To The Lighthouse by Virginia Woolf.

It's great fun. Clearly in the same genre as Ulysses, but I find it actually enjoyable, while Ulysses wasn't really fun until the sex part at the end.

1634: The Baltic War - 3rd in the Wheel of Fire series

A town (Grantville) from 2000 West Virginia is transplanted to 100 years war in Germany. Sounds weird but Eric Flint pulls it off. His insight into how the different eras would perceive each other and his research into the era are great. The first volume, '1632', could get you hooked.

I've just finished Best Served Cold by Joe Abercrombie, a stand-alone novel set in in the world of his First Law trilogy. I would consider his books almost on par with George R.R. Martin's, with stand-outs being the superb characterisation, excellent, almost movie-like pacing and great dialogue.

At the moment I'm struggling with The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss and finding it almost the exact opposite of everything written above yuk

The Historical Nights' Entertainment; First Series (1917) by Rafael Sabatini. A collection of short stories re-telling actual historical events dating from 1350 to 1790. One of them is the story of Marie Antoinette and the Queen's Necklace. I find them entertaining and picked up this book after reading the third and final book in the series. I'll be reading the last story tonight and expect to pick up the Second Series sometime soon. Sabatini is best known for his swashbuckling novels including "The Sea Hawk" and "Captain Blood".

Next is going to be The Mystery of the Yellow Room (1907) by Gaston Leroux. He was an early detective novel writer and this book was apparently an inspiration for Agatha Christie. Leroux is best known for his novel "The Phantom of the Opera".

I'm currently reading Shakespeare by Bill Bryson. I'm not that interested in Shakespeare, I just like anything written by Bill Bryson. His books are always interesting and very funny.

I was reading a passage today where he was talking about Tobacco. It had only been introduced to the UK quite recently in Shakespeare's day and people thought it was good for your health. Apparently boys at Eton (One of the top schools) were flogged if the teachers thought they were not smoking enough.

The Science Of Discworld 2: The Globe by Terry Pratchett and, uh, the two guys responsible for the science chapters.
Next up is I Am America (And So Can You!) by Stephen Colbert.
The last 2 things I read were The Science Of Discworld and the Dahak Trilogy (The latter of which is actually available online with the consent of the author).

The Dahak Trilogy has a few serious wallbangers and one of the most annoying character gimmicks I can remember (Oh you'll notice it when you see it), but is otherwise descent. The others are good, but probably not for everyone.

Digging through Michael Crawford's and David Whitehead's Archaic and Classical Greece has uncovered a few gems for the Agon PbP game.

Thumbing and skimming three other books helps as well. Daniel H. Garrison's Sexual Culture in Ancient Greece gives foundational sociological context. Jane Ellen Harrison's Themis is both dated and a bit nutty in a 19th Century way, but conveys a good sense of Archaic period proto-religion and magic. And Richard Buxton's Greek Mythology is a mess and really needed a better editor, but great for random bits.

I just finished "Heldenhammer" by Graham McNeill, the first part in a trilogy about Sigmar and the rise of the Empire in the Warhammer Old world.

A good read, nothing fancy really, but great fun. Could do with a bit more drama and thrilling situations though, after a twist in the beginning of the book it's not that exciting in my opinion.

I'm currently reading Turbulent Mirror by John Briggs & F. David Peat. It's a great easy read on chaos. I've read it at least three times prior to this, loaned it out multiple times. I think I'm on my third copy of the book, as it has failed to return a couple of times.

Unfortunately, I haven't had much time for reading, and I've been "reading" this one for well over a year now. Once upon a time, I would read a novel a night... cry

On the positive side, I set it down one night and started writing out the rules for my first game ~ an abstract with mechanics that loosely simulate an experiment mentioned in the book.

I could stand some more delays like that...

I've been reading alot of Buddhist text lately, but I'm starting to get the itch to read a novel again. I have two unread novels in the house right now: The Given Day by Dennis Lehane and The Renegades by T. Jefferson Parker. I'll probably read one of them next, although, I'm falling behind on reading my favorite author, Christopher Moore, so I might pick up his latest (the third in his hillarious vampire trilogy) You Suck: A Love Story.

I've just started Under The Dome, by Stephen King. I'm a bit of a fanboy so I know I'll like anything by him, but I have high hopes for this one. It's shaping up to be a grand fight between an easily identifiable "good" and "evil", much like The Stand or Desperation, my two favorites so far. Some of the characters make it obvious he's got a political axe to grind, but it doesn't bother me too much.

Irving is my favorite author, but I'm not thrilled with Twisted River. It's a good read, but not as enthralling as his earlier works were (Garp being the total masterpiece). I remember liking his penultimate novel, Until I Find You, much more than Twisted River.
Still worth it, though!

The Green Mile by Stephen King. Can't help picturing Michael Clarke Duncan in my head, but not Tom Hanks interestingly. King's not much of an artist with language, but he's a fantastic storyteller.

Fatal Revenant, by Stephen R Donaldson. The second book of the third "trilogy" (actually this one will be four books) of the Thomas Covenant series. It's a little slow so far, made even slower by my having to reach for the dictionary every second page. And the endless ethical dilemmas get a little tiring. But I find the characters and situations to have a delicious darkness lacking in a lot of fantasy.

The Second World War, by John Keegan. Apparently this isn't one of the better books of WWII history, but it's the first I've ever read, and it's approachable enough so far.

I am currently reading Seven Story Mountain by Thomas Merton. I am about halfway through and it is very rich. Merton tells the story of his life, conversion and journey to monasticism in a way that is simple yet contemplative (I suppose coming from a monk this makes sense) and it invites the reader to ask similar questions about their own journey and life--taking in the beauty and ugliness found in the world and ultimately in ourselves. A very good read that I find myself reading slower and slower to take it all in.

I am also listening to The Aeneid while I am driving. Virgil's answer to The Odyssey really rounds out a wonderful story/history of gods and men.

The next couple books on my reading list are: Henderson the Rain King by Saul Bellow and Cry, the Beloved Country by Alan Paton.

I started War and Peace probably five or six times, and always faltered around the point at which a bear dances on a windowsill. I stuck with Dostoyevsky, and read several of his works before deciding to try Tolstoy again and to finally finish War and Peace.

I read, then put it aside, and read, put it aside, but kept working through it. Remember Snoopy reading it one word a day? That's how I felt. Then I switched translations, from Constance Garnett to Rosemary Edmunds'.

What a difference. The story came alive! It touches so many aspects of what it means both to be human and to be inhuman, suffering and joy, pride, shame, love, hate. Everything, every condition of man, is in this book.

A few lessons for me: 1. The great, classic, books of the west are indeed great.
2. Great literature endures because it speaks to the inner man. Whether it be Tolstoy or Melville or Rushdie, it has something to say.
3. When dealing outside my native language, the ability of the translator matters.

Currently I`m reading The Poe Shadow by Matthew Pearl. A book about the last days of Edgar A.Poe and a Baltimore Lawyer, who gets caught up in a web of intrigue surrounding his death. He goes looking for the real Dupin in order to crack the mystery, and basically finds two who both claim to be the real Dupin. The lawyer, Quentin Clark, finds himself emeshed in sinister machinations as he tries to uncover the truth behind the demise of Edgar A Poe.
A great read so far,truly period in terms of writing an atmosphere.
Before that I`d just finished a graphic novel Bat-Man - The Long Halloween. Truly superb noir storyline and graphics.

I raced through that so I can continue my plunge into sci-fi. My first sci-fi read was Dune two months ago and thought it was great.

Now, I'm about 20 pages into Ender's Game and am looking forward to how it plays out.
