We read it in 8th grade during our Facing History and Ourselves miniunit thing. It was about things like the holocaust. Usua I would just sparknote the book but after starting it I didn't stop.

Shlamdiddly, you rock. :)

And while I could read most books more than once (and I've read Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone more times than I care to admit), let me give a slightly immature example- I don't think it's possible for me to tire of The Phantom Tollbooth

And I read the 4th Harry Potter twice on the day I got it. I'm a sad little speed reader.

I've only recently started to check out the off-topic boards, so I think I missed a lot of the book topics (and missed a lot of other very interesting things, too, I bet).

I often go back and re-read at least parts of a lot of the books I read, but a couple that I've re-read from cover to cover is 'In the Skin of the Lion' and 'The English Patient' by Michael Ondaatje (this is before the movie came out, which, btw, had only a little to do with the book). Also The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy and many of the story collections by Ann Beattie.

Loved The Lovely Bones, although it's a bit tough to read.

Lois Duncan... Did she write Killing Mr.Griffin? Or am I hallucinating? I can't remember.

Oh man.
Family Guy, anyone?
I starred in a short film called Magnetic Personality. Check it out!

Yes, I read that.
Apparently you are not a Family Guy fan...
Does anyone else question this, or is it just me?
