Im reading the Silmarillion AGAIN !!!!
l'm readin the Silmarillion too!!! For the first time BTW..... l love the book!!! lt's my bible....!!!!!
And this is my 50th post!!! Hurray!!!!
Congrats to you, Gildor!
When I wrote him pointing out that I found the tie-ins interesting, all I got back was an autographed picture. As it was postmarked in England rather from his US publishers, I felt is was worth placing in my autographed leather bound copy of H2G2.
I am sooo jealous of you Grondy! Two autographs of the great Douglas Adams. I wish I had discovered him before he died. But I actually discovered him *because* he died. Weird.
I gave up reading "Under the volcano" because I thought it terribly boring, didn't even finish the first chapter.
Now I'm reading Donna Tartt's "The Secret History" (at least I think that's what it's called, suddenly I'm not so sure anymore. Shame on me!). I'm not even halfway through yet, but I already know it's a fantastic book, one to go in my top 10 of all time.
Im reading Pratchetts Pyramids now.
Not that it matters,but now I am reading "The Dharma Bums" by Jack Kerouac, "The Complete Works of Robert Frost" and "Lost Tales",all a little bit at a time.Has anyone read any Kerouac?
I am currently reading 'A Girls Night In', which is a collection of short works by female writers from all over the world. It's very funny. Also Im re-reading the fellowship, and Im attempting to read Walt Whitmans 'Leaves of Grass' a collection of all his short works and poems. Oh and on top of that any books i need to read for uni. Oops i forgot, im also reading the 'Silmarillion'.
I'm reading Dead Run, a true story about some prisoners on Death Row.
The Magician's Nephew the first book of the 'Narnia Chronicles' by C.S. Lewis
That's an excellent book, Grondy.
I remember when I was just a todler my dad would read me that book till I fell asleep.
I finished reading Fahrenheit 451by Ray Bradbury and am looking for the book by Jane Hamilton called 'The Book of Ruth'.
The Voyage of the Jerle Shannara: Antrax by Terry Brooks. Awesomely wonderful book! Anyway, off to wolf down more M&Ms! Sayonara!
The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe which I belive is the second book in The Chronicles of Narnia right? By C.S. Lewis, a good friend of tolkiens even though they had many differences!!
Re-reading some of Astrid Lindgren's books. I don't know their titles in English, but they are great.
I'm reading White Oleander
by Janet Fitch. I've never watched the movie so I have no idea what's going to happen.
Yes HobbitHomie05, you are right. While The Lion, Witch, and Wardrobe was published first, The Magician's Nephew tells the story of the creation of Narnia, and thus comes first in the chronology of Narnia, so it is now generally considered the first book of the series and is read as such.
I'm re-reading Sourcery by Terry Pratchett.
So it's a bit of a Silmarillion then Grondy?
Nice, me, I'm re-reading Harry Potter and the order of the Phoenix, having just got it back after my Ma borrowed it for about a year.
Welcome back, by thge way.
*Hugs the Plastic Squirrel* Good to have you back!
I think I might have taken your place in the Council.
Now that I am aware of Terry Pratchett name I see that his books are everywhere, but I never looked at them much before because they look so childish. (yes yes, don't judge a book by it's cover).
I got 'Morgoths Ring' for my birthday (Picked it out myself. "What? No LOTR in English?? Fine, then buy me... That one!") and I am reading a little bit in that now and then, but I should be focusing on my exams. Reading about different kinds of steele, aluminium and concrete. Wohooo!!!
I'm reading Wee Free Men ya ken. New Wha's ma moouss pipes?
Ah've nae sin yer moose pipes Ross ya wee scamp....
Good ain't it?
And I'm sure I couldn't have picked a better replacement for my council place than you Amarie. I think it's a fine choice by my former colleagues.
Thank you Plastic. It means a lot to me.
And of course you feel that way, you love nuts!
Wa', ha'e ya' foound ma' mooose pipes No'-as-big-as-Medium-Sized-Plastic-but-bigger-than-Wee-Plastic-Plastic?
I don't know PLastic they could have chose Celebrian, I'm pretty sure that she influences Amarie and it would be the same vica versa
I am currently reading the front covers of two newly arrived books - The Letters of JRR Tolkien and Bilbo's Last Song - the latter also being beautifully illustrated by Pauline Baynes who according to the blurb was Tolkien's favourite illustrator.
