    I finished a week ago 'Herge, son of Tintin'. It's a biography about the author of the Belgian Tintin comics which I start to respect more since I read his biography. Recommended for comic artists of all kind.

    Now I'm reading Goscinny's biography, a very talented comedian. After that, I will finally read 'The Hobbit'. And yes, I can also recommend 'The picture of Dorian Gray'.

    One of the best fantasy series I've ever read! I also recommend to read Elantris - great book. Actually, I can sincerely recommand any of Sanderson's books!

    Anyway, I've just finished Flow My Tears, the Policeman Said by Philip K. Dick and star reading Herbert's Dune

    Just finished reading The Stranger by Albert Camus, and currently going through Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse. It is such a wonderful book.

    After that it's back to Haruki Murakami for a while. :{D

    I'm enjoying The Supervillain Handbook by "King Oblivion PhD" at the minute. The physical book isn't out for a week or so, but you can get the ebook or just keep your eyes out. Quite funny, very well written.

    Is anyone on goodreads? I find it pretty hand for recommendations.

    I'm on Goodreads. I haven't discovered anything too amazing through the recommendations, and I really need a way to tell it to only recommend books with a rating of 3.8 or higher. The lists people make on there are often a good bet, though.

    Started reading metro 2033 by Dmitry Glukhovsky and so far im really enjoying it although the russian names sometimes get confusing.
    If your a post-apocalyptic fan I really recommend it especially if your a fan of the metro 2033 game.

    After many recommendations, I finally bit the bullet and started reading Ayn Rand's "Atlas Shrugged." About a quarter of the way into it now, and thus far it is surprisingly entertaining - I was worried I might have to battle through an utterly dull brick of a book, and I don't particularly like fiction to begin with. But so far so good: dem capitalists are saving the world, amidst howls of protests from ungrateful commies. :-)
