    Still reading Pratchett's Going Postal at the moment... great book, and a good entry point for anyone new to Pratchett.

    Been on a big Stephen Lawhead kick lately. I've started Patrick - I'm not very far in, but so far, so good. I love his historical fiction. Byzantium was excellent, so I have high hopes for Patrick.

    I recently finished Book I of his "Celtic Crusades" trilogy: The Iron Lance. (Another excellent book, by the way!) I tried to start Book II: The Black Rood, but for some reason it's not nearly as good. I put it down last week and haven't picked it back up yet. Maybe if I ever finish it, I'll try out the third one... IF I ever finish the second! :D

    Finished Heart of Darkness. Great book. Absolutely great. Now I'm thinking if I have time of starting Adam Smith's Wealth of Nations. Probably won't have time though. After all, I am taking a lit class. Sigh...

    "A Hunger in the Soul" Mike Resnick.

    Are all James Patterson books named after lines from nursery rhymes?

    "The Real Story" by Stephen Donaldson.

    I'm liking it a lot more than I did the first thomas covenant book. It's a lot less....boring ;)

    Just read "Paholaisen huilu" (Devil's Flute) By a guy whose name I didn't bother to rem,ember. Appalling goop, really... far too may POVs, stupid plot devices, and just about everything was stolen from D&D and just twiddled around a bit to avoid lawsuits.

    *sigh*

    I picked up Conqueror's Moon by Julian May expecting it to be as amazingly brilliant as her other things - so far it doesn't look like it. Looks very, very standard with a crappy writing style. Meh. Maybe I'll just reread The Saga of the Exiles again...

    Well I decided to re-read 'a game of thrones' in the 'A song of fire and ice' series and I'm already knee deep into it. This is by far my favourit and now I can for the second time really absorb all words.

    Currently reading the Cleric's Quintet Complete... Specifically(sp?) the third book, Night Masks. Quite a book actually, better than the Drizzt ones anyway...
