I'm not much of a reader, but I've just started reading "The Lovely Bones" by Alice Sebold. It's sad, but so compelling i just can't put it down!

Wikisource has come to my aid! Yes it is slightly murder reading a book on a screen, but in the absence of anything better I'm reading Wuthering Heights on my laptop. It's a bit odd.

They have that in my local charity shop, but I don't know whether I wanna read such a sad book.

I'm reading Love and Other Impossible Pursuits by Ayelet Waldman.

Just started reading a book called "Still thinking about you".
Can't remember the author, but it's really good so far!

I'm only half way through so i can't really give a full evaluation of the story yet, but it is definitely a good read! It is sad in that obviously the little girl dies, but it's thought provoking in the way the author depicts the other characters and their different reactions to the events in the story, and i especially like her views of heaven. I never thought i'd enjoy a book based on a murder, but it just written so well that its hard not to like it!

At the moment I'm TRYING to read "The Bourne Ultimatum" because I liked the movie so much, but as I'm finding out it is NOTHING like the movie! :( (And I gotta admit, it's a bit boring.)
