Tell us what your currently reading and, NO...School Text books don't count even if they're scientific in nature.

Me myself, I'm currently in the re-read phase of Robert Jordan's The Wheel of Time which is a 12 book epic adventure of three friends from a very small and remote village and are destined to defeat the Dark Lord and protect the world as they know it from ruin.

Yeah, I know. It sounds like every other epic novel out there but this book, this story, has sustance like no other except for maybe J.R.R. Tolkien.

Actually sounds really good. I should give it a try, I wonder if I can get my hand in one of those down here in Brazil.

Sadly I am not reading anything at the moment... but I will get a few books to read today.

Eldest is top of the list, I canīt put it off any longer... lol And I am also getting a couple of Shakespeare books, I want to read ALL of them, itīs mys next mission!

I'm trying to go through the High Druid of Shannara series again. Luckily, it's more enjoyable this time through. Still my least favorite though.

I have to read that too, but it's so long; it's like another Harry Potter book. I'm kind of scared to tackle it haha. I hope they all live in the end.

Really? I didnīt like Brisingr much at all. Eldest is my favorite by far. Brisingr was just so...bla.
Oh, I finished High Druid of Shannara (skipped tanequil since I couldnīt find it). Must say, I liked it a whole lot better the second time.

I'm listening to Brisingr right now and I find it to be better written than the others but also not quite the best of the three stories.

Tanequil was a very difficult read. Terry Brooks just didn't capture my attention the way he did with the others. What I'd like to do is re-read them all beginning with The Word/Void Trilogy which is set in today's time frame. Brooks says that this series is the ultimate prequel to the Shannara series. I think it'd be interesting to see how he built the story up to the original series.

On the second book in the Honor Harrington series. Has anyone read "A Song of Fire and Ice" by George RR Martin? It's my favorite series of all time. Maybe I can get a Forum here opened......... Laughing ?

No, I can't say that I've heard of the book myself though the title is tickling something in the back of my mind.

And, please feel absolutely free to start a Topic for "A Song of Fire and Ice." Get a few of your friends involved and hey, you may log on one day and find a forum created for it.
