If I knew it was this bad, I wouldda waited for about two years and then bought it in paperback for the price of $4, including taxes. I paid $9.99 for my Kindle version. I just can't help thinking of the money I couldda saved. :roll:


As far as I now, in Russia Brown's new book will issue in December.

P.S.
What is the paperback? Do you return it back after reading? :-)

Now I am reading a novel "Mont-Oriol" written by French novelist Guy de Maupassant.

Are you planning to buy it?

What's a paperback book? Did you check the dictionary? I really don't know what's the definition they have for it, but from what I understand paperback book is a book that is printed on cheap quality paper, and the price is cheaper than that of a hardcover book because of the differences in covers. Hardcover books are sometimes used as a collection. People don't normally do that with paperback books (you don't wanna look cheap and crazy, do you :lol: ). Also, most paperback books are small, pocket size. They're convenient to read while on the plane. The ink is easily smudged. The font is super small. The bottom line is it's a read-and-throw-away book to me.

Yeah, you'll return it after reading if you borrow one at the local library or bought it by accident at a bookstore. Otherwise, it's yours to keep. I keep my hardcover books as my collection whilte donating the paperback ones to the library. It's hard to keep the paperbacks for long since after a period of time the ink will start to fade due to the cheap quality paper.

Hello Friends,
Reading books is my hobbie other than music and gaming....You'll generally find with books....Nothing Last Forever,Five Points Some One,Wind mills of the God,One night at call center,DaVinci Code,etc are my favorite books.Latest book that I have read is Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus by Dr. John Gray. It was a great experience reading it. This book puts light on the reasons which cause conflict between Men and Women.....

"Camp nowhere" by R.L Stine. Just going to start reading "Shadow Girl" by the same author.

Both are part of the Nightmare Room series, which are horror books for teenagers.

I've just finished reading "Fractured" by Ruth Dee. She is a sufferer from Multiple personality disorder and wrote about her life. I still can't believe it is a true story. How can people go through this kind of life?

The Magician's Elephant by Kate DiCamillo, very simple story yet captivating. I finished it within hours which I had not done it for a long time, because I wanted to know how my guess would end.

wow I love Brontes; Charlotte & Anne.

They`re incredible.


Now I finished a book by Cecelia Ahren " Where rainbows end".

I admire the concept of true friends. At the beginning I thought it`s just for teenagers but when I kept reading it I relised the words beyond the lines.


Don`t miss it {-;

'Tis, by Frank McCourt. I've got his three autobiographies (Angela's Ashes, 'Tis and Teacher Man) and I absolutely adore him. I was shocked by the news of his death last year.
