    I'm re-reading Steven Erikson's Memories of Ice at the moment...slowly. I read the Malazan Book of the Fallen a couple of years ago for the first time, just after the last book came out, and I'm now coming to realize fully half of it went straight over my head. Knowing who the characters are and what is going to happen in future novels is making this quite an interesting re-read; I'm picking up a great deal more and appreciating Erikson as a writer all the more for it.

    Reading for pleasure? I never have time for that anymore!

    Currently I'm doing a research paper on disappearing cultures and myths of the Yami and Yanomamo peoples, so as of this morning I was reading an ethnography on the Yanomamo by Chagnon. It's pretty interesting, actually.

    I do have a few books I'd like to read over Christmas holiday!

      Madame Bovary. Why? Blame Pokémon.

      Anyway, I'm loving it so far. I've had it on my kindle for ages but never started until now.

      Black Beauty. It's such a great read of tenderness and the romance of a horse's life. I love classic books!

      The Odyssey. Except this time I'm actually sitting down and reading it. It's quite interesting, more so than when I read the excerpts a couple years ago.

        I'm re-reading Orwell's 1984. I find that I'm enjoying it a lot more than I did when I had to read it for English.

          Since I hate my engrish teacher I have decided to read Dracula again and Sherlock Holmes since I love that book and Robert Downey Jr. plays him so well.

          I am currently reading Artemis Fowl 1, just finished Chapter 6: Siege.

          (I'm re-reading the earlier books, before I start reading the newer ones)

          I'm re-reading "The Name of the Wind", by Patrick Rothfuss. I tend to read books I have already read more than I read new ones, this series, has had me addicted for years. It changes the way I think.

          Still on my way through DragonLance books!

          Currently reading The Day of the Tempest by Jean Rabe. At this point in the series, I'm wondering who's idea it was to write about every single thing in the DragonLance series. While the story is good, I'm really beginning to see the complaints that other people have about the series.

          Twenty-three more DragonLance books to read through, and I'll be done with my collection.

          Armadale. I have no idea why, I just am. Never thought I'd like the Victorian equivalent of a Soap Opera.

          I'm currently reading Wizard's First Rule by Terry Goodkind. I have waited years for my mom to get a new copy of it. So far it's really good. :3

            I'm currently reading The Northern Lights by Phillip Pullman, it's the first book of the His Dark Materials trilogy. I'm about 20 pages til it's finished. It's very descriptive, the fight scenes are so interesting and you get a really nice scenario in your head. I love the imagery:D 8/10 so far

              I finished The Fault in Our Stars by John Green at 2 AM this morning. Spent nearly the last quarter of the book in tears because it was so beautiful. Now I'm about 5 pages into The Selection by Kiera Cass.

              I'm juggling two books at the moment. The first is Allegiant, the third book of the Divergent series. I really liked the first book, but I feel as with this book (and the second) she just doesn't have as clear of an idea of where she wants the story to go, or what the circumstances the characters find themselves in are. So that one may be on hold for a little while.

              The other book I'm reading is The Tiger's Wife. I thought it was a weird sounding title for a book, but my aunt got it for me and it's really really interesting! I love how the author delves into everyone's history, so before the character really acts, you know their backstory. And it's interesting how the main character is kind of the least talked about. The author also has a way of making you desperate to learn more about the Tiger's wife, and the deathless man, and it fun to see how things intertwine!

              I'm not currently reading anything, but I do intend to read the Fighting Fantasy series if I can get my hands on one of them; they're quite hard to find considering how old they are.

              Currently Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell. After I finish, I'll probably ready Blink, also by Gladwell, then probably something fiction!

              With a little luck and some hunting skills I was able to find myself a book of the Fighting Fantasy series, yayaya! The book I'm currently reading is City of Thieves. I find it to be partiuclarly enjoyable because it's not your everyday book. YOU are the hero, YOU make the decisions on what happens next in the story. You can collect magical items, weapons and apparel, fight mobs of monsters and find treasures beyond your wildest dreams! It's great fun! ;D

                I'm currently reading Daughter of the Drow by Elaine Cunningham (i believe that's how her last name is spelt.) Anyways it's a pretty good book and immediately was hooked from page 1. I intend to find her other books Elfshadow and a couple of others that i can't remember the names for. =D

                  I am not much a reader. I am easily distracted when I focus on something. But I picked up an old book my father had in his office called Lord of the Flies. It's supposed to be really good. I've read around 30 pages now and it's going well.
