Oh dear, I've just totted up my list of to reads/reading...

To read:

Wasted
Winter in Madrid
The Colour of Magic

Currently reading:
The Thirty Nine Steps
Les Miserables
Girl 99
Weird Sisters
House of Leaves (doubt I'll ever finish this to be honest, it's terrifying )
Nothing to Envy
Alice in Wonderland

And I'm browsing Amazon for more Surprised Help! I can't be the only one with a book list as long as their arm, right?

I used to read loads but unfortuantley I don't get a huge amount of time. However I am currently reading letters from Mitford sisters, which is quite hard going...

I've seriously got about 100 books still to read. affraid I do love reading, but I just don't get the time anymore. No

I'm one of those people that likes to pick up a book and read it from cover to cover in one go rather than just dipping in and out and unfortunately that's just not practical for me.

If you haven't read it, I can only suggest the millenium triology

Oh, who's that by?

I've found another I want to download - The Hangmans Daughter. Read the sample earlier and it's really captivating!

Do you not get confused reading so many at once?

I struggle with one at a time Laughing

Haha I couldn't handle more than one at a time! I have over 200 books I haven't read on my Kindle at the moment though...I've had to start ignoring my emails with the free books that day, because it's just getting out of hand.

I'm on my 3rd book this week Embarassed

Mostly trashy stuff of late, this is my goodreads profile if anyone wants to be friends?
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

If you aren't a member you should be! Brilliant site, especially as you can find books similar to ones you enjoy.

I've just finished one of the best books I have read in quite some time called 'How to Kill a Rockstar'. I cried and cried through the end of that lol.

I think my unreads run into hundreds as I have a kindle and last time I counted I also have between 50-100 unread paperbacks

When I read I read a lot but due to being ill I havent been able to concentrate much I am hoping that I can start reading again now that things have settled down health wise
