We used to have a What Book Are You Currently Reading/Last Read -thread around here, but I guess it died long ago. So I thought a new one might be nice :D

Well, I'm currently reading Zahir by Paulo Coelho. I got it from my mom for christmas.

I actually started reading the 1st harry potter book a few months ago. Got to about chapter 9, but stopped. Havent picked it up since. But when i was reading it i anjoyed it and planned to read the whole series. Maybe i might start reading it again.

Allthough seein the films allready its kind of spoils it, as i know what is going to happen.

Currently reading:

The Fifth Elephant by Terry Pratchett
Thud! by Terry Pratchett
Animal Farm by George Orwell
1984 by George Orwell
David Copperfield by Charles Dickens
Silas Marner by George Eliot, though I think I'll drop it 'cause it's boring my living daylights out.
Artemis Fowl: The Eternity Code by Eoin Colfer
Assassin's Apprentice by Robin Hobb, or at least trying to read it at the same time as my sis.

I browse-read Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, just to get the gist, but it held my attention even less than the last book. But JK's at the stage where she thinks everything she writes turns to gold, so I'll humour her and try to read it properly some time.

Good idea,Kamrusepas :)

I don't know if I post the name of the books in portuguese or in english...but I think one of them I'll post only in Portuguese,because I'm not a translator and I don't know the best way of keeping the title's meaning.

Ampersand,I just don't resist making a little marketing on HPHBP: It's superb!Just forget the magical thingies...IMO is a story on love,on how love can be destructive and cruel,how it can kill you and pierce your soul!It's about the terror that lies behind beauty,it's about seeing the other as a meaningful Other and fear the feelings that may arouse you!

I love the Artemis Fowl series. Very funny. Assassin's Apprentice sounds interesting. What's it about? I highly recommend you read Half-Blood Prince. Not her best work but very surprising, that is, if you didn't already read the last few chappies.

Laraismyrolemodel:Currently Reading: Angels and Demons

I LOVE that book. It's AWESOME!!

I am currently reading the first Cirque du Freak by Darren Shan. It's alright.
I last read the fourth Series of Unfortunate Events: The Miserable Mill by Lemony Snicket. It was pretty good.
Next I will read either Memoirs of a Geisha or Story Time by Edward Bloor. I also recently finnished Scorpia by Anthony Horowitz. It's an Alex Rider story and not my favorite but it was good.

omg I haven't bought a book in ages... :/ I still have some to read but with school...I just don't have time.
The last one I read (it was for school but it still counts :D) was Fédon by Platão (in english, Plato's Phaedo).
I do miss reading but I really don't feel like spending money on a book that I don't know if I will enjoy, since I don't earn any money. If I did, the situation would be different.

Maybe I'll read Theophile Gautier's stories once more. I just love "La Morte Amoureuse" (in a bad translation, The Dead Girl In Love).

Hello!

It's so good to find someone who also has a crush on books,Kamrusepas :D!

It's in threads like these I pity that there are so few Portuguese translated books :(!

I was thinking about Codex 632,by José Rodrigues dos Santos. It's a fiction based upon a (true)secret document about Colombo's nationality.The readable part - most of it is destroyed and it's written in code-allows some speculation regarding the the possibility Colombo might be portuguese. Nothing is proven,of course,but,in his romance,JRP makes his protagonist entering a quest which will confirm that.

Anyway,an author I know it's available in English language:) (he's Australian)is Garth Nix. I've just loved Sabriel-Lirael-Abhorsen. It's a fantasy trilogy,but its characters are really human...sometimes he's a bit scary the authour know so well what we feel!

From MZB,I've read Mists of Avalon and two more I don't recall the name,because I didn't like that much.But one was about the Trojan war.

My next adventure will be decide what book to buy first: Gormenghast,The Iron dragon's daughter or Kushiel...(the three,lol).

What IS embarassing is that I've read like twenty times more books in English than in my native language. I don't know if we need more translators here or what, but they really should get translating! No wonder that 70% of my nation never read a book other than what they had to for school.

