You have plenty to read through then!

At the moment I am reading lots and lots of short stories, all over the place. Mostly on a post apocalyptic theme.

If there was no such thing as science; you'd be right.

I'm reading Brave New World, by Aldous Huxley, and Miyamoto Musashi, by Yoshikawa Eiji, an extraordinary novel that takes places in medieval Japan. It's a very big book (1500 pages) and I've only read 900, but it's a really interesting story.

Private Games by James Patterson, amazing. The suspense is huge up til the end.

I'm reading The Mallorean, the sequel to The Belgariad.  It's a series of five books that chronicles an epic journey across a beautiful fantasy world in search of a King's son.  I'd definitely recommend it, right after you read The Belgariad.

Recently I've been reading a MLP:FiM fanfiction called The Conversion Bureau. The interesting concept keeps my motivation to continue reading.

The Silmarillion, and Unfinished Tales by J. R. R. Tolkien. I only read the 3rd and 4th age stuff, with familiar characters, I just can't get into the 1st or 2nd age stuff.

I just finished an awesome 5-part series called "WOOL."  It is, by far, the best science fiction I have read in a LOOOONG time.  I highly recommend it to anyone who's a fan of dystopias, deceit, major plot twists, or just plain suspense!

How many times will it be? I was into my third time(book 4) and I stopped to read the Hunger Games trilogy. It was so good I ended up reading it again just a few days after I finished it the first time. I'm about to start again. Gotta read the first to freshen my brain up for the movie. I definitely recommend this series(both, actually) to anyone who hasn't read them yet.

18th for the first 4 books (which I had for ages before book 5 came out). And probably the 6th for the rest.

I do a lot of reading :laugh:.

I just happened to stroll to a downtown bookstore during my lunch break yesterday, and found the newest Artemis Fowl book (Artemis Fowl: The Last Guardian). I was quite surprised as I hadn't realized it was out yet, but apparently it came out last week.

Having read it, I think it was a phenomenal capstone to the series, and am glad Eoin Colfer didn't take the "final book in the series" thing lightly. Rest assured that its ending isn't the kind that implies the adventures have completely come to an end, though, and I would be perfectly happy if Eoin Colfer ever decided to write more Artemis Fowl stories, perhaps not as proper installments in the series but rather as "side-stories" like those in The Artemis Fowl Files.

Spoiler time for those who have read the book:

Been rereading the Foundation series by Isaac Asimov; probably my favourite author ever, with the exception of maybe J.R.R. Tolkien.

DUNE, book 1 at least. Very interesting book.. I'm only 70 pages in though. It's also kind of confusing, what with all the make-believe names for things. But the story starts to get a hold of you.

I finished Game of Thrones a few weeks ago so I will probably be starting a Clash of Kings soon as well.  :classic:

Fifty One Tales by Lord Dunsany.

Something you should read if you have not already.

I had much the same experience when a friend recommended it to me; I had no idea it was out already. I feel I've slightly outgrown the series by now (as I felt when The Atlantis Complex came out), but the writing is still as entertaining as ever, so I still enjoy it, even if I can't help feeling more critical about it.

I expect to finish it tomorrow or friday, at which point I'll start on Richard Dawkins' The Magic Of Reality. Next on my reading list is Adverbs by Daniel Handler. =)

Also, I recently finished The Enchantress by Michael Scott. Pretty much the same opinion as on Artemis Fowl, except I have less nostalgia for the Nicholas Flamel series, and I'd pretty much figured out the main anticlimatic plot revelation by the middle of book five.

Just finished The Lord of The Rings. Better than the films IMO (although I do love the films).

Now going to start (again) on the James Bond books, so Casino Royale :)

Whcih leads me to think a James Bond Lego License would be awesome!
