Never heard of that one. What's it about? I loved Moby Dick.
You're on to a winner there, Chew is fantastic. Those panels where he gets the readings... So intense and clever. And the writing... Such a vivid universe and such memorable characters... How far in are you? Are you doing it with the individual comics or the little tpbs or the big hardbacks?
Deceiving Hitler by Terry Crowdy
May pickup some Cormac McCarthy literature soon.
im in the late 20s of issues now
Wow okay you've nearly caught up with me! I hope you have access to Secret Agent **** (not sure if I should spoiler that or not).
Finished 'Dallas: 1963' which is amazing. Talk about psycho conservative HQ. Kennedy shouldn't have driven through Dallas in anything other than a Sherman tank.
Inspired by that I am now actually reading H.L. Hunt's utopian novel, "Alpaca"
Force Heretic I: Remnant
Just started A Spell for Chameleon - Not a huge fantasy fan, but it was suggested I give it a shot. Tolkien is the only thing that has ever been able to hold my interest in the genre so I'm not expecting to be on this long. The map of Florida (cesspool of all that is awful and unholy) initially turned me off, but I've been able to get past it.
I once heard an amazing public radio segment/show (This American Life probably) involving Piers Anthony and, tangentially, his books.
Plus I grew up in FL so that's been on my list forever.
Just a personal preference - its the antithesis of my preferred environment, and far too crowded for me. I've never been to the northern part though so I guess I shouldn't lump it all in together ;-)
To Hold the Crown: A Novel of the Tudors by Jean Plaidy (1/3 through and it's kind of meh. Her writing style is clunky. Wasn't too impressed with her The Queen's Secret: Catherine of Valois either).
The King, The Queen, and the Mistress: A Novelization of Season One of The Tudors (not very far in, but it's not holding my interest very well because of the constant jumping around and switching POVs.)
Still need to finish Republic Commando: Hard Contact and Lost Tribe: Pandemonium and start on Knight Errant and Fatal Alliance so I can give those two back to my friend.
just read it actually. it was cute
Finished TOR Annihilation. Not sure what to read next.
A non-Star Wars book?
I still have to finish my LOTF/MF/FOTJ read through, Les Miserables, a Bantam era read through, the original clone Wars books, the SW Marvel Omnibuses and not even sure what other unread non-Star Wars books I have to read.
Psst....there's a whole library full of non-Star Wars books!
Touche, but I meant at my house. I have both collections separate. Can't wait to get a giant bookcase and can combine everything.
Next year (hard to believe 2013 is almost over), I'm going to be doing a big reading project of my top favorite non Star Wars books at the rate of a book a day (or what I can manage to get read in a day; some of those suckers are pretty long, so they'll take me a while to finish.) Here's the list, so brace yourselves:

Coming from an OCD expert, you might want to lighten up on the planning. Cut loose, mix it up a little.
i know its a while off but be sure to give amos a close look when you get to it, eh?
No graphic novels in that list? Shame.
Just finished The Kite Runner (excellent book btw) and have moved on to Star Wars Knight Errant.
@V-2... i just read chew 30...
That's as far as I'm up to (reading the hardcovers). Kind of a bleak ending isn't it? But all those predictions have to come to something...
