    I have just started the Wheel of Time books. And I am hooked. 10 years ago when I first discovered them I was daunted by the sheer amount of these books, thinking I would never have the time to read them all or have the patience. But to be honest the moment I opened up the Eye of the World I havent put the book down, in less than a week I am over half way through and have already ordered the second book The Great Hunt.

    Some fantasy books take me ages to get into maybe some really just drag, but I like the pacing in this book, it goes just about right to me, I love books with alot of character development and world descriptions. Its kind of like if I were to write a fantasy book it would be like this.

    I kind of wished I had picked up the books 10 years ago now, especially as I had more time to read them as I do now but I am still getting through them very fast now.

    I'm nearly finished with Stone of Tears by Terry Goodkind. Recently decided to read all the books again, they're really great

    Just started reading Gardens of the Moon by Steven Erickson, I've got to read some more before I wanna say what I think about it. But I've only heard good things about the series (Malazan)

    The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman. I found the movie to be pretty cool but then the ending just left me on a cliffhanger and I wanted to know what happened next so I decided to get back into reading and start with the His Dark Materials series. I like it, it's pretty cool.

    if you like Tempest and Hamlet, can i reccomend looking up the Manga/Anime Zetsuen No Tempest on Crunchy Roll? its based upon Shakespearean work.

    Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers as a recommendation from my bosses' wife, and it's a pretty awesome book.

    I'v just finished Lady of the Shades by Darren Shan, actually couldn't put it down.

    Now I'm trying to choose between Lord of the Flies or To kill a Mockingbird.

    Funny that you mention that, because Zetsuen No Tempest is the reason i want to read them
    The story is supposed to mirror both books, also the mass of quotes seem highly interesting, also Shakespear is an absolut classic and often regarded as a must read for every reading fan, so i am pretty excited for the books ^^

    The Joy of Hate: How to Triumph over Whiners in the Age of Phony Outrage by Greg Gutfeld

    Greg Gutfeld hates artificial tolerance. At the root of every single major political conflict is the annoying coddling Americans must endure of these harebrained liberal hypocrisies. In fact, most of the time liberals uses the mantle of tolerance as a guise for their pathetic intolerance. And what we really need is smart intolerance, or as Gutfeld reminds us, what we used to call common sense.

    The Joy of Hate tackles this conundrum head on--replacing the idiocy of open-mindness with a shrewd judgmentalism that rejects stupid ideas, notions, and people. With countless examples grabbed from the headlines, Gutfeld provides readers with the enormous tally of what pisses us all off. For example:
    - The double standard: You can make fun of Christians, but God forbid Muslims. It's okay to call a woman any name imaginable, as long as she's a Republican. And no problem if you're a bigot, as long as you're politically correct about it.
    - The demonizing of the Tea Party and romanticizing of the Occupy Wall Streeters.
    - The media who are always offended (see MSNBC lineup)
    - How critics of Obamacare or illegal immigration are somehow immediately labeled racists.
    - The endless debate over the Ground Zero Mosque (which Gutfeld planned to open a Muslim gay bar next to).
    - As well as pretentious music criticism, slow-moving ceiling fans, and snotty restaurant hostesses.

    Just started reading Double Indemnity by James M. Cain for my English 101 class. We're going in detail on the Film Noir genre. It is interesting enough, even if the characters aren't fleshed out at all.
    "There is no teacher but the enemy. No one but the enemy will tell you what the enemy is going to do. No one but the enemy will ever teach you how to destroy and conquer. Only the enemy shows you where you are weak. Only the enemy tells you where he is strong. And the rules of the game are what you can do to him and what you can stop him from doing to you." -Mazer Rackham - Ender's Game Orson Scott Card

    Having finished Burmese Days, I found it a surprisingly wry Orwell book, as well as an interesting overview of colonial Burma. I'm now reading the Third Policeman by Flann O'Brian. I always found James Joyce a bit smug for my liking, but Third Policeman is similar in post-modernism, but it's funnier and more intriguing. Dark, too. It's a relief to not have to pick up a reference book every 5 seconds.
    So what happened between you and this Renwick customer?

    Just started on Angelology by Danielle Trussoni from what I've read so far it feels a bit sluggish, hoping it will pick up later on
