As the title says. Just come here and tell us what book is currently in your hands. If you want you can say a little bit about the book or why you like or hate it.

Currently I am reading Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. I'm absolutley loving it! A long time ago I started the series and got through the fourth book when my sister who I was borrowing the books from wouldn't let me have the fifth. But recently I've decided to get through the whole series. I started around Thanksgiving and have been flying through the books, some faster than others. Anyways I'm sure that most people here know what these books are about so I wont bother saying it, haha.

Not quite reading as it was an audio book, but I've recently consumed "The Children of Hurin". Apart from that...nothing. I'll have to borrow (yes, I'm ones of these persons that read through their friends' bookshelves rather than restocking their own one when all books in there got boring) some more books for when I'm bored I guess, but I probably won't be too bored until something like the time around Easter, so reading will have to wait.

GREAT BOOK!
I remember reading that when I was at the end of Primary School, loved every minute of it.

I should really read it again! :3

One of my resolutions for the year is to read more.

Is that actually possible? I don't know. I spend far too much time reading text books as it. But, this is more fun.

So, I put together a list of my favourites as well as others I've been meaning to read. Picking one at random and reading it. Repeat.

Right now, I'm reading Jurassic Park

I'm in the progress of reading Deeper by Roderick Gordon and Brian Williams, as well as Carlota by Scott O'Dell (which is for a book report). Deeper is a pretty huge book, but Carlota is pretty small, so I think I've got a good balance here.

At the moment I am reading Green Mile by Stephen King, Curse of the Mistwraith by Janny Wurts, and Shadow's Edge by Brent Weeks. Shadow's Edge is the book I am farthest in and would recommend most highly - it's a gritty fantasy centering around a 'wetboy', a kind of assassin. Pretty great stuff.

Well at the moment I'm ready the good ol' Frankenstein, though I am re-reading House of Leaves which is amazing. It's a horror that will make you crap your pants, but at the same time is a romantic novel that will make the biggest hater of romances (me) enjoy the novel.

Lots of Stephen King here, huh? I've read Pet Semetary, Cell, The Long Walk and I tried reading Cujo but it bored me to tears. I haven't really understood what people find so amazing about him but I guess it's possible I've just been reading the wrong books. <:

Currently rereading The Lives of Christopher Chant by Diana Wynne Jones, The Subtle Knife by Phillip Pullman and the Lord of the Rings series. Again.

I'm currently reading The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown. It's a sequel to Angels and Demons and The Da Vinci Code, as in Robert Langdon's the main character again. It's definitely been a good read, but I wouldn't rate it as highly as Angels and Demons, and probably just below Da Vinci Code, purely because it seems a lot less realistic with all the supernatural stuff in it. Still, it's hard to put down.

I'm reading The Robots of Dawn by Isaac Asimov, which is fantastic. He's one of my favourite authors. I just finished his book The Naked Sun, which was brilliant and thought provoking even though it started out slowly and I didn't think I'd like it that much at first.
I'm also reading Cosmic Connection: An Extraterrestrial Perspective, by Carl Sagan. Though it's pretty outdated, it's still interesting.

Oh, and I'm reading a book on Javascript, but that doesn't really count. :P

Good book.

I'm reading Jane Eyre. I saw the preview of the movie they made of it and thought: "huh, I didn't know that was a horror story..." so I figured I'd read the book and then see all the liberties they took with it for the movie whenever that comes out.

Not a bad story for far, if you like stories about orphaned 10-year old's who live with mean relatives and have to sleep in the cupboard until the day they're sent off to school in a faraway place.

Finished Neal Stephenson's Snow Crash last week, for the umpteenth time. Some of you guys may like it - protagonist is a hacker with swords, the plot is surprisingly complex and steeped in Sumerian history, and Stephenson's comedic timing & phrasing are impeccable.

Now I'm back to Ayn Rand's The Fountainhead, except I left it in Raleigh and I won't be able to retrieve it until next weekend. BLEH

The Dreams in the Witch House and Other Weird Stories by H.P. Lovecraft. I've been wanting to read Lovecraft for ages, but my school library didn't have any of his books and I've only just taken the time to bother finding the nearest local library. It's an omnibus of a lot of his short stories, which wasn't really what I was looking for, but enjoyable nonetheless.

"T2: Infiltrator". I actually read this one a long time ago when I was a lot more into the Terminator series than I am now, but since I can't be staring at a computer screen too soon before going to bed I might as well read this, and figure out what actually happens at the end (and in the series).

