Been enjoying the first book of this series by Colin Meloy. It takes a bit to pick up but when it does it's a pretty fun read. I'm 100 pages off from finishing it and then I'm going to start reading The Road.

How about you?? What are ya reading?

The Little Match Girl. Does it count as a book if it only has three pages?

Is it fashioned together in a binding?

Imajica by Clive Barker. I am not nearly far enough in the book to have an opinion yet, but it seems like it will be good.

I was about 150 pages into it and then I lost interest. I should pick it up again.

A Dance With Dragons at the moment. It's good, much better than A Feast For Crows

Same here. I'm really not enjoying it that much (probably because everything in that first book got spoiled for me by internet assholes), but I'm already 500 pages in, so I'm going to keep on trudging through.

I'm reading Last Wish, the Witcher book. It's pretty cool. I'm probably going to start Infinite Jest afterwards.

Usually a nonfiction and fiction at the same time so after Drew mentioned it - I think on the first Dwarf Fortress episode - I picked up A World Lit Only By Fire. It's good but I sometimes think the conclusions are a little too generalized but it's dealing with an enormous swath of time in about 250 pages so nuance can't really be expected. I probably should switch back to A Distant Mirror. I recently finished Cloud Atlas (awesome) after it sat on my shelf for three years and am thinking of picking another long ignored book on the shelf. Probably Europe Central or Mason & Dixon.

I also have an urge to sit down and work my way through Infinite Jest again. This is probably a terrible idea.

Kushiel's Dart by Jacqueline Carey. Actually, I have to start it over because I read five chapters in and promptly ignored it for about a month. Need to remember what happened in those first few chapters.

Game of Thrones. Close to finishing it. It's just so long.

Also, a fun little book called 'Socialism in Britain since 1884' for university.

yet to try Infinite Jest but I have read some of the essays in "A Supposedly Fun Thing I'll Never Do Again". Really enjoyable.

I was able to read The Wendigo by Algernon Blackwell during my lunch breaks at driving school a couple weeks ago. It's public domain horror from the turn of the 20th century and available on Kindle for free. It was pretty good. Felt like it could be adapted into a rougelike pretty easily.

I finished Hellhole last week, finding out that it's the first of a trilogy after the not-ending. I'm on Heaven's War, the second in a trilogy. I need to knock out the whole Shannara & Word/Void series as well as the Drizzt books. There's a huge backlog of books to read.

@theANCIENTgray: I read almost everything he wrote and his essays are vastly superior to the fiction. "Consider the Lobster" is amazing. In terms of his fiction I always say that David Foster Wallace is the best writer I would NEVER recommend to anyone else. If you're meant to read it you'll discover him on your own.

I've been picking away at Tolstoy's The Kingdom of God is Within You. It's certainly a unique perspective on Christianity, not one that's often seen in the fire-and-brimstone sentiments of today's culture war.

I'm in the middle of a Wheel of Time, just started The Shadow Rising. Recently I've been questioning my line of thought in regards to book choice and am thinking about branching out and reading some more mainstream novels. Once I get through the thousands of pages I have left in Wheel of Time that is.

I haven't read anything for quite a while now, sadly. I have slowly been listening to Stephen King's It on audiobook, though. It's fucking 46 hours long, though. I just passed the half way mark yesterday, I think.

I'm a few hundred pages into The Dragon Reborn, in an attempt to catch up of The Wheel of Time before the final book comes out.

I'm also reading Team of Rivals, the book the upcoming movie Lincoln is based on.

Warlord Part 1: Winter King by Bernard Cornwell. An interesting take on the King Arthur story that is grounded in history.

Fevre Dream by George RR Martin. Its a vampire story set on the Mississippi River. Im half way through it and I think its been decent so far. has his typical overly detailed descriptions. After I finish it I am going to pick up the Horus Heresy (the first one) again and try to finish it before school starts for me. Then after that the second Song of Ice and Fire book through A Dance with Dragons.

I'm rereading Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone at the moment, just to see if me liking it when I was a kid wasn't because I didn't read anything else before that and didn't know any better.

"The Sagas of the Icelanders." Sometimes the translations leave a bit to be desired, but the sagas themselves are great. Although, sometimes I get the sense that the monks that initially transcribed them from oral tradition "omitted" certain parts that were important to the pagan roots.

Cormac McCarthy's ''All The Pretty Horses''. Really beautiful so far.
