I've read it three or four times, but not for about a decade. I think I'm going to save it till Christmas. Right now I'm rereading Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoevsky. Now that's depressing!

I've read some other stuff instead of WH: White Fang (Jack London) and Far from the Madding Crowd (Thomas Hardy). I've also read a couple of true crime books the past three weeks: But I Trusted You, Bitter Harvest (both by Ann Rule), Are You There Alone? The Unspeakable Crime of Andrea Yates (Suzanne O'Malley), By Their Father's Hand (Monte Francis) and Cannibal (Lois Jones).

I've downloaded The Yearling, by Marjorie Rawlings, which I haven't read since I was a kid, plus biographies of King Alfred the Great and Mary Queen of Scots. I'm hoping to get a lot of reading done over the holidays.

I am reading Society of S by Susan Hubbard. I don't think I've ever read a book where the writing was this bad. It wouldn't bother me if the story is good though, so I'm hoping it turns out interesting. I think the bad writing may be so bad because the protagonist is a 13 year old so maybe it's supposed to mimic a 13 year old's writing.

Cant' remember my last post on this, so I will name a few that I have read over the past month or so. I read The Historian, which was good except for the end, but i didn't get a lot of reading time, so think I will re-read it again when I can read more in one sitting. I then finished Talking with SErial Killers, which was very hard going. Now I am on holiday, so reading the hardbacks that have been sat there for ages, cos i hate carrying them round!! Read a Tess Gerritsen book this weekend, The Mephisto Club - first of hers I have read, and was impressed, when I ever get through the rest of my books, I will get some more of hers. Just reading Jeffrey Deavers Garden of Beasts, and then a Lee Child book.

I finished Society of S last night. I read almost all of it in one sitting and I ended up enjoying it. Now I am starting Peony in Love by Lisa See. Has anyone read it? I don't have high expectations, in fact I can't wait to finish it so I can buy more ebooks by Kelly Armstrong I decided to finish as much as I can from my to be read pile before I buy more, which is why I'm starting Peony in love

I'm reading Culture Clash by Jean Donaldson. It's a book about dogs and their relationship with humans and how we distort them. I used to read novels but now it's dog and cat books....scary....

I'm currently reading World Without End - Ken Follet (about half way through). I'm waiting on a reserve for Catching Fire and I got a Patricia Cornwell book for Christmas which is third on my list.
