I was just curious what books people are reading. Currently, I'm reading two books. Sometimes a Great Notion by Ken Kesey, that's for my english class. And I'm trying to get started on Bernard Lewis' Middle East: a Brief History of the Last 2,000. Also, please recommend good reads. Mack

I was reading a zoology textbook for fun, but I think my cats stole it... Apparently don't want me understanding their anatomy.

By the pricking of my thumb, something wicked this way comes. I wish I still read things... I don't have time to read, though.

Tom Clancy's Op-Center, Acts Of War. By Tom Clancy and Steve Pieczenic. I'm reading the dutch version. It's about some terrorist organisation in the middle east, and difficult technical devices in the earth's atmosphere that monitor everything everywhere. A sensation/action technothriller. Just for fun. About 300 pages. A good recommendation would be THE SUDDEN SKY, by B. Michelaard. A very very good and beautiful story about war, love, fighting against the facism of the world. It's a WWII novel, published in 1974, again i'm reading the dutch version (416 pages, bound, Times New Roman 9) If youre a bit of a sci-fi lover/trekkie (you have to be, for this kind of reading), get STAR TREK, NEW EARTH. Book one of six. WAGON TRAIN TO THE STARS. By Diane Carey. new earth concept by diane carey and john ordover. It's in the Kirk time. I read the english version, and still have 5 books to go. It's about pioneers, settlers, that go into space and find there new planet. There is a federation ship that has orders to escort them through the unkown parts of space. Terrorists lurking, mishap burning. It begins nice, and dramatically. And you wont have to look onto the stupid make-up of the startrek motion-screen. These things are better kept in books. Although I wouldn't miss the movies and series on tv/theater:p!

I'm reading... The Path of Daggers, Wheel of Time series, by Robert Jordan The series is alright, although I really hate the extremly biased and sexist women in it, men do not cause every problem damnit!

I'm quite frankly impressed that this many people actually read. Bravo!
