I'm currently reading LotR (again ) and The Canterbury Tales, by Chaucer. What about you guys?
Something Rich and Strange by Patricia McKillip. Next up is The Changling Sea by McKillip.
I WAS reading Hiroshima but I lost the book.
So I am reading the fellowship of the ring again.
well i have to admit i am again reading The Lord Of The Rings, im now on The Fellowship...
the skies of pern by anne mccaffrey....the last book in the series.....so far n e ways
Right now, I'm re-reading The Two Towers, and I'm reading about three different books of analysis of the films of Stanley Kubrick, and since I just finished (about 2 hours ago) Red Dragon by Thomas Harris, and my school's library's copy of The Silence of the Lambs is checked out, I'm looking for a new book to read that I don't have to think too much about. I'm leaning towards something by either Douglas Adams or Rudyard Kipling (short stories) right now...
I'm reading Closing Time just now, well, obviously not right now, but you know what I mean It's the sequel to Catch-22 by Joseph Heller.
And I recently finished The Winter King by Bernard Cornwell. It's a novel of Arthur, incredibly good, I have the second part, Enemy Of God lined up for when I finish Closing Time. Then I have the 5th part of The Mallorean to read. So many books, so little time
FoolOfATook: Did you enjoy Red Dragon? I got about half way through a while ago, but I wasn't enjoying it. I think it's Harris' style. I got bored of Black Sunday as well. But I saw the old Red Dragon film, and it was very good.
The Atlas of Tolkien's Middle Earth by Karen Wynn Fonstad.
I just started it....having just finished the Silmarillion
I actually liked Red Dragon far more than I expected to. I thought it was a cut above (no pun intended) most serial killer/police procedural novels that I've read. I didn't think Harris's style was exceptional, but it wasn't too offensive.
I ultimately decided to read Neil Gaiman's American Gods, a book which I've been procastinating about reading for something like 18 months now. I'm about 50 pages into it, and it's pretty good so far.
I am reading The Two Towers. Sadly I have never read it.
Curretnly I'm reading "Shaddow Warriors" by Tom Clancy.
I am re-reading Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen. It is one of my favorite books. I just finished reading The Least of These My Bretheren. I forget who wrote that, but it was really good. I cried.
Red Branch by Morgan Llywellen. It's very good, based on the Irish legendary warrior Cuchulain.
has any1 read harry potter?
they are basically copies of lotr...but in a shorter and junkier version
**Edited by Tal**Please refrain from cussing, thanks**
Yes, I've read all of the Harry Potter books. They're very funny books. Not junk at all, they're only junk when you compare them to Lord of the Rings.
Which is like comparing Charlie and the Chocolate Factory to Great Expectations.
Anyway, I've just finished Catch-22 which is one of my favourites (very pleased to hear it has a sequel!) And now I'm reading Scarlet and Black by Stendhal.
I couldn't say how good Closing Time is, I'm only a few chapters in. Some people say it's rubbish, while others so it's as good as the original. We shall see.
I'm currently reading TTT and Treasure Island. Treasure Island has a good storyline, but Stevenson's writing stlye's a little bland for my taste. Oh, and I'm reading Life, The Universe, and Everything. It's amazing how much more understandable it is the second time around. *Cackles over her library of books *
Currently, I am reading 'The Book of Lost Tales, Part Two'
(And to believe I once thought the Silmarillion was hard, wow).
Still, I will recommend it to all who haven't read it yet.
Right now im finishing my re read of LOTR im at the palantir.....
then i was gonna read the sil... and then im not sure
