link in my profile. I'd appreciate it if you would read and rate it, thanx!

I just reread the Lord of the Rings. I love his writing and imagination. I reread the trilogy every 5 years or so just to help spark my imagination.

I've never read the LOTR series. I tend to just watch the movies, I'm sure the books are much better and I should read them, I just can't find the motivation.

You really should read the books. Tough the movies surpassed my expectations, the vivid detail and imaginative writing is unlike anything I have read before or since. I have read many different genres and the detail in the Tolkien booksa are extraordinary. They are among the very few fantasy books that are believable. I can believe that middle earth may have at one time been our earth. And though Tolkien denies writing the book with his mind on symbolism and analogy, the parallels he draws are clear.

Well I haven't read something for a while because of our final exams so I can't exactly recall the last book I read. I must take a chance and guess that it was The Memory Keeper's Daughter by Kim Edwards. It's a really entertaining book involving a man who's losing love for his wife because of the guilt he feels when he gave away his daughter because of Down syndrome. It's a really moving book and the title will keep you guessing what the heck it really means. Like, why was it called the memory keeper's daughter in the first place? It's really interesting to see how these families cope with their trouble and how the father tries to cope with his guilt. It's also interesting how the son reacts too. Over all I'd say that this is a really good read for anybody. Just a warning though, it's not suitable for those who love sci-fi or action because there isn't much any. It's really an emotional book.

I'll have to check that book out sometime, as I'm pretty diverse in my reading likes. I'm more a paranormal fanatic but I can read just about anything as long as it's not self-help, as they tend to annoy me.

I just finished a book called the Money Make-over Workbook by Dave Ramsey. These are the type of books that I get into. I could not put this book down. Great! He really changed my view on saving and spending. Made a HUGE difference in my life. I suggest this book.

I'v never been into the help books. I'm more geared toward fiction and fiction only. I like to read a book and get taken away into another time and place, not be reminded of my own life.

I've just finished reading Unleash the Night by Sherrilyn Kenyon. I think that it was a nice book but to be honest I like her other books much better. I like the way she was able to incorporate Greek mythological characters and the myths themselves into her books. If I didn't know any better I'd say that she writes base from facts.

I've wanted to start reading her books, but haven't had the time yet. I also can't just books in a series, I have to start from the beginning. I only own 2 of her books as of now and they are closer to the end of her series, so I'll have to purchase the others first.

I just fininshed a book by Dan Brown, Angels and Demons. That is a fantastic book, so geniously told and extraordinarily vivid. Can say all Dan Brown's books are very much interesting, like the Da Vinci Code. Stray, is a good book, you say. I have never read a book about shape shifting before. Must be interesting since you even wrote a review. Will definitely look it up.

Yes, it was very interesting. I love reading about the Paranormal, and Shapeshifters are only one of my favorite type of paranormal characters. I also enjoy reading about vampires, witches, ghouls, ghosts, and mermaids, as well as many others. I try to write a review about all the books, movies, or products that I use in order to get my opinion out in the world and heard by others. It's only a perk that I get a little bit of extra cash by doing it. My boyfriend read both The DaVinci Code and Angel's and Demons and he loved them. They are both on my TBR list but I end up picking up another book from the pile each time I get around to it. Maybe since I just finished Stray and I need a new book to read I'll read one of those next.

I hardly ever finish books! I did recently finish Gordon Ramsey's autobiography, though! Well written.

Just finished 'Golden Rendezvous' by Alistair Maclean - an oldie but still a classic. Tale of piracy, gold bullion and a nuclear device what more could you want?
