I just read The Hunger Games trilogy. A little late to the party, but what an amazing read! I wish there were more.

Hrmmm, I hope it's not just B&N. If it has to be an eBook I have a Kindle so would get it from Amazon. Eek! I hope he's not really limiting it like that! :omg:

I thought all eReaders used the same format - Adobe Reader. So, can you not load Nook eBooks on Kindle?

No idea actually--I just know that I can download my books from amazon to my kindle without being anywhere near a computer so I wasn't sure how/if I could get a Nook book to my Kindle.

I'm reading the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy. Doober thinks I'm a perv. I cannot confirm or deny this. :whistle:


My favorite book was probably The Time Traveler's Wife. I haven't seen the movie because I don't think it will be as good. Just read Her Fearful Symmetry by the same author. It's definitely not as good.

I read Crime and Punishment last year. It was okay...really heavy material and sometimes hard to get through...but it was okay. I have only read one chapter of TBK and I already like it more than C&P.

I loved the Time Traveller's Wife, and no the movie is not as good - not by a long shot but they rarely are. I snapped up her second book as soon as it came out and agree it's nowhere near as good. Great concept but she just didnt carry it off well.

Mt favourite book of all time though is Magician by Raymond Feist, and the many books he wrote following that. They're amazing.

Fifty shades is on my list to read, I've heard good things about it - pornography aside :p

OMG, i ADORE dostoievski!! One of my faves ever! Im a big fan of Crime and Punishment, and Memoirs of the underground. LOVE THEM! I of course own Brothers Karamazov and 3 or 4 summers ago i read it thgrough page 200 or so and i was LOVING IT (that fyodr pavlovich is quite a fascinating character, as well as the brothers, but oh man that father! only dostoievski could write a twisted character like that :p ), but had to leave it cause, as it often happens with dostoievski in my case, it was starting to get to me. Meaning i was starting to get too sensitive and my head was going all wacko for reading such in depth analisis of human behaviour. But the book is still there, in my personal library, waiting for me to be in the mood for reading it again. I also own C&P, memoirs of underground (i recommend this one very much cause its much shorter than brothers, that haves like 1200 pages, lol), the idiot, the player, the double, and humillados y ofendidos (i have no idea the translation for these two words :p ).



Anyways, actually entered here to recommend you this page: GOODREADS.COM

a friend recommended it, and i signed last week, its super fun cause you can rate all the books you read and the page generate recommendations based on your literary tastes. I ve been reading recommendations for me and they are super interesting. Try it, its super fun and easy to use, you only need an email to sign in, and you can share with friends. And please ADD ME! Im Sophie from Buenos Aires, Argentina, there. There are other sophies, but im the only one from buenos aires so you shouldnt have a problem finding me :daezy: .

A couple of days ago I bought the ebook version of

I can't believe that this book has been out for 2.5 months, and I am just now starting to read it. Anyway, I bought it because buying the ebook version saved me 50%! I almost bought the book at Kroger a few days back for $25. Then, I see it on Google play for $12.99!!

Yeah--I really like how e-books are cheaper than their hardback brethren. What I don't like is that paperbacks are still cheaper than e-books so I get frustrated when there is a book I want to grab on e-book, but I know I'm spending more money than if I just went to a bookstore and picture up the paperback.

Of course, because I have a book-buying compulsion, the prices haven't really stopped me. :whistle:

Apparently the new Odd Thomas book is out. I haven't really liked any since the first... but I keep reading them anyways, and Koontz has been a little better lately (23 Shadow St was dumb... but the one with the detective and the serial killer that I can't remember the name of was pretty good).
