I'm reading The Food of the Gods by H.G. Wells, as well as The Fellowship of the Ring, and also The Elder Gods by David and Leigh Eddings.

In the past couple of weeks (about 3) I have read Gilgamesh (very good and amazing poetry as well), Theogany and Works and Days by Hesiod (very good as well, but Theogany was a little hard to follow due to the geneology mess), and just finished The Odyssey today. Loved the Odyssey, very well written story. :D Not sure what I'm reading next, but I do know it will be another classic! (Honors classes are so much fun, the books are amazing!)

^ I read all my classics over the summer; I just don't have time during the school year. Or the patience.

^^lol, well, my classics are for one of my classes. Currently I'm writing a paper on the greek gods, based of Theogany and The Odyssey. It should turn out really cool

That should be very interesting. :D If you ever feel like typing it up, you should PM it to me. /off topic

I'm going to restart reading LotR soon. I could never get past chapter 5 of the one that comes after There and Back Again.

I'm slowly working my way through my English Lit. books for school. In my free time, I'm reading all the graphic novels I can, especially the Wolverine series :D

I just finished Red-Headed Stepchild, which is Twilight-ish, but the other side of the romantic-spectrum, with tons of vampire killings. ^_^ Half Vamp/Half Mage ftw!


And for school, my "new" book is The Merlin Conspiracy, which I've read probably 10 times by now...

I'm reading City of the Beast, a novel by Isabel Allende. So far, it's good, but it's hard for me to get into it. RL stuff aren't that entertaining. :P

Halted my Harry Potter rereading in the middle of book five due to lack of time. Instead reading Gardens of the Moon, first book of the Malazan Book of the Fallen series. So far so good, though overly complex in terms of style. No wonder the person who recommended it to me has such a high English mark... if this is her preferred reading material, then I don't blame her for having a better vocabulary than me.

Also reading The Red Queen for some schoolwork. Halfway through, pretty good so far.

Cat's Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut is my current read. Almost done with it, and it's brilliant thus far.

After this it's going to be Slaughter House-Five by the same author. And I have several others lined up that I have forgotten about, and will probably find and read once I find and/or remember them. :P

I'm reading The Lord of the Rings. Finally gotten around to it, and it's even better than I expected! ^_^ I don't usually read hardcore fantasy, more softcore for me, so this is even better because of that.

I am currently forcing myself through A World Lit Only by Fire by William Manchester.

It is a history (a non-fiction) of the European Middle Ages, of all the Dark times it endured through.
Most informative, devilishly hard to focus upon, yet sophisticatedly well-written.

sl9k: How did you like it? I know I thought it was a decent book until the hype ruined it completely. *flameshield - though it's not as if I need one in the LD*

@Poetic Melody: Be grateful. The first three books were amazing, loved them to pieces. They had some sketchy language, but I took white-out to my copy and made it readable and it was still amazing. The fourth book, however... was simply awful. There is probably an elegant way to portray exactly how much I loathed the fourth book, but I'm not sure it's possible. To put the main issue in the simplest terms possible: While I wouldn't read the first three books to my little sister, they are worthy of being read. The fourth book is something she could read, but she wouldn't want to. They killed Max. Turned her from a tough, powerful character into a wimp who isn't even worthy enough to glare at. Angel gained so many powers she made me sick, and Iggy... oh, Iggy. It was the most pathetic book I had ever read, so much so that I wished he hadn't read it. Just stop at three. No, they never save the world. Think of it as an authorial plothole.

Anyways. I'm trying to read the Nightworld series, but all the copies are checked out!! Sadness. I've had it reccomended to me, like, five times. I really want to read it. Anyone here read it? Is it good?

Has anybody read .hack//The Legend of Twilight? I'm trying to get my hands on the first book, but I have to wait until January. :O Can anybody vouch for it being worth the wait?

And I just got a few research books today for a project. I'm putting TLotR on hold until I'm done with them.
