Do You Like To Write?


Like to write? Love Gilmore Girls? Great! There is a new challenge, called ggirls_las, where you write a fanfic of at least 100 words every two weeks based on a different prompt. Then they get voted on and the person with the least votes is out that week and the person with the most is safe next week. Till you have one author standing who wins! What do you win? A snazzy graphic and a $10 GC to Amazon or Barnes & Noble. You don't even need to be a GREAT writer!

... who will come out on top?

Hey, I'm Shannon, I'm new.

This is an odd question, and MODS feel free to delete if you think this is not appropriate.

I was wondering if anyone had stills from this years season of Rory's notebooks? i just remember seeing a picture a while back and thinking "thats a really cute scheme!" , so with the new semester coming up, i figured i would get organized again.


or if you guys know of another community i should post to instead of here, please let me know.


thank you!!

I'm currently reading The Gangs of New York by Herbert Asbury and I'm gonna try to read The Portable Dorothy Parker again like Rory did in the first season. I'm also reading Howl by Allen Ginsberg.

So yes I am new to this journal and it doesn't seem like anybody really updates it anymore. Just thought I'd say hi and list a couple of the books I am currently reading and there are quite a few...

* Memoirs of a Geisha - I am only like 80 pages in but it is pretty good so far. I want to finish it before I get the movie downloaded though so this is the book I am the most into right now.

* Mirror, Mirror - This is by the author of Wicked (Gregory MaGuire). I have all of his books so far but this is only the third one I started working on. I probably would have finished it a few weeks ago but I can't actually find it. It seems to have disappeared so far it is pretty good though. I have also read Wicked (which was ok, I like the musical better) and Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister (the story of one of Cinderella's stepsisters), which I really love, my favorite so far.

* I also have a few other books I will pick up every once in a while and they are...The Canterbury Tales, I believe I am on either #4 or 5 in the Anne of Green Gables series, there is Mansfield Park, and there are probably more I just can't think of them at 1:30 in the morning.

I have been looking into reading a lot of the books that I haven't read from Rory's Book Club. I have read quite a few of them already but there were quite a few that I want to either re-read or read for the first time.

Somewhere down the page here I read something about somebody asking about favorite authors and books so I thought I'd post those too...

*Authors - Gregory MaGuire is up there, Jane Austen, William Shakespeare, J.K. Rowlings, Jack Weyland and Gerald Lund. (The last two are Latter-Day Saint authors for those of you who have never heard of them.)

*Books - Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister, The Work and the Glory series (Latter-Day Saint series by Gerald Lund), Harry Potter series, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Anne of Green Gables, and my favorite Shakespeare piece is Much Ado About Nothing.

Ok so that is all for today. I'd like to know what others suggest I read...I like just about anything really. I may be in my twenties but I still absolutely love some of the children and Young adult books. I am slowly working my way out of that phase and into all kinds of the older literature.

Merry Christmas from your neglectful maintainer!

Merry Christmas!

What's everyone reading right now?
I'm reading White Oleander. So far very good, and like most books, better than the movie.

I am reading by far the best book I have every read. I'm not even finished and I'm still going to say Leonard Cohen is genious. The book is called Beautiful Losers. It's erotic, hilarious, and disturbing; three of my very favorite adjectives.
If you get the chance to pick it up and read it, I sincerly suggest you do.
For those of you who have had the chance to read it, what do you think?

Beautiful Losers - Leonard Cohen

Will update the books soon, I promise. Sorry for the neglect.

I wanted to point you all to a great site for book lovers, it's bibliophil.org. You can make your own profile and name all books you have read, you can rate and review them, you can find users that have read similar books to you, you can make buddies, lean out books (although I never do that - I just found about about the site though) see the 100 most read books of the site, etc etc. It really is a site I can browse for hours to look at all the books there are left to read yet (not advised if you are in an important testing period for school as I am now).

Anyway, my name there is morninggray, and maybe we could take a look at eachother's profiles and find suggestions on what to read - if there are any more a member of this site.
