    Just finished re-reading the whole Foundation series, and re-reading the End of Science and the Undiscovered Mind. Right now I'm reading some technical books, and also Goete's "Faust" (a book which I neglected to read some time ago).

    O.k. just finished dissolution by Richerd Beyers, I was surprised in a good way by this book. Good story telling, battles are nicely done and of course menzoberranzan still rules.

    I just got an e-mail confirmation from amazon and 'Insurrection' is on my way, that of course will be my next book.

    @monkey, nice name :D

    "Metroland" by Julian Barnes - I've just finished it. A very good novel, although I felt the ending was a little weak.

    Silmarillion by J.R.R. Tolkien. Just started reading it second time.

    Triumph of the Darksword by Margaret Weis & Tracy Hickman. It is a good book, but I liked Deathgate series more.

    Elfsong by Elaine Cunningham.

    I'm in the middle of The Annotated Chronicles (Dragons of Winter Night) by Weis and Hickman -- and becoming quite a DL fan! The book has a great blend of humor and sadness -- have hardly been able to put it down. :D

    Where are the Customers Yachts? - Fred Schwed (or something like that, it's at home)

    Written in 1940 ish, it's a good look at Wall Street and those that inhabit it. Funny, not dated, I highly recommend it.

    [​IMG] It's all about RA. Salvortore's awesome books and right now I'm reading "Siege of Darkness" in the Legacy of the Drow. If you haven't read Salvatore's books and you like fantasy then you just don't know what your missing and I suggest you start now. Go down to your local book store and pick up a copy of the Icewind Dale Trilogy.
    (or of course you could order through sorcers palace if you're feeling real nice)

    Kovalis... I just finished The Dark Elf Trilogy and I wholeheartedly agree with you. Salvatore rocks. Starting Icewind Dale Trilogy in a day or so.

    Just started the Salmon of Doubt.

    How good is it to read some Douglas Adams that I haven't read before! I'll tell you: It's great.

    A sad loss indeed that this man was taken from us.

    What a guy.
