I just finished Homeland by R. A. Salvatore, Its 'the Legend of Drizzt' book 1. By my standards it was quite good...
Right at the moment I have just finished 'Marrying Buddah' by Wei Hui and now I'm on 'Ireland, a Novel'.

Few weeks ago I read one of these 'Doctor Who' novels and in the first two pages I found a spelling and grammer mistake. Then throughout the book I kept finding scentences that didn't make any sense. For shame BBC publishing.

I finished Guns of the South a few nights ago. Its actually an interesting read, but really only if your into the civil war kind of stuff. Think basically a bunch of white supremacists go back to the civil war and give Lee AK-47 and the likes. Its an altenative reality book, a good read.
Carnal Malefactor
I'm still in my All-Lovecraft-All-The-Time phase. Currently reading through At the Mountains Of Madness.
Just read Johnny the Homicadal Maniac: Director Cut and while it if a bit ansty at times it is very funny and gruesome(ish). The art work is nice and sharpe aswell which is apprently a good thing. I know it's a comic so it doesn't count as propper reading but I recommend you check it out.

F. Scott Fitzgerald. Excellent book, by the way, though I doubt I would've read it if it weren't for a class.

I think McKibbin's the editor... If it's the collected works of Edgar Allen Poe, then it's implied that the works are by Edgar Allen Poe.

I'm currently reading Microserfs, by Douglas Coupland--an amusing look into the world of computer geeks presented in the form of journal entries. As interesting as that sounds (heh), what actually caught my attention the picture on the cover of the little man made of LEGO blocks. =P
I'm reading 'The Zombie Survival Guide' by Max Brooks for the 5th time happy.gif
I´m almost finished with Marianela by Benito Pérez Galdós...what a tragic and depressing book! Well, I usually don´t like much the books I have to read for school anyway! laugh.gif

At the moment I am reading The Highest Tide by Jim Lynch. I'm really enjoying this one, I got it from the library just because it was on the 'recomended read' shelf. Glad I did.
I'm going to read A Storm of Swords by: George R.R. Martin.

I think McKibbons the editor...

Don't worry about it. This thread is about what you are reading at the moment, so it's okay if someone else has mentioned the book you're reading. smile.gif

I'm actually not reading anything at the moment. I just finished Maxine Hong Kingston's The Woman Warrior for my English class, and I'm in between books right now. I'll need to start on Beloved this weekend, though.

You'll either love that one or hate it. I am grouped with the latter. mellow.gif

-Bleach, volumes 13-16
-Ivanhoe-Sir Walter Scott
-Biology of the Cancer Cell, Chapters 11 and 12-Weinberg
-And a Vast assortment of the most dull exciting scientific crap literature i could find on the topics of: Cancer Biology, Green Sea Turtles, Neotropical migrating birds, Microarrays, and metabolism

Yeah...i'm willing to bet i'll be reading most of that Sunday nite....
system and laws of gravitation !
Seeker by William Nicholson. Very cool book smile.gif .
Well, any manga I can get my hands on.
But that's only a 45 minute read, usually.

At the moment I am reading several novels in the 'Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy' series by Douglas Adams, And I really want to read 'A Clockwork Orange.' But I can't find it.
I tried to read 'Les Miserables' in french, but it's time consuming.
So that's a no go, too...

I need to find something else to read, soon.
I'm going to start reading Poirot's Early Cases soon. I'll have to try not to start it until I've finished my presentation and paper.
