    Sea of swords (Salvatore)

    Helliconia Spring (Aldiss)

    And bit by bit: Mona Lisa Overdrive by Gibson (literally bit by bit, I'm forced to read it on my computer in English, because the translation is absolutely s****** and unreadable. Sorry, swearwords necessary.)

    I am just beginning to read Fortress in the Eye of Time by C.J. Cherryh. It is interesting, I must say.

    Origin by Stephan Baxter.

    I just ran over my toe...

    Maybe reading it isn't the right work, as it's just sitting on my desk with a bookmark in it.

    I haven't read other than school books in looong time... philosophy, psychology, biology... blergh... hopefully I have exams of them this week and I don't have to read them anymore.

    One book I got from school is Aldolus Huxley's Brave New World. And I have to write an essay about sexuality in that book.

    When I have time, I'll finish Sea of Swords, and maybe start reading LotR again.

    Brave New World should be very good, at least I've heard so...

    I finally.... finally, finally, finally... started the Robin Hobb books.
    Soo.. I just read Assasin's Apprentice and I'm about halfway through Royal Assasin. I haven't even noticed yet that the entire collection is setting me back a pretty penny. It's just so amazing...

    *sigh* Didn't sleep last nightm,, and read Robert (?) McNabb's Firwewall and Pratchett's Night Watch.

    I like Fitrewall... it's set mostly in Finland and partly in estonia. I don'ytt like the way it presents Estonia, but I found it amusingg that I was, wghen I first read the book, perhaps a hundred meters away from some of the pplaces where the book had scenes... :rolleyes:

    The Changeling Sea by Patricia McKillip. Unlike her other books, it's "young adult" fare, but it's still a great story.

    I have just finished "Disgrace" my J.M Coetzee. My very first nobel prize winner and I am proud to say that I somewhat liked it. I cant really put the finger on what I liked but the book had me reading and the characters made me feel, mostly anger but still.

    I started reading and playing FR solo adventure named 'Knight of the Living Dead' last night. That book is over 14 years old. It has interesting story: player character, an undead paladin, who remembers nothing about his past, tries to save city of Waterdeep from other undead (PS:T comes to mind, doesn't it?)

    Hehe,

    I can join in the Nobel laureate reading myself, having just finished "One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich" - Alexander Solzhenitsyn. Good read.

    Currently on "Dude where's my country?" - Michael Moore and "Shadow Puppets" - Orson Scott Card. Good stuff!

    Card's Shadow books are the true sequels to Ender's game in my opinion, true to the style and spirit of that marvelous novel. Not nearly as good, especially not in the later instalments but still a lot more interesting to read than "Xenocide" and "Speaker of the dead" and those. Card paints up a very simplistic world though but even so it works, ethnic prejudices galore! ;)

    Just finished two which I urge all of you to check out - Mick Foley's "Tietam Brown" and Steven Sherrill's "The Minotaur takes a Cigarette Break". Also started on Michael Asher's "The Eye Of Ra". Bit slow so far.

    Faragon, good going!

    *snicker* They call me a Vogon for a reason.... :evil:

    Me, I am re-reading the Secret History, by Donna Tartt. A translated version, but a good one nonetheless.
