I've read it twice and tried to get everyone I know to read it. Did he read the WHOLE book? The first part of the book is rather boring.

Yeah, he finished. He said that some parts were great while others dragged. He really wants me to read it just so he can discuss it with me, though, so I guess that's a good sign. I think it was the ending he was unsure about.

I've looked over your list several times now (like, every time you've posted it or I'd see it when I looked back through my Friends page) but I never noticed before that you were planning on reading Cut. I was just thinking about that book last night. I used to own it and I'm planning on requesting it from the library again. I can't wait til August, though, when I can start reading books seriously again. Even though having pen pals interests me, having to read 10 books about the subject for a research paper isn't that exciting. But I have been reading the book you sent me--THANK YOU--and she's got some really great ideas, like about the binder thing. I really need to chisel out time to spend in prayer, not just right before bed when I fall asleep praying.

well, actually, i'm not posting the same list over and over. i continue to post the strike-thru books that i've finished, just so i can feel as though i'm accomplishing something, but the rest change. i've removed a few books from the beginning (say, i check them out and they just look ew, or i can't get into them), and i add several more each time. i just added cut recently, and i've never read it. so don't spoil it for me!! i'm looking forward to it! :)

and you're so welcome about the book. i'm glad you've found time to start it. i just finished what is very likely the best inspirational non-fiction book i've ever read, the new spirit-controlled woman by beverly lahaye. i'll post about it later, when i can do it justice.

read 100 years of solitude because garcia marquez is the best. (he's also colombian haha.) i've also read prep, and it was good but for some reason i found the ending disappointing. hurry up and read it so i can hear your thoughts. i've heard nothing but good things about the lovely bones. let me know how it is.

i actually just picked up solitude, and it's sitting on my counter, due the 23rd, so hopefully i'll get to it before then. the lovely bones i own, thanks to a lovely friend gifting it to me, which means i prolly won't get to it for a while (i tend to always be leaning toward library books, since they have deadlines, lol). prep i can't friggin find! i had it at one point, but never started it since i was too busy with school. i prolly won't get to it until next month, at the earliest :(
