Um... I think since my last post it's just been The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas and The Emerald City of Oz by L. Frank Baum.

Reading A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin right now. Then probably going to continue with the rest of the series. At least finish the second book before the second season of the show starts.

we have a topic like this?!

Naked Lunch by William S. Burroughs

it was pretty awesome... but a little lofty of an artistic statement.

Finished A Game of Thrones. Really, really good stuff. And now I get things that kind of went over my head when watching the show. Waiting for A Clash of Kings to come in for me at the library but I think everyone is reading this series right now because it is taking forever.

Also finished Scott Pilgrim. It was alright, liked it about as much as I expected I would. Mostly wanted to read it because I've heard so many good things and wanted to see what the big deal was. The art is nice and it's pretty amusing and does have some really awesome moments, but the majority of characters are jerks or otherwise unlikable. I guess that's the point, but it was kind of annoying.

Drizzt is pretty awesome. I really have to go back and re-read through it all and into the stuff that's been out since I last read those books.

I'm currently working my way through the Ravnica Cycle of MTG books, and the last one I read was Guildpact. Dissension is next!

Gotham Central Book 2: Jokers and Mad Men.

If you have the slightest interest in Batman read this series.

I'm reading it all for the first time. Book IX of the republish Legend of Drizzt stuff is the last one I read. I'm not entirely blown away yet.

Reading Canticle by R.A. Salvatore now. Almost already better than some of the Drizzt stuff I've read.

Canticle's really good too, yeah. I read them all during high school (they were in my high school library, of all places), then bought the big 5-in-1 book. Good stuff.

I think this is also a topic that needs pinning...

Since last time I posted...

Read A Feast For Crows and I'm on A Dance With Dragons now. After this I'll be all caught up and be able to go look at the discussion and speculation. Sad that I'll have nothing else to read of this series until the next book is released, and there's no telling when that will be, considering George R.R. Martin's track record with getting these books out it's probably going to be quite a wait....

Read the first two books in the Temeraire series, His Majesty's Dragon and A Throne of Jade. First one was fun, second one was slow until the end. Not sure if I'm going to continue the series. Probably eventually. Especially if Peter Jackson does turn it into a movie/mini series, which he's talked about...

Read Tik-Tok of Oz and Scarecrow of Oz, and I'm now reading Rinkitink in Oz. Nearing the last of Baum's original Oz books. Not sure if I'm going to continue on to the rest of the Famous Forty after that or not...

Comics-wise, I'm getting caught up on Fables and finally finishing The Sandman right now. Also read Batwoman recently and it was really really amazing, and did everything right. Need to find more like that...

I agree with the pinning-ness.

I did finish Canticle. It was great. I'd have finish In Sylvan Nights, but I stopped for a final exam.
