We're all forgetting to mention one of the best books ever: The Catcher in the Rye, JD Salinger!!!!!!! Don't ask why, but I truly love this book so much I could read it over and over.

You confused me, I'm sorry....which Mel Gibson movie?

One copy and no one's allowed to touch it until they're old enough to read AND understand it. It's one of my few cherished pieces in the bookcase.

Sorry at a lame attempt at humor. I am a book lover and should have known better.
The movie is Conspiracy Theory, with Mel Gibson and Julia Roberts. Its actually a pretty good film.

Don't worry about it!! It went over my head, sorry! Actually, I don't think I've ever even seen that movie anyway (which is odd because I like Mel Gibson)...I'll have to watch it now.

Has anyone ever read The Color of Water by James McBride? I LOVED that book! That book is on my read again list.

I was glad to see I am not the only James Patterson fan. This is a great thread. I will definately be visiting the book store for some of the books mentioned. Currently I am reading Lifeguard by James Patterson and prior to this I was on a Nora Roberts kick, her JD Robb series. I love to read, and although I don't get to do it often enough, (but I guess Junie B. Jones counts now ) I am looking forward to burying myself into some of your picks.
One more thing, I read Angels & Demons, and couldn't put it down......not thrilled with the ending though.
No one here has mentioned The Gold Coast....great book

I just started Twelve Sharp by Janet Evanovich. It's really a chick book, and Stephanie Plum is hilarious.
