The book,The Two Towers is pretty good, but it just goes on and on.
And your teacher is correct,Quistis, Tolkien likes to decribe every little detail, whether its significant or not.

Ahh, then I must read it some day.

LOTS of descriptions, eh? At least it might help me improve my description skills if I read all of it. tongue.gif

Right now I'm Reading October Sky by Homer H. Hickam, Jr. It's for school but I could read it on my own. I've seen the movie and it was good. I heard the book was better. I also love the Outsiders. Why did Dally have to die?

I'm actually pretty happy to be reading through The Art of Warfare (translated, of course, heh.) It's actually really interesting to read about these old battle tactics and about the different views of the battlefield.

This is a relevant and interesting topic

I read junk - currently looking through Reason Truth and History by Hillary Putnam. Actually I'm re-reading it to get a better sense on a few items.

I just finished Galileo, The Mahabharata and The Bhagavad Gita in the last week. I actually don't even feel like reading for a little bit (yes, it's really me, and I'm not on crack).

Although I'd like to start one of my Neil Gaiman books soon.

The Bhagavad Gita... I have to read that later this quarter for Making of the Modern World dry.gif was it good?

Well, my current book obsession is Cirque du Freak by Darren Shan. I feel embarrassed being obsessed with those books because they're young adult books. Well anyway, I ripped through 6 books in the past week. I ran to the bookstore then almost went mad when they didn't have the next book. The staff probably thought I was crazy or something.

Well anyway, please read them.

Let's just say that I fell asleep for about 3 minutes half-way through. Or maybe I was tired. Either way, it's not all too bad. Might be a little difficult to understand at first. I suggest reading this one AFTER The Mahabharata to get a better sense of what's going on.

The one thing I hate about learning another language is vocabulary. I love learning about new grammar and different structures, but I hate having to memorize all the vocabulary necessary to get up to speed. I'm just so lazy tongue.gif
