I honestly can't remember the last book I read. However, I do remember what I asked for last time: Thief. Let's continue doing that.

#3 Posted by DjCmeP (1224 posts) -

I don't remember (I don't read books)...It was probably some stupid finnish book I was forced to read at school.

Dino D-Day (Steam Code)

#4 Posted by GetEveryone (4531 posts) -

The Dark Tower III. I've read a lot recently, but slowed down in the last few weeks because work is incredibly busy at the moment. Plan on getting back to it next month, though.

Renegade Ops, please :)

#5 Posted by ImHungry (398 posts) -

Last book I finished reading was The Black Prism by Brent Weeks I believe, fantastic fantasy author.

I think I'll go with Bastion please.

#6 Posted by louiedog (2381 posts) -

Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell. That was a bit ago. I really need to start something new.

In for Half-Life 2: Episode 1. Thanks!

#7 Edited by Sammichman (126 posts) -

Last Book I read was the Second Space Wolf Omnibus. Just like Vinny (I don't think he's read that book but he reads warhammer books). And what game? Orcs Must Die would be perfect :)

#8 Posted by ArbitraryWater (12896 posts) -

Last book I read was The Wise Man's Fear by Patrick Rothfuss.

Two Worlds II please.

#9 Posted by Ketchupp (679 posts) -

Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep. Super Fantastic.

Also, Dead Space 2. :)

#10 Posted by nintendoeats (6144 posts) -

The Art of Game Design: A Book of Lenses

Thief please.

#11 Edited by gosukiller (2339 posts) -

The Law of Nines. By Terry Goodkind. It was pretty great, but I'm mostly looking to get my hands on the follow-up, The Omen Machine. I'll get it next week hopefully.

I'd like to receive Dead Space 2.


#12 Posted by FateOfNever (1863 posts) -

Um.. I forget the name of the book, but it's a book about the origins of every day stuff in our lives. I haven't read through the whole thing, but, I've made it a good halfway through so far. My favorite part so far had to be the origins of a lot of superstitious beliefs; like knocking on wood, or crossing your fingers, that sort of stuff.

Put me down for Humble Indie Bundle number 4.

#13 Posted by plainplease (200 posts) -

The last book I read was Reamde, by Neal Stephenson. It was a huge book, but a thrilling read.

If I win a game, I'd like Dungeons of Dredmor (Desura Code)

#14 Posted by Moncole (666 posts) -

The last book I read was a comic book and the last chapter book was probably a book in the Alex Cross series.

I would like Bation. :)

#15 Posted by coribald (324 posts) -

Last book I read was The Enemy, by Lee Child - best Jack Reacher book I've read so far.

Oh, and Dead Space 2 please!

#16 Posted by oasis789 (122 posts) -

The last book I read was an online novel called Metamorphosis of Prime Intellect. If you like SF, you'll love it. I highly recommend. Read it here

I'd like Costume Quest please. double fine makes awesome games

#17 Posted by thehaven22 (13 posts) -

I haven't really read any books just for enjoyment lately. The last book I read for a class was Environmental Ethics for my Environmental Ethics class.

#20 Posted by endaround (2243 posts) -

The last book I read? Well I'm in the middle of The Little SAS Book. Does that count?

Two Worlds II would be great.

#21 Posted by SaturdayNightSpecials (2536 posts) -

The last book I read was a collection of short stories by PG Wodehouse, one of my all-time favorite authors. You probably haven't heard of him, he's pretty underground.

(you see it's funny because he's dead)

I'd like Two Worlds II

Im thinking Humble bundle 4.

#29 Posted by Danteveli (1314 posts) -

Enders game about 2 weeks ago.

I would lobe Two Worlds 2

#30 Posted by Benny (2007 posts) -

I ploughed through every book in the song of ice and fire series and I must say, I hope Martin can turn it around because it's getting extremely dense.

That being said, seasons 2 and 3 of the show are going to be a blast, some craaaaaaaaaaaaaazy events occur that will make the first series seem very tame.

would love bastion or renegade ops

#31 Posted by TehFlan (1954 posts) -

The Omnivore's Dilemma. It was required reading for my English class. 
I'd like Bastion.

#32 Posted by Ctmskater75 (37 posts) -

The last book I read was The Map of Time by Felix Palma. It was really interesting. H.G Wells is the man.

I would like Renegade Ops or Orcs must die! Thanks for the opportunity :)

#33 Posted by Ravenlight (8057 posts) -

I'm currently reading through a Comp TIA A+ tome. The last book I finished was probably John Hodgeman's More Information Than You Require.

I'd like to get some Renegade Ops on.

I Don't remember the last book I read; I did listen to a bunch of readings of Lovecraft's work recently though, if that counts...

#41 Posted by Natedogg2 (479 posts) -

The last book I finished was Olympos by Dan Simmons. It was good, I could read more books set in that universe.
And I would like Dead Space 2.

#42 Posted by IshimuraD (443 posts) -

The last book I read was Cat-a-logue, a book all about cats. Don't judge me.

I'd love to get Magicka.

#43 Posted by rb_man (494 posts) -
