    I'm makeing my way through the Lord of the Rings. I'm such a huge fan and I love the books and movies but, man, those books take FOREVER to get through. Befor that I was reading Star by Star again.

    The Silmarillion takes me longer to get through than LotR. LotR = about 3 days. Silmarillion: 8 days.

    Silmarillion has a lot of details so it takes time for events, characters and crazy Tolkienish thingies to sink in. That is why the reading lasts longer than with most of the books.

    I'm reading Jedi Academy 3: Champions of the Force.

    It's not non-stop. I think my quickest ever bookread was Goblet of Fire in 280 minutes. I'm quick. I read for about 3 hours per day, when I read, so it took me about nine hours to read LotR.

    If you can get through a book that quickly then you eally can read fast. My brother can read fast and he cant even get through a book that fast. Wow. Just wow.

    I've read Harry Potter 1 and 2 in two days... I think I was reading them for 8-10 hours a day. Although, they ain't that challeging. :D

    Overall I can read a 300 page book in 2-3 days if it's interesting. :)

    Anyhow, back on topic... I'm reading a Starcraft book. I'm not expecting much since I've just started, but who knows... Amazon reviews were good. :)

    That's true. Potter books are not much compared to some other lit I've read, but they really are readable. I've read the Half-Blood Prince in a day and a half.

    James Joyce's Ulysses is impossible. It took me about an hour to read 15 pages. I gave up.

    :p

    Crime and Punishment was hard too, but then, it was translated from Russian, so I had difficulty trying to keep up with all the little familiarisations of names and such.

    I'm going to start Balzac's La Peau De Chagrin. I don't know what's the English translation, Polish is something like Reptile or Lizard.

    Again I say, Crime and Punishment is a great book. Well, I love 19th century novels in general.


    EDIT: I've just found out the English title of La Peau De Chargin is The Wild-Ass's Skin. Er... funny.
