    I just finished reading a book on John Adams as well as American Sphinx, a book about Thomas Jefferson. Conclusion, I like Adams much better than Jefferson. They were both amazing men though with incredible intellects. I am now reading Founding Fathers (I am on a early American kick) as well as Will Durant's book Christ to Caesar. The latter is about the history of the Roman Empire. I also just wrapped up the latest book in the Series of Unfortunate Events book series, though those books go so fast they hardly count. I love to read, and I love history books.

    For art books I recently bought Rembrandt: The Painter at Work. It was pretty interesting. It has some great reproductions in it as well.

    On the list to read:

    Cryptonomicon - Stephenson
    Quicksilver - Stephenson
    Truman - McCullough
    Eisenhower - Ambrose
    Heroes of History - Durant
    The Ultimate Hitchhikers Guide - Adams

    Cool topic.

    in my backback i have il principe by macchiavelli
    entertainment wise, i just re-read r.a. salvatore's legacy of the drow series (yeah, cheesy fantasy all the way!)

    umm... its kind of strange right now, only two books im reading. usually, its at least three books im reading at a time (well, not simultaneously, you get the point).

    anyone have some good fantasy literature hints for me? english language preferred. :chug:

    Currently I am reading:
    Deepsix by Jack McDevitt

    The book so far is pretty good (only about a quarter of the way through.) Recently, I have been reading many books. Some good, others bad. This one has been one of the not so good ones.

    An amazing book I finished last night was:
    The New Madrid Run by Michael Reisig
    I am really into the post apocalyptic/ending of the world books. I really enjoy reading about the fallout and how people live/stirve/survive.

    A series I have almost finished (they did not have the last book) is the Fire-us series:
    Fire-us by Nancy Butcher
    Although not my favorite series, it was an enjoyable one. The book is aimed toward the less hardcore science fiction readers, and I found it to be a little under my level. Even with that, it had an interesting turn of events.

    And to top it off, my favorite series read recently:
    Tommorow When the War Began by John Marsden (Marsden's Series)
    This series of books told an AMAZING story of a group of teenagers that find a race of people taking over their home town in Australia while they were away partying in the woods. I really, really reccomend this series.

    I finished Dean Koontz's "Odd Thomas" A couple of weeks ago. Good book. But almost all his books rock.

    Also just finished H.P.Lovecraft's short story "Dreams in the witch-house" Love H.P.'s stuff. He's hard to read some times but he writes very eerie stories.

    Ahh, McDevitt. I like his stuff. If you like Deepsix, you'll love Chindi

    The Neutronium Alchemist - Second book in the nights Dawn trilogy by Peter F Hamilton. Lots of sci-fi goodness (And lots of stuff I'd like to draw. Mabey in 5 or 6 years i'll have the required madskills )
    The Subtle Knife - Second book in the His Dark Materials trilogy by Philip Pullman. It is also rocking my socks.

    I'm just about done with The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown. Next I'll be reading A Game of Thrones by George RR Martin. On the side I'm trying to read two books by Harold Speed, The Practice and Science of Drawing and Oil Painting Techniques and Metarials.
