    I read that one when I was in junior high. I liked to compare the original 900AD English with the modern translation. It was like trying to read Swedish.

    In the process of finishing Storm Constantine's 'Wraeththu' trilogy. It's been pretty good, although the story's become a bit directionless in the third book.

    Just finished 'The Nameless' by Ramsey Campbell. Most of it was great, but the ending felt kinda rushed and insubstantial, like he got bored with writing it. I hate it when books end like that.

    I'm currently reading I am America (and so can you) by Stephen Colbert and I've been chewing off chapters of Howard Zinn's A People's History of the United States. Waiting on deck are The Essential Writings of Thomas Paine, Conessions by St Augustine and The Portable Henry Rollins. Yeah I'm a little behind in my reading. :lol:
