    King of Torts by John Grisham. It's very good so far, as are all of his books.

    Sword of Shanarra is so far a LOTR wannaby and a bad one at that. Take that and the fact that I didn't even enjoy LOTR (the book) that much I set it aside.

    Enemy Glory or somesuch. It has potential to be so much better, and I was enjoying it a whole lot more earlier in it. The multi-layered plot/characters thing is badly implemented, and the plot twist turned the story into something quite uninteresting
    Still, it cost be $2, so I can deal with a certain amount of mediocrity. And it really isn't bad as such.

    "Moby Dick" by Melville and "Dreamthief's daughter" by Moorcock. This summer I am double reading, one classic and one entertainment fantasy novel at the same time.

    Just started reading Harry Potter and the Order of the Pheonix to see if it's once again the same as the other books. It was a bargain at £3.73 new though and in an adult format for the cover etc. Guess they realised grown ups read this stuff too :p

    Re-reading Jack Higgins' Day of Reckoning since it sits on the kitchen windowsill to be picked up every time I feel like reading something.
