Right now I'm reading one called 2nd Chance by James Patterson. It's okay so far, I'm only on the fourth chapter.
Aside from reading boring (and sometimes interesting) school books I am about to start on a book called " A Guide to The End of the World".
A Professor in GeoPhysical Hazards at Uni Coll London. A book about what can happen to the world in the future and if global warming really exist and so on. It looked interesting, so I bought it. Hope it's good.

Back to reading John Adams where the postAuthorID, David McCullough, has retired George Washington and Adams is now president with Thomas Jefferson as vice president and he's throwing monkey wrenches in the political machine trying to under-mine Adams. I'm about two-thirds of the way through about page 430. All this happened two hundred years ago.
Having now finished John Adams, I have decided to follow Elfstone's PotW, just like Val, and have started rereading The Hobbit.

I'm using the unabridged version that has the Rankin-Bass movie illustrations. That way I can get all Tolkiens words and can see a lot of the movie's pictures without having to endure its music. Elf With a Big Grin Smilie
I am now reading The Hobbit for the third time and started on Treasure Ilsand and plan to write a book report on it Elf With a Big Grin Smilie
I am reading Jaka Ruus by Terry Brooks. I haven't gotten very far in it yet but I am enjoying it so far.

I am also reading The Aeneid for school.

Treasure Island is a great book Feawen, I have always liked that one!

Jarka Ruus
over the weekend, it was a good book but I think that some of Terry Brook's earlier Shannara works are better.
I have a few books going right now, Gone With The Wind by Margaret Mitchell, Night Watch by Suzanne Brockmann, The Librarian's Passionate Knight by Cindy Gerard and Silent Desires by Julie Kenner. As you can see, I love romance novels!!!
I'm reading this thread.
I'm again reading Dream Country, the third volume of Neil Gaiman's Sandman graphic novel series.
I'm re­ding(for the first time) Guenevere: Queen of the Summer Country by Ros­lind Miles. It look's good :■

I'm reading LadyF's posts of the day, and laughing at the bizarre punctuation, then wondering if it's my PC going nuts again...
Nope, it's not.

Naw, just LadyFea! Big Laugh Smilie
Is it just that one post or are there others that are like that?
Sorry sorry Sad Smilie
I finished East of Eden,pretty good.
Finally bought Night watch, it was only ú3.75 in tesco, woo hoo.
TP's Night Watch arrived this afternoon and I start it at bedtime. The back cover says Sir Sam Vimes gets time-ported some thirty years back to Ankh-Morpork along with the criminal he is pursuing. What fun, if he changes anything he may not exist if and when he gets back. Elf With a Big Grin Smilie
I finished all my books except Silent Desires by Julie Kenner. Gone With The Wind had to be the most boring book I've ever read... ever!
Started rereading The Light Fantastic by Terry Pratchett and have graduated to Book 3 of Harry Stephen Keeler's The Box from Japan as my waiting room book.
I am reading Interview with the Vampire

I am also reading Clash of Kings

I have just finished reading Lord of the Rings. Im reading the appendixes right now. Then im going to read the Silmarillion
I am re-reading for the third time Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. I think it is more fun than C.S. Lewis's The Screwtape Letters.

I know I wrote this two days ago; I must have forgotten to click the Post Button.
I'm almost finished with The Two Towers(Thumbs Up Smilie:thumbupSmile Smilie,and am also reading a book called The Sermons of Thomas Watson ,which is huge so I do not think I'll be finishing it anytime soon.But as they say,no book long enough and no tea cup wide enough.Elf Winking Smilie

REMEMBER: SUMMER TIME AND DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME ends in North America, Europe and starts in Australia on October 26.

I will also be starting Shadows of Sanctuary the Third Volume in the 'Thieves World' Series when I get caught up with the above chapters from the TTT.
I'm re-reading HP, while reading for the first time Dante's "Divine Comedy"! It's just great!

