I wandered into Borders over lunch today.  First time in weeks I've been in a bookstore, which is an oddity.  I walked out with a dozen books.  Shocked

Addicted?  Me?  Never!

That sounds like me, only I do that just about every month.

Same here.  As it is, I'm usually in a bookstore at least once every other week.

I suggest NOT watching the series. Disney tore it to shreds. Sigh .....

Is there any dysney movie that is an improvement on the original?  Only ones I know of are old classics - Pinoccio, and the like.  Everything else seems to get trivialized and sensationalized - and the original author is deleted from any credit (don't know how they get away with that...)

I'm onto my third book by Jodi Picoult! She is fantastic!
So far I've read "My sister's keeper" and "Change of heart". How I'm reading "Handle with care"

P.S Thought I'd bring this thread up again, could do with some more reading material. My new hobby?  Cheesy

My permanent hobby. Wink

Finished reading "The Girl who Played with Fire" by Steig Larsson the other day.  It's the sequel to "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo".  Loved it.  The stories are beautifully crafted.  Also read "Grave Sight" by Charlaine Harris.  I really enjoy her little quick read series.  This is the second one I've gotten into now.

Re-reading the Belgariad and the Malloreon by David Eddings for about the millionth time. Nearly finished 'Seeress of Kell'.
Next on my reading list is 'The Curse of the Mistwraith' by Janny Wurts.
Oh and need to pick up the new Dan Brown book.

Working my way through the 5th book of supernatural short stories.
This one is called "Bite" and it is about....vampires.  Big surprise.  I also read "My Big Fat Supernatural Wedding", in which each story had to have a wedding in it. 
These are fun reads.
