Well we have afew topics with similar names in other places but not books. This might help give the book section some attention :)


Anywa, I've just got done reading Angles and Demons and I've got to say WoW. That was a great book to read. Very well done and I was not expecting several things to happen in the book. Must read if you havn't read it yet :)


Next I'm going to try and finish the Dark Tower Series...

Currently reading Trickster's Choice by Tamora Pierce. She's one of my favorite authors. After I finish this one, gonna read the 2nd (and final) book in the series, Trickster Queen.

I read Angels and Demons a couple years back. The whole mystery and puzzle were pretty good, but I felt that the characters were a bit flat. Plus, I dislike how Dan Brown likes to pass off all this stuff he made up as historical fact. I did some research on the Illuminati after reading it, hardly anything he says about them, their members, things they left behind, etc in the book is based on historical evidence.

Anyway, I'm currently reading House of Leaves for my Interactive Fiction class. It's weird...

;-) The Series NANA. At the library i go to i had read most of the anime books there and manga so when my mom went i asked her if they had any new ones to check them out for me. Sense i don't read Shojo Beat books very much i held off reading them. but once i read NANA i was hooked. Great book.

I'm currently reading Rocket Boys/October Sky, so far it's a nice book and a great story.

Tango read that, and we watched the movie in engineering class in 8th grade.

Yup yup, starting on Lord of the Rings. But do you think I should start with The Hobbit, first?

Reading Into the Wild for school. It's... not fun.

Couldn't hurt, but it's not really neccessary to understand LotR.

Yeah, reading The Hobbit before the rest of the series doesn't really give you any incredible, absolutely necessary information (although I love some of the riddles in it!), it's more of a just-so-you-know-how-it-started sorta book.

I've read The Hobbit twice, once in 3rd grade and once in 6th grade. In 6th grade, I also played Nori the dwarf in our school's production of The Hobbit. This year, incoming 9th graders have two choices for summer reading (haha, we didn't have to do any summer reading last year, I mock them). One of the choices is The Hobbit.

It's a good book. I'd read it not just to kinda look at their world, but because it's a good book.

It is good. The pacing is very different than LotR though, just so you know.

Been reading the Night Angel trilogy recently, and I'm finding the series amazing.

Finished Through the Eyes of a Raptor and am now reading Ender's Game. Awesome book.

Recently finished both The Law of Nines and Warbreaker. Both are good.