Namarie!
Right now i am rereading Bag of Bones and the Dark Tower cycle, by Stephen King.
My wife just came home with some dragon books by Melanie Rawn. Anyone heard of her? Is her stuff any good?

I just finished In the Flesh by Clive Barker.
Is there anyone else out there that is looking forward to reading R.A. Salvatore's new book The Lone Drow ??

Probably, but I've missed a bunch of them since reading Legacy of the Drow. Which ones after it are next in line?
Tonight I will read Chapter 11 (The PalantÝr) from The Two Towers because Rednell is again leading Planet-Tolkien's chatroom discussion on J.R.R. Tolkien's book The Two Towers in our #Bilbos-study chatroom on

The logs of our previous discussions can be found in our Forum under Advertisements.
I am reading Tough Guys Don't Dance by Norman Mailer. When I stumbled upon this book at a yard sale for 25ó, I went ahead and got it because I was curious about this postAuthorID. I am not sure if I like it or not. It is in first person and there is too much 'thinking' and not enough action.
Just finished The Golden One by Elizabeth Peters; a good story if you like historical murder mysteries and Egyptology.
Right now i'm injecting another dose of fantasy pulp for the masses : another book of Feist.
I just started A Storm of Swords by GRR Martin. Only read a few chapters, but am already getting the feeling that this one will be better than A Clash of Kings was.
I just finished Who's Looking Out For You by Bill O'Reilly. It was a very good book, O'Reilly is a smart man, however you look at him.
I'm reading a few books, one by Nora Roberts called Three Fates and a new one called The Marriage Debt by Daphne Clair, and another Julia Garwoods book I must have read about 30 times by now called Come The Spring
I'm reading Hunting the Ghost Dancer by A.A. Attanasio which seems to take place near the end of the Ice Age and has an ancient race of dying-off people who can communicate with invisible spirit beings who remind me of those we met in C.S. Lewis's Space Trilogy. These spirits come in two flavors Dark (evil) and Bright (good).

The major population are the new peoples who are similar to Native Americans and a few of these are Witches who can also talk to these spirits and use their powers.

This book is almost a barn-burner (page turner).
I will be reading "Monstrous Regiment" by Terry Pratchett if it ever ****ing gets here. In the meantime I'm enjoying a book called the Lord of the Rings, without thinking about how I could start intelligent discussion about it for the first time in years. Oh lucky me!
I'll be starting Storm Season, which is the Fourth Book in the Thieves' World series edited by Robert Lynn Asprin and Lynn Abbey, just as soon as I finish reading 'Of Herbs and Stewed Rabbit' and 'The Window on the West' Chapters 4 and 5 of Book IV in TTT for our discussion in our #Bilbos-study chatroom Saturday at 2130 GMT. Come and join us.
'The Perfume' by Patrick Suskinde.

Little Grenouille hides in a dark corner of his mind ...

Namarie!
Finally got round to starting Chapterhouse Dune, even after I told plastic weeks ago I was starting it that night.
I've been reading Seabiscuit,great book.I don't think I'll be finishing it though. I'm also planning to finish reading "One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest",once I doink it off my brother again. Smile Smilie
I'm currently reading The Hobbit and the War of the Jewels (book 11 of HOME). I'm also slowly ploughing through a book on Applied Statistics for Biologists and a short guide on DIY divorces.
I am read The Problem of Pain by C.S. Lewis.
I am reading HAROUN AND THE SEA OF STORIES by Salman Rushdie and THE SWORD IN THE STONE by TH White. They are both extremely jolly books.
I'm currently reading Skin and Other Stories by Roald Dahl.
A Canticle for Leibowitz by Walter M. Miller, Jr.

It is set in America's desert southwest, 2600 AD, the Abbey of St. Liebowitz struggles to keep knowledge alive, preserving the relics of their founderŚthe blessed blueprint, the scared shopping list, the holy shrine of the Fallout Shelter. This is not a comedy, it is a thoughtful story about post apocalyptic life, though it does have hilarious and tragic and heroic aspects at different times throughout the life of the story.
