Im a cheater!

I just had to share...I downloaded some more books to my ipod last night..I decided to find some classics, since I've never been much of a reader, but movies always mention them..lol

I got Jane Eyre  sounded like a great story copied from wikipedia :The novel goes through five distinct stages: Jane's childhood at Gateshead, where she is emotionally abused by her aunt and cousins; her education at Lowood School, where she acquires friends and role models but also suffers privations; her time as the governess of Thornfield Manor, where she falls in love with her Byronic employer, Edward Rochester; her time with the Rivers family at Marsh's End (or Moor House) and Morton, where her cold clergyman-cousin St John Rivers proposes to her; and her reunion with and marriage to her beloved Rochester. Partly autobiographical, the novel abounds with social criticism. It is a novel considered ahead of its time. In spite of the dark, brooding elements, it has a strong sense of right and wrong, of morality at its core.

also..Madame Bovary: copied from wikipedia:  The story focuses on a doctor's wife, Emma Bovary, who has adulterous affairs and lives beyond her means in order to escape the banalities and emptiness of provincial life. Though the basic plot is rather simple, even archetypal, the novel's true art lies in its details and hidden patterns.

I can't wait to listen to these books..
I also downloaded some romance novels

Insatiable copied from Barnes & noble With her passion for fine food and, above all, her appetite for love and life, Gael Greene traces her rise from a Velveeta cocoon in the Midwest to powerful critic of New York magazine. Love and food, foreplay and fork play, haute cuisine and social history—all become inextricably linked as the author lifts the lid on her most provocative subject yet—herself. Along the way there are tales of her saucy erotic adventures and intimate portraits of the culinary icons of our time—Julia Child, André Soltner, James Beard, among others—and revealing dissections of New York's legendary "in" spots, including Elaine's, Le Bernardin, Le Cirque, Odeon, and Balthazar.


And another Lady Chatterleys lover from wikipidia The book soon became notorious for its story of the physical relationship between a working-class man and an aristocratic woman, its explicit descriptions of sex, and its use of (at the time) unprintable words.
Sounds like my kind of book!!

And lastly The lost Prophecies :The Black Book of Bran is an ancient book of prophecy written by an Irish sixth century monk perhaps similar to Nostradamus, that foretells disasters or murders

so I have alot of listening to do.. I can't wait to get more.. I'm addicted now!
Also, I will feel more educated as I never really cared about the classics before, they may come in handy while I visit some upscale high society function someday! (Right) lol

The googly thing is from Statcounter.com. You add a code to your blog, and it keeps track of who's coming and going, how many people visit, and what searches brought them to it. It's pretty fun to see it all!
