    Yep, the classic question is back.

    I tried to find the last one, but I searched through 20 something pages and couldn't find it.

    It's time to ask again the question: What are you reading right now?

    Well, me. I finished The Time Machine. A book that I have to say it: it's great! I loved it.

    Umm, what else? I started reading Cien anos de soledad (One Hundred Years of Solitude), for my Spanish class. Yesterday I started reading another Spanish book, called Bodas de sangre, which means Bloody Weddings.

    Oh, I got my first books from the Sci-Fi Book Club. Man, what a gang!!! I payed $13.05 for 5 books, and there shipping and handling is included there. What books I got? The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings (3-in-1), The Star Wars Encyclopedia, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone and Battlefield Earth.

    Yesterday I bought the book From Star Wars to Indiana Jones. Great book! Lots of great pictures, great stories. I haven't read it, but I took a look at it.

    So that's it right now. I am reading Cien anos de soledad and Bodas de sangre (which I will finish tonight). Then I will finish Cien anos de soledad and start The Hobbit. After it, who knows? I have plenty of choices...

    So, what are you reading right now?

    Almost done with The Great War: American Front by Harry Turtledove. I'm half done with Nicolae, in the Left Behind series. I'm also half way through Shadow of the Hegemon of the infamous Ender's Game series.

    I have many other half read books lieing around. I'll update everyone when I get to them because I know you all want to know very badly what I am reading. =]

    I am reading Children of the Mind by Orson Scott Card. It's the fourth book in a series and it is one of the best series I have ever read. Very profound and believable.

    I just got done reading Caleb Carr's Angel of Darkness and Patterson's Kiss the Girls. I'm now reading Clancy's Rainbow Six. Does anyone here read anything other than scifi and fantasy?!

    Darth-Boba-Fett, I have the first book of the Conqueror's Trilogy: Conqueror's Pride. But I haven't read it. Someday I'll give it a shot.

    Well, neimoidian, I read Indiana Jones books. That's no Sci-Fi nor Fantasy, but it's Lucas related. I like mythology (sp?) books, but that's kinda fantasy. I don't know, ah, yess, I like vampire books, from Anne Rice. Hope this helps.

    I started reading Tales of the Bounty Hunters yesterday. I read the first two stories: "Therefore I Am: The Tale of IG-88" and "Payback: The Tale of Dengar." After this book, I'll read Specter of the Past and Vision of the Future, although I'll probably read Darth Maul: Shadow Hunter as soon as it comes out, placing it between those two books.

    I'm waiting for Steve Altens new book, Domain, to finally get here. And Wedge, is that Turtledove stuff any good? I've thought about buying some of them before, but i never knew if they were any good.

    Ah, good question!! Right now I am reading Dark TideII:RUIN and Jedi Apprentice: The Shattered Peace!! I just Picked up the Anthology with Tales of Bounty Hunters,Mos Eisley Cantina and Jabba's Palace, but I wont begin to read them until I catch up on The New Jedi Order series and the Jedi Apprentice books! Of course with Shadow Hunter hitting the shelves next week I'm sure I will pick it up and start to read it, although I will try and show some willpower and hold off for a while. I really hate when I am reading several different books at the same time(bad habit) I like to read one from cover to cover so I can stay focused and not have to many plot twists going on at the same time!! I wasnt sure how I was going to react to The New Jedi Order books but I have to admit I think they are great with the characters developing nicely and the children coming into thier own!! And the Yuuzhan Vong are really cool, on the down side I was a little upset over the death of Chewbacca :( but have gotten over it now. After reading Vector Prime and what happened to Chewbacca I thought I was going to dislike the TNJO books but have actually grown rather fond of them!!

    I just finished The Charm School which was awesome. Right now I'm reading Tales from the Empire which is very enjoyable, Splinter of the Mind's Eye which is good, and I'll be purchasing the new Darth Maul book on Tuesday.
