Actually m.m., is there a "Worst. Book. Ever." thread? Seems pretty obvious but I couldn't find it. I still can't get over how BAD that experience was.

I've been reading the Jodi Picoult books. She is really a good storyteller. And her books are about a variety of interesting subjects alot of people can relate to in their own lives.

I think you should start one. I'll be thinking about my first entry.

I've been reading the Charlie Bone series by Jenny Nimmo. They are a fun series. Alot like Harry Potter with weird creatures and magic. I think my next series will probably be Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer. I've heard they're fun and for some reason I've really gotten into reading these young adult books. Not sure why that is, but who cares anyways. My motto is "a good read is a terrible book to waste" or something like that

Happy reading!!!

Thanks for the recommendation. Just checked on Amazone and the first volumes of both series went right on my wishlist.
