    Mine is hard to pick, you know 'cos I read so many, But I think the closest is 'way of the kings' by Brandon Sanderson

    Be careful, it's a big book.

    I'm guessing that the lack of answers means that people don't read books anymore?

    Are you retarded or are you just plain stupid?
    Do you expect people to answer so quickly?

    No, but you can INFER that people are too busy gaming (remember, this is a GAMING site) to read nowadays.

    On that note, my favourite book is the Alcatraz Smedry Series.

    He's new and impatient, give him time. He'll learn, perhaps the hard way, but he'll learn.

    As a single book, mine would have to be Temple by Matthew Reilly. I would choose a book form my favourite series but I cant really choose a single book thats better.

    Thanks,
    I'm a bit of a book guru, "all things English" guy, and Matthew Reilly writes some pretty high-octane stuff

    I noticed you were Australian so I thought you may have read his stuff. I am much the same. I certainly love me some literature.

    Also, I would advise you to stop double posting on the forums. Just edit the previous post as it keeps the forum cleaner.

    Im with Zorua. Stop double posting, there is an "edit" option right next to the "quote" option on YOUR posts.

    Okay guys, I think we have made our point. How about we try and steer this topic back to what he originally wanted to talk about.
    One thing I noticed about your favourite book Sethevere is that it uses a cover style that has recently come into fashion. The white background with flowing colours (not too sure on how to describe it) was popularised by Brent Weeks in his debut novels, the Night Angel Trilogy. It was very visually striking and as such, most of his book sales were triggered by the cover catching peoples eye in the store. I highly recommend you give them a read if you are into dark/adult fantasy.

    Huh? This is not a forum when you have to update us as too what is going on, minute by minute. If you dont reply straight away, its not a major worry for us. We will just assume you are doing something else and will come back later.

    You don't have to say what you're doing right now, Sethevere. But you can talk about it in the Blog Articles. [​IMG]
    On-Topic: Favorite Book? Don't have one, since I always read manga.
