    I usually take time off from gaming/work to dust off my book shelf and read for the next month or so. I've been reading a manga this week I picked up in a used book store "Mushishi" anyone that reads manga heard of it? It had an anime so it must have been popular back when it was released. It's about a wanderer in a fictional ancient japan whos some what like a shaman and gets rid of "mushi" which are like demons/spirits whatever occult like stuff. ANYWAY what has everyone else been reading? Novels or Comics?

    I've cut back on my reading for the past few months. Currently reading some fantasy book called 'Wizard's First Rule'. I haven't gotten in to it much yet, as I've other distractions irl.

    I have a pile of books and manga after that I have to get through. Hopefully I'll be able to pick up my reading more in the coming months. [​IMG]

    Artemis Fowl: Time Paradox - Great book! Can't wait for "The Atlantis Complex".

    The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy - Reading it again.

    Storm: Infinity Code
    - Didn't really like the book.

    I, Robot - Not the movie. I enjoyed it. Good book by Issac.

    And Another Thing - Loved it! Didn't think Eoin would do it that well!

    I hope you don't read all those at once, that would make me pretty confused and all the stories would merge together in some weird way in my memory [​IMG]

    Wheel of Time is a good series of books. I've read them all so far. It's a pity the author passed away before he could see his work completed. [​IMG]
    Another author is finishing off the last three books from Robert Jordan's notes.

    I've had to read To Kill a Mockingbird for English class the past few months. I'm about half way in and I'm loving it so far.
