The good thing that happened. I had ordered some books. They arrived today. Just not the ones that I had ordered. I call the company. The connection was bad, I had to ask the lady a couple times just to make sure I heard her right. The wrong order I can keep at no charge to do with as I please. That's ok, as I am sure I will like three out of the four books that came. The fourth book is an animated childs book. The title of which is "Shrek" This is the ugliest Shrek I have ever seen. I read the reviews on the back: "Sure to enchant any child lucky enough to read it....Such an ingratiating, cheery book that no one will be able to resist it"-The Washington Post Book World. I am not seeing that a child would like it. "Before Shrek made it big on the silver screen, there was William Steig's SHREK' a book about an ogre who leaves his swampy home to go out and see the world...and ends up marrying the most stunningly ugly princess on the planet'" The other three hold some worth while promise. The Gardner Heist Ulrich Boser.. The true story of the world's largest unsolved art theft. Catfish and Mandala by Andrew X. Pham A Safe Haven Harry S. Truman and the Founding of Isreal Allis Radosh and Ronald Radosh Looks like I have some reading to do. What do you like to read.

Congrats to some extra books. Who knows why you received them.- I really love books and am a real book worm. If I start a fiction book I have to read it from cover to cover as fast as possible. I also forget everything around me. When I was a little girl, I used to get into some stories to such an extend that I was literally part of the story and when I reached the last word it was as if I woke up from a dream or came back from another world. When my children brought books home from school, I even read those. Nowadays I don't read as much fiction anymore, but sometimes I get hooked on a nonfiction book as well but it is easier to stop reading with those. So I am able to stretch the reading adventure over a few days. Have fun reading!!!

I really don't like to read those types of books. What I like to read are those that contain naked women looking at you like they wanna do something naughty to you. They're also called books, right?

Hi. tjurcham. I love to read suspense and mystery novels. I also love to read fantasy and young adult books too. Horror books is another type of book genre that is my favorite too.

I used to only read biographies. Really they are pretty boring. I have recently opened up to reading more of a variety. More enjoyable.

Chicken Soup, I own one my daughter left after she moved. She like those books as well. I might give it a try. You think Shrek the movie character is ugly? You should see this creature on the book. Almost makes me sick.
