    Starting to re-read How I Live Now by Meg Rosoff, and reading a new book i bought today, which is Kissed By An Angel by Elizabeth Chandler. The next book I aim to read is Perfume by Patrick Süskind - we started studying the first chapter in English Literature class, and that basically drew me in the description is amazing, and it's brilliantly written.

    i love void trilogy so far and thought commonwealth saga was WAY better than night's dawn, which i felt was just silly for the most part. Had a few cool bits tho.

    currently reading Matter by Iain M. Banks.

    I borrowed Halo: Fall of Reach from a friend about a week ago so I would be familiar with the story before the game comes out. As it turns out, I'm on the second-to-last chapter.

    After that, I'll either pick up the rest of the series, or read some of Stephen King's work. I read Pet Sematary a while back and really enjoyed it.

    My knowledge of scientific biological transmogrifications is only outmatched by my zest for Kung-Fu treachery.

    I'm still reading The Myths of Innovation by Scott Berkun. He's tearing down all the mythological and fun stories about the big innovations and inventions of the past centuries. Newton never sat under an appletree...

    Piękno potężne (eng. Powerful beauty) by Wiktor Zin. It's book written by one polish architect about his observations and memories connected with Egyptian and Indian ancient architecture. Apart from interesting stories he did fantastic drawings with ink and charcoal of what he saw there.

    I still recommend the book to anyone but now warned them that they might need to do an effort in the 150 first pages and add that it pays to give this book a chance

    I'm an art junkie and you're my fix!

    Currently re-reading Pillars of the Earth and World Without End, both by Ken Follett. I'd say what they were about but my descriptions tend to kill a good book and these two don't deserve that injustice.

    Loved the book. if ur gonna read the next few skip The Flood its just a waste of time, its not written by the same Author, and is just pretty much takes u step by step through the first game.
    Haven't Read past Contact harvest but its defiantly a great series but i think a lot of people are gonna dismiss the books because they think their just riding the high from the games.

    http://www.amazon.com/One-Hundred-De.../dp/1570613370

    Please people never pick this book up. It is with out a doubt the worst thing iv ever read. Self proclaimed artist/writer Lynda Berry gives 17 examples of trials she has went through in her life, such as figuring out shes not a good dancer to finding out she likes to write. She even states that she dose not believe u need to try to advance your self in art/ writing.
    also she illustrates all the pages in a terrible cartoon style that absolutely destroys any credibility she has left.

    Just finished Homeland by R.A. Salvatore, and just picked up a WoW novel. I'm a bit skeptical on how it will present itself, but I have hopes.

    Also, has anyone read When You Are Engulfed in flames, by David Sedaris? From reading the back of the book it looks interesting, also a couple friends have recommended it to me.

    If I could wake up in a different place, at a different time, could I wake up as a different person?

    I'm finishing up "Outliers" by Malcolm Gladwell, then I'm on to "Good Omens" by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. I like to go back and forth between non-fiction and fiction... grows my brain and feeds my soul, in that order.

    Haven't read a lot of books, but this is definitely my favorite. The characters are just so strange it makes me look at people differently now. And it's made my dreams pretty fucking weird too hah. (I'm going to wear a blue mark on my cheek for halloween, just to see if anybody gets it lol)

    Anyone recommend what I should read next "Hard-Boiled Wonderland" or "A Wild Sheep Chase"?

    'Ayesha: The Return of She', by H. Rider Haggard.

    I just picked up my dads collection of American novelists, so I've got Theodore Dreiser, Sinclair Lewis, Jack London, John Steinbeck etc to get through. Should keep me busy for a while.
