You Just Don't Understand - Men and Women in Conversation

The Doors of His Face, the Lamps of His Mouth and other works by Zelazney

I just finished two Dick Francis books: Comeback and The Edge.

I'm waiting for Amazon to ship me my books that I order back in May. ::snarls::

I'm also going through the whole Discworld series again, as I have not done so for quite some time.

Book Seven of Terry Goodkind's "Sword of Truth" series (fantasy), "Chainfire."

Like Robert Jordan, but much much better. AND he actually has a conclusion to the series.

I never liked Robert Jordan. I read the first book in the series but I wasn't impressed.

+10 awesome points.

I was addicted to McCaffrey's Pern books from 5th grade to 8th. It's good stuff. ^_^


At the moment I'm lost in The Valley of the Horses by Jean M. Auel. I'm also going through Frank Miller's SinCity and Neil Gaiman's Sandman comics as the library's bringing them in for me, and 4 or 5 books on late 19th/early 20th century Russia as research for a comic idea of my own that's been percolating in my brain.

Um... I tend to read more than one book at once. So I'm still on several.

In search of Memory by Eric Kandel,
Misquoting Jesus Author forgotten
Why we run by Bernd Heinrich
The Ancestor's Tale, by Richard Dawkins

Oh and I still have a few pages of "Collapse, How societies chose to succeed or fail" by Jared Diamond


I'm just about done though. After that I thought I'd go buy a copy of "the structure of evolutionary theory" by Stephen J. Gould.

I finally found my long lost copy of The Three Musketeers! So I'm in the middle of reading that again. I apparently rented it from the library in 1999...
Whoops!

It's always on the back of my mind. I can see myself happy and wealthy ten years from now. And then suddenly, a phone call, letter, or knock at the door and I'm left homeless and broke, having to pay a ridiculous library fee. Hey, wasn't there a Seinfeld episode like that?
