Promethea, by Alan Moore

Why? Moore's work is riveting, and I hadn't read this yet. I saw it in the library recently, and wanted a break before starting in on the next novel.

How far? I'm most of the way through book 4 (of a 5-volume anthology).

I'm also reading a ton of manga: Tri-Gun (OK), Mobile Suit Gundam (excellent), Dragon Knights (terrible), as well as the first anthology volume of Whiteout (very good). All this is sort of filler before I start in on No Country for Old Men; I'm putting that off until I finish my film review for Fanpop.

I am currently reading "Inside the Mind of Gideon Rayburn" by Sarah Miller. It sounded like a really interesting POV that the book is based from, and it looked great.
i found it on the website whatshouldireadnext.com, amazing website, after i had typed in one of my favorite books.

Now almost done with Interworld by Neil Gaiman & Michael Reeves

Why? Because I saw it whilst wandering the bookstore and ummm it's GAIMAN!

This could easily be read in one sitting as it's a YA book ofonly 239 pages, but I started it on Lars' day off so I didn't have uninterupted reading time yesterday. Will finish it today ;)

I'm reading The Amber Spyglass part of His Dark Materials Trilogy by Philip Pullman

Why?
Because the two books before this one were amazing (This is the last book in the series)! He is a wonderful writer.

How Far?
-About 80 pages in, it is about 350 pages

"A" is for Alibi by Sue Grafton

Why: I'm really addicted to crime books right now and I finished all of Kathy Reichs's books (have to wait until August for the new one). I started reading Grafton's books in middle school, but got sidetracked, so now I'm starting all over again.

How far: Last Chapter!

I'm reading Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone for the fourth time now. I usually reread all the books about once a year, and the time has come yet again, lol

Reading The Rebel Angels by i can't remember. Its the one written in the early 1900's, not the Gemma Doyle one (although I liked that too!)

I'm reading it because my friend and I were exchanging book suggestions and this is what she reccomended.

I'm only like four chapters in, around where Parlabane invites Maria for food. Its really funny and interesting so far, but my English teacher caught me reading before I could get any further!

i'm rereading The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde, which is the first book in the Thursday Next series. why? because they're amazing, but also because i'm lending the series to a friend come the summer and i wanted to reread them first.
i'm about halfway through it at the moment, and loving every minute!

I'm reading Thornyhold by Mary Stewart

Why? Because someone recommended it to me, plus I'm waiting for all my chicklit holds to come into the library (what can I say, they're addicting).

How far: Only 40 pages in. I'm not liking it very much so far, but maybe that's because I'm not a huge fan of fantasy.

The Guardian by Nicholas Sparks.

I'm reading it for three reasons, I suppose. The first, my friend and her family recommended it to me and have told me it was very enjoyable. The second, I've read other Nicholas Sparks books and they were all wonderful. Lastly, I love to read. =)

I'm not very far at all. Perhaps ninety pages in, if that.

I'm reading Red is for Remembrance because I read the other ones and I'm only on page 66
over a year ago _lina_ said…
21 Proms (a collection of short stories by a bunch of different authors)

Why: Because I gave up on Thornyhold (see above) and needed some light reading. And because someone somewhere recommended it to me.

How far: Only three stories left.

Last half of the last book in the His Dark Materials series (The Amber Spyglass)

Why? I've read it before but it was long ago, and a recent rash of comments from some religious nutcase prompted me to read them again. heh. Fabulous series.

The Canterbury Tales (Chaucer)

A reread. For class. But fun nonetheless.

How far: The Miller's Tale (one of my favorites).

The Portrait of a Marriage by Nigel Nicolson. Why? I'm reading it because it is a study of a very unconventional marriage where 2 bisexauls love each other happily. To allow for their natures, a open policy is adapted.

Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchet.

I'm reading it because of tweakpotter's recommendation video. It's rather good so far, I'm glad I took up the recommendation.

Ah, I'm about about halfway or so.

Just reading 'Web' By John Wyndham

Why? Because it sounds strangely similar to lost, and so far it might as well be!

