It's been awhile and thought I would drop some book titles I have read or what I'm reading now.
I'm reading now: "Interview with a Vampire" by Anne Rice and "Ordinary Life" by Elizabeth Berg.
Just recently finished "Cloud Nine" and "Firefly Beach" by Luanne Rice. If you are into general fiction with a touch of romance (not like the Nora Roberts or Danielle Steele's romance's) check these out. Luanne Rice is very good and I'm working on reading her whole collection. I know I have a lot to go, but when you find an author you enjoy and want to read more of it is well worth it.
I'm starting to venture out to more authors and hopefully I have found some new ones that I will enjoy. My shelf of unread books is overwhelming, but hey, reading a good book in a cool bubble bath is a wonderful thing on a summer evening when your stress level is high as a kite and the temp outside is nearing 100 degrees.
I've been a member for awhile, but I never post.
I have a request.
I told one of my good friends that I would find her a (preferably) really old copy of Madame Bovary, but one that is in English. Our school has one similar to what I'm looking for. (The copy my school has was published sometime in the forties.) This is supposed to be a birthday present, and her birthday is on the 17th of this month.
I'd really like to be able to find her a copy of that book and buy it for her. (I also want to find the movie of it that she saw, which is in French and has subtitles.)
Anywho, if any of you can be of any help, it would be appreciated.
I need to know of any used book stores, or book stores that only sell really old books are, if you know of any. Thanks.
I'm still working my way through Stranger in a Strange Land by Robert Heinlein. It's a pretty good read so far, I just haven't had much time lately.
Has anyone here read A Clockwork Orange and, if so, would you recommend it? I really like science fiction, but I'm a little thrown off by the movie trailers I've seen for this one.
Can anyone recommend some good lesbian fiction? Most of the ones I'm finding are geared toward teenagers or to people just coming out. I'd like something where the characters are actually *happy* to be lesbians.
