Wheel of Time 4: The Shadow Rising
 
I'm only like one chapter in, but it was a 40 bloody page chapter, goddammit! I really liked those 40 pages though.
Wasn't too keen on WoT3 to be honest. The Tar Valon girls are duuuuuuull.

Is this the thread we use for book reading? It must be. 
 
Anyway, I'm reading Kill the Dead: A Sandman Slim Novel by Richard Kadrey. It's really good.

The Kindle has made me the worst reader ever. I now just jump from book to book. Currently reading: The first Dark Tower book, IT, An Idiot Abroad, Nerd Do Well, The History of Videogames and the Dead Space: Martyr book.

The complete works of H.P. Lovecraft.  I wish more horror was about the psychological aspect rather than just blood splatters everywhere. Le sigh.

"Restaurant at the End of the Universe" and I'm really not caring for it or its predecessor "Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy". After that I have the second Dragon Age novel, the last Republic Commando novel, and some warhammer omnibus to start in on. I want to read the Dragon Age one, but between the 200+ hours of Dragon Age and Dragon Age 2 that I will be putting in over the next few weeks I'm afraid I may burn myself out on Dragon Age and not enjoy it as much as I would other wise. 
 
Think I will start in on the Star Wars novel.

@crusader8463: Hitchhiker's Guide is bloody brilliant. The series doesn't fall off until the fourth book, which was boring as hell.

Most horror is about the psychological aspect, if you're talking about literature.  
 
Movies are a mostly visual medium, so it shouldn't be surprising that the visuals are what supply the horror, otherwise...why not just read a book.
#173 Posted by lasborg (45 posts) -

I'm reading a couple of books at the moment.

Just finished Karl Pilkingtons: Happyslapped by a Jellyfish.
Reading now: Guns, Germs and Steel by Jared Diamond and Why We Get Fat by Gary Taubes
Next in line is The Autobiography of Mark Twain (looking forward to se what the old geezer felt he couldn't say a hundred years ago.)

Yup. I have a friend who shares the exact same opinion. Seems to be fairly divisive.

That's close to 10,000 pages. Why would you even bother...
#186 Posted by Skald (4367 posts) -
@H2Oyea: Because I love the hell out of those books. As a matter of fact, the first time I read them was on an iPod touch, so it was probably closer to a million pages. Damn near gave me carpal tunnel just turning them.
#187 Posted by HandsomeDead (11863 posts) -

I'm on the last 50 pages of Freaky Deaky by Elmore Leonard and then I'm undertaking the mammoth known as Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand. First book I've ever seen people get into a full blown argument over so I thought I'd try it; Thick as a fucking brick, 1000+ pages of single spaced 8pt serif font. This will take me a lifetime.

Elmore Leonard is pretty awesome.

@extremeradical: Definitely. His books are so breezy and fun to read, it's just a shame that his writing style means that the endings can end up coming out of nowhere.

I am reading the first book in the Otherland saga by Tad Williams (Book One: City of Golden Shadow). It is a great book, and if you are a fan of thought-provoking Sci-Fi/Fantasy books set in the future, then you should give this series a try.

The thing is, I bought all the books a long time ago and only read the first one. Now I can read the rest, knowing that the series is actually going to continue.

That is a relief, especially since the fourth one relies heavily on the existence on a fifth.

Secret Societies of the Middle Ages: The Assassins, the Templars, & the Secret Tribunals of Westphalia by Thomas Keightley because after finishing AC:Brotherhood I remembered one of the developers got the game idea from a book. Always meant to get to it.    
 
Also, the first Dark Tower book The Gunslinger by Stephen King

I just finished up the third Mass Effect book. I really like the universe and fleshing it out only gets me more interested. I need to pick up the comic at some point. 
 
Now I'm trying to decide if I want to start The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami or read some Lovecraft short stories. I had a pretty good compilation ebook, but I found this the other day and it's tempting me.
