    I highly recommend "N.C. Wyeth: A Biography" by David Michaelis. It's my second time through it after just scanning the good parts. Lots of interesting art stuff about his life and work, Howard Pyle, and his son Andrew.

    I borrowed some sci-fi book in English from library to learn some new words (not my first language).
    It's "Blood Moon" by Sharman DiVono. The story is sort of mix between crime story and near-future space sci-fi. The style of writing is very simple but I'm fine with that beacause I can understand most of the stuff .

    I am currently reading Dracula by Bram Stoker; I've wanted to read it for quite some time (not to jump on the over-cliche'd vampire bandwagon or anything...), and just recently bought a copy.

    I also plan to read The Davinci Code and Angels and Demons... but definitely not one right after the other!

    I'm a fan of religious fiction (Christian) and have just begun to pursue books of that nature, so does anybody have any suggestions that fall into that genre?

    I just picked up a Chinese novel called Wolf Moon, about wolves and rural life in Inner Mongolia. Looks like a good read.

    Also: the first issue of Viking with fantastic art by Nic Klein!

    "The Most Dangerous Animal" by David Livingstone Smith
    I think this passage will give you the idea...
    Re: Einstein's 1932 speech to the League of Nations-
    "Einstein's choice of topic was consistent both with his social conscience and with the broad mission of the League of Nations: he wanted to discuss the problem of war. Instead of approaching a fellow physicist or a statesman, political scientist, or a military historian, Einstein turned to the elderly Sigmund Freud, asking him to address what he described as "the most insistent of all the problems civilizations face."
    This is the problem: Is there any way of delivering mankind from the menace of war? It is common knowledge that, with the advance of modern science, this issue has come to mean a matter of life and death for civilization as we know it; nevertheless, for all the zeal displayed, every attempt at its solution has ended in a lamentable breakdown."

    Marco Polo by Laurence Bergreen. fascinating look at life and times of marco polo drawn from his biography and other sources. journeying through exotic lands filled with interesting religious, sexual, and cultural practices. if you like epic fantasy read this, only it's mostly factual.

    Iain Banks "The Algebraist". The book defines a sci fi universe and weaves characters into the stage it sets beautifully.

    I keep meaning to continue reading the series, but I always start something else instead of Messiah. I just ordered Dan Abnett's Eisenhorn omnibus. I've been on a bit of a Warhammer groove lately.
