    OK, I doubt this thread will move quite as quickly as the WHAT SONG ARE YOU LISTENING TO RIGHT NOW...but I think it'd be interesting to know what your fellow Chicago Forcer is reading at the moment (with the exception of what I'm reading):


    Kitchens & Bathrooms: Planning & Remodeling by Elizabeth L. Hogan

    "Dinosaur Lives" by John Horner, and a massive coffe-table sized encyclopedia of European and Asian mythology. The latter is the first one I've seen to list Biblical names and events in the chapter on near-eastern myth.

    I believe I have the total Pratchett collection, except for maybe the latest one. "Mort" was the one that really got me hooked.

    Oh, and to keep up with the thread, I am reading "PCAT Success".

    I'm reading Cryptonomicon by Neal Stephenson. It's a brick of a book but it's really good.

    Still reading Harry Potter, about pg 240. Nightwatch, Pratchett's last book was excellent, for those that know, Vimes. I have just about every Pratchett book, including Mort: A Discworld Big Comic. Missing Nanny Ogg's Cookbook. Have the animated Wyrd Sisters and Soul Music, the first Playstation game, and several of my hardcovers signed by Pratchett. What, me an obsessed fan? :}

    I'm also reading a teen book called "Maniac McGee" cause it's the only book left in the room I'm renting (everything else's been moved to my house).

    I think Mandalorian Armor was the last P.U. book I read. Obviously it wasn't impressive enough for me to continue the series.

    EDIT: Hmmmm, earlier the comic was about Harry Potter vs. Star Wars books....pretty funny...but apparently it got yanked and replaced with the above GAMEBOY strip. (which is why it now has nothing to do with books). These guys have gotten in trouble before...but the one I linked to didn't seem irreverend at all. Wish I'd have saved it. Oh well.

    Save it! I'm blocked from Penny Acarde at work, so by the time I can check from home it might be gone again.

    Just finished Force Heretic I, and purchased Force Heretic II last night at the book signing.

    Plus going through HPP5 with my son.


    On a related note, I just put all the SW books I have out in chronological order. I have to find the rest of them. Anyway, what kind of dorkspaz does that make me?
