YEW ROCK. :D I now have a new list of books to buy/rent/borrow/steal. :3

Have you read any of Vivian Vande Velde's books? They're brilliant and hilarious. I definitely recommend them. ^__^ Oh. And Diana Wynne Jones. Very intelligent and creative lady, there.

Heehee. I didn't think anyone was going to go through that list. It was mostly for myself--I decided to start keeping a record of books I liked so I'd never forget them, and at the moment most of the ones I've got up there are children's books and probably not as great as I thought they were. So...please don't judge me. Hehehehe...

I've seen Dianna Wynne Jones's books at the library, but shied away because they were incredibly thick and usually had pictures of animals on the cover. This was when I was younger, however, and perhaps next time I'm at the library I'll give one a go! This Vivian Vande Velde (that can't be her real name, I'll eat my hat!) I've never even heard of. Time to experiment!

PFT. Artemis Fowl is too sexy for the eyes of children to read. :3 And personally C.S. Lewis's books were a bit over my head just a couple of years ago... They're all great books you've got there. ^_~

Don't know if you heard of Studio Ghibli's film Howl's Moving Castle, but it was originally a book by DWJ. One of my favourites. :3 I'm slowly working on the Chrestomanci books (most likely the one you saw with the cat on it belonged in that series), but I think they're amazing. And prepare to eat your hat, missy! >:D

Artemis Fowl is way too sexy, you're right. Some of them are books I read in elementary school, some in middle school, and a few from high school. Not that many classics, hehe.

Oh, yes, I have seen Howl's Moving Castle and I did know DWJ wrote it. And you're right, the book I saw did have a cat on the cover. I made a staunch point of never reading those gigantic Redwall books because I didn't want to read about mice (even though I've read books that only featured deer, say, or rabbits--I'm weird), so I wasn't really drawn to the cat thing. But now I'm thinking once I have time I ought to give DWJ and VVV both a try.

Man...I really like my hat. Oh well...

! There's quite a few on here that I totally LOVE, I think we might have similar tastes in books, and I'm totally going to steal recs from you! I had no idea Eoin Colfer wrote anything besides the Artemis Fowl series...must look into this :D

Really? That's awesome. Any specific ones? (And I'm flattered you'd steal my recs.)

And as for Eoin Colfer, yeah, last time I checked (a while ago), he had about four other books. The Benny and Omar/Babe books were fun, and the Wish List was good too.

Reading this was such a great help. Anti aging skin products is such a complicated thing and this article explained it well. Many thanks to this new information.

Terrific work! This is the type of information that should be shared around the web. Shame on the search engines for not positioning this post higher!
