Do you like the work of the other Bronte sisters? I'm not a huge fan (barely made my way to the end of Wuthering Heights) but I thought Jane Eyre was alright.

I just finished Ender's Game and now I'm reading Folk of the Fringe, also by Orson Scott Card, for my U.S. Religion class. Ender's Game was for fun though, and man was it fun!

Right now, I'm listening to the audiobook for DON QUIXOTE. Even though it kind of runs on a bit (I'm on disc 9 of a 35 disc audiobook), I'm really getting into it. I can see why it's considered one of the great tomes of literature.

And on my docket of books to read, I have HAUNTED by Chuck Palahniuk, FOR WHOM THE BELL TOLLS by Ernest Hemingway, THE PLOT AGAINST AMERICA by Phillip Roth, IN COLD BLOOD by Truman Capote and the entire DARK TOWER series by Stephen King. And I'm flirting with getting the audiobook for Stephen Colbert's book I AM AMERICA (AND SO CAN YOU!), even though the last thing I need is another book to read. I don't have that much space left on my iPod. Although, I wouldn't mind listening to NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN by Cormac McCarthy (my new fave author) and I AM LEGEND by Dick Matheson, in prep for the movies coming out.

The Fall of the Roman Empire: A New History of Rome and the Barbarians by Peter Heather.

Dr. Heather is an Oxford educated Historian of European Late Antiquity and Early Middle Ages, which makes him an expert on the question of fall of the Western Roman Empire. I’m half way through his book and so far he makes a very convincing case for the Fall of Rome due to external influences.

Also, I have the new Terry Brook's book on order.

May I make a suggestion? If anyone is having trouble finding time to read try DailyLit.com

It is amazing just how many books you can at once if they are all delivered in small doses... I highly recommend this site.

Admittedly, it can be a strain on the eyes since it is on the computer, however you can print it out if you want.

Almost all of the classics are free and most others are $5 but I find it much easier than lugging a book around or listening to an audiobook (I don't concentrate as well).

Check it out!

Currently indulging the most recent Dresden File, White Night. SUCH a Dresden fangirl at this point. I've never had a crush on a character from a book before. It's wierd.

Also reading 100 Malicious Little Mysteries. It's a pretty cool older book by Asimov and a whole buncha other people. One of those two so-so stories to one really good story to one kinda stupid story kinda books.

Lastly I have a book with a Dresden Short story in it to read as soon as I finish White Night (Which should be sometime tomorrow morning, I expect :P).

Song of Ice and Fire (and all of Martin's other books - the ones HE wrote himself, not the Wild Card ones) are abdo-freakin'-lutely AWESOME. Technically, I kinda had a crush on Royd Eris from Nightflyers, but then, Michael Praed played him in the (bad) movie version, so I can't count that as an actual crush on Royd himself lol.



Loved I am Legend, my mom was a big Charleton Heston fan, so I grew up watching Omega Man, I'm eager to see if they get the story more like the book in this incarnation, the book is really cool.

Dune - Frank Herbert.

And I've started my own Sci-Fi novel! I've never written a book, or even a chapter for that matter, but I've got such a story inside, I have to put it on paper.

Basically, its a story about good and evil, and how both sides always believe they're the good. I couldn't think of a better inspiration for the main character than Captain Tightpants. Of course it takes place in space, and I plan on throwing in Firefly salutes.

I'm always open to suggestions, and I may post some chapters once I can get a good flow going.

From what I've heard and read, they've taken quite a few liberties...I was so hoping for a more canonical adaptation seeing as they at least kept the title, but it's not to be.

-gulps- um, well, each to their own -

but for me - wow -
wuthering heights... well, damn, i love it.
it's just this sheer force of will power and elementalism. oh - it might just be my favourite book... if i didn't love 'charlotte sometimes' so much.

and Ann Bronte's Tennant of WildFell Hall is a great read - soooooooo ahead of it's time in the depiction of alcholism and domestic violence, patterned relationships etc etc

and passionate too!

w.heights is not romantic like jayne eyre - i can understand that (and the dialect) being a little alienating.

my fave parts of jayne eyre are the school scenes.

I got Terry Brooks new book, today. Actually, it’s the first book of his new Trilogy: Genesis of Shannara: Armageddon's Children. This one is supposedly about how it all started. Yeah, I know there’s already been a “how it all started” series, but this one goes even further back – I think to when Magic was created, the faeryfolk and the Ellcries, etc. Brooks had long hinted in several of his books that the story actually took place in a far future time following some sort of nuclear cataclysm. I’m guessing this story takes place somewhere between the holocaust and the forbidding.

I just finished that book. It drove me freaking crazy, and (for me) it was a long, hard read. I wanted to just give up on it almost every time I picked it up. In the end it was a decent story, but I didn't hold it in nearly the esteem that 98% of the science fiction fans seem to.

Then again, I always was weird...

This novel bridges the Running with a demon trilogy and the prehistory of Shannara. It's really creepy and somewhat depressing. Humanity is pretty much wiped out, and there are hordes of once-men being led by demons systematically destroying the remains of humanity. Very interesting read, especially if you read the demon books. Some of the same characters and locations, and the elves show up too. Takes place after 2067(?). I think it's 2170 or close to that.

I'm reading three, actually (one for school and two that I randomly started).

Notes From Underground, by Fyodor Dostoevsky
Fascinating story so far. It's definitely a hard read, but the narrator has some interesting (and frankly, quite true) insights on society in general.

The Neverending Story, by Michael Ende
I saw the movie for this when I was a kid, and have been in love ever since. The book is even more amazing.

Storm Front, by Jim Butcher
As some of you well know, I am a Dresden junkie (is there a twelve-step program, I wonder? ). So I see no problem in reading all of the books again. And again.

ETA: And I see I'm not the only Dresden junkie on the thread. Nice to be in good company.
