As for how much I read: every time I have a chance, seriously, I can't think of a life without books. I'm a slow reader thought, I enjoy every single word when i like a book and I don't care about ending it soon, and yes again, I would chose a book over a movie easily when i'm alone (a movie is better when you are with other people for obvious reasons ^^)
Did you read the Sword of Truth series? If so, why would you ever pick up another Goodkind book again?

It's funny I stumbled on these books the other day as I was going through old stuff. I never even got to the parts where Richard murders pacifists. The chicken that wasn't a chicken, but was pure EVIL is what did me in. So much rape in those books too wtf.

Re: The "Book" thread.

big thread - not reading through the whole thing yet, so thought I would just answer OP to contribute.

What are you currently reading?
Finished the Song of Fire and Ice series 3 months ago by GRR Martin. Currently reading the Harry Hole series by Jo Nesbo - up to Redeemer

Who are your favourite authors?
Dean Koontz, Douglas Adams, GRR Martin, Nesbo is also pretty good. tomorrow I'll have a whole other list

Any books your looking forward to?
ehhh... not currently

Favourite ever books?
wooohh...Hitchhiker's guide, Hideaway

How often do you read?
Every day if I can

How many books do you read?
How long is a piece of string

Do you believe the merits of books outweight the merits of movies?
mmmm...I believe they can't be compared. each has it's own merits. All I know is that it is difficult to write a book. I have had one in the Kindle store for over a year now. Was supposed to finish the second one end of last year - just too tough.

Each time someone mentions the original post it reminds me of the fact I missed at least one "you're", and what seriously was the points in the quatatios round the word Book?? Haha

Cattle, howmdidmyour books turn out? I'm toying with the idea of writing one, but never have the patience.

Does anyone know how I change the title of this thread?

And is anyone interested in a book club? Short stories or something?

Not sure what you wanted changed but I took the quotation marks out.

But here's how you can edit your own thread title. You go to the very first post, click on Edit then click on Go Advanced and there should be an option for you to edit the title.

Re: The Book thread.

So whats everyone's favorite George Orwell novel?

1984 is probably my favorite book of all time,just mindblowing throughout. Animal Farm is obviously great too.

I'm reading Coming Up For Air now, and i'm enjoying it so far although it hasn't grabbed me like the previous two

Easily 1984. Quite an achievement, indeed. Though I liked Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451 and Huxley's Brave New World also, I found Orwell's dystopian novel to be more haunting, thought-provoking and something that just stays with you, even long after finishing the novel.

Re: The Book thread.

I went though a phase of reading the classics when I was 16, and after reading Lord of The Flies and Clockwork Orange, 1984 just didn't grab me. I think Im definitely going to pick it up again though. I reckon I only got in about 50 pages.

Short stories then... Anybody interested in a book club?
