Literary members of santharia, unite!
Well...I've had the idea for this for some time and thought I might as well go ahead and free it  Roll Eyes Basically, this should work along the same lines as the 'what are you listening to?' thread, except that here you can post the book (fiction or non fiction, or perhaps even a great magazine or newspaper article ;) ) you are currently reading. So that you can, well, share your tastes with the world and maybe discover a good new book.

But I ramble: I was reading In the heart of the sea, by Nathaniel Philbrick, but I am currently revisiting Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte

Currently reading 'the woman who played with fire', which might have a different name in English. It's a Swedish book, but I'm reading the Dutch translation. My swedish is a bit rusty ;)

Next up is George R R Martin's Song of Ice and Fire, the first part. Which has been on my to-read list for AGES.

Stephen King - Everything's Eventual ... for the eighth time. I love this book. Great collection of short stories by a master horror writer.

jPod (very amusing book), Night Shift (Stephen King) and Going Postal (Terry Pratchett). Please don't ask how I expect to read them all at once. It is done.

one of the books by Lee Child about Jack Reacher. I've recently rediscovered my love of reading mystery/thriller books. :D

November! (And then we only have to wait for another two books. By the time this series finishes, at the rate it's been going, I could be through college.

@Terra Confessor by Terry Goodkind is that part of the series of the Sword of Truth or is that an entirely new book by him...I love his books.

I just finished "Without Remorse" by Tom Clancy. Great book.

I will now start to read Belgarath the Sorcerer by David Eddings.

Capher, Confessor is the last one, thank goodness.  It was starting to drag towards the end.
Belgarath is an excellent book, if only for the sarcasm.

Terry Goodkind ... he recently put out a book that was linked to those earlier ones by him ... called Rule of Nines or Law of Nines ... it was set on our Earth ... and it was a thriller all in all :D I quite enjoyed it

Have to somewhat agree with you Valan in general, you can really tell when Terry Goodkind is struggling for ideas. The writing seems to drag and not seem as... vidrant and lifelike as it does when his muse seems to speed talk to him.

The Odyssey, I have to do a school report on one of the books in it. Good read, better when aged apparently.

If you won't take my money, how about a write up?
