Finished up Haunted and have now moved on to Diary, also by Chuck Palahniuk.

What did you think? I enjoyed the book (much in the way one enjoys the morning after vomiting one's own guts out) but I was less than impressed by the ending and the final story.

It was really good. That man has the ability to make you feel completely horrible without doing anything overly explicit. I think the ending chapter about the writer's retreat was good, however the ending story was a bit, different. I liked it, but it just wasn't the same as every other story.

Finished up Diary, and will now read The Giver and Gathering Blue by Lois Lowry. After that I can't decide between Survivor (Chuck Palahniuk) or H2G2.

A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle. I read it when I was really young and wanted to reread it.
1491 by Charles Mann. Interesting book I have to read for my history class.

I re-read A Wrinkle In Time recently, and it was a lot different than I'd remembered. Not bad or anything, there were just a lot of things that I had absolutely no recollection of after years and years, which was a bit startling.

Currently reading: The Scar, by China Miéville, & Poe's "The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar."

Same here. It's really strange. I think I read it a little too early, but I read anything I could get my hands on.

Halfway through Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell. I wish there were another 3000 pages to read, instead of the measly 1000 she wrote. Damn. I might have to read this book again when I'm done. It's that good.

Or, I could finish reading Atlas Shrugged. I've only got... ah, 700 pages. Joy. I wish this book were 3000 pages shorter. Yeah, I know it would be -2000 pages then, but I don't let the facts get in the way of these matters.

I wish I'd remembered to put that on my favorite books list. It's the sort of book that's very well-suited for curling up with on a rainy day. She's also got a collection of short stories in the same vein, The Ladies of Grace Adieu, that you might consider checking out.

@Alibaba - I am endlessly amused by the Hitchhiker's trilogy (all five books of it), but I do not want to give you any expectations, because high expectations always ruin things.
@McCaber - Do not worry; I'd say A Song of Fire and Ice is pretty consistently strong - my only complaint is that there needs to be more, NOW.

I am currently reading my physics coursepack (groan) but then I'm moving on to Nathaniel Hawthorne's "The Birthmark," and then more Poe.

I would now like to apologize to aion7. I really should have taken your warning. Messenger was pretty bad.

Oh well, I'm reading Survivor (Chuck Palahniuk) now, and will move on to Fahrenheit 451 next.

I was at a book store and asked for recommendations from the owner. I don't remember which book he was talking about but he referred to it as "one of the two hundred books on my top ten all time favorites". :-)

I've been meaning to read something more literary (past 3 books have been Watchmen, Ender's Game, and Polysyllabic Spree), so I have chosen David Copperfield by Dickens. Wish me luck.

It's on my "to buy" list, but honestly if she wrote the phone book I would read that. I just can get enough of her writing style, it's so lush and beautiful.

I'm about 1/3 of the way into Raymond E. Feist's Silverthorn. I got the first book of the series, Magician, for the Christmas before last, and intend to finish this trilogy, and then probably most of the other series. I'm really enjoying it so far, and I found Magician to be fantastic, if a little cheesy at times.

I'm gonna finish up "World War Z" by Max Brooks and than hopefully start reading Stephen King's "Duma Key".

I've heard good things about Dune too, it's a huge series now though isn't it? Seems like it'd take a lot of work to get into.

You could check out the Favorite Herbert Book? thread for opposing opinions, but I honestly think you could read just Dune, or the first three books (Dune, Messiah of Dune, and Children of Dune) and be just fine.

I couldn't do it...I just couldn't. The pace and style of The Children of Men reminded me of 1984, which bored me half-to-death. So instead I picked up a copy of Brave New World and will be starting that. I've also ordered a copy of Simulacra & Simulation which is next on my list. Then will probably read Dante's Inferno.

I read Fahrenheit 451 in one sitting the other night, and picked up Foundation as the next thing on my Classics of Sci-Fi list. But then I found a second hand copy of Fritz Leiber's first four Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser books, so that takes priority.

Ah. I heard somewhere that most (or maybe just lots) of people who read the Commedia stop before Paradiso, with the wall of fire in purgatory being the most common stopping point. No idea of the truth of that, but it's where I stopped. Then again, I was far more interested in punishment than reward at the time...

This seems very logical, in a silly way.

Currently reading We, by Yevgeny Zamiatin. I thought I'd had it with dystopias for a while (we went through Brave New World, Walden Two, The Handmaid's Tale, Anthem and a few others in fairly quick succession in high school), but this one's strangely gripping. Lovely prose, also.

I guess I'm also still technically reading War of the Worlds, as I discovered yesterday that someone had ripped the epilogue out of the copy I got from the library. Who does that?

Hah, yes, good point. Some of the images are copied in several places, sometimes some images are only found near the same other images in the same orientation, but if you try to look for a pattern, you will go insane.

Is that any good? I read Gravity's Rainbow a while back and enjoyed it. The subject matter of this one intrigued me quite a bit, as I love the Chicago World's fair and most of the 19th century.

I always have at least 2 books on the go at once.

Currently I am reading Cyrptonomicon (Neal Stephenson) and The Road to Wigan Pier (George Orwell).

After I finish them I plan to read (in no particular order):
Dr Faustus (Thomas Mann)
Nostromo (Joseph Conrad)
Brave New World (Huxley)
Gullivers' Travels (Swift - I have read this before as a kid, but I want to read it again for the Religious methaphors which I missed)
Foundation (Asimov)

That will probably take me though until March. Then I will recompile the list!
