    I have three:

    Joaquin Sorolla by Blanca Pons-Sorolla. If you like John Singer Sargent's work you might enjoy this one.

    Treasure Hunt: Inside the Mind of the New Consumer by Michael J. Silverstein. What it says.

    An Illustrated Life: Drawing Inspiration from the Private Sketchbooks of Artist, Illustrators, and Designers by Danny Gregory. Basically a collection of sketchbooks from said artists and designers.

    The Hobbit.
    It's not as great as everyone says it is. The beginning was cool, but the adventuring part is f***ing dull.

    Auto gave me The Hunger Games to read, and I decided to read it, as I like my head where it is.

    Unfortunately, it's far more addicting than I anticipated. @_@

    I'm a fan of the Ted Dekker books, and the Hitchhiker's Guide books. If you really think about that, that seems very contradicting.....

    Unfinished Tales by J.R.R. Tolkien


    Only got into reading Tolkien's books since December 2008. Read The Hobbit, which I thoroughly enjoyed because it was easy reading. All three Lord of the Rings books took me a long time due to the heavy, archaic writing style Tolkien used, and I had the same problem when I read The Silmarillon. I just got Unfinished Tales to finish reading, and I got The Children of Hurin to read yet.

    I checked out "the Last Son of Krypton" from the library the other day. I'm looking forward to reading it. Then I may read the novelization of Gotham Knight again. I love that book.

    Re-reading Joe Dever's Lone Wolf series for the umpteenth time. That stuff was practically my childhood; shit is so cash.
