    to jill i read city of ember and it is totally awsome the movie doesnt do it justice p.s. if you read the next books (which you should) i dont think theyre as good as the first ones but you should read them any way.

  35. Christian

    Not everyone is obsessed with the twilight books, I enjoy more adventurous books like Dragonspell and that whole series, and try reading the uglies series that will really get you to think about things.

  36. irene18

    I think harry potter is awesome! I love action books and im obsessed w/ WIZARDS!!! I love wizards of waverly place! This website is awesome. I love to change my avatar around or express my feelings by changing my mood. I also love dogs!!! They are cute.

  37. irene18

    I have also read Chasing Vermeer. I am going to read the sequel to it: The Wright Three. P.S. Irene is my BFF!!!

    I’ve finished the Harry Potter Series, so now I’ll have something to read!!

  39. cookie monster60

    it was great, if you haven,t read the harry potter books you should.

  40. nicholas

  41. silver hare

    Has anyone read Artemis Fowl? If I can, I’ll try to make it. I get out at 2:11, so I might make it in time. To Jill: City of Ember is nice, but I think that Artemis Fowl is better. More action.

  42. me (the awesomeful and prettyful one)

    what time would that be in central time? (texas, oklahoma, and kansas)?
    please answer.

  43. Sunshine_Girl_3231

    Oh, I have to ask, but on a scale of one to ten, I’m probably 7. This will be my 2nd one!

  44. kayla

    i love this site and like i said they could still make it better but i love to read they should also have a thing were u can subscribe to get a book every month and they send you a book each month and the book should be one that the movie just came out and everyone wants to see it or a just popular book also u should ask if they are female or male and if the are teenagers, adults, kids, or babies then that would be awesome you would then get alot of busseiness!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  45. kayla

    i love this sight it is my fav site except they should have a thing at the top to type in a book name and then they should show u the price and give u a breif review of it and they should also name a couple places to buy it at they could make this site a lot better but still i like this site it is awesome to look at books on and also they should have a book of the week or month like a popular book or a book of a movie that just came out!!!!!!!

  46. rickriordanfan

  60. jill

    hey my favorite book is becoming jane.
    I love to read what ever book that my hands on at all times.
    I have an idea that i will try to read 15
    chapter books in about five or eight mouths. I will post about the books the books after I finish and if the books sound good to you buy the book than comment back and tell me if you liked the book or not
    okay first book I am going to read is the
    (city of ember). I have seen the movie but not read the book yet so let is how I got idea of read so many books in this amount of time. I was thinking that it would make the books more cool. Plus I am setting goals for myself now because it is you to do that.
    BYE talk to again after I finish the book or Some comments me to me a question
