I liked october... classic. My favorite book was Rainbow Six though. Haven't read a Clancy novel in forever. :sad:

99 dungeoneering achieved, thanks to everyone that celebrated with me!

Peter Hamilton's The Reality Dysfunction, it's a 1200 page Space Opera Sci-Fi epic; it's better than it sounds! About 1/3rd of the way in, and it's good, if very descriptive at times ;)

I just finished The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time, by Mark Haddon, and was pleasantly surprised by how good it was.

My little brother was (and currently still is) woefully unaware of the wonders of SF and Fantasy, so I read the Hobbit to him, and I have to say that it was even better the fourth (?) time around.

Within the week (hopefully): http://www.amazon.co...d/dp/1423123727

Currently reading Red Storm Rising, by Tom Clancy.

It'd be better if I weren't on such a tight deadline. Or maybe it's not a tight deadline, that's the problem. I had to pick a book to read by "the end of the quarter", and picked this small print, 724 page monster by accident. I just decided "The challenge is accepted", and went with it. But I have no idea when "the end of the quarter" is, and at a pace of around 200 pages a week starting last week, I'm not sure if I'm making good time, or if I'm not even close. :blink:

I finished State of Fear by Crichton earlier this week, now on Next, also by him during my breaks. A bit more than halfway through that one.
At the same time, The Fist of God by Frederick Forsyth when I'm at home and not doing anything else.
The first one I think is the fastest I've ever read. Finished the 650ish page book in 3-4 hours. Read it before, but appreciated it much more this time. Same with the second. Would also recommend them as political books, because in spite of any potential bad science (Which I'm not going to bother to look up to check, they raise good points about the interactions between the media, legal system, and science.

I've been reading Earth by John Stewart for the past day. I'm going to move into reading The Lost Symbol and giving Eragon a try.

Lost Symbol is pretty epic.

Finished up Brave New World, wrote the paper on it. My mom picked up the newest Ranger's Apprentice book (don't remember title, #7 I think) and I'm going to start that soonish.

Also reading Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead in AP Lit.

Taking a break from science fiction/political [cabbage] with Calvin and Hobbes. I have a lot of those anthologies and it's been years since I read them.

And it's awesome.

Recently finished Dracula, Huck Finn, Notes from Underground.

Started browsing through a music history textbook (which got me to spend entire afternoons on some expressionist stuff), decided to read the Theif Lord again before I recommend it to my little brother, and am currently reading Red Dragon by Thomas Harris. It gets a little gruesome because of the way it asks you to identify with the main character and he identifies with serial killers, but I've read similar stuff before. I've liked it so far. I haven't gotten far enough to see any real motifs, but I'm excited to see where he'll go with it.

I'm still stuck in my re-reading phase... I literally have hundreds and hundreds of unread books, but for some reason I can't ever pick which to read. :unsure:


I just finished re-reading Congo by Michael Crichton.

I am currently re-reading Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden.

The Case for Christ, by Lee Strobel.

Just finished The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time, by Mark Haddon. (For English class, although it was pretty good.)

I think I'll read Fight Club next, and then watch the movie. (Have yet to do either, although both seem to be highly recommended.)
