    Reading is good for you (lulz). What are you into and what do you read? I'm into fantasy, I've read the first sword of truth novel (I think the same book could've been accomplished in 300 less pages, not reading the other ones), reading LOTR (and the hobbit) for the second time now, and when i'm done i'ma start the silmarillion (harder to read than the others) and am also reading the first Wheel of Time novel.
    also planning on reading a lot of batman comics [​IMG]

    The beach.
    I gotta read Frankenstein for school.
    Which is pretty awesome, imo.

    I've been tackling the Legend of Drizzt series but I took a break and I'm on the first book of the War of the Spider Queen series.
    I need to get back to working my way through the Xanth series and the Apprentice Adept series too....

    I just finished O.R. Melling's Chronicles of Faerie: The Hunter's Moon, but it wasn't that great, it started off lame, got more addicting then but failed at the end... uh well, next thing on my list are Tiger Eye and Shadow Touch by Marjorie M. Liu. And I absolutely need to finish Holly Black's Modern Faerie Tales Series with Ironside.

    I'm a sucker for modern Fantasy Romance.

    The Illiad by Homer (Not the cartoon character.)
    Sharp Teeth by Toby Barlow

    Both amazing books and well worth a read.

    I pretty much exclusively read manga, but i guess I read light novels too. For what people consider an "actual" book I've been trying to read Romance of the Three Kingsoms but I always end up putting it down.
