    A fair few- I can't throw them away. As many as I can read. I love books- I would like to have enough to fill one of those walls made of just books. I don't really buy expensive books- I usually get them second hand from Ebay or charity shops. My favourite book is Howls Moving Castle- it is witty, I adore the characters and because it is so familiar to me now- it is comforting so I read it when I am ill or feeling down. I know its kind of a kid book but I think its lovely. Boudica - Dreaming the Serpent by Manda Scott. I have read the other three and this is the last one. I love this series and I can't wait to get a copy. Fantasy- I just like to get away from this world for a while and forget about the bad and even the good of this life adn consider what it would be like somewhere else. If I wanted to learn about the reality of this world or life then I could just watch the news.

    Well, i liked Jane Erye by Charlotte Bronte. I loved it. But I don't read a lot of classics. Maybe try Ethan Frome by Edith Wharton. I started reading Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. But I'm a huge fan of Harry Potter, The Inheritance Trilogy, and The Series of Unfortunate Events.

    I just read Bringing out the dead, not really a classic but a fantastic book none the less. Blew threw it in two days.

    Try reading Rebecca. Not sure who the author is. But the title is called "Rebecca". Its about a possible murder from the 1940s. (The reason I say possible here is because I don't want to give away the ending if you chose to read it.) THERE IS NO SEX OR VIOLENCE IN IT. Just a good page-flipping mystery. You won't want to put it down.
