GENERAL CHAT » THAT IS YOU FAVORITE BOOK?
i live in bolivia and the girls from my school are a bunch of BIRD BRAINS! NONE of them like to vread so... since i know the brittish love a nice cup of tea and a good book wich one is you favorite?mine is a comedy book called just discusting.(if your not brittish and like to read than do feel free to say whats you favorite book too).
ah come on, dont you peaple like to read?
i like diary of a wimpy kid
and a book called contest by matthew reilly
Well, I'm not British, but I read all the time! My dad read a lot of classic books to me as a kid, ( No," see spot run" stuff. )
Let's see, favorite books, well, I really like studying the Bible.
My favorite story books are ( not in favorites order)
I. " The Hobbit" by J. R. R. Tolkein
2. " The Theatrical tapes of Leonard Thynn" by Adrian Plass ( If you think the title is funny, you should read the book. It's hilarious!! : D)
3. " The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr Hyde" by Robert Louis Stevenson
( The book really isn't like a horror film, it's more of a mystery story.)
4. Pretty much any mystery book by Agatha Christie ( I especially like the ones with the detective Hercule Poirot, and also the ones with the mysterious detective " Mr. Quin" )
5. " A Christmas Carol" by Charles Dickens ( if you've ever seen any movie version of the story and liked it, you should read the book. It's ten times better, and shorter than most of Dickens' works)
6. I must confess, I still like some children's stories. I really like Rohld Dahl books, ( "Charlie and the Chocolate factory", "James and the giant peach", "Matilda", etc. ) and I still love doctor Suess, ( my favorite is " How the Grinch stole Christmas" It's so sweet! ).
7. Finally, I know this isn't " stories", but I really have gotten into poetry. I like the old British poets best, (Tennyson, Shelly, Hardy, Houseman etc.) Some people think that's weird, but I think sometimes older stuff is cooler.
Have you ( or anyone else on this discussion) read any of the books I mentioned?
OMG loveshaun19 i just asked 4 1kkkkkkkk ive seen many of the movies of some of your books and know dr seusse well do you really read the bible?its soooooooooooooooooo BIG
Sorry, I don't have just one favorite and I tend to be wordy! I'll try to restrain myself.
Yes, I really do like the Bible. It is long but I don't try to read it all in one day. I enjoy studying it, because it's God's word. It's like an instruction book for us. The Bible also gives an account of Jesus and the time he spent on earth, so that he could die and rise again, to give us a hope of eternal life. I'm a Christian, and I believe this is true.
Plus, if you just like good, true stories, the Bible is full of them! Romance, Action, you name it , it's got it. My favorite book of the Bible, is Ecclesiastes. It pretty much takes an honest look at our lives, and what we futility try to find happiness in, ( power, Money etc.) It's a little hard to understand, but it sums up with how to serve The Lord believe, in him and do his work is what life's all about. I also like Proverbs,
A lot of famous sayings are taken from the book of Proverbs. It's like " The Book of Virtues", but shorter and the sayings are easy to remember, and they apply to our lives.
Which of my " book movies" did you like the best?
you did it again kkkkkkkkkkkkkk i have a different kind of bible in my relegion but its pretty much the same basic principal... to learn whats beond death and decide from whats right and whats easy
the bible is never easy to understand . chocolate factory, cristmas carol,DR seusse, i to lazy to remember or read the rest
I don't know, The Bible Is pretty specific in places.
Have you ever read John Chapter 3 verses 16-18?
On a side note, do you like the animated " Grinch" cartoon?
Do you care for looney Toons?
( That wasn't too long was it? )
nope it was just right i like the grinch and the looneytoons but in more of a daffy duck fan than bugs bunny
Oh My goodness! I LOVE Daffy Duck! Most people love Bugs, but I think Daffy is funnier. His personality changed over the years in the cartoons from just plain nuts to kind of an angry/cynical act, but I like the Crazy Daffy the best.
(I know a lot about old comedy/cartoons)
ME TOO !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i never understood why peaple prefer bugs i mean hes too mean! he was no mercy what so ever and i dont find him funny. daffy on the other hand hes just more original i use to love this really old program he use to be in called duck dogers.
I like diary of a wimpy kid!! and I am from the USA!
The bible can be really easy to understand, or really hard to understand, because it is not like it is one book but 73 different books, most by different authors with different styles and conveying different messages.
My two favorite in the bible is Luke's gospel and Acts, both are really very straightforward.
hey guys! have you ever read a seies called rangers apprentice? its AWESOME! im already in the 5th book out of 8! there should be a movie for that book! it IS a new york times best seller!!!
