The Rory's book club is back!

Thanks for starting the thread again, I love reading and I love GG, so of course, I used to love to talk about all the books mentionned on the show!

To help continuing the list, I found this site Chilton Library- Rory's Book List the list is far to be complete, but that's at least something, since the list on the WB site is not available anymore I printed it, so I still take it from time to time, when I go to the library!

BTW, did someone read Moby Dick? What did you guys think about it?
I'm thinking of reading it, but there are so much books I want to read, I don't know where to start...

You're welcome. I wanted to do this for a while, but never got around to it. I love reading as well, and talking about the books! Where did you use to talk about the books mentioned on the show? On the WB Rory's book club message board?

Thanks so much for the site! I added it. We will make a perfect list ourselves, so we don't need a complete one! Yeah it's so sad about the WB closing down their site as well. Was that necessary?!

Haven't read it yet, but if you read about the book challenge...

Yeah same here, with all the school work as well... But there's always a way! For example less sleep, more coffee!

ETA: oops didn't see your post!

I read the first post, I love it! Please add me to both of the lists! especially the first one, it's so true! Rory kind of helped me with that, I love reading, but I'm 16 and it's not really seen as the best thing to make you popular at school if you see what I mean I was so afraid of what the other people would say if they saw me reading, and now, partly thanks to Rory, I passed beyond that, and I really don't care about that anymore, which is a big thing to me...

There was a thread here on the board, but I don't think anyone started it again since the major crash in April (was that in April? can't remember! )

Having a challenge each month does seem interesting!! I'll definitely participate, next week, I'll borrow Moby Dick at the library! Though, since it's the beginning, I suggest this challenge would be for december instead of nowember... so that we have time to find other people who'd like to participate, and also, iMoby Dick's a long one! I read fast, but still! What do you say?

Thanks for the tip! I already use that to watch TV shows, but we can make it work!

I remember asking about this kind of thread here a little while ago, but they couldn't find the old one. Thanks for starting it up again. I'm going to see if I can read all of her books. Even if it's not the certain book for a month I'm going to still see if I can do her list, form what I have saw of it I already have read a nice few of them already.

I've read some of MOby Dick for school last year - its kind of hard to understand sometimes but im sure you all would get some enjoyment out of it.
As for Mark Twain - Well i've read The Adventure of Huckleberry Finn and it was okay...

Great thread. And great idea. Unfortunately I don't have time now to read and my friend read Moby Dick and wasn't thrilled of it - but I always wanted to read Anna Karenina - maybe I can squeeze that one in when you're reading it.

Ooh! Add me to the list of book lovers? I guess I'll try to read one of her books a month too... So add me to that list as will, if you don't mind.

Great idea! I love reading,too! BTW,now I don't have so much now,however I've just finished Ten little ******* by Agatha Christie and I think it's just fantastic! I suggest it to every detective-stories lover!
I tried to read Moby Dick last year,but I'm still stuck at 2/3 of it! It's great,but a bit "heavy" if you don't know so much about ships and whales!

I can't wait to read Anna Karenina, it's actually in my line up for up and coming reads.

So I was just reading again the list from the WB I printed, and here are the ones I read and would recommend, just thought I should share:
Jane Eyre (Charlotte Brontë) (ok, you didn't need me for that one... )
The Great Gatsby (FS Fitzgerald)
Catcher in the Rye (JD Salinger)
1984 (George Orwell)
Sun rises also (Ernest Hemingway)

Quote:
or maybe even a fanvideo with all the scenes in it where you see Rory read
uhm, interesting... I'll see if I can do something about it, me and my crazy ideas for videos! I have like the perfect song... except that the lyrics are in french.. so it won't be great to use.. if anyone has suggestions, I'd love to give it a try! (I guess it'll be instrumental...)

1984 is great! I read it last year,but I prefer Animal farm!
I would suggest Dubliners by Joyce,too! I've read it 3 times and it's always wonderful,specially the last story!

I think the vid would be fantastic!BTW,I've no ideas for a song!
