another book thread!

so what is everyone reading at the moment? if youre not reading anything what's your favourite book?

im nearly finished reading 'johnny got his gun' by dalton trumbo, which is what metallica's 'one' is based on. which admittedly made me want to read the book! its a great book, so moving. its disturbing, challenging but really amazing. totally challenges your views on war. anyone else read it?

Star Wars - The Phantom Menace... just got done reading Star Wars - Cloak Of Deception and Star Wars - Shadow Hunter.  After I've finished reading this one, I'll read Star Wars - Rogue Planet and Star Wars - Outbound Flight.  Yes... I like Star Wars. :lol:
I also like Terry Pratchett's Discworld novels, Dan Brown's books... and one day I'm going to attempt to read JRR Tolkien's stuff again.

Currently reading Anne McCafferys Crystal Singer series.  I've just started book two.
Her Dragonriders of Pern series is one of my favourites, and I've always meant to get on to reding some of her other stuff.  So far this one is excellent as well.

Then I'm moving on to Fools Fate by Robin Hobb.  Which will mean I'll finally be able to cross off a series as complete.
I'm halfway through about a million of them.

I also want to read Darwins Watch by Terry Pratchett.

Forgot to mention this in my original post.

I was tempted to read this after seeing the video.  Except for the fact that what happens in the video is essentially my worst nightmare.
Coupled with the fact that I typically read in bed I think that book would give me one hell of a lot of sleepless nights.

its not as bad as you'd think. esp coming from me, i cant handle stuff like that and have a fragile mind!! its just quite haunting, its not the physical images of him that play on your mind really, just they way dalton writes how he's feeling.