I just finished reading The Other Boleyn Girl which was one of the best fiction books i've read in a while (go figure its historical fiction).

Now i'm reading The Divine Comedy by Dante Alighieri. It's really old Italian poetry (it was written in the 1300's) I haven't read a classic in a while, and I haven't tried poetry either, so I decided to go ahead and get two birds with one stone :)

If you're a fan of dystopian novels (1984, A Clockwork Orange, Fahrenheit 451, A Brave New World) you should read this.

It has a classic dystopian outline, with the totalitarian government suppressing individuality, and the psychology and dialogue are fantastic.

Normally I don't reread books, but I'm in the mood for it for whatever reason. I'm thinking of rereading Kitchen by Banana Yoshimoto next. Love that book. The words are just so fluid and natural it's hard not to read it once you've opened it.

I am currently reading The Necromancer, the fourth book in the Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel series. The first book wasn't too great, but I really fell in love with the characters, so I kept reading and absolutely loved the second book. Am breezing through this one at a decent pace and hope to finish it in a week or so.

I've joined a 50 book challenge and want to get as close to that number as I can, but it's a little difficult at times. With having to study so much, it often feels tiring to go back to read, even if it's just for fun, but there are those books that really do a lot to hook me in. I'm seven books into my reading list for the year, so I think I'm going along at a decent pace.

Currently trying to read The Yiddish Policemen's Union by Michael Chabon, but it's not really the sort of book you can pick up and just read a few chapters of. As readable as it is, it only achieves this quality after you've forced yourself to read at least three chapters so you can get into a good rhythm, especially with regards to all of the Jewish vocabulary that I, for one, am unfamiliar with.

"The Story of Philosophy" - by Professor Will Durant. International best seller, been translated to multiple languages, 500+ pages. The author basically compiles the history of European Philosophy starting from Socrates all the way down to the contemporary philosophers. Each of the proposed philosophy has been given a fair representation, while including the criticisms to them as well. The language is sheer awesomeness as well.

Philosophy is wonderful, but sometimes I think it's a waste of time, namely because a major portion of philosophy (a) has no practical benefit and/or (b) based merely on speculation. This is the second Philosophy book I'm studying, the first one was "Sofie's World" by Jostein Gaarder.

I've finished Socrates and Plato, and nearing the end of Aristotle.

As for me:

Italo Calvino's 'If on a Winter's Night a Traveller' is a remarkable postmodern book about reading a book! Everyone who loves weird and wonderful things should read it. I just finished it and wow. Just wow.

I'm about three quarters of the way through it and I can't wait to see the ending (which I currently have a prediction of in my mind - let's hope I'm correct!)


Dang cant remember the ending xD just finish the series, its really good.

Well I finished
Hero's of Olympus: The Lost Hero
The Kane Chronicals: The Red Pyramid
and I already finish all of Percy Jackson.
So Im about to pick up
The Kane Chronicals: The Throne of Fire

So pretty much Rick Riordan.

The Diary of Anne Frank, mainly for school. Though I don't mind, I watched the movie (in color!) and it was pretty touching, so I'd only expect the real diary to be just as good.

I'm still reading Catch-22 but for Mother's Day, I got my mom all her books she wanted but one since it wasn't available. So to make up for it I got her Water for Elephants since Robert Pattinson is starring in the movie and she loves him :| that book is last on her to-read list and I've been meaning to read it for a few months now, so I helped myself to it :'D

I'm more than halfway done and I started last night, it's great. Catch-22 won't even notice I read another book by time I have this finished ;)

That's pretty cool. Nineteen Eighty-Four and Brave New World are two of my favorite novels. I'll have to check out Neuromancer. Is it another dystopian?
Shame to hear you don't like Of Mice and Men. It was the best book I read in High School, next to Ken Kesey's One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest.

OT: I'm reading a Music Theory book. Lame post, I know, but there hasn't been any books i've wanted lately.
I'm thinking of picking up Catch-22 and Slaughterhouse Five. They're always in the recommended sections on books I like, so they must be good.

It's not a book that I am currently reading but rather a book that I wrote called Drylor The First Artifact. It follows a young half-elf named Von whom suffers amnesia and slowly struggles to regain his memory throughout the book. Each time he remembers something from the past he realizes it was all a lie and is sent back to square one.

As he regains his memory he learns that his brother has been corrupted by his own powers and is set on massacring the innocent people of Drylor, the world the book takes place in. Von, the only other person on Drylor with powers like his brother’s knows only he can stop him.

