    manga:
    Love Hina Vol. 1 by Ken Akamatsu and Video Girl Ai Vol. 1 by Masakazu Katsura: I didn't like either of these and I won't be reading this sub-genre of manga anymore.

    Fruits Basket Vol. 16 by Natsuki Takaya: I got bored with the first half, but I liked the second part and I'm looking forward to finishing the series soon.

    Cross Vol. 1 by Sumiko Amakawa: This wasn't what I expected and I liked it a lot better than I thought I would.

    books:
    Eccentric Circles by Rebecca Lickiss: I've grown tired of the dark urban fantasy with vampires and werewolves, so I was looking forward to reading this because it's light and there's no creatures of the night in sight, but it was badly written and annoying.

    Jenna Starborn by Sharon Shinn: One of my least favorite books by Shinn because it was a re-telling of Jane Eyre but it really didn't have anything new to say.

    Books and other information sources I read in September

    September was a hard book month I read
    Lincolns Avengers- very dry but let me tell you if you want some insight as to Lincolns assassination and how it is still affecting us READ this book.
    Also read a new author who does the Anita Blake vampire killer series
    Obsidian Butterfly ok but I need to read the others first. This book kind of reminded me of Authors who write extremely good books and then the public wants more more more so they quickly pen out something to satisfy the masses
    I am sure the first books in the series were probably better.

    Also read: Crystal Balls and Crystal Bowls by Ted Andrews.
    Lots of information and I always like to read anything I can get on a different persons view and gathered info on this subject.
    Also read monthly magazines
    Bead & Button
    Freedom
    Mad Comic book sept. Issue
    Guns and Ammo
    Art News
    And I just started Lisey's Story by Stephen King.
    I am having a hard time getting into it but it is getting better.

    i read God is not Great by Hitchens which was pretty mediocre. i think he's mechanically a skilled writer and it was interesting to get more of a historical perspective than The God Delusion offered, but he is so clearly not a scientist that the bits on science were pretty flimsy, and overall it just didn't thrill me. i liked his essays on the Vanity Fair website better. it's good to know what all the fuss is about though.

    i also re-read the Bloom County "Classics of Modern Literature" collection and part of a Thich Nhat Hanh book.

    and too much school stuff to mention.

    Jane Eyre, all the way through for the first time (!) and I loved it.
    The Prodigal Summer, Barbara Kinsolver, it was okay
    The Poisonwood Bible, Kingsolver again, I really think that this is one of the best books I've read in a long time.! I saw the thread on this a while ago and put it on my list, and I'm sad I didn't read it before.
    Listened to Nickel and Dimed by Barbara Ehrenreich, it was good for the long car rides to meetings lately.
    I just started last month at my local library, so my to read list is expanding each day!

    Wow! You guys are great readers. I was only able to read "The Dark is Rising" by Susan Cooper. I know, I know - this is a junior fiction book. But it has been on my mind for a long time to read it. Then seeing that they made a movie out of it just spurned me on. It was very good. There's just something about a good vs evil story that keeps you turing pages till the book is done and you wish there was more.

    i love young adult (junior fiction) books! a lot of them are just great stories with children or young adults as the main characters, so that's why they are organized that way. the dark is rising was an awesome series! i think i'm going to read it again.
