Hmmmm....*glances at bookshelf. Yeah, do that with a Kindle.
First task is to finish off reading Freedom by Johnathan Franzen. I'm about halfway through at the moment and while it's all been bloody brilliant, the length of it is starting to drag slightly.
Apart from that I also have...
For Whom The Bell Tolls - Ernest Hemingway
White Noise - Don Delillo
The Adventures Of Huckleberry Fin - Mark Twain
Robinson Crusoe - Daniel Defoe The Handmaid's Tale - Margaret Atwood
Brighton Rock - Graham Greene
I also have Ulysses by James Joyce sitting there but...quite frankly the prospect scares me. Hopefully by September I'll have read all of the above!
Awesome book, but quite depressing. It was one of the books I felt most uncomfartable reading because the dystopia created was beyond my imagination. Maybe not the best book to read when you are not feeling well yourself. A very great read though. Interesting and awesome as I said. I really liked it!
Finish Les Miserables, Victor Hugo
Read some James Joyce.
Read more Dickens (probably David Copperfield and Nicholas Nickleby)
Finish my complete works of Jane Austen (Northanger Abbey, Mansfield Park, Lady Susan, plus maybe re-reading Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility).
Read some more Murakami
The books I'm hoping to read:
- The Fault in Our Stars (third time heh) ^-^
- Looking for Alaska
- Paper Towns
- The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
- Book Thief
- LOTR trilogy
And there's other which I are sat in the back of my bookcase which I haven't bothered to read until now. n_n
The whole hitchhikers guide to the galaxy ( complete trilogy in 5 parts )
A brief history of time
Does god play dice
Alex's adventures in numberland
The cosmic onion
Was einstein right?
How to teach quantum mechanics to your dog
The elegant universe
The zombie autopsies
Pride, prejudice and zombies
As many Horus Heresy books as possible
A lot I know but I do have a four month holiday

Wanting to get back into reading but not sure what to read...
So far on my list is only The Book Thief, which will take me two weeks at most.
If anyone could suggest a series or something for me to take a look at I'd be grateful.
I tend to enjoy books like:
A song of Fire and Ice series
Lord Of The Rings
Mostly dark fantasy fiction that is riddled with twists and turns. It keeps me interested.
My book list (up until now):
- Alias Grace - Margaret Atwood
- The Great Gatsby - F. Scott Fitzgerald
- The Garden Party (and other short stories) - Katherine Mansfield
- Birdsong - Sebastian Faulks
- Possession - A.S. Byatt
- The Unconsoled - Kazuo Ishiguro
- Sylvia's Lovers - Elizabeth Gaskell
- The Complete Ghost Stories - M.R. James
