    Yes, I've read Memory, Sorrow and Thorn; it's been a while, but I remember them as being very good. Which one are you on, The Dragonbone Chair?

    Currently reading "The Earthsea Quartet" by Ursula Le Guinn. Also reading through Clockwork Orange, the Communist Manifesto and a few others I don't care to name.
    I like reading multiple books at once, reading a chapter from each gives time inbetween to fully enjoy the storyline and think about.

    Yup, about 500 pages into the Dragonbone Chair. It's good but a bit slow-moving. Nevermind, if Otherland is anything to go by, the long-windedness (is that a word?) will be well used to develop the characters. Similarly I expect that the last book would be the one where things REALLY get going...

    Hosts, by F. Paul Wilson (I highly recommend the "Repairman Jack" series, of which this is the latest out in paperback).

    Book 3 of "A Song of Ice and Fire", "A Storm of Swords". It is disgusting how addictive this series is. ;)

    I guess book 10 just seemed to move a little slow for me, seeming to cover the events of a few days at most even kinda picking up before the end of book 9. Thee one good thing though is that it gives me hope that there's many more books to come in the series yet.

    I'm reading Journey into the Void (Weis-Hickman). It seems like there has been so much time in-between each book that it takes me forever to piece all the characters together)

    Just fifnished this book called Grendel (Josh Gardner). More of a Novela but its a funny book based on Beowulf but written from the poit of view of Grendel.

    I also just read "Patiotism, the Last Resort of Scoundrels" (can't remeber) a political satire about the birth of our country, very funny also.

    1-My First FR book, The Thousand Orcs, the first of the Hunter's Blades Trilogy.

    2-A book that analyzes dreams. Last night, I had a dream about swimming, so I checked what the book said on the subject. It said that I would soon have success in some undertaking. And it was right! I did all the math homework I had last night during my lunch period! :p

    Memoirs Of A Geisha by Arthur Golden. Unbelievable.

    I don't know how any of you managed to get through any of Robert Jordan's series. Buugh. I think I bought 4-5 of them and got through maybe two.

    [​IMG] Homeland.

    Nearing the end. Soon to invade exile :) I already read Sojourn so i wont do it again.

    I must say i imagined Drow to be more cruel and arrogant than these that are in the book. Well, i'll see if they become any more evil :heh:


    Edit:
    I'd reply that i'm reading Exile now, but i cant double-post.
    Post people, try to keep up with my reading :shake: :spin: :rolling: :borg:
