4 chapters into Jane Eyre (it arrived yesterday) and I'm enjoying it much more than I thought I would.

I'm a shy, introverted 12 year old girl with a love for reading and one direction.
Tell me who I am.

I haven't read it yet but I have a really nice old leather bound edition.

I saw it on ebay and couldn't resist.

I'm writing a book right now. I have about 30,000 words. I'm probably well over half way done, so maybe the final copy might have <50,000 words. I'm not too sure.

The Dark Tower series is massive, not sure if I'll ever get round to it.

I'm pretty much done reading everything Philip K Dick wrote. I've moved onto Kurt Vonnegut. I think he's a better writer but in the sci fi world, his plots aren't as interesting. Most seem to not be those types of books until you get well into them

Yeah I saw the film first and thought it was stellar too, they definitely marketed it wrong though. Quite a few people went in expecting a dirty cop comedy and when Brucy has the breakdown in Amsterdam they were all probably really confused.

I'm still only 80 pages into Jane Eyre because I keep putting it off haha.

jane eyre is amazing

bill bryson - the lost continent is utter tripe so far, stopped reading and opted for 'wild' by cheryl strayed instead and it's so so awesome. horrendously emotional though.

Choke by Chuck, pretty lurid and ludicrous but also compelling stuff, the ending reminded me of Fight Club

Choke has one of the most bizarre/unique plots around, definitely read it.
