that you have read all the way through? I'm sad to say that mine is Green Eggs and Ham :( well not sad actually because my kids love it but sad that i've not had a chance to read anything for myself in i can't tell you how long. And I LOVE to read-i believe the last semi-adult book I read was a sweet valley high novel-one of the originals not the comeback series. However I bought a new book at the bookstore a few weeks ago HOT PROPERTY by Carly Phillips-romance novel I believe and have been waiting for a chance to crack it open. I think i'm going to designate Sunday as my reading day--I've longed to read a good book again -one for my self--selfish i know :) So my question. what is the last book you read and / or what do you suggest as a good book to read? My favorite book of all time has to be ELVIS and Me by Priscilla Presley. I've read that at least 100 times and see the movie just as many. My favorite series is the Sweet Valley series created by Francine Pascal

Tha last book i read through all the way would have to be Roots by Alex Haley. It was a rather interesting book about African Americans and one mans ancestors and the life they had to make it where they were. Ive always loved reading so i plan to read some more books in the future and hopefully finish them if my life doesnt continue to be so busy lol

Yes, its pretty much the same as the series of it, but it is more interesting to me to read the book over watching the movie of Roots bc its so much more profound and deeper than one could imagine.

I just finished Queste by Angie Sage last night. I like it but thn again I have been reading the whole Septimus Heap series and have enjoyed them all (Magyk, flyte,physik, and Queste). They are geared to the preteen but I have enjoyed them still.

More fantasy. A young wizards apprentice's adventures and challenges. They are good.

Reading is definitely one of the best things you can do. Personally, I'm a big fan of romance novels - they're entertaining, they're romantic, and they get your blood humming (if you know what I mean). My favorite authors are Nicholas Sparks (ever see The Notebook? He wrote the book that inspired the movie!) and Nora Roberts (VERY well known). My favorite books from Nora Roberts are calls Jewels of the Sun, Heart of the Sea, and Tears of the Moon. It's an irish trilogy about the three members of a family in Ireland who fall in love (of course). It's set in Ireland, which I've always wanted to visit. The books are absolutely amazing, and I love them. You can find her stuff at any Barnes & Noble or Borders, or similar booksellers.

A great romance novel is This Heart Of Mine by Susan Elizabeth Phillips I've read it so many times the book is literally falling apart I need a new copy. I love romance novels as well :)

The first book ever that I've read without breaks, no food, no interruption, in one sitting (ok, I changed position from sitting to lying down to sitting on my bed, but without taking my eyes off the book :D) was Jeffrey Archer's Kane and Abel. Yep it is that good. I suggest you read it as well as its sequel - The Prodigal Daughter. The last book that I've finished though (still in one sitting) was Rosellen Brown's Before and After. She's not as good as Jeffrey Archer, I must admit, but I've been wanting to know how the story will end so I just have to finish it.

I read pillars of the earth all the way through but I'm having a hard time getting thru world without end. I think that one I will have to just read the ending because it has to go back to the library July 9 and I am only one third of the way thru the thousand page book.

The last book I finished was Hitchhiker's Guide to the Universe, though it was probably the 5th time I've read it. I'm currently reading Fragile Things by Neil Gaiman, which is a collection of short stories and poetry. I do most of my reading on planes, when I travel for work. Most of the time, I just don't think to read when I'm at home, but I need something to do while I'm in transit for several hours.

I read a lot of books. However, the last one that I loved to read was "The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari" by Robin S. Sharma. I really was inspired by this book. And I suggest everyone to read it.

I think the last book I read all the way through was "Water For Elephants" which is a story about a man, who after losing both his parents in a car crash, leaves veterinary school to join the circus. This book takes place during the great depression and there is an elephant in the book. If you like a good summer read though, "The Nanny Diaries" and "The Devil Wears Prada" are both great reads. They are based on true stories, which to be are the best books to read, but they are also very entertaining.

The Amber Spyglass, by Philip Pullman. Based on what you said you liked, I'd guess that's not the style you're into, but it was good, until it turned into anti-religious garbage at the end.

The last book I read all the way through was "Magic or Madness II: Magic Lessons". I am currently reading "Drawing Down the Moon" and "Love is the Bond: a Rowan Gant Investigation" The next thing I will probably do is to finally finish "The Spiral Dance".

The last book I read all the way through was "Live With Jehovah's Day in Mind." Excellent book on the 12 "Minor" Prophets. My favorite book has to be "Mankind's Search for God." Masterfully written. Has such good points on all different types of religions. Makes you take a good look at who's doing what and whether you're following God or men. Men always make mistakes. God never does.
