I recently started reading fifty shades of grey, and love it! I will be reading the other 2. In many ways reading a good book is my escape from the reality of life. What books have you read that you enjoy to "take you away."

    I like reading a lot of different things, but I'll re-read books like A Farewell to Arms, Catch-22 and Goodbye, Columbus over and over again because the settings they take you to are pretty great. Even if they are extremely depressing.

    Currently reading Into Thin Air and I can't put it down. Started it on Sunday night and I should be done by tonight or tomorrow.

    Good call on Catch-22. One of my favs.

    Poor you, stuck reading 50 shades of grey. I LOATHE Twilight, so why would I ever want to read Twilight Fanfiction? The author of 50 shades of grey is disgusting...changing the names to publish it.

    My mother in law gave me a book for Christmas called Homer. It is about a blind cat that is supposed to be heart-warming and inspiring.

    I like my MIL, but I don't like cats, and I don't like where this book takes me.

    Mostly I read the New Yorker magazine, and Genii magazine.

    I basically read everything and anything. I usually rip through a couple handred pages a day, have books everywhere car, bathroom living room , purse... No favorites per say. When i was younger I read all the classics. Yard sales , flea markets and thrift stores are my favorite places to go to buy them... Guess reading this I shoild put the books down and get off my butt huh ?
