hah aha. yeah. now i want to say his buddy was named Strider, but that was Aragorn's name in LOTR. But i do remember his hunter buddy ends up marrying the girl anyway and it turns out they are a prince and a princess.

i always thought it was funny though that the the main druid the book must have had a drinking problem at some point in his life since his name was Allanon!!  (AL-ANON) LOL

Now I have finished the god delusions (it was absolutely brilliant, and really puts religion into perspective), I am going on to read "The Last Templar" for the second time, this book is recommended by me and my great uncle, one of the master of the free masons and a official, modern day knights Templar. It is a great novel, based mostly on fact about the original knight’s templar.

Almost anything Lloyd Alexander is excellent reading (i.e. Gypsy Ritzka, The Iron Ring, The Rope Trick, The Arcadians, to name a few).

Velvet Elvis has come highly recommended to me, but I haven't been able to get a copy.  My only knowledge of Rob Bell is from the Nooma videos.

Yeah, it's kinda like a loooong much more insightful and wonderful Nooma video =) Rob Bell is great, so if you like the way he is in the videos, his book is like a written version of them.

When I first saw "Nooma" the first thing that popped into my mind was the Numa Numa videos. *smacks head*

Has anyone read The DaVinci Code by Dan Brown? It was really good, but the movie apparently didn't do so well.

I've gone on to Book 8: A Path of Daggers. Getting closer to the overall end (until the next book is written, of course)

Yes, I love The Da Vinci Code, I have read it about 4 times all together I think, that is the hard back and the soft back version, hard back is best. I think I have probably watched the movie about a million times as well.

I have just started reading a new book about Amy Lyon (otherwise known as Emma Hamilton), called England's Mistress by Kate Williams.

Ah, the Da Vinci Code. While a fine example of what would be a great nonfiction piece, Dan Brown went and turned it into a novel. There are soo many things about the structure that irritated me-- the main character being introduced by waking up, the wooden "as you know Bob" dialog, the fact that neither of the main characters ever stops to eat or acknowledge normal bodily functions... ack. But hey. It was an easy read.

My TBR pile is about 2 feet high now (I only wish I was kidding) because I've been so busy editing. There are some I have gotten around to, though:

The Dreamwalker's Child (Steve Voake): This book had the coolest first five chapters ever. But around page 200, it started petering off and I ended up putting it down. I hate it when books do that.
Storky: How I Lost my Nickname and Won the Girl (Debra Garfinkle): Awesome, awesome, awesome! This is the fourth time I've read this and it's still hilarious.
Finding Your Voice (Les Edgerton): As a writer, my bookcase is lined with how-to manuals for grammar, writer's block, how to get and agent/editor/publisher, etc., and Finding Your Voice is one of three on my always-out shelf. It's funny and charming and holds nothing back, which I love.


So, there ya go!
