    Which book set you off on a life of crime (reading)?

    I bought "The Killing Hour" by Lisa Gardner back when I was about 16 when my power went out at home for a week and had nothing better to do than to read. LOVED that book, and started reading all her other books. And then moved onto other crime books :)

    Looking for book suggestions

    I suggest Lisa Gardners books. These books are either written in the eyes of a female cop/investigator/marine, or written as a female victim point of view. All her books are written in the eyes of a female.

    Lisa Gardner

    I really love this author. I've read 3 of her books now (The Killing Hour, The Third Victim, The Survivors Club) and I feel saddened when I finish the books because theres nothing more to read! I don't get to live with the characters anymore! So I thought i'd start a thread about her books...

    What book is this?

    No this isn't it :(. The book i'm after was in the eyes of a boy I think. His family were on the boat as well. It wasn't a cargo boat as such, it was more of a boat for taking people to other lands. Maybe an explorers boat. All I can REALLY remember is there was a whole section about the...

    Favorite Color Game

    Red makes everything go faster :P I like black. Some people whine that its not a colour its a shade, but I still like it as a colour. Its every colour, but is often thought to mean nothingness at the same time.

    What book is this?

    Unfortunately I don't remember what my teachers name was. And it wasn't as a subject or study, it was just a book the teacher read us I think because she liked it.

    Question Game

    Made a fuss that some how someone stuck a sticker on the toilet roll holder in the work bathroom saying "WA Shrooms" (WA being a state of australia and shrooms being a drug). Someone then pointed out it said washrooms. How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?

    Pet Peeves

    My partner drives around the parking lot until a spot at the very front opens up. It peeves me because he spends more time looking than it would to walk. My pet peeve is when someone is READY to leave the house and go somewhere, and its quickly "oh let me just quickly put this song on the...
