(Doesn't necessarily have to be books, can be magazines or cartoons for that matter).

Me, yet another one of those Grail books. I have just started so I don't have an opinion of it yet.

I just finished [ame=http://www.amazon.com/Amazing-Adventures-Kavalier-Clay/dp/0312282990/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1/102-3910386-5718561?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1189802647&sr=8-1]The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay[/ame], by Michael Chabon. It won the Pulitzer Prize, and I definitely understand why. I love his writing; he's just so good with language.

Looking At Totem Poles, by Hillary Stewart. Explains the dying cultural identities of the native poles and the stories they tell. 110 poles from the British Columbian and Alaskan Native tribes.

and

Augustine Rodin - Drawings & Watercolors ...Only a few essays accompanying hundreds of his illustrations. Not much of a read, more of a a collection of a sculptors studies, visions, and expressions translated to paper.
Honey, I\'m just trying to make some sense outta me.

A selection of short crime stories, "Wer stiehlt schon Unterschenkel?" (Who would steal lower legs?) by Gerd Prokop, a German author. My parents kept telling me how much they enjoyed it when they were younger, and it is quite entertaining.

Before that: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows, and Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell by Susannah Clarke. And after that: Send My Cold Bones Home by Tristan Hughes.

Call me the hopeless romantic of the easy read:  Nicholas Sparks  The Choice.
I read it this weekend, and although not an intellectual book by any means, it is a romantic tear-jerker with a surprising end.

Ice Station by Matthew Reilly. It would be just another die hard type movie, but hey, if it's done right it would be entertaining at the least.'Water for Elephants' by Sara Gruen.and'7th Heaven' by James PattersonSure - they're both good books.

Darkmans by Nicola Barker

It took about 200 pages to really get into it (it's a thick book), but now I'm really enjoying it.
