    Currently working on a collection of Sherlock Holmes cases. Its really interesting just how amazing that guy truly is.

    Also 1 question, did someone read grimms fairy tales? I always thought it were just childrens storys like snow white and so on, but i heard the original ones were much darker and more adult material.

    You should most definitely read the books, after the trilogy, you can read the Hobbit, and the Silmarillion.

    I'm currently reading, The Spirit of The Laws by Montesquieu.

    50 shades of grey.
    While I think the book is complete garbage, every other girl I know has read it so I have to read it too, so that I would at least know what they are talking about. And to read it first and judge later, though I have to admit that my opinion about it before reading was *garbage*, while reading it also remained *garbage*.

    Looking forward to being done with it. Next book on my night table is Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami. I read it in my early teens and am looking forward to reading it now as an adult.

    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 ^^
    Although those are plays, and should be seen on stage (if possible), i would definitely recommend reading them, even as books they are extremely great. I red Hamlet when i was quite young, and it remains one of my favourite reading experience.

    The Sonnets are quite nice too.

    Already done, extremely difficult as a german, but very interesting nonetheless. As mentioned earlier, still busy with Sherlock Holmes, but after that its time for Bram Stokers Dracula.
    I really love the Penguin Popular Classics Series, almost every must read book in the original version and for only 2,99 €. Already looking for the next couple to buy, but couldnt decide yet ^^

    I could not agree more, I have Dracula in this edition (and many other books). Penguin Popular's price seems to remain steady. French editions no longer have a small cost edition similar to Penguin popular.

    There is also a short novel I would like to recommend : Bartleby, the Scrivener, by Herman Melville.

    Just finishing off The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson (amazing, amazing book -- really wish they would make it into a movie), having recently finished a re-read of the Wheel of Time series + the final book (A Memory of Light). All I can say about WoT is: damn, what a ride.

    Next on my list is Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes. Had never heard of her before, but despite the cheesy character synopsis, it actually sounds like an intriguing read.

    Oooh yes, I picked up several of those a few months ago.
    Read Moby Dick (hard work!), Gulliver's Travels and The Portrait of Dorian Grey, still have Frankenstein to read.
    Bram Stoker's Dracula is good - hope you enjoy it.

    "Eden Feint" a very good thriller by Ken McKea. Third one in the Jim Dallas series.

    I have Moby Dick, The Tempest, Hamlet, Dracula and The Adventures Of Sherlock Holmes. I already read Frankenstein in german, but was fairly disapointed. It was nothing like what i expected. I thought of something more horror-like, but it was "just" a tragedy exclusively.

    Soon done with A Dance with Dragons. Will probably move on to Malazan Book of the Fallen, then The Wheel of Time. It's going to take a while.

    Just finished Shift by Hugh Howey. It was alright. Sequel to Wool, which is a NYT bestseller and a soon-to-be-made movie. That was alright too.

    If this headache goes away long enough for me to get my work done, I'm gonna start on John Dies at the End, written by my boss. I've heard nothing but good about the book, and I haven't really read a comedy+horror mashup before.

    I read Old Man's War after I finished Mistborn. I usually alternate between a sci-fi series and fantasy series though. Currently reading Nine Princes in Amber series.
