    @ Falstaff - I am reading Shadow Puppets right now. Pretty good, but I still can't find anything he writes that is as riveting as Ender's Game.

    @dmc - True, true - as good as the "shadow" series is, it cannot hold up to the one that started it all... However, the Children of the Mind was pretty darned good.

    Anyways - finished Pride and Prejudice, reading The Thousand Orcs as well as Wuthering Heights. Very exciting

    Return of the Shadow...by JRR Tolkien and compiled by Christopher Tolkien...At the risk of sounding like a king dork, I know the next 4 books I'll read...
    1-Baldur's Gate 2: Throne of Bhaal
    2-Lord of Stormweather
    3-Gilead's Blood (a Warhammer novel, but it looks pretty cool)
    4-The Thousand Orcs

    While I were away I finished Darksword Saga. The last book was strange (but good) mix of good fantasy, science fiction and time travelling.

    I started Servant of the Shard, and so far it has been quite good.

    Just started reading the most recent Robert Jordan WoT book just because it exists and I've read all the others.

    After that I'm finishing Dorothy Dunnett's Lymond Chronicles.

    @ LoS_DrIzZt4

    I also thought so when I was reading third book, but it changed interesting, because it's so different.

    I am suffering from the fact that I have read and re-read all my books countless of times... and I a) have no access to the library ue to unpaid fines and b) cam't afford new books.

    Thus, I suffer.

    But the last book I read was Maskerade by Terry Pratchett.... go Pratchett!

    I'm currently re-reading the Chicks in Chainmail series. "Chicks in Chainmail", "Chicks & Chained Males", "The Chick is in the Mail", and "Did you say Chicks?!" It's about all the intellectual stimulation my brain can handle right now and so funny! All titles available for purchase from SP too. ;)

    I have just finished The Outsiders, why does my school seem to have an obsession with giving us really sad books that involve the main characters dying?
    Anyhow, really good book.

    James Clavell's Shogun.
    Saga of epic proportions on 17th century Japan. Long but worth every bit (and any sleepless night spent on it).

    Kralizek, I love that book. Be sure to read Tai-Pan, Gaijin and Noble Huse too... in that order, to keep things from going messy and spoiley....

    re-reading Exile. Just re-read Thornhold. Also re-read the SIlent Blade skipping all the non-Entreri parts....

    Bored. Need books.

    @JSBB: Have you read Lynn Abbey's latest, Sanctuary? I can't wait for the next anthology (Turning Point, iirc) to be out in paperback, come December. :roll:

    Thieves' World DEFINITELY survived our recent library-minimization efforts.
