What Book Are You Reading? - Part IX

Finished reading Looking for Alaska and An Abundance of Katherine’s from John Green which were brilliant and going to hopefully read more of his works :smile:

Currently reading A Game of Thrones. I am blown away by how epic it is. I never imagined a book could be this engrossing. “Winter is coming.” So ominous.

I’m currently reading “You Can Choose to be Happy” by Tom G Stevens. Yes, it is a self-help book. But a good one! The only one I’ve come across that’s based on large amounts of research conducted by the author himself. I really need to get back into reading fiction more, however. This book choice was solely a restorative measure for my recently damaged ego/self-esteem/confidence/etc (tough breakup in case anyone’s wondering). It’s really been helping too :happy:

Oh, and it’s free as an ebook. Which is awesome!


I’ve begun Hamlet some 3 times and dropped midway (yeah, and it’s so damn short!).

Necronomicon is a huge bounded Lovecraft collection, most of which I already have read and in my bookshelf on different collections (but I can’t resisting buying one more Lovecraft…).

Foundation is in a halt, but then I’ve been reading the Foundation books in a completely random order.

Robot Dreams I brought with me on the trip I’m on, but haven’t read these few days. It’s a collection of short stories, most (but not all) to do with robotics.

And there you know my favourite authors: Asimov and Lovecraft. I’m a completely sucker for them. Stephen King and Tolkien are also dear, but I have to confess I never read (or intended to read) the Dark Tower. In fact, I think King has been growing senile ever since… a little before I started reading him, I suppose.

im currently reading “the bone collector”. so many people have said how good it is ( mainly because its a movie) … im only on chapter 1 but i can safely say its exciting from the start! :happy:

I recently read the Old Man’s War series by John Scalzi. It was very nice and refreshing.
He played around with some interesting concepts in a highly believable way. :happy:

finally on the deathly hallows. Talk about angst! It’s beyond the point of relatability. Other than that, I’m not reading anything and might not for a while.

currently reading Lolita and after that I will finish East of Eden

Peter and The Sword of Mercy. Time to finally finsih the series!

And I’m trying to get my hands on a copy of Jurassic Park. Just lest than thrity pages left. Borrowed it from a friend at camp, and he packed it up before I finished it.

I’m not one to like reading, in fact… I kind of loath it :tongue:

But, nonetheless, I’ve been attempting ‘A Game of Thrones’, heard it was quite the read.

The Books Of Elsewhere-The Shadows

Hello everybody,

I am re-reading the boo of Robert Waggooner, and I am takiung evry night 3mg of melatonin my doctor prescribe. It´s was interesting but I have a extraordinary, one night, lucid dream. I don´t know if there is a relation between both!!!

mona 1954

just finished the first HUNGER GAMES!!! it was amazing!!! what a great place to visit in my dreams!!! just started the second one and am soo excited!!

Exploring the World of Lucid Dreaming :grin: A shame you have to order it, at least wherever I asked, they never had the book at hand. Very informative and helpful, especially for WBTB.

Not reading yet, but will be by tomorrow when the book arrives in the mail.

The Wise Man’s Fear by Patrick Rothfuss. The sequel to The Name of the Wind. I was waiting for the trade paperback release which happened like two weeks ago. I’d almost forgotten about it but was thankfully reminded by a friend. Gonna be awesome.

Indeed The Wise Man’s Fear is Good ^^

I’m rereading The Fifth Elephant by Terry Pratchett and also rereading American Gods by Neil Gaiman at the moment :smile:

I don’t know if I wrote here, but I’m reading Bloodlines by Richelle Mead, it’s a “spin-off” series to her Vampire Academy series, but doesn’t read like a spin-off which makes it so much more awesome. Also, for class I’m currently reading Nietzsche’s “Use and abuse of History” which is alright, if you read it like Shakespeare’s work. And a book called Nightwood by Djuna Barnes which also needs to be half read like Shakespeare, but it better than Nietzsche’s work. :tongue:

I have several books started, but I’m not actively reading any of them. Right now, when I go to bed, I just watch Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends on my iPod, since I wanted to watch it again one day, and decided to watch it in bed. Now I got into a habit of it. :shy: I actually think it’s a pretty great show, though I guess that’s a lecture for a different topic. :grin:

EDIT: Added something.

Agatha Christie’s “Death on the Nile”. I’m not really into mysteries, but I’m actually really enjoying it.
