I finished Just After Sunset by Stephen King - my favorite story was the last one about 2 feuding neighbors and one lures the other to an abandoned construction site and forces him at gunpoint into a sheet metal reinforced portable toilet and then pushes it over onto the door.
So now I'm reading a book that's been lying around the house for a long time - Life: A User's Manual by Georges Perec.

I'm currently re-reading "Dead In The Family" by Charlaine Harris, book #10 in the Southern Vampire Mysteries/True Blood series.

Seeing as it was 1-2 years ago I read all the books last, I figured it was time to read the whole series again before reading book #11 for the first time. It's also given me something to do while waiting for the Season 4 premiere of True Blood! :D

Currently, Im on the Dune Books. I read them once before long ago. But after watching the two series again, I had a hankering to reread them. Im on the Heretics of Dune so far.

I'm reading Under the Dome by Stephen King. It's the hardcover and has like a thousand pages. I can't read it lying down because it crushes my diaphragm.

I just finished A Dance With Dragons. Storm of Swords is the best of the series so far though.

Edit: Just noticed the date on this posting. Hopefully you're working on ADWD now!

i just finished American Gods by Neil Gaiman (very good, as is everything else i've read by him so far) and i just started the Lord of the Rings trilogy by J.R.R. Tolkien.
also - and i hesitate to say it because i haven't picked it up in a month - i'm reading The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield, but i really don't like it, and am only making an effort to get through it because my mother gave it to me.

Honestly, nothing. I've just read Eragon, but I had to return it before I had finished the last fifty pages. It doesn't really matter. It was kinda boring. I mostly just read old WITCH magazines at the moment.

I was recently reading but I finished it. It was "The Beautiful Between" I forget the author. I checked it out from my library. Very good book. Very sad at the end. I teared up. You can really relate to almost all of the characters. I recommend it to every person in the world. Haha, really though a brilliant book.

Adobe Dreamweaver CS5 Digital Classroom, and IC3 Study Guide for my classes. (Guh. I know much of this stuff already.)

...I was getting ready to read Blood and Gold by Anne Rice before I moved here. It's my mom's copy.

I am suffering through another one of my mother's "must reads". Naturally, it is a series of books, each one stupider than the last. This one is Miss Julia paints the town. Suffice it to say that Miss Julia is an idiot, a living relic of the south of the early 1900's. Only four more to go when I finally, finally finish this one. I'm like ten pages from the end, yet I haven't read any in like three days. Does that tell you anything about how good it is?

I'm reading A Short History of Nearly Everything, though I'm currently taking a bit of a break. I like that it is a history of science beginning from the fundamentals of physics and working its way to the life sciences, but I think it is a bit too fluffy and written for those who are unfamiliar with science. Coming from reading Phantoms in the Brain, a book packed full of scientific fact and very well-paced (I can't praise this book enough; it is an excellent introduction to neuroscience), A Short History is kind of boring. I'm mostly interested in the scientific discoveries and how they fit in to the world of science in their day, but there are an awful lot of detours to look at the personal lives of the scientists being discussed. In any case, I do plan to finish the book, I'm just taking a break to wash my brain of unnecessary details. :P

Heh, I'm reading it now. It's okay ...but for some reason, I like it less than the others. So I'm reading it quite slowly. There's also the problem that when I'm done it, I either have to restart the series (because there's tons I missed, I'm sure, and I don't want it to end!) or I have to wait for possibly years before Martin releases the 6th novel.

How'd you like Feast? I kept hearing it was really disappointing, but I loved it! The Brienne chapters were great, as were the Cersei and Jamie chapters. I think I actually liked not hearing much from the main ensemble - it was refreshing. I'd say Feast was my second favourite of the bunch so far, next to Storm. Storm is just amazing. . .

Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins.

What's funny is that my English class has a person reading each book in the series right now for required reading. Someone else is reading Hunger Games and another person is reading Mockingjay. :P

Finished Miss Julia Paints the Town, finally. I'm on to the next one, Miss Julia Delivers the Goods. So far this one is actually good. Keeping my fingers crossed it stays that way.

I'm finishing up Blood Meridian by Cormac McCarthy (one of my favorite authors) and also starting the Sandman Series by Neil Gaiman (again, one of my favorite authors; although the Sandman Series are graphic novels, so I don't know if that counts as a "book" per se). I'll be moving on the Song of Fire and Ice series as soon as I finish both of those.
