So for those of you who are reading a novel tell us what it is. Right now I'm reading Tess Gerritsen's: Bloodstream. All of her books are medical suspense which is my favourite genre.

Steven King recommends her novels and so do I. They're a non-stop enjoyment if you like this kind of reading.

Tess lives in the chilly U.S. state of Maine.

I got some pictures of the novels I have from her so far. If you get the chance please pick up one of her books because she's an author you won't want to dismis. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

I'm reading Red Dwarf - Infinity Welcomes Careful Travellers for the third time. It is hillarious! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif I highly recommend the Red Dwarf novels. They are just as good as the TV show.

It's too bad we didn't start that book club idea. That Da Vinci Code book is pretty popular where I live.

I wonder if I can get a copy yet. I hope to read it after Bloodstream.

Btw tlr, have you read moby dick before? I think it's a must have book... but rather cumbersome if travelling. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

Currently finishing up with the Myst Trilogy. You guys have to read these books! Sad yet very close to what happened to every ancient Empire.

I would also recommend Pegasus in Space and Silver Wolf Black Falcon. Wonderful books http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif .

I'm half way through loads of books at the moment:

Doctor Who, The Clockwise Man - by Justin Richards.
Northern Lights - by Phillip Pullman.
Silverfin - by Charlie Higson.

About to start:

Sabriel - by Garth Nix.

Recently read:

The Creature In The Case - by Garth Nix.
Three other short stories by various authors.

I'm Also reading "Doctor Who, Monsters and Villians" by Justin Richards, but that's a sort of guide book rather than a novel.

:D

Yay, I love Myst. I only have and read the first book though, it's beautiful. I look forward to get the others soon enough. Catapharact, if you are a Myst fan you should see this page about the original game proposal (http://tinselman.typepad.com/tinselman/2005/06/myst_game_desig.html). A treat! :D

Currently I'm reading non-fiction "Those unschooled minds: home-educated children grow up" by Julie Webb.

I finished the Da Vinci a few days ago, it took me forever. I have been really busy though lately but i will say that its a remarkable book. Excellent choice after about 7 years of reading a book.

What do you suggest i read next?

I was going to start that Angels and Demons but i changed my mind.

I'm currently reading 'The Universe In A Nutshell'
By Stephen Hawking

http://images.google.co.in/images?q=tbn:NUjhYhDPh0MJ:http://franklots.dyndns.org/Elements/picts/theuniverseinanutshell.jpg

Also, A quaver full of arrows by Jefferey Archer

I liked Angels and Demons a lot
I read Deception point which wasnt so great I feel. I thought there was something wrong with Tollands view of the bioluminescents.


PS: I think Angels and demons is a good choice Sparky. I personally liked it a lot...maybe slightly better than Da Vinci. So maybe you should get your hands on that one.

I'm reading 'City of the Dead' by SD Perry, which is basically RE2, so yeah, I like the 'official' stuff like movie books and things.

Has anyone ever read the Orson Scott Card series 'Ender's game?' or something like that? I'm considering getting those.
