Book Suggestions

Great idea for a community! Anyway, I’m *always* on the prowl for great books/reading material, cause I tend to go through ‘em quickly. So, here are some of my favorites:
1) The Outlander Series by Diana Gabaldon
2) His Dark Materials trilogy by Philip Pullman
3) The Ender’s Game Series by Orson Scott Card
4) Flannery O’Conner’s short stories (freaking amazing, especially if you love twisted endings, lol)
5) Any Jane Austen novel
6) The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand
In general, I’ll read pretty much anything as long as it’s fiction and it’s got a good story. I love historical fiction (The Outlander Series is AMAZING) and I’m also a fan of well done sci-fi/fantasy. Any suggestions? 

Yay, I love communities like this one!
Oh and I think I'm a little bit LiveJournal OCD......anyways.


I love words, a lot. I love dictionaries and thesaurses (sp?) and natrually dictionary.com is one of my favorite sites.
However I have never been able to find a decent BOOK dictionary (except for the REALLY old one my family has at home), but I'd like one of my own.
Because a book is a wonderful thing to own.

Heehee...any suggestions?

This is the deifinitive place to learn about new stuff you may like. You can check out the info page and hopefully it'll clarify anything you need to know about this olace, but hey, don't be afraid to contact me by either leaving a comment or e-mailing me.

If you want to make an intro post, that'd be nice, but if not, that's okay too. What most important is to get to the point of this community! Let's get to list making! ha ha! Here, I'll start you all out.
