Just finished Blaze by Stephen King. Must say I had no hopes for this book when I started it, but ended up enjoying it. Now I am going to start "The Road".

Just finished reading The Spy Who Came in from the Cold by John le Carre'. One of the best spy novels I've ever read. Highly recommended.

The complete Bone in one volume. About 100 pages left and it's fantastic. A book for all ages.

Uh... trick question... dcfox waxes and JFD hasn't sprouted nub fuzz yet.

I'm slowly reading Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. Can anyone recommend me some good sci-fi?

Hyperion and Fall of Hyperion, by Dan Simmons
A Fire Upon The Deep, by Vernor Vinge
The Forever War, by Joe Halderman

Those three (four) are probably my favorite sci-fi novels ever.

Had a super slow day at work, so I was reading some short stories online. Got through "--All You Zombies--" by Robert Heinlein and I Have No Mouth And I Must Scream by Harlan Ellison. Both were phenomenal.

By four o'clock I've discounted suicide in favor of killing everyone else in the entire world instead.

Just finished Euclid's Window. Historical look at geometry and how we have changed our view of the world around as geometry & mathematics has changed. I read through it quickly, so definitely an interesting read if you are into the evolution of mathematics/geometry.

Deciding on starting either The Picture of Dorian Gray or Physics of the Impossible.

Just finish reading The Song of Susannah: The Dark Tower vol6. Not my favorite of the six, but I still enjoyed it.

Currently reading The Running Man.

Thanks, I'll check those out. I took a break from Fellowship of the Ring and started reading Fight Club.

Just finished The Road, now looking forward to the movie, I want to see how they managed to translate that book onto film.

Going to read Thinner By Bachman next (King I guess). I remember the movie being horrible, but am going to try the book out anyways.

Thinner is actually a good brisk read

Never judge King by movies made off his books they never seem to go well. I think it is because one of his strengths is the realistic way he has characters think which you can't translate to film

Finished The Duplicated Man over the weekend, then quickly read The Atheist's Mass by Honore de Balzac. Now I'm on to John Dies At The End by David Wong.

By four o'clock I've discounted suicide in favor of killing everyone else in the entire world instead.

Yea, I happened to throw it in an order to get free shipping from Amazon. Absolutely loving it so far, and I hate David Wong because he has written what I always strive to write. This has a good chance of becoming my favorite book.

Outliers by Malcom Gladwell. Entertaining and nice to be reading something that requires thought as opposed to something that Book X of The X Saga.

To anybody who's a Pro.Wrestling fan I'd encourge you to read a book called "Ring Of Hell", It's a great read. http://www.amazon.co...97775797 <br />

Changes by Jim Butcher. It's the 12th book in the Dresden Files series of novels. They center around a detective in Chicago (who also happens to be a wizard). Great series. Here's a quote from the first novel to help you get a feel for the character....

"Kids. You gotta love them. I adore children. A little salt, a squeeze of lemon - perfect."

Just finished Thinner by Stephen King. I vaguely remembered the movie, mostly that it sucked, but I did enjoy the book.

Now I am onto The Bachman books. I am starting to think I enjoy King's work a lot more when he wrote as Bachman than as himself.

Had to put Alas, Babylon on hold for a few days while I read this:

A lady at work let me borrow it and I feel obligated to get through it as quickly as possible. I'm a little past the half way point. It's very slow but its oddly compelling and is holding my interest. I have a feeling the final hundred pages or so are going to be very interesting.
