    Re: Reading

    wheel of time by robert jordan fills all the book'ing I need. by the time a new one comes out, or I take a break from reading, I've forgotten what's happened so I gotta read all the books again in sequence. I always find something new in it too. I never got into manga, though I can read japanese (well used to, I never use it anymore so I've started to forget all my words, though I guess I can cheat and just read the kanji for meaning now!)

    I've never ever gotten into or understood so called classical literature, any of that stuff we had to read in high school, any forms of poems, and the like. I also can't stand a lot of academia works now, I just end up saying it's too 画蛇添足, painting snakes feet >_> i think it's just me getting burned out though.

    Re: Reading

    The Raven is an excellent poem and I don't usually like poems. E.A. Poe just has a way with words, I suppose.
    I have read nearly all the Vampire Chronicles by Anne Rice. Queen of the Damned is my all time favorite. Mostly because it covers the back story of Maharet (which is my favorite Character in all the books).
    I'm also an avid fan of Jaqueline Carey's Kushiel series of books, including the new Naamah books.

    wheel of Time is my all-time favorite fantasy series.
    I read all the time. Aside from fantasy, Im a diehard H.G. wells fan. He's my literary hero.
    And I read a lot of nonfiction. Metaphyscis, paranormal, and pagan stuff most of the time.

    Re: Reading

    Currently re-re-re-reading the Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follet - Brilliant book that i bought at a jumble sale in about 1992, i read it at least once a year!
    Other than that, Elizabeth Moon's Paksenarion books also get a regular airing.
    Laurel K Hamiltons Anita Blake series as well ( got my wife into them, and started while i was in hospital, took me 5 days to get to book 10, which had been released at that point)
    Terry Pratchets Discworld Novels too

    most of my books had to get rehomed though last year as we moved house a few times and lugging over 300 books around isn't all that easy!

    Re: Reading

    My favorite books are (I can't actually put them in any order):

    Silverlock, by John Myers Myers

    The Worm Ouroborus (+ the unfinished trilogy Mistress of Mistresses, Fish Dinner in Memison, and The Mezentian Gate) by E. R. Eddison

    The Gormenghast triology (Titus Groan, Gormenghast, and Titus Alone) by Mervyn Peake

    The Lord of the Rings, by... everybody knows who that's by.

    My favorite poem is Four Quartets by T. S. Eliot:

    ...Garlic and sapphires in the mud
    Clot the bedded axle-tree.
    The thrilling wire in the blood
    Sings below inveterate scars
    Appeasing long forgotten wars.
    The dance along the artery
    The circulation of the lymph
    Are figured in the drift of stars
    Ascend to summer in the tree
    We move above the moving tree
    In light upon the figured leaf
    And hear upon the sodden floor
    Below, the boarhound and the boar
    Pursue their pattern as before
    But reconciled among the stars....
    Those who have suffered understand suffering and therefore extend their hand.

    I can't do everything, but I can do something.

    Re: Reading

    My favorite book is by far Dune by Frank Herbert, I also enjoy the rest of the original series. Most of the stuff I enjoy reading in my spare time is Sci-Fi, though I can be a bit picky about it.

    I used to read some manga when I was younger, my favorite was Ranma 1/2. I still occasionally read comics as well, my favorite comic series is The Maxx.

    I'm currently reading Speaker of the Dead by Orson Scott Card. Its the second book in the Ender's series.
