I just finished(literally, like a minute ago) A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court by Mark Twain. It was so good, so good, highly recommend it.

It's not human blood, so I guess it's vegetarian?

I suppose it's more like refusing to eat red meat. And any man who refuses red meat is a pussy by default.

I have 5 boxes full of books stuffed somewhere on the attic that I've read. I really should get a bookcase or something. Reading Special Topics in Calamity Physics right now. Really good book, enjoying it a lot.

Yeah, I could go into my Edward-Cullen-Sucks rant, but I don't really feel like it right now. In a nutshell he has no personality and is too darn perfect, the end.

Finishing up Les Miserables right now. It's been taking me a while...Long book and some of the parts were a little drug out, but the barricade chapters were fantastic. I've read and reread Enjolras' death scene I don't know how many times. I've still got a ways to go yet, but I'm not rushing it...this book is one to be thoroughly enjoyed.

After that I plan to read...ba-babaBAAAAAA...Inferno! I've actually wanted to since last summer and I just bought the book in April. Woo!

As have I, the Sharpe series that is. After I finish the Grail Quest series I'm going to start the Starbuck Chronicles next.

I recently (6 months ago) finished the Cave of the Clan Bear series.

Its basically about a little girl who gets separated from her family via earthquake and gets adopted by a wandering tribe. Oh yeah, and it's in the cave-man era.

I found it really interesting, but it might be a turn off for non-dedicated readers, seeing as the books are ginormous.

I just finished "When You Are Engulfed in Flames" and I'm halfway through "Naked", both by David Sedaris. I don't know why they were in 'essays' they're clearly memoirs. I guess he didn't want to compete with Augusten Burroughs. Anyway, fucking hilarious.

I like the Halo novels (except Battle Harvest), with my favorites being Fall of Reach and Ghosts of Onyx. Eric Nylund is a sci-fi beast.

I'm on the fourth in the "Song of Ice and Fire" series, wcich is A Feast for Crows. I'm very annoyed with the overall lack of Jon Snow, Tyrion, and not too much Daeneris though.

Reading "King Dork", so far a good book.

It's about a kid who hates "Catcher In The Rye", but all this mysterious shit happens when he finds his Dad's copy of the book.

I'd recommend it.

Read World War Z last week.

I liked the part where the Russians forgot about the Cold War... or something.

Just finished the Metamorphosis, and I'm now reading A World Lit Only By Fire.

First section of the book, and its discussion of the rise of Christianity and the fall of paganism was interesting, to the say the least.

Where to start?

Sword of Truth Series, Terry Goodkind
Very good series, starts of slow ends very heavy, and does a very good representation of the evils of communism. Can't say how many times I've read through these.

Rhapsody Trilogy, Elizabeth Haydon
Another good Fantasy series, and also related to both Terry Goodkind and Wheel of Time. I've read it a few times.

Harry Potter
Duh.

I've read tons of other books, but those are the ones that really stand out. I be a fan of fantasy novels, and a bit of Romance, though you won't ever catch me reading Twilight.
