The Doomsday Book, editted by John Morris, the Sussex segment thereof.

Regarding books that are actually somewhat interesting to speak of, I just finished Jim Butcher's Death Masks and am starting on Grave Peril... because reading books in order would just be silly.

After that I have three Torchwood books that have been sitting on a shelf since my birthday that I need to read (Trevor Baxendale's Something in the water, David Llewellyn's Trace Memory and Gary Russell's The Twilight Streets)

Right now, The Way of Zen. After that, Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind. After that, I don't know... Maybe The Holographic Universe, since I've been interested in/researching the concept since my freshman year of high school.

Finished the last book I posted about and started Prozac Highway by Persimmon Blackbridge. How joyous and uplifting my current reading list is xD

Mozzi's post reminded me I own the second book in the Tales of the Otori series. I think I'll read that next, or after the first volume of Ai no Kusabi. :3

Books, books, books. I ravage books. Well I used to. Havent read regularly since 2006 or so, but I plan on putting anime aside next year and concentrating on books again.

I have so many to get through, there's a bunch staring at me right now. Pratchett, George R. R. Martin, Greg Egan, Mars trilogy by Kim Stanley Robinson, Raymond E. Feist... not to mention a billion other books that arent staring at me, from Dean Koontz, Arthur C Clarke, Asimov, etc, etc (as you can tell I'm on a fantasy/sci-fi trip at the moment...)

Dont even get me started on non-fiction.

*siiigh*

Lately though I have managed to fit in two books, from two authors I always rush to read when they come out with a new one:

Andy McNab - Crossfire
Lee Child - Nothing To Lose

I love these kinds of books, where there's research and life experience put into them and you as a reader learn many new tricks and tips on how to survive in dangerous situations. I cant tell you how many things I've learnt in McNab's novels...

Rereading "Tales of H.P. Lovecraft" selected by Joyce Carol Oates. Obviously by H.P. Lovecraft.

There's just something about squid gods from space that makes me want to read more.

He was, but Dorian Gray was not his best work by far. His wit really shines in Importance of Being Earnest, etc.

Now reading Sebastian by Anne Bishop. Much love for fantasy, lol, (and, apparently, female authors, although Bishop isn't one of my favorites). xD

Currently I'm reading Lullaby by Chuck Palahniuk. I plan to read all his works eventually, and I already have them all purchased.

I think Chuck is a great author. I love his writing style the most out of all I've read. The books start off slow and then quickly pick up pace where you're dying to read more. Usually he has you asking lots of questions even after finishing the book. I love that :).

Any other fans of Chuck?

Reading 1421: The Year the Chinese Discovered America, which is quite an interesting take at history and the evidence that the Chinese may have discovered most of the known world before the Age of Exploration.

I'm waiting patiently, note the word patiently, for George R.R. Martin's fifth book, A Dance with Dragons. I hate the 3:1 odds of him passing away before the series is finished. :(

I heard that was really interesting read, I was thinking about picking it up...as much as I dislike reading non fiction.

The Fear Street novels by R.L Stine. Better than Goosebumps in my opinion. I have been reading Twilight, but so far, all vampire stories to me are started to run together.
