Which book are you currently reading? post #1  quote:



You can come back in here as you move on to a new book... but, I thought it would be fun to just see what books we all read.

I am currently rereading the third Harry Potter book - Prisoner of Azkaban.
Not only do I love the HP books... but I want to reread this one before the movie comes out.

It has to be old though, because it talked about the last 3 books like when he wrote it the 5th book hadn't been written yet... When I looked at it in the store it looked like it had a nice layout, a little fun and informative

But when I read that intro, it was a little lame... I'll read it later, when I've totally run out of things to read.

so far, it's AWESOME! I can't put it down. Brown's a great writer, really knowledgeable. I recommend reading Angels and Demons first though. They talk about it in the Da Vinci Code.

I'm reading a great history novel by a Finnish author Mika Waltari, "Dark Side of the Rainbow"... it's about Middle Age/Reneisscance (spelling??) era and in it a Finnish man travels the Europe, while Turks are attacking and withces are being burned... It seems good although I barely started it. Waltari's novel "Dark Angel" is wonderful - it's about the fall of the Konstantinopolis/Istanbole. A really, really good and picturesque novel.

What's that about? Is it written the same way the other two are? I may be interested...

Dhampir (Part Vampire. Part Human. Perfect Hunter.)

By Barb & J.C. Hendee

I've had this book for over a year, and read it once. They just came out with the next book, so I'm rereading this one before I start the second book.

Magiere has earned a reputation as the most formidable vampire slayer in the land. Villagers far and wide welcome her with both awe and disdain, grateful to her for ridding their towns of the undead menace, but finding themselves made poorer for their salvation. Magiere has always known she's dealing with simple folk who only wish to have their superstitions silences, and she's never seen anything wrong with exploiting them for profit.

Now, tired of the game, Magiere and her partner, the half-elf Leesil, are ready to hang up their weapons and settle down in a place they can finally call home. But their newfound peace will not last. For Magiere has come to the attention of a trio of powerful and dangerous vampires who recognize her true identity - and who fear the birthright that flows through her veins. And they will stop at nothing to keep Magiere from fulfilling her destiny...

I'm now reading "Thief of Lives" which is the sequel to Dhampir.
This started out a little slow for me, and I was concerned that it wouldn't hold up to the original for me. But, I got into it and was mildly surprised. I'm about 1/4 through, and I like it. They threw in a surprise that I didn't even think would happen, and it's made the direction of the book interesting for me.

I just finished reading a Star Wars trilogy, by Timothy Zahn, that takes place 5 years after The Return of the Jedi.

1. Heir to the Empire
2. Dark Force Rising
3. The Last Command

They were all 3 really good books, and I found myself not wanting to put them down.
I am currently looking to see if there's any continuation to these particular stories.

Hi Anomaly, I've read that one. It's not a bad book, though no where near his best. But it's got a good and interesting story (by the end, at least) Besides, it's pretty short...

currently reading... <u>Scarlett:The sequel to Margret Mitchell's Gone with the Wind</u> So far, so good! LOVE this. Alexancra Riply is a great writer though after reading a few of her books, it starts to get old.... cliches, cliches... *sigh* but this is the best yet among her other books.
