Re: Book Reading Challenges

I've always wanted to be part of something like this, but the books that are brought up are not of my genre. I was part of a club back in my high school and that didn't work out because a majority of the members wanted to read something else than what was picked. Where I currently am, there are club...

Re: Which Book Series Is Your Fav.?

I agree with you Marie Dark. The Harry Potter series will always be my number one, hands down :)

I do; however, have a couple of other favorite series because of how unique the themes are portrayed in: Cirque du Freak by Darren Shan and Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead.

The Deathly Hallows have always been an interesting topic amongst the wizarding world. Some believe they never existed; however, others believe otherwise. We already know the answer, thanks to Harry Potter himself. The question is: which one would you choose? Any particular reason why you would choo...

Playstation vs Xbox

As a child I played Playstation and wish I could go back to play my Harry Potter games. I haven't touched Xbox, but I have heard multiple comments since then. What about you? Do you have any opinions to playing Xbox over Playstation or vice versa?

Re: Weird Food Habits

I'm an oddball when it comes to making my breakfast sometimes, mostly eggs or pancakes. I try new things that I can. This is more of an omelette thing, but I do like putting your not so typical vegetables into scrambled eggs and omelettes, like peas, corn, or celery. On top of this, I try to add in ...

As a child, I never was big on reading; however, I always fascinated by Dr. Seuss's books. One of which was Oh, the Places You'll Go!

I agree with you Gail. I do believe that there are, I like to think of them as “short stories,” out there that do catch some people’s interest.

Owning a Creature

If you were to own a magical creature, what would it be and why?

I would love to own a crup because they resemble so much to a dog and I love dogs! Also, they can easily blend into the muggle world.

Re: Week 2 - Discussion: Do Audio books recreate the Magic of Communal Storytelling?
