    I finished "7 Tattoos" by Peter Trachtenburg a few weeks ago and am in the midst of finishing "Slaughterhouse Five" by Kurt Vonnegut. Need to pick up a few more of his books this weekend.

    Jack McDevitt

    Just finished Deepsix by Jack McDevitt. Scifi book. I read 4 of his books, Engines of God, Chindi, & Omega, between semesters. Really good stuff.

    Soon I'm going to start reading my next book in the Peter O'Brain series the movie Master and Commander was based on.

    It's been a while sence I read a book, but I really like Stephen King's work. "The Stand" is awesome !!!! The Dark Tower series are very good also. Duglas Adams writes some crazy stuff.

    Just finished Angels and Demons (Dan Brown), that was really good, I thought even better than The DaVinci Code. Almost done with the 4th Dark Tower book "Wizard and Glass", the series actually seems to be getting better.


    Just finished re-reading all of the Larry Niven "Ringworld" books last month, great series as well.

    I finished The Testament, by Grisham, Black Wind, by Clive Cussler, and The Charm School, can't remember the author though, Douglas something I believe. Read all these over Christmas break. Grisham definately deserves all the hype his books get.

    I read all 10 volumes of "The Wheel of Time" a while back and it burned me out on reading for a while. Robort Jordan rocks hard.

    23 volumes of the "Berserk" Manga by Kentaro Miura

    Th 2 volumes of the "FLCL" Manga by Gainax

    Before that, Anee Rice's Vampire stuff

    Somewhere in there - "The Book Of Shadows" by James Reese. GO HERMAPHRODITES!

    Also - "Abhorsen Trilogy" by Garth Nix

    The book I'm about to finish is worthy of a total post hijack...

    R.J. are you listening?

    UNINTENED CONSEQUENCES by John Ross. www.john-ross.net

    History, gun rights, history of our shrinking gun rights, a novel, oh man. It is a page turner!

    I'm not sure if Oxymoron is the right word but what is it when someone won't listen to anything but the propaganda they spew? :D

    Wheel of Time killed me, read the first 4 (maybe 5) and I was burned, have the next few volumes but just can't make myself pick them back up.

    Wheel of Time

    I started reading the series around the late '90s because there were 2 or 3 books out. I figured I would be able to read the whole series without any waiting for the next book to come out. Boy was I wrong, waiting on... what is it now #11 I think.

    I'm currently reading the Foundation series by Isaac Asimov. I had read the first book halfway through about 5 times and this time I said I'm gonna do it. Just finished the first one (Foundation) and am about 1/4 through the 2nd book (Foundation and Empire).
