    davi, you kidder. Lol.
    gekitsu - the first book I mention here...:

    Recently finished China Mieville's Perdido Street Station. I'm not usually into fantasy, but that guy's imagination and colorful style blew my mind. Wanted to check out Stephen Baxter (hard science) afterwards. Read Time (of the Manifold series). That book read like dry cardboard compared to Mieville.

    C.J. Cherryh has written about how Fritz Lieber's works has influenced her writing. Found it interesting since I greatly enjoy her sf-stuff. So I got ahold of the Lieber compilation The First Book of Lankhmar and have read the first three stories of that book (The Snow Women, The Unholy Grail, Ill Met in Langhmar). It's ok. It has a bit of a been there, done that-feeling to it, but that's probably because of all the people who came after - not what came before. So what's next? Maybe it's time for at comic. Uhm, let's say Shutterbug Follies by Jason Little. Then Red Thunder by John Varley, Explorer by C.J. Cherryh. Hey, maybe some non-genre stuff will turn up, who knows.

    As for non-fiction: Don Seegmiller's Digital Character Design & Painting. Plakatens Mester (book on danish poster-artist Sven Brash). Chip Kidd by Véronique Vienne. And finally Chris Ware's The Acme Novelty Datebook. That is one cool book I tell'ya.

    "Tangled Webs" the second book in the Daughter of the Drow series by Elaine Cunningham. Darn good reads.

    Why am I in this handbasket, and where am I going?

    I just finished The Wastelands, the 3rd book in Stephen King's The Dark Tower series. I'm going to start Wizard and Glass soon. Their the only books that a english recommended to me and I liked. Some parts are corny. Like when Roland goes rambling about "Have you forgotten the face of your father?!"

    Bill Bryson's A Short History of Nearly Everything. But then I got some video games, Simpsons Hit & Run and Elder Scrolls 3: Morrowind, so I haven't been reading my book lately. *Slaps wrists*

    Haha Cyber, I'm the same way. I get distracted at home, and don't read much. I catch up on my reading in study hall and on the bus.

    Study Hall? The bus? The best time to read is during math or science class when the teacher is blathering on, baby! Maybe this is why I don't have such high grades, and my teachers dont like me much...

    Dan Milligan doesn't seem to be reading much: "Being one who’s always looked at reading as a bit of a fad, and thus a slow and poor reader, advantage Tyboogie." (from http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...threadid=15284 )
    ... and just just look at his stuff!
    I gotta stop reading now and just draw, draw, draw.
