Right now I'm reading:

The Source by James A. Michener (historical fiction)
This is very interesting. It's about the roots and history of the Jewish faith and peoples. "Centennial" is another good one of Michener's.

Brave Companions by David McCullough (historical nonfiction)
So far so good. It is a collection of essays written about little-known historical figures. He has a very pleasing writing style that really draws you in.

The Saxon Shore by Jack Whyte (historical fiction/fantasy)
This is the fourth book in a series called The "Camulod Chronicles" here in the states; It's called "A Dream of Eagles" in the rest of the world (a better name if you ask me). This is an account of the roots of the Arthurian Legend, beginning with the withdrawl of the Roman Empire from Britain, a time period that I find facsinating. It's not what I thought it would be, but it's still pretty entertaining.
Shadow of a Dark Queen by Raymond E. Feist, volume one of the Serpent War Saga. The story is set after the Riftwar Saga series and it's quite nice because it still mentions the goings on of characters in that series. He's a genius writer. Smile

A good (long) choice.


I'm currently reading "A Game of Thrones" (the first part of 'A Song Of Ice And Fire') by George R.R. Martin. It's extremely good! Why didn't I start reading this series before?! Smile
stephen kings "just after sunset" its a book of short stories by stephen king and......its alright, im just into the third short story and if this one isnt good i think im going to put it down and forget about it.......


I've been reading "H.P. Lovecraft's Letters, Volume 2".

It's estimated that Lovecraft wrote over 100,000 letters during his lifetime; many of which were to people like Clark Ashton Smith, Robert E. Howard, Robert Bloch and a bunch of other people published in "Weird Tales" magazine.
Right now just The Stuff of Thought by Steven Pinker. Its really interesting. The online meaning of the word spam came from Monty Python. I never knew that :O
I'm reading Ragwitch by Garth Nix. Haven't gotten really far, but this dude is a genius, so I have high hopes for the book.
