I hope that youíll like them! I loved them; much better than the films. I first started reading them when I was 17 or 18, and read the first couple. Then Iíd re-read the previous ones right before the next one came out. I remember I read the fifth one in like 2 days when it came out, only stopping to eat and sleep a little! Lol I used to be really bad at reading (any book) before bed because Iíd only intend to read a chapter or two, and then suddenly Iíd look up and it was 3am - oops!

I still havenít finished Elizabeth is Missing. It keeps reproaching me from my shelf because I started it nearly 3 months ago now.

Thereís another book that Iíve only read a couple of pages of too. Itís called Healing Schizophrenia. I feel bad because Iíve kind of Ďstolení it. I borrowed it from the MH centre for 3 weeks back in November, but theyíre so disorganised that they havenít asked for it back yet. I will return it, when I finish it, but that will probably take me many months as itís quite thick, and intellectual about meds etc.

I miss being able to read properly...

Now I'm reading David Hume's Enquiry into Human Understanding and I'll be done with the LotR The Fellowship of the Ring by tomorrow. 95% time the books are better, but i think Peter Jackson did the books justice. There is very little he left out in this first one.
So far I am really enjoying it. I wasn't sure if I would, since I usually read futuristic science fiction novels. My mother gave me this book along with The Chamber of Secrets and the Prisoner of Azkaban.

I've never read LotR. I've seen the movies though.

I recently read a really good book called Clockwork Angels by Kevin J. Anderson. It was inspired by the Rush album of the same name. I just purchased Clockwork Lives by the same author.

I love really good books that put everything on hold. I used to read a lot. It was one of my outlets. Ever since I got a computer that changed. I'm trying to get back into reading again, because it is so much enjoyable than watching YouTube videos.

I'll be taking a lot of books with me when I move to Kitchener. I think reading will help with the transition and loneliness.

Both the LOTR books and movies (and The Hobbit) are good. But HP is an easier read IMO.

I will google Clockwork Angels to see what itís about.

I hope that reading will help. I used to love escaping into anotherís world to see things from a new perspective.

Started reading the dice man.....itís about a psychiatrist who determines his actions by rolling dice What are you reading? something compelling about taking random actions like that and the fact that a faux pdoc is the one doing it.

That sounds really interesting. Is it a good book?

I just started it....Iím going to have to say itís got some racist remarks and stuff that you find in older books.....originally published in 1971.....plus the whole idea of psychiatry back then was the analyst which is totally different than today. Have not gotten to the dice part yet. Probably wouldnít recommend just due to the racism etc. I just got sucked in by the concept.

Ah thatís a shame. Yeah I donít think I could deal with that. Yeah itís a good concept, shame it was written so long ago, maybe a modern version would be good.