Heh, I fear you may have a good point there Bigger than fairly big Ross but no as big as big Ross Ross. What say ye in your defence my fine Norwegian lassie?
HAH! Like I have to defend myself to YOU guys!
You have to ask the Council why they picked me. But as you haven't noticed since the both of you have been away, Celebrian hasn't been in much (consentrating on her school work the crazy chick) while I am here practically all day. She would have been a very very good choise too, and we are both very capable of thinking and acting on out own. I do listen if people have suggestions concerning the site, but Council business is discussed with the Council only.
I'm sorry but you, Ross and PS are in violation of Rule #4. The airlock awaits....
(what do you mean we can't push them out of an airlock? Where does it say that in the rules?)
Dang! I violated rule #4 as well... and again..
Whats rule 4?
Is it like Rule 6?
Rule 6, there is no rule 6!
Rule 6, no harassing the Abbo's, whilst anyone's watching!
She is talking about the rule #4 you can find here
Hang on a minute the only posting that took place with only one line is my post saying what book I was reading. That had two sentences in it. Which I think is the real subject you are trying to hit upon. Also both Plastic and I are too lasy to use the faces very often as we can't be bothered waiting for them to load up. So ner ner nogg your bag of biscuits Mr Grass!
Take me to the airlock! But don't read your poetry to me first...
But Vogon poetry is the best!
Hang on a minute the only posting that took place with only one line is my post saying what book I was reading. That had two sentences in it. Which I think is the real subject you are trying to hit upon.
Nah, it was the off-topic thing.
Go on read us some vogon poetry and eat this food!
Oh freddled gruntbuggly thy micturations are to me
As plurdled gabbleblotchits on a lurgid bee
Groop I implore thee my foonting turlingdromes
And hooptiously drangle me with crinkly bindlewurdles
Or I will rend thee in the gobberwarts with my blurglecruncheon, see if I don't!
Dang, off topic again. Hang on, no it isn't!
Oh yes it is. You would do everything to raise the post-count eh? Sad. Send in the moderators for some cleaning duties, pls!
Right now i'm reading "land zonder schaduw" by Aster Berkhof.
Almost the same book I was reading the last time I posted in this thread...'cept, it's the third one!!! Terry Brooks rocks! The Voyage of The Jerle Shannara: Morgawr by Terry Brooks.
LUCIAN's A True Story : a classic it anticipates verne, george lucas and tadaah douglas adams...and while am at it me eagerly anticipates the greek harry potter
Finished TP's Sourcery last night; will start Orson Scott Card's Xenocide tonight, I read it long ago out of sequence, but as I have recently read the preceeding two books in the Enders series, I'll try reading this one again.
I started reading Moreta: Dragonlady of Pern, but stopped it halfway through. Now I am onto The Visitation by Frank Peretti.
Gandalfthegrey A.K.A. Eeva is going to let me borrow Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and in like 2005 the movie of it will come out, and guess who's in it....................MIKE VOGEL!!!! Ahhhhhhhhh I love him!! I think I'm going to go make brownies now!!
Cano: I thought Moreta: Dragonlady of Pern was a good one, even though it was a tear jerker.
Well, now I'm gonna have to read it all the way through! It seemed slow to me, maybe because I wasn't far enough into it. It is back on my list.
you know what? i started A Separate Peace as a required summer reading book, thinking that it would be boring and i would get it over with. It actually was a really good book. Slow at first, but it ends up getting to be very good.
Haven't decided yet whether to read TP's Eric again, another Elizabeth Peters 'Amelia Peabody' mystery, or 'Thieves World' Volume VII.
The Return of just what exactly are you reading right now? thread.
I am reading The Icewind Dale Trilogy By: R.A. Salvatore. Drizzt Rocks!
Did you see the game? Its good to. Im still reading the Silmarillion
No, I have to say, I haven't seen the game, but I have played Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance, and in it, you can play as Drizzt, which is totally sweet!
I decided to reread The Restaurant at the End of the Universe.
The Icewind Dale books and games were good. I'm replaying the original Baldur's Gate game, but doubt if I'll finish it: I don't enjoy playing in the city and there are just too many potions and spells. Sometime this summer I will start the Neverwinter Nights game for the first time.

I finished The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and now am reading the sequel The Second Summer of the Sisterhood!! They are great books, well for girls!! The third one is coming out Jan. 2005 and it will be called Girls in Pants!! Interesting title.
