What book are you all reading right now?
I'm reading some books at the same time, a collection of short  stories called, "Silverfish:New Writing 2, The Stepmother by Simon Tolkien and I'm re-reading Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. However, the short stories has got my most attention!

What is the book about?
It's an assortment of short stories, so, it's got different tales of different situations and such.

sorry to post twice, but it was doubling up..

Who is the autor?
There are many writers, some aren't writers, some are just normal poeple who don't make a living out of writing.

What do you think about the book so far?
Well, one of the stories I've just finished is about a guy, whose whole life revolves around cleaning. he's worked as a cleaner or janitor for most of his young life but, with very strange outcomes.

I'm reading Emma by Jane Austen...Almost done. 
It's about a girl name Emma (set and written in the 1800s..) who at first is arrogant and dumb, and at first I hated her, but her character really changes and now I love her and I'm upset that I only have one chapter left.
The author is, as I said previously, Jane Austen...One of the greatest writers of all-time.
And I'm in love with this book.

well, i wuz reading the adventures of huck finn, but i lost my copy and haven't had the ambition to go out & get another. I recently read the latest Artemis Fowl book, which was really good. artemis is kinda like harry potter on crack...or brain steroids. plus it's got magic and faries. Now i'm reading "Jacob have I loved", which is also pretty cool.

Reading: Sophie's World
Its about: The history of philosophy
By: Jostein Gaarder
What do you think: Me like I'm only a short bit in actualy but I expect I'll enjoy it since I like philosophy

You know what- i don't know if I should take the time to read Mice and Men now though- I've heard 4 detailed speeches on it that have kind of ruined it

Jane Austen is a fabulous writer, make sure you read all her stories, they're great. My personal fav. is Pride and Prejudice though.

At the moment I'm reading 'The Last of the Wine' by Mary Renault. Bit hard to explain... let's say it's an historical romance novel? Amazing book though, she's also a great writer!
