      I hope you are joking but it is a fact you teens of today never read a book unless you have to for school.

      I bet you spend all your time either playing video games, watching TV or listening to music.

    • I read, itz boys that dont read they never pick up a book cuzz they would have to put down the video game controller. lol lmao. :D

    • I do agree with you in these days of the Ipod the Playstation 3 and X-Box kids do not know what a book is unless they are forced to read it for school.
      For fiction try GONE GIRL, by Gillian Flynn or WHERE WE BELONG, by Emily Giffin , and for non-fiction maybe look into UNBROKEN, by Laura Hillenbrand or WILD, by Cheryl Strayed.

      My "to read" queue is empty. Can anyone recommend something good they've read lately? I'm just about to finish up Colum McCann's brilliant, lyrical and poignant book Let The Great World Spin.

       

      Without any good recommendations, I'll be forced to re-read Catcher in the Rye for the 5th time.

      Please give me something to read!

       

      I might be shouting in the wind because I doubt the teens of today ever pick up a novel, unless I suppose it is shaled like a video game controller or and Ipod.

    • Salt Lake City is in the state of Utah right in the middle of the rockies. Yeah the winter games of Salt Lake City in 2002 were good but I'm sure they had some imperfections.

       

      As for you I wouldn't worry about what Romney says. He's a Mormon. And Mormons consider Salt Lake City as sacred as us Catholics consider the Vatican. :) Any ways the London Games were good. The mascot on the other hand...

       

      Oh yeah. For you, I'm voting Obama.

    • If he was talking they did a better job in Atlanta, Romney's wrong.  I was 10 during the Atlanta Games and I remember it's problems. It even had a ridulous mascot by the name of Izzy. If you think Wenny and Mandy are weird, you should see what Izzy looked like.

    • Yes they were a great Games. However i know some people in Vancouver who like to think the ceremonies of their Games were better. :D

       

      This is going to be one tough act for Rio to follow.

    • the opening and ending ceremonies were awesome.
      the music was perfect and the special guests to.
      Russel Brand as Willy Wonka and after him Fat Boy Slim.
      Muse was also the bomb.
      Eric Idle,as always,very funny with Always look on the bright side of life.

      and ofcourse the old rockers The Who.

      anyway it was just marvelous,fantastic.

    • Now that the games are over and the world is heading home and England has demonstrated how to hold a proper Olympic Games what doe that twitt Mitt Romney has to say now?

       

      Many say these were the best games ever in competitions and in how the thing was carried off.
