    there's a topic called what are you listening to, someone made one that got locked called what are you watching, but everyone writes that in the what are you listening to thread, but I NEVER hear anyone talk about what they're reading, and I really like to know stuff like that, Feel free to lock this but .. It's something I find interesting, so everyone -> what are you reading?!

    I'm reading , At the moment 5 books, but the one I JUST started is Kira- Kira by Cynthia Kadohata. Its about these girls who are born in America but were raised with the japanese traditions and one of them gets sick or something. I'm not anywhere in the book yet. I'm on page 2. But yeah. ^.^ anyone else?

    I think it's a good topic, so I'm not going to lock it.

    I just finished with "Tokugawa Religion" and now I'm looking for a new book. My sister gave me "Spoken Here" but it sucked so I quit halfway through.

    (tip to people posting: you should make Amazon links so we can read more about the books you're reading)

    I love Animal Farm (and 1984 too). I saw Animal Farm made into a play live in Edinburgh, it was really good. I gave it 4 stars. :grin:

    This is a good topic...but I'm reading way too much. *l*

    Firstly, The Master and Margerita by Mikhail Bulgakov. It's...interesting, but I'm finding it a bit jagged at the moment. I suspect as I carry on I'll see the continuation. But I like the Philosphy in it. ^^

    Also, 1984, compared with Royal Hunt of the Sun (play) for English Lit...I enjoy them both, and I've read them before...

    And Tess of the D'urby...wotsits. I can't spell it. :P Which I'm finding...ok. I like the writing style in it.

    Finally, Language Truth and Logic by A.J.Ayer for Philosophy. This one I prefer out of all the previous ones. Because it's like a textbook- you learn, but don't realize you're learning because it's fun. *l*

    [vellum: the book of all hours] by hal duncan
    http://www.amazon.com/Vellum-Book-Hours ... F8&s=books[/url]
    it's not bad, had a really good opening, and then it started messing w/ your head, but now it's kinda fizzling out, and being a bit too incoherent. maybe it will make sense at the end, once i finish it?

    [dance dance dance] by haruki murakami
    http://www.amazon.com/Dance-Vintage...=pd_bbs_1/103-7638775-0633437?ie=UTF8&s=books
    love this guy's works, especially [kafka on the shore].

    btw: loved [animal farm], george orwell is one of my favourite authors.

    I'm currently reading Digital Fortress by Dan Brown. I'm not liking it all that much, however. I'm almost done though, but I don't know what I'll read after it.

    I recently got back into manga also, so I've been reading Death Note and Tsubasa. I much prefer Death Note over Tsubasa, but it isn't too bad. I've just finished volume three of Death Note, and volume two of Tsubasa.

    A Voyage to Arcturus by David Lindsay

    Weird, but good.


    In the poetry corner, I'm working on Baudelaire's Les Fleurs du mal.

    I'm currently re-reading Queen of the Damned by Anne Rice. The movie has next to nothing to do with the book, btw. The movie was terrible. ::bleh::
