Books you're reading or want

Post by Diehardpetrafan:) » Tue Aug 10, 2021 4:29 pm

Right now I want A Scene in Between by Sam Knee, and I'm reading David Copperfield which are both very cool books in my opinion.

What are you guys keeping your eyes on to get and/or reading?

I'm not really a bookworm but these two are really cool and I have some others on my shelf

Just started reading East of Eden by John Steinbeck. I've read a few of his other books, but just getting around to what's probably his most acclaimed novel now.

Was reading A Brave New World which was quite good, then I stopped because I had to read Pride & Prejudice for a course I was doing (not very good). Haven't read much in recent years but I was always quite fond of the Sherlock Holmes series, Lord of the Rings & Ana Karenina

I've heard of that just recently somewhere but I can't remember where…

My sister is just starting Pride and Prejudice too! I think she's around chapter 13

Oh yes... I believed I watched some of the Love comes softly series when I was a kid.

Thanks! I will have to check it out. Just finished East of Eden a week ago. What a profound novel! No wonder it won him a Nobel Prize.

My mom just bought that for me at a bookstore! It's a 2-in-1 with The Wayward Bus
Here are all the books I've gotten
The yellow one is Emily Dickinson poems and the red one the JS books I mentioned before. The FSF book is This Side of Paradise
(the first one is 110 years old)
