I'm currently reading A Hat Full of Sky, by Terry Pratchett.  Amazingly funny author and prolific too.

Some of the best books i've read are:

G.P. Taylor - Shadowmancer
Robert Harris - Fatherland
William King - Farseer
George Orwell - 1984 & Animal Farm
Tom Clancy - SSN


ps: I can't stand Harry Pottter as Rincewind is a much more likable character :)

i can't believe it how everyone reads books :|
i got tired of HP after finishing half of the third :-/
and i read it because i had to read a book for school, not because of intrest... i wanted to change from the 100-page-long books i usually take...

it is such a waste of time... i prefer doing nothing than reading :|

RE: Do you read books ?
I've done a olot of readin this year.Thats probably got to do with the fact that it took me 3 and a half years to read The Lord of the Rings (yes that was cover to cover) and starting soon on The Hobbit also the amount of reading that I have to do for my university course. Add to the fact that I am doing a lot of art to (see the link in my sig)...leave me no time to read really.

Books I have read so far are:

Micheal Criton's Timeline (and the film was true to the book)
Mary Hoffman's Stravaganza triology (i think there is another book coming out...not sure)
The Lovely Bones
Some Occuaptional Therapy crap (i.e. stuff for my university course)
All the Harry Potter ones to date (Had order of the phoenix finished in 2 days after its release (a))
Many others that I know I've read, just can't remember them

I'll be away from home when Harry Potter comes out so I'll be about 3 weeks behind everyone else :'(. Also i am in the process of re writting a fanfic series. The end is perfected (i know how the character dies....bit peculuar actually) just need to write the build up to it.

Traxor has told me that these books are really good, but i myself haven't read any. Im not really a  big reader myself but i have read a few books but mostof them were books that had to be read for school work. I must say the only set of books i have actually read are point blanc and other books by anthony horowitcz (not sure how to spell his name) but i have found these books are really interesting if your into action/thriller.

Hum.. reading.. ehh.. well most of my reading is on the internet, forums, news, tech stuff.. other than that and school work. i dont read much.. im a person who cannot sit down at one place.. I always gotta be moving, that's probably why I don't like reading..

The whole set is called the Alex Rider Series, btw. :wink:

RE: Do you read books ?
I love reading, im a great escapist, sometimes when im eating, or just in my room chilling people can be calling my name for ages, and i wont hear because in my mind I have created a world and i am just living in that world. So when I read, I like creating the world within my mind, and seeing how it all happens, so to me, reading is better then watching films or TV because your imagination is free to run wild and you are able to interpret the words in whatever way you feel.

The Harry Potter films annoyed me because my imagination has now been influenced by the film and so when I create the Harry Potter world in my mind's eye, it is influenced by what i see from the Harry Potter films.
