[B]We talk about books here. Books are good for you. Read some. [B]RULES: 1) Talk about books and only books. No posts that don't have to do with books please. 2) DO NOT SPOIL BOOKS 3) When introducing a book, include a picture, breif summary, and personal thoughts on the book. 4) Do not flame others for their book tastes. Not even 'Twilight' [/B][/B] Other thread was just autolocked, I think. Also I'm reading Eragon again just because.

replying to a post in the last thread [quote=SnakeSolid]I'm not really fond of science fiction books, instead I like stories which deal with the theme of human nature and its dark side, like what Macbeth does. Does anyone have recommendations?[/quote] if you haven't read or seen it already, Hamlet.

spooky villages: the complete collection
Reading a novel called "Dance Dance Dance" by Haruki Murakami, it's brilliant, as is everything that man craps out. He could spit on a piece of used toilet paper, and it would still be book of the year.
Hay I'm reading the eragon series atm too :P on the last book.
Just my luck to get the last post before lock. Bought A Game of Thrones (again) just now. Now I have the whole series in hardcover. Also got Century Rain by Reynolds and a zombie novel called Autumn by David Moody. Let's hope it's another positive surprise like Grant's Feed.
[IMG]http://blogs.desales.edu/library/files/2010/08/possessed.jpg[/IMG] Starting "The Possessed" very soon. I realized that Dostoevsky was awesome after reading Crime and Punishment for school. [QUOTE=venn178;34511891] I like Stephen King a bit. [/QUOTE] Fun and useless fact: It was "It" that got me into reading in the first place. Edit: I just realized how it looks when I'm discussing Russian literature posted from a Mac. It's ok, I kind of hate me too.

Dostoevski and Kafta are awesome. Reading Dante's Paradisio atm (underrated compared to inferno).

Thinking of starting the Mass Effect books after if I can actually find them in my local stores.

He's talking about the Sword of Truth series by Terry Goodkind :v: Not read Sword of Shannara, my friend really rates it. The Sword of Truth series is fantastic though. Really really good example of non-Tolkien high fantasy
My favourite book. Definitely worth opening. [img]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/18481559/Photo036.jpg[/img] ... [img]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/18481559/Photo037.jpg[/img]
Wheel of time is probably better than SoT in my opinion, but that's just me. Mostly because I love Elayne
[QUOTE=Uludayen;34518167]Wheel of time is probably better than SoT in my opinion, but that's just me. Mostly because I love Elayne[/QUOTE] Lan is the most awesome character in the series imo, I wish they had more stuff from his pov.
Lan is cool, but he's generally boring to me. My favorite male character is probably Mat, and Rand second. I never really liked Perrin, even though he reminds me most of myself. I guess I don't like myself, derp.

Lannisters 4. Greyjoys (?) 5. Targaryens
