Diane or anybody else who can help me, are the sophie kinsella´s shopaholic seperate books, or do I have to read the first one first? Saw the book in the bookshop and it does look like a nice book.


Yeah you have to read the first one first! I'm sure you'll like the books, they are hilarious! But if you want to try one book first you can also read Can You Keep A Secret? or The Undomestic Goddess, so you can see if you like her way of writing :) as those are seperate ones.

By the way I already read Shopaholic & Baby and it was fantastic, again! :D

I read in a Dutch interview that there will come part 6 in the future, but she is now busy with a new roman.

Thanks Diane for telling me that.
Will have a look for the first book or one of the others at the library than.

Just found on wikepedia that she also writes under the name Madeleine Wickham did you know that?

I've just finished John Katzenbach "Madman's Tale". Wow. Go get it.

I like reading books, it's like being in a whole new world - I love fantasy books, and my number one are "Lord of the Rings" and "Dead Poets Society", although it's not fantasy... Unfortunately I have no time cos I'm learning for an examination.

One book you all have to read at some point is Ellen Degeneres' "And The Funny Thing Is...". It is hilarious!!! I'm reading it for the third time now!

I love horror (have read almost every James Herbert book bar 3 or 4) and on the flipside: chicklit stuff - I've bought Cecilia Ahern's Where Rainbows End but haven't had a chance to read it yet!
Recently I've gotten into travel literature, especially the funny ones; Brian Thacker is well worth checking out.
Also love autobiographies so I'll check out that Ellen one sometime! I remember Kirstie Alley's and Camryn Mannheim's being side-splitting funny!

I love to hole up with a good book when I'm feeling horrible not wanting to speak to anyone  :lol:

Jenn have you read Bill Bryson's 'Down Under' by any chance - I'd love to hear what an Aussie would think about it. If you're into travel literature then I recommend it.

Yeah I have! I had to study Bryson's The Lost Continent for class so I decided to give Down Under a go as well. I think he's a good writer but I think he lacks relationships throughout his accounts of travelling and he seems to talk down a lot about locals. I love how he always mentions how dangerous Australia is all the time  :lol:
What did you think about it?

I loved it. In between there were bits where I thought he went on for too long about certain things, but altogether I found it hilarious. I've loved most of his books that I've read so far.

Oh cool Brian Thacker is another funny travel writer but he doesn't usually write about one place in particular per book. Like in Where's Wallis he goes to these random places which aren't v touristy without a guidebook and my fave so far is Rule No.5:No Sex on the Bus which documents his experiences as a tour guide. hope you'll come across reading them someday - totally worth it