Yeah, Iantimothy, I like Acts and Luke too. I also really like the book of John.

Harry potter series whooooo I might be going to the Harry potter studios in June!!!!!!!!

This just barely scratches the surface of the amazing books I've read. Hope you'll check some out!
I read Shakespeare, it's really interesting in the play antony and cleopatra, I am at the part when antony marries the lovely Octavia, I recently started a winter's tale, and I just finished romeo and Juliet, hamlet and the tempest
... BORINGim just kidding
Shakespeare is cool! I haven't read all of it yet, but I like "Hamlet". I also like "Julius Ceaser" I've read more of Shakespeares poems than stories. I like " The quality of mercy" from the Mechant of Venice. ( I also like that story too, I read a shortened version of it in grade school.)
Thanks loveshaun19, for anyone who has to do a report there are versions that translat Shakespeare plays and anyone can understand
banjoboy hav u read all the diary of a wimpy kid books
i was kidding! i read almost all the shakespear stories. it not to bad. i even made a playon that summer dream one
Oh, do you read the ones that are easy to understand (like no fear Shakespeare) or plain old Shakespeare?
I am a total book nut: also, I tend to reread books that I really like multiple times over. My favorites include:
The "Redwall" series by Brian Jacques
The "Calvin and Hobbes" collections by Bill Watterson
Any book by James Herriot
The "Sherlock Holmes" mysteries, both the ones by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and the lesser known ones by his son Adrian Doyle
Any book by Agatha Christie
The original "Sacred Diary" trilogy ("The Sacred Diary of Adrian Plass", "The Horizontal Epistles of Andromeda Veal", "The Theatrical Tapes of Leonard Thynn") by Adrian Plass
"Watership Down" by Richard Adams
"The King With Six Friends" by Jay Williams
Most anything by Dorothy L. Sayers
"The Chronicles of Narnia" By C. S. Lewis
"Snickers From the Front Pew" by Todd and Jedd Hafer
my god! why haven't i ever heard about all the books you luvvy brittish love. of books that are not brittist! i read a book on shakespears stories on 7th grade. it was many of his stories like romeo and juliet, hamlet that summer dream one etc
I'm British (Welsh specifically), and when I was younger I utterly loved Roald Dahl's books. I must have read all of them. They were just brilliant and so utterly inspiring to me. The imagery in them really helped fuel my imagination. My favourite is probably The BFG.
I like "James and the Giant peach" the best out of the ones I've read. I love all his poems.
Oh, his poems are brilliant, aren't they?
Sorry I'm late answering your question, Mr. Technotrousers. Yes, I have, and I've seen both of the movies. I also read the behind-the-scenes movie diary.
i saw the films and hav read all the books too
but i haven't read the behind the scenes movie diary book
what did u think of the latest one: cabin fever? did u like it? i did
I love reading,im more or less read daily,(it help me to sleep)
I have to say i dont have a Favorite book, but i do love Harry potter,The hitchhikers guide to the galaxy and dirk gently,the hunger games and a lot more.
Hey, Mr. Techno Trousers. I definitely think that Cabin Fever was a lot better than The Ugly Truth. It doesn't beat the first four, however.
it's rude to question people
??? what do u mean?
i dont think whey are questioning anybody, just dicusting wallace05man ps: r u ok? i mean, you seem a little sensetive lately :/ i dont want to offend, just curiouse. its ok if u dont wanna talk about it
no, i was joking. my favourite books are Diary Of A Wimpy Kid, Harry Potter, Sherlock Holmes, and The London Eye Mystery
I also love the Diamond Brothers mystery series by Anthony Horowitz.
Well, I do have to say, from about kindergarden to 4th grade I mannaged to finish 4 or 5 complete series of books. Then in 5th grade I like read none. See, the problem is, I HAVE to read something enertaining. If it's not enertaing, I ussualy read a little and let it sit there for a while. I just ran out of enertaining books to read, really. All the books in the school are old like 30-40 years back. (P.S. So are the teachers)
im in/was in a very similar situation as u cheesehead but unfortinally, in your life, your just gonna have to read boring books por example i had to read this book for spanish called the hojarasca and.... I HATE IT SO VERY MUCH! it completely BORING! but i still had to read it my teacher just didnt care about all our conplains. i hate that
i like wimpy kid now. i just starded reading it and its really FUN! i also like this collection of books called rangers apprentice that is ALSO a new york times best seller im on book 6 now from 8.
hey does anyone like the book coraline??? its so cool!
