Who's your favorite? Why? And what do you like about that character most? cherry

I'm not going to answer this, I'm only asking. xD

Or would Nina rather it was Supernatural?

Let's talk about this overrated show turned manga that features a gay protagonist and his harem that he disses for his best friend and enemy a teenaged protagonist who starts a war to make the world a better place for his little sister and acquires a geass and a pizza hut-loving squatter who does not seem to know that it is not good to use other people's …

PostSubject: Project: Read a BOOK.    Sun May 29, 2011 7:51 pm

As the title says. The aim of this is to make sure that all of us, even if it's short, can say that we have read a book or two. Or maybe, a great number already. It doesn't matter how you read the book (online, downloaded or a physical object) what matters is that you read it. List down here the books that you have read (so that we know if you are a bookworm or not) and are planning to read. If you can, put a deadline, too. Smile It doesn't matter what language the book is or if it was translated by people online, what matters is that you have read it from cover to cover. OH YEAH! This does not include picture/kiddy books or graphic novels.

Here's my list: (if I used the strike tag, that means I've read it and will try to review/put up a summary of it.)
  • A Walk to Remember
    The Notebook
    The Princess Bride
    A Christmas Carol
    A Little Princess
    Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

    Anne of Green Gables
    Anne of Avonlea
    Anne of the Island
    Dracula
    Grimm's Fairy Tales
    Hans Andersen's Fairy Tales
    Heidi
    King Arthur and His Knights of the Round Table
    Little Women
    Oliver Twist
    Rip Van Winkle and Other Stories
    Tales of the Greek Heroes
    The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
    The Adventures of Robin Hood
    The Adventures of Tom Sawyer
    The Extraordinary Cases of Sherlock Holmes
    The Great Adventures of Sherlock Holmes
    The Secret Garden
    What Katy Did
    Wuthering Heights
    Ella Enchanted

    The Three Musketeers
    A Tale of Two Cities
    Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There
    The Thief Lord
    Dragon Rider
    Inkheart
    Inkspell
    Inkdeath
    Diary of a Wimpy Kid
    Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules
    Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Last Straw
    Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days

    Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Ugly Truth
    Notes from a Totally Lame Vampire
    The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones
    The Mortal Instruments: City of Ashes
    The Mortal Instruments: City of Glass

    The Mortal Instruments: City of Fallen Angels
    The Infernal Devices: Clockwork Angel
    Septimus Heap: Magyk
    Septimus Heap: Flyte
    Septimus Heap: Physik
    Septimus Heap: Queste
    Septimus Heap: Syren
    Septimus Heap: Darke
    The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel: The Alchemyst
    The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel: The Magician
    The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel: The Sorceress
    The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel: The Necromancer
    The Picture of Dorian Gray


Yes, that is the long list of books I plan to read.
Start date: February 22, 2010 (yes, I have already started)
End date: May 31, 2012
I haven't even added the...10(?) books I plan on buying within the year.
Do not get shocked if reviews and summaries start popping up left and right here.
....40 books, more or less, in under a year? God, help me!

I just scrolled through the list. It's really long. But to be honest, i jelly.

Why? Because I actually want to read books to improve my writing but I can't pick one, and I might tire of it immediately. I really can't have the patience you bookworms have.

Well, you didn't state manga, so is it allowed then? Heh, I doubt.

I still can't believe you can read all those books in just a year. Really.

Well, I've read those 20 (did not include the Notebook, A walk to remember, Inkhear/spell/death and Dragon Rider because I read them before the start date) books from End of Feb to sometime in December last year. Not so spectacular. That's like 10 months? 2 books a month. Very slow. that means...yep, I will finish this in 2012. And to think I got stuck with A Tale of Two Cities and Wuthering Heights.

Yes, manga is not allowed. It is a graphic novel. You should try reading...Tales of the Greek Heroes. They're just summarized stories of Greek Mythology. You will probably like it. Or King Arthur and His Knights of the Round Table. What's nice about them is that you don't need to read it continuously because each chapter is more or less stand-alone. If you want, try searching for a free ebook of this. And then, try reading it.

Hm, okay then. But won't be able to even come close to your reading habits.

Might try it. When I feel like it.

Oh, I almost forgot, I did read a Light Novel, but hey, I won't consider that. I just read bits and parts of it. The parts that I found interesting, I mean.

My reading habits are bad. Especially when I have a "not up to reading" streak. Like now. I can't move on much with Magyk.
Lol, I remember me reading Fate/Zero translation. I just went "ctrl + F Gilgamesh/Archer" and read those parts. Laughing

Ah, really. But I'd imagine my reading habits are worse. I don't remember reading books like those. If I did, I probably didn't finish them and forgot all about them.

I knew you'd do that. Of course you would.

LOL. Oh well, but you're bound to be more committed than I. So, maybe you'll be better.

Me? Committed? What makes you think that?

I'd only read one book at a time. I wouldn't list them down like this. If I did, I'd get less motivated to actually finish them. I don't like long lists.

You are committed. You actually don't cram. Not like me.

Well, okay, but as this is a project, you should try reading one book. No matter how thin it is.

No, I cram for tests. What made you say I don't? I'm still quite surprised you consider me committed.

Anyway, any non mythical books you can recommend? I always like a good story.

I only study for tests 10 minutes before said test. At least you study the previous day/night.

Dracula!
Alice Adventure's in Wonderland - if you want to be confused and to read a short story that you can finish in a day's worth.
The Extraordinary Adventures of Sherlock Holmes
Diary of a Wimpy Kid - it's funny! I recommend this the most.

I might try Sherlock or Diary. I don't know where to get my hands on those though. Maybe I'll try the magical internet.

I'll lend you Diary. Or Sherlock. Whichever. Although, Diary has already passed by many, many hands.

I'll go with Diary, then. So I'd have a reason in case I potentially damage it. Just kidding.

Thanks to you, I've read the whole Diary of a Wimpy Kid series. Up until The Ugly Truth, I mean. Hooray.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid
Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules
Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Last Straw
Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days
Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Ugly Truth

And I'm planning on reading Sherlock Holmes next. That is, if I find time to actually read it.
