"Chases and Escapes: The Mathematics of Pursuit and Evasion" By: Paul Nahin. Its a pretty interesting story, and it captures the imagination happy.gif.
Hornet Flight by Ken Forlett
I'm reading alot of Stephen King right now.

is anyone on right now? huh.gif
Jane Austin - Sense and the Sensibility
Namesake - Jumpha Lahri
Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer

It's a great book, but it's not a leisurely read. You have to really concentrate to understand the kid's train of thought.
NightRise - Anothony horowitz

Oku no Hosomichi by Matsuo Bashō (松尾 芭蕉)
Night Shadow Alchemist
i started a book called "The Hidden Assassin" by Robert Wilson, exams got in the way but il pick it up again when my exams are over
-grins- exams are sure important

Fullmetal alchemist - The Land of Sand
I'm reading Hannibal Rising, Black Cat and Antique Bakery right now.
I've been waiting for "A River Runs Though It" to get here... It looks amazing; a mix of religion and fly fishing put together with good flow (no pun intended) and a sense of humor... And I really need to turn off my auto-book review setting. Meanwhile I've been reading bits of Worse Than Watergate, which just spends its words trashing Bush.
At this present moment? George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion. It's a play actually, and it's from an ebook, so I don't know if it counts.

In the recent week, I finished Terry Pratchet's The Colour of Magic and went on to The Light Fantastic. This is the second time I'm reading them, and I still don't really get it. But that's Pratchett for you. The Rincewind series, at least! tongue.gif

Regarding Night Shadow Alchemist's point about exams disrupting a good read, I'm glad I took up English Literature in school. Granted, some of my text was boring as hell, but there were others that were generally okay, even interesting.
The Story of A Life by Aharon Appelfeld

It's such a nice to read memoir...
at the moment i am reading 7 ancient wonders and faust they are awsome books
Pendragon: Pilgrims of Rayne...
I'm addicted to the Pendragon series....
The books are cliche and predictable, yet I still <3 them...

Ironic? I think so.

I'm currently reading The Comedy of Errors by William Shakespeare for the 17th time and The Odyssey by Homer.
By John Gray...
"The men are from Mars, the women are from Venus" n_n
Percy Jackson Series: Book 2: The Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan {I KNOW HIM!}
Rebel Angels again by Libba Bray {HAH! I have the book signed by her with a letter to me!!!! X3}
Il Gatto Sul G by ????
Is He or Isn't He? By ????
Antony and Cleopatra by good ol' Bill Shakespeare

Antony and Cleopatra by good ol' Bill Shakespeare

Wow, weirdos like me who enjoy Shakespeare actually still exist! Many of my friends claim they don't understand Shakespeare. But I find that once you understand the language, Shakespeare makes quite a good read.
Heh. I guess I'm a weirdo too! I love Shakespear! =D
I'm currently reading "the book" by Wolfgang and Hike Hohlbein. I have no idea if it's available in other contries than Germany, because they are German writers, but here Wolfgang Hohlbein (Heike is his wife and sometimes writes a book with her husband) is very well known.
And I want to start reading... oh my. It's also a german title. Der Schwarm... in English it would be "the flock" if it's translated word by word. It's written by Frank Schätzing.

edit: my tipping mistakes are terrible. >___<
I'm reading my way through a few things, including Pagan's Crusade by Catherine Jinks, Night Watch by Sergei Lukyanenko, a random volume of Hellblazer and a couple of manga. I have serious books around, but can't quite summon the interest and attention span required to, you know, actually read them. rolleyes.gif
^^ I like Shakespear, too.

I'm reading White Pacific by Gerald Horne

Being it's summer, I don't read too much, but right now I'm reading The Lord of the Rings - i always read it once a year and have been doing it for quite a while now.
I wish I could read the 7th Harry Potter book, but it don't come out till the 21st of July down here...and I'm not spending that amount of money on an HP book... happy.gif

I'm currently reading Thomistic Philosophy, because we're required to...
Currently reading Ptomleys Gate, but only because its not the 21st yet...pre-ordered and arriving on my doorstep as long as the postmen don't have another strike.

