    Well, I just got notification that: Confessor: Chainfire Trilogy, Part 3 (Sword Of Truth, Book 11), by Terry Goodkind has shipped, so I'll be reading that as soon as it arrives. Probably wind-up tearing through it in a week, much to the detriment of other things that should be done.

    I just picked up A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin - I have had several people tell me the series is quite good and it actually has been very enjoyable so far.

    I prefer it a good deal more than Mountains of the Moon actually - Chris & Bob you may want to check it out.

    '20th Century Ghosts' by Joe Hill. Great collection of short stories. I hadn't realised this guy was Stephen King's son until quite recently...

    The Hyperion books are some of my favorite sci fi novels of all time... the follow up pair, Endymion and Rise of Endymion are very good as well. And the Golden Compass series :bowdown:

    Right now I am reading No Country for Old Men

    Right now I'm not reading anything, but during the last 3 weeks I've read:

    "Siege of Heaven" by Tom Harper

    A book that takes place at the end of the first crusade. Really interesting, and a nice story.

    "The Children of Húrin" by Tolkien

    I was really surprised by this one as I expected it to be more like the Silmarillion, but it was a really exciting story and not just a long list of names like Silmarillion.

    "The Cry of the Icemark" by Stuart Hill

    Another fantasy book, which, while being a bit clichéd, has a good plot. I read it in about a day. :)

    "The Innocent Man" by John Grisham

    A book about the justice system gone terribly wrong. It's just unbelievable that something like this has happened. This book really shows the worst parts of the capital punishment.

    The Power That Preserves - Stephen Donaldson

    By far the best Fantasy trilogy I've ever read (I've read LOTR, Earthsea, the keys to paradise, the wheel of time, etc.)

    I really want to get the second trilogy of Donaldson's now, before I finish this one, But I'm so into I'll probably have it finished by tomorrow morning. :D