As Von’s memory slowly returns, he discovers that he is the only one who can protect Drylor—a world that abandoned him—from its greatest evil, his own brother. Through his journey to the truth, Von meets an unlikely group of friends who are willing to sacrifice everything to help him stop his brother Scarlet from annihilating the only world they have ever known.

If any of you guys are avid fantasy readers then you might be interested in checking it out. You can find it for sale through Amazon, Barnes and Noble or any other major online book retailers! =D

I finished up An Abundance of Katherines the other day and loved it and I think this is the last one my library network has by him. :P I'm about halfway through and I'm not sure I'm enjoying it as much as the others... which is a little strange since it's the one that got all the awards.

Rebooting the American Dream: 11 Ways to Rebuild Our Country - Thom Hartmann

As of last week, I'm reading A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess. Normally, I'd have completed a book that size by now but I've had some interruptions with relatives and schoolwork so I haven't had a lot of time to relax and read it.

Though, of what I have read, I wouldn't recommend it to people who want an easy read. You have to persevere with this book as it's not completely in English. Most of the sentences are mixed with Nadsat - a fictional language the author conceived, very close to Russian. I believe some editions come with a dictionary at the back (mine did not) but that could become time consuming for some.

I just finished a book called The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle it's an amazing story and very well written, but also vastly confusing (it left me more confused and hazy than after I watched Inception). Still, I couldn't bring myself to put it down, I highly recommend it.

Now I'm reading No One Would Listen and it's about the guy who kept on file all of the charges against Bernie Madoff's company when he was found guilty of committing fraud. I'm taking accounting now and we did an introduction to fraud and I found it really interesting how the SEC can overlook/ignore all the scams he (and other large companies) was pulling.

I'm taking accounting now and we did an introduction to fraud and I found it really interesting how the SEC can overlook/ignore all the scams he (and other large companies) was pulling.I started reading Wind-Up Bird a few years ago in a bookshop, and kept going back to the shop to read a chapter at a time as I was too cheap to buy it. I think I managed to get about 100 pages in before just stopping for some reason. I really liked those 100 pages, though. If you liked it, try Norwegian Wood by the same author. Very good.

Just finished The Hollywood Economist, a non-fiction book about the inner-workings of how film studios finance films and why Hollywood accounting means that massive successes can be labelled as failures to get out of paying stars royalties and stuff. Worth a read.

Now reading A Visit from the Goon Squad. I bought it before it won the Pulitzer, but now it's all popular and stuff and I want to be part of the cultural conversation that has sprung up around the book. It's very well written so far, although I'm only about 50 pages in and there've already been about three different character-POV changes.

I'm about 3/4 of the way through The Crippled God, by Steven Erikson.

...wow. What can I say. The entire series has been building up to a convergence of events, but now that its finally happening, its gone above and beyond everything that I expected and, Erikson being Erikson, he's totally twisted my perception of various characters. I get the feeling there are inevitably going to be some unresolved storylines, but this is one thing I love about this series: it throws you right into the world. Things have been building up to this point hundreds of thousands of years before the first novel is set, and Erikson somehow manages to involve even these events in the current plot, even with a complete explanation of precisely what happened back then. He has an incredible writing style that spits in the face of generic fantasy: there is no main character, not even the gods are immune to being killed off at any time, and the books overlap considerably. I don't think I have ever read such a complex and interesting series of fantasy novels...nothing even comes close to this. I may even re-read them from start to finish once I finish the last book, there is so much foreshadowing, and many of the characters are forged by the events that came in the previous books. Although seeing as how its taken me almost a year to read the books from start to finish, I might take a break first. xD

I'm doing a ridiculous metaphorical juggling act between Stephen King's "The Stand" and "Full Dark, No Stars". Alongside those two is the first Discworld book "The Colour Of Magic". The two Stephen King books are great for a horror nut such as myself, and are nicely balanced by some good old humorous Pratchett.

Needless to say, it's a bit crazy.

I've been reading the draft of a novel that my friend Harriet wrote called Supernature. It's about these 6 people who have developed what are essentially superpowers. Though increasingly unlikely "coincidental" events, they are brought together to bring about the end of the world. What I've found quite interesting is that the focus is not on the mutations and more the interaction between the characters.

Each chapter is told from the perspective of a different character to highlight their personalities and their opinions of each other, it makes for quite an interesting web of development, a few chapters near the end are basically the same events told through the eyes of different characters, and the way they describe everything differently from each other was quite funny.

If she gets it published, I'd recommend it!

