    Ok for snorts and giggles I figured I would start this thread and see what everyone was reading right now....There are so many books out there I would love to read but not a ton of time.....I am trying to get thru Harry Potter 4 before the movie comes out ;)

    I have Eragon sitting on my nightstand waiting patiently in line ;)

    I don't have time to read, but if I did, I'd probably be finishing up New Jedi Order and be reading Peter Garrison's "Changeling" series.

    I dont have incredible amounts of time to read either. It took me months to finish HP3 since I would read a few pages here and there and then put it down for weeks at a time LOL

    Recently finished The Unseen Queen by Troy Denning (Star Wars-Dark Nest II). I am now reading Wolf Captured by Jane Lindskold (a non-sci-fi fantasy). Of course, technically, I'm reading theforce.net forums.

    figured I would up this and see who has finished/ started what LOL

    I managed to finish the HP series... (cant wait for 7)
    Anytime anyone wants to chat about HP spoilers PM me :)

    At any rate I did finish the eldest and it was awesome! I highly recommend that series to everyone!

    now I must admit I am not a stephen king fan.....however I couldnt resist picking up "The Cell"

    It is pretty graphic for the first oh 100 pages or so... but Im hooked!
    Its a good one if anyone wants to borrow mine when Im done.
    :)

    anyone else have a good book they would like to share thoughts about?

    currently reading "the Divide"

    just started it, so too early to tell if its a winner or not. My kids actually pushed me to read it so... we'll see. Heard lots of great things about it though...

    Doc, if you like Wheel of Time by Jordan..YOU MUST read Sword of Truth Series by Terry Goodkind..WILL BLOW WOT away!

    I have read all the Harry Potter books,too..Have you SEEN the trailer?? HOLY CROW!!! Belatrix is NOT what I pictured..lol.

    LOTR is a huge favorite too...Reread Narnia again..all 7..lol. I highly recommend the Anne Rice books too...The Vampire Chronicles...Awesome!!

    JUST finished THE Cell myself Strawberry, Stephen is my FAVORITE ALL TIME:D I REALLY don' t want to talk on the cell anymore...lol. I hope to be able to go up to Maine this summer and meet him and have him autograph it for me...that would just be so wicked!! I am 7 books away from owning everythign he's ever writen:D@};-

    I actually do a lot of audio books cause of my job...I can listen to a tape/radio. So I've been reading a lot that way as of late..so the newest one I started today is called The Templar Legacy. It's about the Knights Templar, my Dad was a Mason, which I gather is related somehow, I'm just learning more about it.


    "Eragon"~~~Isn't this a movie??? A book too>>>> must read then.:D adds to list to get from library

    I have the first book in the wheel of time series, havent started it yet, but its sitting there waiting till I am done with the other ones LOL It came highly recommended from Karl so I figured why not ;)

    As far as Eragon goes - yes they are books its a trilogy, the third book is not out yet. The first two blew me away, cant wait for the third! *giggles*

    The Cell, was graphic, Im not into graphic but because I love stephen king... I stuck with it. The dark tower series my husband is reading and he loves them, I wouldnt mind picking those up but... geeesh! sooo many books on my list to read!!!! :-B

    Harry potter.. *sighs* *drools* I saw the trailer last weekend when we went to see Happy feet -Loved that movie it was cute! The trailer gave me chills and I swear I was the only one in the theater squeeling with excitement when the trailer came on! ROFL.

    July wont be here soon enough! Can we say New costume projects!!!!! [face_love]

    see dont get me started... I could post novels on this stuff LOL [face_laugh]
