Reading the classics, eh, Zio?  biggrin.gif  Why can't there be more guys like you who read all those?  I'm discouraged by the small number of them.  sad.gif

Because not many men are as cool as I am. Few are willing to walk about a mile or two to a small town bookstore and buy two books every week.

Oh and I also finished reading "The Dark Tower I: The Gunslinger" by Stephen King. Plus, I found my "Zombie Survival Guide" written by Max Brooks in the depths of my bookcase!

Two books every week? ohmy.gif Wow. Not even I can do that. But then again, I buy nearly 6 books at a time. I've wanted to read Stephen King's work, too, but haven't found the time. Still don't own any of his books though. sad.gif

Well actually, I didn't go last week and I don't plan to go this week. There are only 3 books left that I want to get at the store. (They don't restock very often.)

Perhaps you can order some of King's books online.

Let's see, The Dead Zone, The Shining, Cujo, The Dark Tower Series, The Green Mile series(they were originally more than one book before the movie came out), and It.

King has made over 200 books and short stories. But the books above are the only ones I remember.

Oh, thank you! biggrin.gif I'll probably be stopping by a bookstore later today. I'll check to see if they have them in stock.

The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown. Now that is a good novel.

. . . and one of these days, I will read Lord of the Rings. I know. I'm ashamed. I haven't read it. I don't even own it. My brother has them but even he hasn't read them. So sad.

Yay! for you Quisty! (if you allow me to call you that;))
I have read them in Dutch, I found the English a bit hard, but I have them all, in both languages, and I read The Hobbit in English, that went well and I really liked it smile.gif

And I finally voted. Me is a reader. *points to bookshelf and the books still to read*

You can call me whatever you like, DarkWater Alchemist. smile.gif I've heard some things about LotR as well, from my Grade 11 English teacher. He said something like:

"It gets really repetitive sometimes. 50 pages or something, describing a bush. And then, another 50 pages on the same bush because they pass it on the way back."

Hee hee. laugh.gif

That's true, Tolkien is good at endless describings of the surrounding, and that was somewhere in The Two Towers so hard to follow, I gave up on the English version... But I guess it did help the people in charge of designing every set for the movies ^^

You can call me whatever you like too, DarkWater Alchemist is a long name sleep.gif

May I call you DW, then? tongue.gif

I haven't even seen the film version of The Two Towers, and apparently, that's the best one out of the three. I've seen the first and third (barely, because it was a big theatre and I sat at the very front row so I saw little to NOTHING). I'm always missing out on things . . .
