Im all about the fantasy right now Reading Dhampir since my friend got me the first book to see if Id like it. So far so good then got myself a copy of The Princess Bride since ive loved that movie ever since I first saw it years ago. After that I may try to finish my sword of truth series.

Now re reading the Stand got myself the uncut version of the book so I want to see what I missed out on in the original version. Though I hear its not much. Also between that reading The Messiah Complex comic series finally got a comic series I actually dance around waiting for it to arrive in the mail for again ^_^

Heeded "Dune" recommendations, went and read Herbert's "A-W-F-Unlimited".

Just finished Nora Gal's "A Word: living and dead" - she is incredible.

Re-reading Lukyanenko(again!), and taking peeks at "Le Rouge et le Noir" in between.

Just finished 'The Last Wish', by Andrzej Sapkowski.

In an attempt to getting read up on the classics, I've finally started reading 'Songs of Ice and Fire', by George RR Martin.

Chesterton's "Magic". Incredible.

(Chesterton says it is perfectly natural that a man should talk to himself. If he doesn't talk to himself, it is because he is not worth talking to.)

Wise Children by Angela Carter, for a seminar. Quite funny. :)
"Show me how you do that trick! The one that makes me scream", she said,
"the one that makes me laugh!" she said and threw her arms around my neck.
"Show me how you do it and I promise you, I promise that
I'll run away with you, I'll run away with you..."

Hey, I'm reading that now.  Well, just about to actually.  It got bumped the other day when I had to read Lukyanenko's Watch trilogy thing.  (I meant to just read Night Watch, but knowing there were two more drove me to distraction so I had to read them all.)

Edit:  Damnit!  There are four!  I feel... distracted.  Must find...
Edit2:  Not available yet.  This sucks.  What if I die and never know what happened next?  Then I'd be dead and annoyed.

There's no earthly way of knowing
Which direction we are going
There's no knowing where we're rowing
Or which way the river's flowing

There are four "Watches" in total, yes. I can tell what happens, but I don't want to disappoint you. :) The last two books are good, but parts 1 and 2 are the best, in my opinion.

(But you haven't read his "Stars", yet! And "Labyrinth of Reflections"! And "Dreamline", and "Cold shores", and, and... *envious*).

Just finished the final (released) book of Song of Ice and Fire. Colour me duly impressed - and definitely hooked into buying the next one when it becomes available.

In a further attempt to cover my classics, I've started reading the first book of Jim Butcher's "The Dresden Files".

I am reading part two of the second book right now. Very impressed, too.

Finished "The Dresden Files" quite some time ago, adding another 'series to check for updates on' to my list. Highly recommended to anyone who likes fantasy stories and detective stories.

On that note, I'm reading "Thud!" right now, by Terry Pratchett.
