    I read 3 books in my life. They happen to be all in 3 months because our exam was based on them -_-. I've read other books, but never finished them.

    I HATE BOOKS. From now on if I have to read a novel, I'm using an audio book.

    I got nothing...

    Currently reading 'Love Letters of Great Men' it's a really small book and I really should have read it all by now, but I only like to read it when I'm cuddled up in my dressing gown with my legs up on the desk and feet on the radiator while it's late at night and very dark in my room. One of those, got to be in the right mood kinda books, but really rather sweet I must say.

    Most recently read book was in my English class.

    Title: The Glass Menagerie

    Score: 3/10
    Reasoning: Very bland. It's about some hopeless lady trying to get a date.

    Last book I read was a book I read for school. A Long Way Gone by Ishmael Beah.

    I'm usually not very interested in books but I found myself reading ahead because its a pretty crazy story. True story about young kids from Sierra Leonne fighting for the military constantly hopped up on all kinds of drugs. I'd give it a 9/10, it really held my interest.

    Book I read before that(skipping some boring books read in school) was Rainbow Six by Tom Clancy. Which I read like 5 years ago. It was an awesome story but Tom Clancy goes into WAY too much detail. The amount of detail he goes into does make for some great action scenes, he makes it so you can picture them perfectly in your mind. 10/10 for the story but overall a 7/10 because some parts were way too boring. Would make for an awesome movie but would probably be way too vulgar if they made it just like the book.

    You're reading all 1,001 tales?

    I'm about to finish reading Ender's Shadow. I've been reading it during my free period every other day for a few weeks. Great Sci-Fi book; Orson Scott Card is an amazing author.
    I'd give this book a 10/10, it has everything: politics, religion, fighting, murder, conspiracies, space wars, and 12 year old prostitutes!!!
    I'm about to start reading Shadow Of The Hegemon. It's another book by Card, and a continuation of the enderverse.

    Last book I read was Cross Country - another from James Patterson's book factory that pumps out 4 or 5 books a year. But I'm not complaining. And certainly not about Cross Country. Not my favourite Alex Cross, and I can't help but picture Morgan Freeman constantly. Still a good book. And like all Patterson books, short, sharp chapters and its really far to easy to read half a book in one session.

    Currently reading Looking Good Dead - By Peter James. Only read the first 100 pages, it's interesting enough. Wish it was a little bit faster. Yes, there was a brutal murder quickly enough, but I want to say 'screw you' to character development and get back to hacking people up.

    Maybe this should go in the entertaining section, even though books aren't entertaining.
