I've started reading Pride and Prejudice for the first time ever. It's really good! I'm already enjoying it more than the other two Austen books I've read. I like how even though the novel was written so long ago, a lot of the humour still works (same with Austen's other books really).

I have it and have yet to read it! Which are the other two books of hers that you've read?

I just read Dalai Lama(Tenzin Gyatso). Very sad, but inspiring. It's kind of amazing to me how we hear so much about the holocaust, but not about how the same thing happened in Tibet more recently. This was a pretty sad book, but it was also hopeful and inspiring. Hopefully one day the Dalai Lama and his exiled government can go home.

I just finished reading Jennifer Rogers Spinola's Southern Fried Sushi series. It too me pretty much two days to finish them because I couldn't get enough of them! They're so lighthearted and funny (as you can probably tell by the titles alone), but they're also super heartfelt and even crazy intense at the same time! It's not your atypical romantic comedy, that's for sure, and they're so worth the read :)

Mom gave me a new book to read...it's called Grayson: about a swimmer who must help a baby whale find its mother off the coast of California. It's very interesting to me, actually--although I haven't quite started reading it yet...

Just picked up The Fault in Our Stars. I've heard it was pretty good and I love John Green, so let's give it a try. The movie coming out in June helps motivate me too.

I'm just wondering, has anyone read the Divergent book series? I have and I love it so much. And is anyone excited for the film? I am!

Has anyone here ever heard of Temple Grandin? My mom just borrowed one of her books from the downtown Mansfield library, and it's called The Autistic Brain.

This is a book I've been wanting to read. I've actually never read anything by John Green.

As a history major, I do a lot of reading. I had around 20 books to read this quarter alone. My favorites were: The Beast Within, The Leopard, and If He Hollers Let Him Go.

I finished The Selection a few days ago. And I finished the second book in the series which is called The Elite yesterday. And I love the series! I have a major crush on Prince Maxon. Hehe! I definitely recommend this eries to anyone that likes YA,romance and Teen books. It reminds me of the tv show The Bachelor.

Oh me gosh, that's like a Dumbo reference right there! (Because that was his mother's name...)