I've just started reading a book called A Man Rides Through. It's the second volume of the the Mordant's Need series. It's a fantasy series that was written in the 1980s. I'm enjoying it a lot, although its more adult than I thought it was going to be. I got it and lot of other books when they were clearing out the school library, which made me think it would be more oriented to younger audiences. But it's actually very violent and includes a somewhat detailed mention of... 'Grown up' things. It's probably lucky none of the kids in my school ever did pick it up.

Gone with The Wind by Margaret Mitchell. Scarlett O'Hara is just an amazing character, incredibly well-written and you can't help but understand her perfectly when she makes the vow of never going hungry again, when she makes the transition from Southern belle who lives just to mess around with her beau to hardened woman who will fight for herself and do anything to survive.
I haven't finished the book yet (about halfway through), but so far it is one of my favorite books of all time.

Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy took me a bit to get into it but I did within the third chapter and now i'm breezing through it. There's a lot to remember, but hey, it happens with a story about espionage dealing with different countries and aliases. As for Mao, it's basically the biography of one of China's leaders and I find it extrememly interesting. Chinese history is an area of history I never quite touched or learned a lot about, so it's a change from what I normally read in terms of history. I like it though.

The first book in the series was rather good, and whilst I can predict how these are going to end up (I have this horrible habit of predicting novel plots and usually being right...) I'm still enjoying them; Canavan has an excellent writing style that vaguely reminds me of Sanderson.

I'm reading a few books right now-- One's a biography about Grace Hopper. I don't know who wrote it or anything, cause I don't have it with me. But it's pretty interesting, and definitely different than other computer history books I've read. Not just because it's a biography of a person, not the industry as a whole; but because I don't know much about that era, as of yet.

I'm also *still!* reading Fire in the Valley by Paul Freiberger and Michael Swaine. Another computer history book, yes. It's pretty in-depth, and as a result is also really heavy. xD It's not my favorite book on the subject, I'm just not feeling it. But I'm going to finish it anyways, see if it gets any better.

I liked it well enough but I find it a bit of a chore to read since I'm not really used to high fantasy and medieval-based things usually aren't that interesting to me, but I feel invested enough in the characters now that I feel required to read the rest of the books. :(

I'm trying to read quickly because my roommates are reading the first book and will want our only copy of the second when they're done but I kind of want to pick something else up. I haven't gotten my library card in this city yet but even before that I have "Glow" which I won on GoodReads to read so if they do catch up, I might just take a break from the Song of Fire & Ice series and read some other stuff.

It's a good book, I don't believe Richard A. Knaak is the best author, but the stories he writes are still interesting to read. I mostly picked it up to continue to expand my knowledge on the lore of Warcraft, as I roleplay on the MMO World of Warcraft, but I in no way regret picking it up.

I just picked up The Story of Edgar Sawtelle by David Wroblewski (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Story_of_Edgar_Sawtelle) from the library, which looked like a good read. After looking it up online and seeing a lot of reader reviews, I'm a little turned off that I got this over the other book I was contemplating on getting. Hopefully my opinion will side with the review of Stephen King published on the back.
I couldn't get into it. So I took it back and took out four books. They are:

Shelter Me - Alex McAulay
The Alchemist - Paulo Coelho
Hero - Perry Moore
An Abundance of Katherines - John Green

Most excited to read An Abundance of Katherines and Hero the most. Paper Towns was one of my favorite books. Haven't read Green's first novel yet, and his latest one (I forget the name of it) wasn't very good. I didn't make it past chapter 3 without losing interest.

Edit: Ahhh. I went to check out Shelter Me, The Alchemist and Hero and they said I had Looking for Alaska by John Green on hold as well!! So, adding that.

I'm reading The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman. I picked it up a few weeks ago and read the first 50 pages and then... stopped. I don't know why. Now I'm starting it over again and it's a pretty good read like everyone who I've talked to who's read it says. Pretty sure it's going to be something I'll recommend to people, too.

I'm currently reading the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series by Douglas Adams. I'm on the second book right now and am loving them so far; I would say its one of the funniest things I've ever read.

A Dog's Purpose, by W. Bruce Cameron. My aunt gave this book to me to honor the memory of her dog, who died over the summer.

I'm reading The War Of The Ancients. Even if you aren't a fan of the franchise, it's a great book. Right up there on my top 10 with LOTR and Harry Potter.

I'm currently reading Jurassic Park. You know the one by Michael Chrichton. His writing style is so simple, and concise... I love it. It is so refreshing after reading a bunch of role play posts/books where the author seems to think the determining factor of whether a story is good or not is based entirely in how articulate/long/poetic their descriptions of things are.

