I'm juggling between books, as usual...

Reading Evelina by Fanny Burney (it's related to my thesis), re-reading Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez, and working my way through Culture Counts by Roger Scruton.

I'm starting to get the feeling, when I go into a library or bookshop, that I have read most of the books on offer!

Re-reading Gunter Grass's "The Tin Drum" because it's OMG AMAZING or something along those lines. But really, I adore it...and Oskar Matzerath.

Real book-wise, I'm reading The Book Thief by Markus Zusack, and The Darkangel by Meredith Ann Pierce.

Manga-wise, I'm reading volume 2 of Rave Master by Hiro Mashima.

At bedtime, for light reading, Fellowship of the Ring. For the millionth time. My serious reading at the minute is The History of Western Music, not sure if that counts though...

I bought Les Misérables on a whim when I was in Waterstones today, I guess I was in the mood for 1200 page French literature Seems to be very, very good so far, though I've only read the first 50 pages or so. I'm also re-reading Return of the Native, but that's revision for my English Lit exam this wednesday :eek:

The Lord of the Rings - The Two Towers. Third, maybe fourth time?

The Selfish Gene.
Unweaving the Rainbow.

Both by Richard Dawkins.
Yes I know he's not as great and visionary as the epic titles of his books suggest, but I like his writing style and agree with many of the points he makes. I accept that they've been made before though, as well.

I always like to mix up high fantasy with non-fiction.

The Night Watch by Sergei Lukyanenko

Quite good, although I'm only reading it because if I do my girlfriend will read the A Song of Ice and Fire series, which I love.
