  4. The Last Film You Saw ~ Part 2

    Marley and Me, I cried!
  5. I agree, I love escaping into my own little world. I do tend to become attached to characters though especially in series of books.
  6. Second-hand books - can you do it?

    Unless I'm looking for something specific, I often pick up books that are pre-owned as long as they are in a moderate condition, I don't have a problem with it. In fact I went into a well known book store the other day and they had books in the sale that were in a worse condition than the second hand ones I had bought, and they were dearer!!
  7. Your Book Activity Today ~ Thread 15

    Hello I haven't been here for a while, but I have been busy reading! I finally got round to finishing "Sense and Sensibility". Read the first two books of the True Blood series by Charlaine Harris and I'm about three chapters into "The Shining" by Stephen King.
  8. The Last Film You Saw

    One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest.
  9. Dr Who

    I'm loving the series, Matt Smith had really grown on me. I don't mind the break so much as it gives me a chance to get my head around everything that has happened so far. I did find the ending a bit obvious this week though, as soon as I saw the name Melody Pond I knew who she was going to grow up to be!!
  10. British Titles and Society

    I'm British and I have no idea what the titles mean either! Thanks Kell for the explanation!
  11. The Last Film You Saw

    Just been to watch Rio with my nephew, bit predictable but still enjoyable to watch. Kept him quiet for a while anyway
  12. Do you read magazines often?

    I read magazines like Take A Break and Chat, but only because my Mum buys them religiously every week, it's the only reading she does to be honest. I used to buy a lot of magazines on TV/Film, crafts and music but I found them quite expensive for what they are, and that most of the stuff that was in them like interviews and reviews can be found online. I would rather spend my money and time on books, where I can sink into my own little world for a while.
  13. The Last Film You Saw

    Fast and Furious 5, I enjoyed it more than I was expecting. Especially as I haven't seen any of the others!
  14. Dr Who

    Although I still don't really have a clue what's going on lol
  15. I cannot read?

    I stopped reading after I left college, but a holiday a few years ago re-ignited my passion as there was not a lot else to do and I haven't stopped reading since!! Try to find something that hooks you from page one!! good luck hope you start reading again soon