I'm currently rereading the 13th and last installment of A Series of Unfortunate Events - The End by Lemony Snicket. I found The Beatrice Letters in a bookstore and read it there (yes, on the spot) and decided to reread his last ASOUE book.

I want books on my birthday. ^__________^ Romance novels, graphic novels, ah, so long as I can read them. XD
I am the Only sister Elric
I'm reading so many I don't know where to start to count! And I still want more!!!!!!
I'm reading Q. Wars, rebellions, despair, the power plays of the church. Mmm.
None right now. Currently waitng for Harry Potter to be released in a few days.

Books I want to read:
Angry Blonde by Eminem
Wu-Tang Manual by The RZA
The Children of Willesden Lane(Actually a re-read havent read it since 6th grade)

When You Wake and Find Me Gone- Maureen McCarthy

Why is it that every book I take off the library shelf has something to do with the history of Ireland? laugh.gif
Aurora by Carlos Fuentes (Pretty crack-tacular to say the least. Then again it is magical realism)
I've just now finished Storm Front by Jim Butcher. Urban fantasy and detective fiction. Pretty good. Got to say I can't imagine how SciFi read that depiction of Butcher's Harry Dresden character and translated it to the one in the TV series. Paul Blackthorne's Dresden is rather sweet, but Butcher's original is quite a bit harsher and appears, on first impressions at least, to lack the empathy of the TV-verse incarnation.
Three Apples Fell From Heaven- Micheline Marcom
Barry Trotter and the Shameless Parody.

Amusing, but my main gripe (there is no offence intended here) its painfully obvious its written by an American. They insult each other using words we rarely do in Britain, most of it is set in New York (ie the writer knows that setting better) and he doesn't use u's in colour and glamour etc (minor problem, and I'm joking on this front really).

The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan

The Alchemist by Paul Cuelho

Summer Reading, but I'm not complaining. I guess I'm just lucky I didn't end up with two terrible stories to take up my vacation.
Re-reading the harry potter series in preparation for the final book

That's a good idea. ^^

I'm reading Loyal to the Land by Billy Bergin. It's about the plantation history and stuff like that.
Electricity Alchemist
Shogun by James Clavell
Les Miserables by: Victor Hugo
Something I just picked up randomly off the shelf at the library: The Conservative Soul: How we lost it, how to get it back by Andrew Sullivan.

Now, I'm one of those damned heathen lib'ruls out there, and so far, I find the book a great read. Sure, I disagree with the book's characterization of the left, and I disagree with the author's fundamental stance regarding the purpose of government, but still...I recommend it for anyone who wishes to go back to real conservative values, as opposed to the current fundamentalist, intrusive agenda of the Republican party.
I'm reading The Catcher in the Rye for the hell of it. My brother has to read it for school but I got bored so I read the first page and it grabbed my interest.
The Valley of Secrets by Charmian Hussey.

British books <3
The Memory Keepers Daughter by Kim Edwards, bout to start it asits been recomended to me.
I'm reading A Political Education: Coming of Age in Paris and new York, some book my friend was talking about , but I don't find the subject of socialism and the stuff that interesting so far. tongue.gif
I stole my little brother's copy of The Diary of Adrian Mole, Age 13 and 3/4. I know the book is aimed at teenage boys, but I find it scathingly funny. The humour is rather dark, and you find yourself laughing at situations that you really shouldn't be laughing at. All in all, the book manages to be quite witty while tackling some of the growing pains of becoming a young adult.

I'm about to start reading Hard Times by Charles Dickens for the AP European History class I'm taking next year. -__- I have to finish that and Utopia by Thomas More before the school year starts.
I'm reading Artemis Fowl book 3. As soon as the Harry Potter book comes out me and my dad are going to have a fight over who gets to read it first(most likely)