I just started reading Norwegian Wood by Murakami. I wanted to get 1Q84 which is his most current book but my bookstore only sold it in hardcover, so i'm waiting until I can get it in paperback. I don't like books that are hardcover :/

This will be my third Murakami book, I've already read The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle and Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World. Wind-Up Bird is now one of my favorite books ever and Hard-Boiled was alright. It was a quick read but not my favorite. We'll see how Norwegian Wood goes :)

Technically, I'm also reading a book about Sikh militancy for my religion and politics class as well. But I don't like to include school reading too much because it's not what i'm reading for fun D:

Seriously I'm reading Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. I know its all late to be reading this book when the movie has already come out ,but I had set a deadline to finish the book and didn't follow through. So I'm stuck reading it. So far I'm a the chapter where Moody helped Harry in that scene after Harry just came out from his bath.

Currently I have 3 books on my reading list(Yes I read books all at the same time, is there a problem?). xD

The first is Fablehaven by Brandon Mull, which was recommended to me by a good friend. The book (in a series, the Fablehaven series) is a bestseller so I say, why not give this a go? I've been an avid fantasy reader since...I started to love books. And my parents have been complaining that I should widen my authors' circle and read books from other writers to learn their different writing style. All the more reason to pick this book up and I'm enjoying it~! :D

The next two are from my favourite mystery author....*drum rolls*..... AGATHA CHRISTIE!!! She is one of the people that inspire me in life, along with Jodi Picoult, and I love all of her novels especially those Miss Marple and Hercules Poirot ones. I'll have them anytime than Sherlock Holmes. xP I'm reading one Hercules Poirot book titled "Murder in the Mews" and the Miss Marple one is "Nemesis". If you like mystery and solving crimes but have yet to find any novel that's interesting and thrilling with suspense, I -strongly- urge you to borrow any book by Agatha Christie. I mean, she's not the Queen of Crime for nothing! XD

Oh man so far it's really good. Though I havn't read a lot of it yet, I'm enjoying it a whole lot! I love the Starks so much.

I borrowed the first book from a friend and it was awesome. Trying to find the money to get the next book but right now I'm heading for the next book in the Inheritance cycle so...

Also, I'm currently reading:

-Eldest by Christopher Paolini
-The Prodigal Mage by Karen Miller(I wanted to get the whole set including the first two books but I was only able to get the books after Innocent and Awakened Mage)
-Shadow's Edge by Brent Weeks

Doing a run in Barnes & Nobles next week to get Inheritance and maybe a few others, I swear I salivate whenever I go into that place.

I'm re-reading the Mortal Instruments series, and currently I'm on City of Bones. Hopefully I'll be getting the new editions and I'll be able read those soon.

Are those books any good? I just finished Clockwork Angel in the Infernal Devices Series which is by the same author. My high school library has the books so I've been wanting to know if they're any good.

1Q84 is so hypnotically compelling at the moment. It's about split-narratives and assassins and supernatural stuff happening with the moon and a George Orwell pastiche and it's all so interesting! Currently I'm one-third of the way through - finished the first 'book' out of three - but I'm glad I'm not rushing the reading of this book as I do so often (helloooooo, Game of Thrones), as there's such beauty in the language and the character development. I sort of don't want it to end, in a weird way, which is certainly a good thing to say about it.

I miss Harry Potter too.. :(

Ever since the final part of the movie released I feel like something epic has ended. But, I have got all the HP books intact in my cupboard and have read each one of them over and over. But I never get bored of them. My favorite part are the fourth and the last (seventh) part.
Oh and I am also reading some mysteries like Sherlock Holmes and Sydney Sheldon. I just finished "Tell Me your Dreams".

I am currently re-reading Marley & Me, until my mom buys me the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy box.
Although I'm not very fond of the emotional kind of books and movies, I really liked Marley & Me, the author showed his love,sorrow and live while not making the book be like that over-sentimental load of paper

Artemis Fowl: The Time Paradox

Forgot how good this series was, though TTP (like TLC) isn't as funny as the original ones.

And not enough Koboi. She's there, but the book needs more Koboi.

At the moment, I am reading Les Misérables by Victor Hugo. I suppose I should be more specific, because Les Misérables is a series of novels. At the moment I am in Book One, Fantine, at the very beginning. Although I will come to love the book, it's already a bit tiring so far with Hugo's almost essay-like descriptions of the characters thus far. But god, I am going to love this book when I push through the first few chapters.
