    The Official Book Censorship Thread

    We can have Okonkwo chop off a guy's head(Things Fall Apart),but not a book that has curse words in it. I smell hypocrisy.

    So, I got a PS3 for Christmas

    Me and Lincoln(We're twins irl) also had to take back God of War 3(Kept on messing up, great game though) back two times,and exchange it for Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood. Personally, it is my favorite game of all time. We've already decided to get Infamous for our Birthday.

    Teachers who inspired your love of reading

    None, because I did not like any of their tastes. I didn't get really addicted to reading until I read The Sleeping Doll by Jeffery Deaver.

    A critique of Oprah's book club

    You give me something like Poe, or Shakespeare, I will not read it. You're right about the slow plot lines. Their characters are also horrible.

    A critique of Oprah's book club

    I personally think books like these are not going to get kids to read. I'm 16 and I just hate the classics, but I like reading books that adults like also(Micheal Connelly, Dean Koontz etc.). I'm a big fan of Connelly, but I would not jump out and read a book just because he liked it.

    Michael Connelly: City of Bones

    The first one you said is The Black Echo, the second I'm not so sure.

    Michael Connelly: City of Bones

    That is why he is my all time favorite character. I'm currently waiting for Lost Light, and I'm getting very impatient. Bosch is like a freaking drug.

For Bosch this is more than just another homicide, as the mystery child, beaten and...

    I've really been meaning to get my hands on The Rising,but my library doesn't have it. I'm going to go get it soon once I have some money. So I hope he is good.

    What do you think of the prices of new books?

    Too freaking much. I saw a copy of Dexter is Delicious on opening day. This book series is very underground, and the the hardcover was 25-28$, that is just way too much for a underground series. Softback are perfectly priced though. The less the book cost,the more chance people will buy it.

    Jeff Lindsay: Dexter is Delicious

    I really hate to say this,but I give up. I want my Dexter Morgan from the first two NOT the others. Lindsay is putting the nails in the coffin known as Dexter Morgan. To add to the sadness,because Dex was so bad,he was kicked off number one place in my top 10 :(.

    Elie Wiesel: Night

    It's a good book to learn about how someone went through every day life there. A boring book though,and I wouldn't read it in my free time.

    Plot: Lost Items Found. Paranormal Investigations. Consulting. Advice. Reasonable Rates. No Love Potions, Endless Purses, or Other Entertainment. For Harry Dresden, Chicago's only professional wizard, there have been worse assignments than going undercover on the set of an adult film. Dodging...

    Doubling Up

    I usually have two books going on at the same time. Due to school work on my back,I could not carry three books,so I carry two. The max I have read at one time though would have to be 4,but dropped 2 because they were getting boring.
