You'll find most of the people consumed with literature in the Literature forum near the bottom of the page. Quite appropriately named if I do say so myself. I read, right now I'm reading 1984 and Vimy.

Yeah, I'm reading through A Song of Ice and Fire right now. Almost done the second book.

My sister told me book 7 was going to be coming out in February, so I was planning on reading all of the Harry Potter books again before.
Then I found out that book 7 isn't coming out until July. **** that.
I recently checked out a few Fullmetal Alchemist graphic novels. I'm sure that doesn't count though haha. I was going to check out this grammar book Squeek linked to a while back, but I was unable to find it at my local library. One of these days I might go to the trouble of going to a different library that I know has it.

I saw this thread title and was like:
But I'm reading Revelation Space right now.

I like a lot of different kinds of books but fantasy novels usually hold my attention particuliarly well. I like the Harry Potter series, Lord of the Rings, the Eragon series, and Inkheart/Inspell.
I also like anything by Gary Paulsen or Meg Cabot. The series containing Sloppy Firsts, Second Helpings, and Charmed Thirds is also rather amusing, and I've come upon several classics that I've enjoyed such as 1984 and the Feminine Mystique.
Alright, I'll stop now. I too, am a bibliophile.

People probably read if you're in the Literature forums. But whatever I'm reading click here.

Currently reading Tom Deitz's David Sullivan series, for lack of anything else to call it. It's really good, my dad got me into it.

I'm reading "The Crimson Portrait" by Jody Shields.
Good book if you're into semi-romance/World War I novels, except it's based in a hospital, not in the fray.

Pretty sure "East of Eden" was a required summer read for AP English 11. :]

Don't bump topics just to spam, it's stupid and it means I have to look at your crappy avatar (which I now have adblocked).
Also, I've been reading Imajica by Clive Barker.
Imajica is a fantasy novel by British author Clive Barker. Barker names it as his favorite of all his writings. The work, 825 pages at its first printing in 1991, chronicles the events surrounding the reconciliation of Earth, called the Fifth Dominion, with the other four Dominions, parallel worlds unknown to all but a select few of Earth's inhabitants. Wide in scope, elaborate in its imagery, and meticulous in its detail, the novel covers themes such as God, sex, love, gender and death.
My book has 1100'ish pages, so it must have added parts or else it's just bigger font (but the font is small).

I just finished Slam! by Wlater Dean Myers.
Wierd though. It had some talk about sex and a very graphic kissing scene.

I very much enjoy Isaac Asimov's short stories.
I just finished the first volume, and I need to find the second volume.
Also, I have read all of Verne's books, and I really liked them.

right now im reading the innocent man by john grisham
it's a great suspense book for anyone interested, pretty graphic at times though
04-21-2007, 09:28 PM
I absolutely love reading! I read too much lol. Right now I'm reading Faulkner's and Shakespeare's completed works - I'm almost done with Faulkner but Shakespeare is going to take a little bit longer - I'll probably be done by the end of summer though. ;)
The last book I finished was "Sanctuary" by Faulkner, but the last book I read by an author besides Faulkner or The Bard was "The Good Earth" by Pearl S. Buck like a month ago - a wonderful novel.

I'm reading a book called The Perks of Being a Wallflower. My friend raved about it. But it sadly is a total emo book. I'll finish it just because I hate leaving books unread...but I've been told that Jeffrey Archer books where a good read so I'll try one of his next.

I am currently reading A Zombie Survival Guide (http://www.randomhouse.com/crown/zombiesurvivalguide/) by Max Brooks. Check it out, it's obscurely hilarious!

The only book that ive read and liked was The Da Vinci Code. I like the movie but they left out parts from the book. The Book is way better =]
04-22-2007, 12:24 PM
the only books i read are the ones required for school, and there hasnt been one for months :) yay.
04-22-2007, 03:51 PM
Not usually, I'm too busy either watching Kenan and Kel or writing my own stories.
04-25-2007, 06:24 PM
I'm reading The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafón. I just finished the Kushiel's Legacy fantasy trilogy by Jacqueline Carey, which is a wonderful read as long as you don't mind lots of sex, violence, and heresy.
Yep, I'm a bibliophile.

I read too much for my own good sometimes x]
But yeah right now I'm in the middle of rereading the Lord of the Rings and I also read a lot of poetry and short stories. Particularly Poe, he happens to be one of my favorites.

I'm a hopeless romantic. <3 Nicholas Sparks.
05-9-2007, 08:49 PM

05-9-2007, 08:57 PM
I recently jumped on the Dan Brown bandwagon, and read his big 4. I'm currently reading Empire Falls by Richard Russo (quite well written). My favourite book would have to be Catch-22.
Oh, and I've been reading a lot of philosophy literature (due to school), and surprisingly enjoy it.
05-9-2007, 09:04 PM
Just finished 2 Asimov books.
Pebble In The Sky: Extremely well written, that book was great.
I Robot: Really liked that book, and the movie does not follow it at all, it does not even gets close to the book.
05-9-2007, 10:17 PM
I don't read books unless I'm forced to, but I do read stuff. please don't make me go into details.
I have to read Across five Aprils and Maus in two separate classes. Across Five Aprils sucks, especially with some the immature jackasses that read it, though Maus is good. I also have to read the Hobbit over the summer.
