    Right now I'm on book 3 of the Harry Potter series. So far it's pretty fantastic and I can't believe I've waited this long to start on them.

    I'm also currently reading a book on Julius Caesar by Adrian Goldsworthy. Caesar was definitely a man before his time and so far i'm enjoying it immensely.

    What are the rest of you reading?

    I'm reading through Judith Tarr's The Hound and The Falcon trilogy for the umpteenth time, because they are that fantastic. I'm also reading Matthew Pearl's The Dante Club, which is fun. I like the tone of the story. I'm poking through Nightmares and Dreamscapes and The Talisman as well.

    I remember when the Dante Club came out, I heard a bunch of really good reviews about it. It sounds like a good summer read.

    Yeah, it's good to while away an afternoon with. Nothing heavy-hitting or too deep, but fun.

    I just finished the Star Wars EU novel Exile. I don't have the next one in the series, so I am thinking of tackling Dostoevsky's Notes From the Underground. However, given that that school semester is nearly over, and my brain is nearly fried, I may look for some lighter reading, perhaps some of Jim Butcher's Dresden Files stuff.

    I'm listening to CELL on my commute as well. But it's the first time through for me. I kept meaning to start it, but then put it aside for three other books first, most recently AMERICAN GODS by Neil Gaiman, CARRIE by SK, and HEART-SHAPED BOX by Joe Hill.

    Earlier I enjoyed LISEY'S STORY as well.

    I'm dying to get to Heart-Shaped box and the new Chuck Palahniuk book. I'll probably go buy both sometime next weekend.

    I finished Cell a couple of days ago, definitely not one of my favorites.

    I'm hoping to finally start the A Song of Ice and Fire series this weekend.

    American Gods is the best book ever.

    Without giving anything away, the ending of CELL makes me angry enough to punch a baby.

    I agree with the ending of CELL


    I am finally over halfway through Weaveworld by Clive Barker. I read it while I'm riding the exercise bike!

    The Thief of Always by Clive Barker ranks up there as one of my all time favorite books. But oddly, it's the only book of his i've ever read.

    I really need to read more of Clive Barker's stuff. I am a big fan, but I just haven't read much of his stuff. Though I know it is different than most of his stuff, The Thief of Always is one of my favorite books. I read it over and over until I let someone borrow it and then they moved out of state without giving it back. I need to get a new copy.

    Erin, it would seem that we are on the same wave-length, as usual.

    Today I received the ARC of Blaze, so I'll be reading it for the next two weeks for sure.
    On the other hand I'm currently with "Swam song", by Robert McCammon.

    It is a sort of children's book/fable, but scary and adult at the same time. I guess you could call it A children's book for adults, much like Neil Gaiman's Coraline.

    This is from Wikipedia:

    It tells the story of a young boy named Harvey Swick, who is bored out of his mind in the dreary grey month of February and is swept away to the magical Holiday House by a strange, goblin-like man named Rictus. Here is where all his dreams can come true; and all his nightmares can haunt him. There he meets other characters, including a trio of cats (Blue Cat, Clue Cat and Stew Cat), Jive, Carna, Marr, Mrs. Griffin, Lulu, Wendell Hamilton the III, and Mr. Hood.

    I would recommend Imajica by Clive Barker... it is the best I have read.
    The problem with Barker is it takes awhile to get "into" the book. Once you're in there, it's hard to put down.

    It's supposed to be a kid's book, but has more than enough for adults to enjoy it. It's about a little boy who is bored to death with his life and he magically enters this place called the Holiday House, where all his dreams come true. He can eat whatever he wants, the seasons rotate daily, so everyday is Christmas, ect.. Then he realizes the evil lurking underneath the daydream and the rest of the story follows him trying to escape the clutches of the house.

    It's really great.

    We-ell, I'm reading two books. One is Bag of Bones, and the other is The Kabbalah, which is translations of the first three books of the ZHR (Zohar, Book of Splendor).
