What short stories are in that one? I feel like I've read that but I can't remember...

I am currently reading Hardcore Zen by Brad Warner and Columbine by Dave Cullen. They're both pretty interesting but I've hit a boring part in Hardcore Zen and kind of stopped reading it.

ARGH! George R.R. Martin is my favourite author. A Song Of Ice And Fire is amazing, I'm still waiting for the latest book to come out. I even have a tattoo the length of my arm dedicated to the series Toungue

"A Song of Ice and Fire is awesome. It just takes GRRM soooooo looooong between volumes!

But they're long books, and he doesn't outline them first, so I guess it's understandable. Still frustrating, though.

I'm re-reading The Cornish Trilogy by Roberston Davies, although I've been spending too much time online and not enough in the pages of the book this week.

I've been so scatter lately. I got side tracked.
I was reading the Course in Mirracles by Marrianne Williamson.

The type of reading I do is more of textbooks, instruction manuals, or selfhelp books.
I enjoy reading them. There's short stories that has sometype of wisdom in these types
of books. I enjoy reading them as some people enjoy reading novels.

I'm able to focus better. My reading speed is improving.
My writting skills is also improving. (if I slow down.lol)
Plus I'm not using my laptop with sticky a keyboard.

"Centennial" by James Michener. It's good. It also contains the single most shocking (not in a gross way) and traumatic moment I've ever read in a novel.

Well, that's intriguing! I may have to check it out. I haven't read Michener in years. I think the last one I read was Space or Caravans

The Philosopher and the wolf (can't remember who the author is)

I generally love fantasy books but I also love wolves so any books containing fantasy or wolves is great and if it contains both then chances are I've already read it Toungue