How far? Just finished chapter 2 with the history of the island... I sense danger though!!!

Oh gosh - just to say i loved Red is for Remembrance - that whole series is great lol :D

How far? I am just at the end, it kinka sucks when you have read the book so many times that the ending no longer makes you cry :D lol

"The Host" by Stephenie Meyer

Why: Because I loved the Twilight series

I am 268 pages in
over a year ago _lina_ said…
"Me Talk Pretty One Day" by David Sedaris

Why: because someone here recommended it, and I needed a break from all the chick lit I consumed over the past few weeks.

How Far: bit more than half-way done
over a year ago Gabitha said…
Oh i read the Host a few weeks ago, are you enjoying it kitkat?
over a year ago ToastedRabbits said…
I'm reading The Host also.

Also because I loved the Twilight series. x)

I'm somewhere around 250 pages into it.

[Gabitha, I'm enjoying it myself. =) It's pretty good so far. What did you think of it?

Edit: Me Talk Pretty One Day, I though, was a great book as well! A nice relief from some of the more heavy books out there.]

I'm reading The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini

Why: Because my grandma and mom said it was really good and that I should read it. That made me interested.

How far: I'm just over halfway through the book. I am really enjoying it. The writing is beautiful.
over a year ago Gabitha said…
Hi ToastedRabbits, I loved the Host, i thought it was a great book, though it did take me a few pages to really get into it once i did i enjoyed it all the way through! lol :D

btw i loved the kite runner, it is very well written! :]
over a year ago DrDevience said…
ToastedRabbits - Good Omens is one of my favorite books, by two of my favorite authors. How did you like it? Try American Gods next ;>

Right now I am half-way through 'A Dirty Job' by Christopher Moore, another of my all time favorite authors.

Tis about a regular kinda guy who gets put in the position of being Death. Funny as hell.

Why? Because I adore Moore's smart-assed writing style.

When I finish this tonight, I'm moving on to another of his books: 'You Suck' (about vampires with issues)
over a year ago ToastedRabbits said…
Awesome, Gabitha! :3 I finished the other day, I thought it was good as well. I liked how the ending went, everything was happening so fast and I was all 'What are they gonna dooo?! D:'

And I loved it, Dr.D. One of my favorites now, as well. And, American Gods? -writes that down- I'm going to an old antique/book shop today, and I'll keep an eye out for it. Though nothing is organized there and I doubt I will, but still.

I'm reading The Door Into Summer, again for the second time, by Robert A. Heinlein.

Why? It's one of my all-time favorite books and I wanted to read it again.

I'm about 1/4th done.

Edit;; I ebded up finding The Kite Runner there, so I got that. :D

The Inheritance of Loss by Kiran Desai

I literally just started it.

Why? Because my aunt is a AP English teacher and as part of my graduation present she sent me a bunch of books that she really likes. This is the first one I've started.

On 26 June 2008, I am reading I, Claudius, which is a great book by Robert Graves. It's a fictionalized account of the Roman Empire through the first several Caesars. Just last night I watched the film The Other Boleyn Girl, and large parts of it reminded me of the madness of the Caesars (even though it wasn't a particularly good film, overall).

"They came to Bagdad" by Agatha Christie.

Why?
I love crime books and I enjoy Agatha Christie's books. Sometimes she repeats some elements, but they're still fun to read.

How far?
20 pages? The main character (strong and smart young lady, just like in most of the books that don't feature one of her famous characters) has just decided to go to Bagdad to follow a guy she met while she was feeding birds.

"The Almost Moon" by Alice Sebold.

Why?

How far?
A couple of chapters.

Les Miserables by Victor Hugo

Because my friend *made* me watch the musical, and consequently wanted me to read the book. Although I'm enjoying it immensely.

With the Wilbour translation, I'm on page 1,065. Jean Valjean takes his revenge. :)

WHY?: I love,love ,love science-fiction novels. I've read a few of Dick's other books previously (A Scanner Darkly, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? and Ubik) and found his work to be throughly interesting and enjoyable to read.
