    What are you currently reading?

    I am trying to get back into reading. I was currently reading "Shelter's of Stone" from the Earth Children Series... I was at the library looking for a new book to read and it took awhile for me to decide on something. I thought it would be helpful to all those who are bookworms (or in my case "trying to be") out there to list what they are currently reading so that those who are looking for a new book to read can look at the thread and gets some ideas, whatcha think?

    This book for some reason jumped out at me...I will give it a try.

    Re: What are you currently reading?

    I just finished reading The Founding. It was quite good. Now I have to read The Hot Zone for school. It's not a bad book, but it's basically a cross between a research paper and a story. It's interesting, but it has it's low points.

    Re: What are you currently reading?

    Actual book? Just finished the Hobbit. Felt like re-reading it after re-reading the Silmarillion, something Tolkien, but fun and easy.

    I also just finished the Johnny the Homicidal Maniac graphic novel, so not a "read" as such.

    Now I have no idea what to read!

    I want to read Taiko, but my copy is a big hard back which isn't suitable for travelling (I read on the move a lot). I'll find something.

    "Demon Lord of Karanda" by David Eddings, 3rd book in The Mallorean. I like this series, but seems a little slow in places, but tbh that doesn't bother me fun read

    Wilt, by Tom Sharpe. Absolutely hilarious (Plus, its about 30 years old. Gives a really different perspective on the UK.)

    Currently devouring "Dune." Previously devoured the complete stories of "Kull: Exile of Atlantis," (though I didn't finish through the unfinished drafts parts...I sadly like my swords and sorcery shorts to have a conclusion to them...though the Kull stories are really good in my opinion).

    Re: What are you currently reading?

    Just finished Fallen Angels by Mike Lee, really good addition to the HH series IMO.

    Likely start Bones of the Hills/Lords of the Bow (can't remember which is book 2) in Conn Iggulden's Genghis Kahn trilogy (historical fiction).
