    Reading The Return of The King, about half way through atm. After that I'll prolly either read: A song of Ice and Fire, or the Hunger Games series.... Thinking about reading The Divine Comedy and Paradise Lost, but not too sure about those yet.

    I'd go ASoIaF, Hunger Games is a YA novel, with a few exceptions they tend to turn me off. That, and ASoIaF is very good, one of the few times that the hype is justified.

    I'm guessing you're about a third, maybe 50% into it. Come say that when you've finished.

    I'm currently reading Billy Budd, Sailor by Herman Melville for my AP British Literature and Composition course at school. It's a roughly 90 page novella about this seemingly innocent, handsome sailor who gets into a heap of trouble. It's awful; not so much because of the plot, but due to the overwhelming amount of elevated and figurative language used by the author; it seems like every single word on every single page is either an allusion to Greek mythology, the Bible, or has some manner of symbolism behind the scenes. I discourage anyone from reading it.

    The last book I read was about Peter-No-Tail. That was when I was like 10 or something, so ~13 years ago. I just can't do it anymore, completely unable to focus on pages and pages with nothing but text on them for longer than 5-15 minutes. Tried it some years ago with Lord of the Rings book. didn't get very far.

    Holy hell that book is hard to read, but still so good.

    Good thing. It helps to understand how a book that only has a few hundred pages could indeed be 3 feature filsm. Something that people don't seem to believe is possible of feasible.

    You ever considered audio books? Some are extremely well done and beautifully narrated.

    I 2nd that. I'm currently having to drive 13 hours every weekend to take care of my grandmother. I'm listening to George R.R. Martin's books to pass the time. Audiobooks are a great way to capture wasted time and make them productive.

    Finished Neverwinter and now waiting on the last book in that set. In the meantime I am reading Why We Get Fat: And What To Do About It.

    Re-reading all the Harry Potter novels. Noticed last week you can buy them as eBooks now! On Order of the Phoenix atm.

    Will probably resume reading the Game of Thrones books after. On Clash of Kings.

    Still on a bit of a Pratchett kick and re-reading the Fifth Elephant.
    Because Sir Samuel Vimes really does prod buttock. Definitely my favourite Discworld character.

    Well, no. He isn't. In fact his work is pretty limited to a certain region.

    Anyway, reading The Knight of the The Wizard Knight duo by Gene Wolfe once more.

    I started A Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson last night, glad I got it on my Kobo and not in hard cover, there is no way I am lugging that tome around.
