    hi all,

    Just reaching the end of my 3rd book of the new year, to date i have read

    1) Girl with a one track mind - was very good and saucy!
    2) My best friends girl - excellent although crying on train from Welling to Cannon St was unfortunate!!
    3) I'm just finishing 'The Devil Wears Prada)

    So i have been recommended The Notebook, has anyone read this or can recommend any other that i should go for next?

    Oooh The Notebook! One of my very very best favourites!:) Loved it. The film was good too, but preferred the book.

    Anything by Nicholas Sparks/Sparkes (sp) is good, but this one was the best IMO.

    I keep mentioning Running with Scissors. I've just finished it and so sad I've come to an end :( I found it a really good read.

    I have only seen the movie but i love it :). It is one of my favourites and i also end up in tears whenever i watch it. I love the scene on the lake where they ask each other about writing to each other and that kiss, wow, thats romance, lol.

    I was thinking about reading the book but i know i will just picture the movie in my head, lol. I really want to read 'The Devil Wears Prada' and 'Memoires of a Geisha' but i saw the movies first. I never never knew they were novels :( until after i saw them on DVD.

    Nevermind.

    I have read 3 books so far this year:
    - Noughts and Crosses (Malorie Blackman)
    - The Curious incident of the Dog in the Night-time (Mark Haddon)
    - The Time Traveller's Wife (Audrey Niffenegger)

    and i would reccommend them all. They are absolutley fantastic!! I couldn't put them down and finished the first 2 books in 2 days and the other in a week.

    I'm glad you enjoyed the movie Raudi :)
