We've got "listening to", "playing", "eating/drinking", "wearing" and "carrying in your pockets"... this seemed like the next obvious step.

Currently reading "Playing the Moldovans at tennis", by a guy who took up a bet that he couldn't track down all 11 members of the Moldovan football team and beat them at tennis.
(Yes, of course alcohol was involved)

I am currently reading Guns, Germs, and Steel by Jared Diamond and Catcher in the Rye by J. D. Salinger.



Back from non-activity, what more do you want?

I'm trying to read the Silmarillion (or however you spell it) but starting it is hard.

I'm currently reading Rurouni Kenshin vol 22. And, since I went into town, and had time to kill while the car was having its exhaust changed, I bought a Devil May Cry 3 manga to read while having a coffee.

I just finished the Naruto manga earlier. I am caught up on the manga and the anime now. I can't wait for the new ones. I am so eager to see what's going to happen. A lot of people being killed off recently. A lot of action.

Right now I am reading Beastly by Alex Flinn.

I love Alex Flinn. She wrote my favorite book, Breathing Underwater, and Nothing to Lose was really good, too.

I just finished "Where have all the bullets gone?" by Spike Milligan, and have moved on to "Mussolini: His part in my downfall", also by Spike Milligan.

Oh god yes. It's made all the harder by the fact that the characters change every five lines.

Right now I'm reading Carpe Jugulum by Terry Pratchett... Which I've been reading for the past year since I'm easily distracted.

How can there possibly be a new Fowl Series book without me knowing about it?! I HATE living in the middle of nowhere!:cuss:
---
As for me, I've just finished reading 2001: A Space Odyssey, and 2010: Odyssey Two. I'm very satisfied with them (despite the fact that they don't agree with each other plotwise) and am currently devouring 2061: Odyssey 3. I'd love it if I could find 3001: Odyssey 4, but those are so rare I doubt I'll ever see one.

Just got done Alex Flinn's Beastly. Good, but not as good as I had hoped.

Ah! Just saw the Artemis Fowl reference. Man I need to get caught up. I think Opal Deception was the last one I read. I think I just need to go and reread them. Great series.

I read 2001 back when I was a student in the 70s and loved it. It suddenly made everything I'd seen in the film and not really understood so much clearer. I read 2010 and 2061 maybe about 10 years ago and wanted to read 3001 but never came across it. I hadn't realised it's hard to get hold of. That would account for it.

And I'm currently not reading anything. I've finished the books I was on and, because I'm a bit short on funds, I decided to wait and buy something to take on holiday with me in a couple of weeks time. If I get something now, I'll have finished it by then. And the local library doesn't have anything I'm interested in that I haven't already read.

Oh god I just can't resist especially if it's about books!
I am reading Expect Resistance by CrimethInc. but I am almost entirely sick of it. Anarchy is such a tiring philosophy.
