A few months ago I was reading The Masked Rider. Excellent book. Now I'm reading Ghost Rider. I'm a little over halfway through.

Voracious reader of: Tom Clancy, Ludlum, Ann Rule, that Douglas guy from the FBI profiling section, Necromancer series, and oh so many more.

ooh- isn't that the one that picks up where Valhalla Rising left off? With Dirk Jr.?
Also, the Bourne series by Ludlum is one of my all time favorites.

I've nearly finished 'The Hidden City' (Part 3 of the Tamuli) by David Eddings

Is that any good Slaine?

I read the Belgariad and the Mallorean years ago, but never made it back to Eddings after that. I got caught up in Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series, and haven't read any more fantasy since that (apart from regular returns to LOTR).

I'm just finishing Garden of Beasts by Jeffrey Deaver. Very interesting.

I'm also currently reading this

I Blame Society - Rich Hall

A great book which makes even more sense if you've seen Rich Hall do the Otis Lee show live (which I've been lucky enough to do twice).

Yes. Dirk Jr. and Summer (Dirk Sr.'s daughter and Dirk Jr.'s twin) ((That sounds like some soap opera ad!!)) laugh.gif




Wilbur Smith is one of my all time favorites. I can't believe I forgot him!

Pauline Gedge-Alberta author who writes some fabulous Egyptian novels.

I just finished reading "How to Lose Friends and Alienate People." It's a memoir by British journalist Toby Young, about his experiences at Vanity Fair. It's really great.

Yes, both the Elenium and the Tamuli are well worth reading.  Although there are a lot of similarities to the Belgariad/Elenium, I foun them to be a more restrained and mature cycle.

The main complaint I hacve about the Belgariad is that the character of Silk is very over done and much too over the top.  However, in the Elenium, Silk's characteristics are spread among two or three characters, making them more well rounded.

Add to this that the world created is better thought out and seems to ahdere better to its own internal logic.

Let's bring this thread back, because literature is important.

Right now I'm reading 1984 by George Orwell...

On the side, I am also reading the Rush tourbooks...

Strangely enough, I'm also reading an Isaac Asimov book. This one is non-fiction and titled "A Choice of Catastrophes". Although it is non-fiction, there is plenty of Asimov's characteristic wit and good hard science.

Huck...I loved that book...Koontz is one of my all-time favorite writers.  And, this one has a character with autism, which peaked my interest even more.  Let us know what you think when you're done.

Will do GG, I'm only up to chapter 3, I'll let you know but it may take me some time.

I find it hard to find the time to read as much as I would like, usually when I go to bed or in the Men's room  laugh.gif
