What book are you reading right now??

Postby The_Captain » Sat Jul 22, 2006 4:45 pm

We've been asked what movies we've seen and music we're listening to but I was not able to find a thread about what book/piece of literature we were reading at the moment.

That being said I just got back to reading books so I'm currently reading...

"Fear Nothing" by Dean Koontz

Koontz is one of my favorite authors and I've read many of his books.

So, what are you reading right now?

I remember reading that back in Jr. High - pretty good book. I know they made it into a movie with Timothy Hutton I believe.....

I'm reading Eldest by Christopher Paolini. It is the second book in the Inheritance Series by Paolini. It's a lot like the Lord of the Rings trilogy, and an easier read, too (even though it is quite long). Highly recommended ;-D


O, the first book is Eragon, and you have to read that one first.

The Broker, John Grisham

Almost half way and It's better than I expected going into it.

I had to read The Chosen last year for school. Pretty good, although it seems like it could be much shorter than what it is. Some of my personal favorite books are the Harry Potter books (I've only read 1-4, but I plan on reading 5 and 6 soon, and then 7 whenever it comes out) and Holes.

I'm reading Dune, so far I don't see what all the hype was about.

Er...with my family out of town for the past 2 months, I've had lots of reading time. I've read Knife of Dreams by Robert Jordan, and now I'm going through the Harry Potter series...again. I'm finishing up the 4th book, about to start #5.

Yes I read Harry Potter. :-D

I have heard many great things about the Potter books but have never read any of them.....
