Welcome to our discussion on which books we want to read.

Please post which books you would be interested in reading. I will try to keep a list updated in the first post to give you an idea of which books are currently trending and have the most interest.

I will also add books to the "Past Books" list when they have been completed.

I'm currently reading Divergent by Veronica Roth, and I like that book a lot, it's a mild 500 pages book, good to start of with, not too long, and not too hard, it's a well written book in my oppinion, with good characters and a nice story, and I think it will suit many readers, old or young, boy or girl.

Aha! Here is the forum. Yay!

I warn that Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke is (a) a brilliant, thoroughly original novel, of especial interest to the fan of old faery-style stories, and (b) a long, long novel, at around 780 pages filled with gratuitous footnotes and asides. I’m pretty interested to see what other books will be suggested!

Ok, I will have to dig out my old copy since it has been a few years. Are we just discussing the Hitchhiker's Guide or all 5 books in the trilogy?

We're going to read all of it, but if you can't read all of it, no big deal.
