Other than textbooks, the last book I read for pleasure was the complete volume of Chronicles of Narnia.  

I love Sci-Fi/Fantasy and am a HUGE fan of Piers Anthony!  

Ahhh!   I just love to read!

I am currently (finally!) reading the final Harry Potter book ....

i warn you, before you finish reading the last HP, that book is TOTAL crap. i enjoyed the other six, specially 4-5-6, realizing though that JK rowling is not a good writer. but the 7th book has lots of flaws, specially the stupid, boring end. i wont spoil it for you, but i cant sincerely believe any person in his/her right state of mind liked that end. the rest of the book seems to have vanished of the better writing that had appeared on the previous book, the half-blood prince. i think that those were my worst-spent $15 in this lifetime.


Just finished that last Harry Potter. I liked it. Liked the ending as well.

And i read the entire chronicles of Narnia years ago. So, i was really surprised they turned it in to a movie.

I usually dont read much anymore lately. Used to read the books about The COCK (and his partner DICK Vledder....no joke, they are named like that).
Its a police/detective series and it all happenes in Amsterdam. Thats the kinda stuff i read.......it relaxes and in no way litteral.

Just finished Sex, Drugs and Cocoa Puffs.  Prior to that I plowed through about half a dozen Bukowski books.  Just started a book called Born Fighting, which is a history of how Scots-Irish immigrants actually won the Revolutionary War for us.  I have a short stack waiting for my semester to end that includes, Cormac McCarthy, Julian Rubinstein, Carson McCullers, and William Least Heat Moon.

give me a Terry Pratchett book any day.  Have read nearly all the discworld books and have just finished 'Monstrous Regiment' which was good and have started 'Going Postal'.  His best book by far IMO is 'Mort'

I haven't read it in a while, but Chronicles Vol 1 by Bob Dylan was a great book.

PS. Raindogs23, is your avatar from when Mike Vernon beat the crap out of Patrick Roy?

Well, yes it is.  But I'm an Av's fan, so I see it the other way around.  I have the Red Wings DVD box set that has that entire game on it.  That period was insane.  I want to say 180 penalty minutes dished out that period.

It looked like Roy got some good hits in, but Vernon came out on top in the end.  Roy's face was pretty beat up after that.

My brother got my Atlas Shrugged as a gift for getting into Pharmacy School. I'm extremely intrigued.  Anyone read it?

Right now I'm reading Michael Chabon's The Yiddish Policemen's Union. It's very good so far. I went to see Mr. Chabon read/speak at Barnes and Noble a couple of weeks ago and he seems like such an interesting guy. I also loved his Pulitzer Prize-winning novel The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay.
