    There was an old thread, but I didn't want to necro it.

    Right now, I'm reading Robopocalypse. :thumbs2:

    I'm almost through with Michael Crichton's "the Lost World". Love that book. My second time reading it.

    Open Grave: Secrets of the Undead. I especially like the part where the heroes journey to a desolate cosmic realm and explore the interior of a god's gigantic corpse.

    Essential Visual History of World Mythology - soooooooooooooo much incest... :eek: 

    ...and other forms of sexual depravity (like Loki manages to get HIMself pregnant!). The gods are a strange bunch.

    Beneath the Bleeding by Val McDermid, the fifth "Tony Hill/Carol Jordan" novel. Sadly, these novels have been rather hit or miss for me.

    First one was pretty good, not great but good.
    Second one was god awful.
    Third one was technically good, but the story was ridiculous.
    Fourth one was outstanding, one of my favorite books in my collection.

    So far, this one is starting pretty strong, but we'll see how it goes. Track record has it at 50/50 chance either way.

    Right now, got a bunch of comics to finish wading through. After that it's on to the Chronicles of Narnia. One of my girl friends has been trying to get me to read the books (in publication ordershe insists) for awhile now. Even gave me a single volume edition. Heh.

    After that... not sure. Pilgrims Promise, or Lord of the Rings I guess. Want to reread The Hobbit before I get into LOT though.

    Shoot, I have a three-foot stack of books next to my bed that I need to read...

    Right now I'm about 1/5 of the way through The Complete Sherlock Holmes Volume I, which is awesome.

    Reading Never Let Me Go for school, it's the worst I've read in the past year. It's even worse that I'm holding off Fight Club thanks to its priority.

    No Hero, by Jonathan Wood.
    It's pretty cool, it kind of reminds me of The Dresden Files, but with a Lovecraft twist to it.

    Although the next couple of weeks are going to be taken up by studying for my SAT's. >.<

    Roughing It by my homie M.T.

    Taking me forever because I'm a slacker with not that much free time. My pile of stuff to read is out of control, it's going to take years.

    Blood and Iron by Tony Ballantyne.

    It's a very good read, I must say. If you love robots, then you'll definitely love it.

    Dragoncharm by Graham Edwards, Raptor Red By robert baaker I read two books at a time as I am a speed reader and I keep one at home and one at work to read on lunch. I have read both these a dozen time or more but its very hard to fine books that are somthing I like so I tend to read my old favorite over and over. I am getting a little better about reading other thing LOL.