Starting to read the third book from "Arthur", a tetralogy by Luc Besson.

What made buy the first one was its astonishing cover...we could almost feel the freshness of the garden featured in the front cover. It was a pleasent discovery:Luc Besson wrote quite a "real" fantasy,the heroe is a normal kid whose parents are divorcing,both unemployed.He went to live with her grandmother,who has a almost impossible to pay mortgage on her home.In the meanwhile,Arthur discovers a magic world in the garden...and the rest read it for yourselves :)!

I am currently on the Left Behind series. Never wanted to read them before but now I really enjoy them, though I'm only on the Nicolae book and am about half way through. I have yet to read the Harry Potter series and I really want to. I got somewhere into the first one. But didn't finish it. I just completed the novelization of the prequel to the Underworld movie and I enjoyed it. I just finished reading Eragon by Christopher Paolini. It's really good. I recommend it. I need some more books though. School gets in the way, lol, but still, I try to make time for it. Oh! Excited I be. I read memoirs of a geisha a while back and enjoyed it. It wasnt fast paced or anything but it was definitely well-written. I really hope to see the movie sometime though. :)

Not currently reading anything, but recently finished "Memoirs of a Geisha".

I wouldn't call myself a history buff, but I like to learn about the past and I found it very interesting. I would've liked to see what those settings really looked like, although I think the book gave me a really good picture in my head (I wonder how accurate those images really are...).

I would recommend this book for anyone, since I'm not into romantic stuff as a lot of girls are. Although the love story is a big part of this book, it has a way of staying in the background of the main character's personal struggles until later on. I'd say the main theme of the book is more survival in the face of adversity than a romantic theme.

Very good book, and the facts in it sound very authentic. :tmb:

btw, I haven't seen the movie, but I might now that I've read this.

let me take a deep breath babe
if you need me, me and neil'll be
hangin' out with the DREAM KING
neil says hi by the way

the grapefruit is winning
seems i keep getting this story twisted
so where's neil when you need him

Get me Neil on the line
No i can't hold

I've just finished reading The Girl who Love Tom Gordon, by Stephen King. So, I'm about to start reading The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian.

Just started Part II, and the first encounter with Julia. The book is pretty damn good. The whole concept is so familiar with modern-day "political correctness"

I just finished Freedom's Ransom by Anne McCaffrey - I've read almost all of her books, and love them all.
I notice a lot of you have also read Memoirs of a Geisha, I read it years ago and absolutely loved it! Can't wait to see the movie.

agreed jaywalker :D

I should be reading Kant's Groundwork of the Metaphysics of Morals (I think that's the title in english) for school but I really don't feel like it...so I'll probably pick up were I left off in Queen Of The Damned by Anne Rice, haven't read it for a year and I still have half of it to read. And yes, I blame school :D

I finished Maskerade by Terry Pratchett last night and now I'm reading Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde

I get moody if I don't have at least one book a night. I'm kinda addicted to reading :D

Brokeback Mountain - by Annie Proulx


It's a shame I haven't seen the film yet :(! I'm liking the book,but the language is a bit too harsh for my taste,but,then again,it's a tale and it should be more intense. But I think the film would be more poetic.

lollypops - He's one of my favorite authors, you gotta read the rest too :tmb:

Well, my mom bought me this book she insists I read. It's a collection of short stories by Roald Dahl. Has anyone here read his stuff? :)

I would say yeah for we could start a nice conversation, but truthfully I never read or even heard of it. :p

Well, I'll read it then, tell you if it's any good, then you can go find it and then we can have a fascinating conversation about it :D

Roald Dahl is a fantastic kids' author. I've read some of his short stories written for older audiences (The Great Automatic Gramma-can'trememberit) and they're very clever and original. :D

Yeah, but these stories are like macabre thrillers with black humor :p

Still read them, though. Some of his stuff is a bit bizarre and dark, but I still find it funny. Besides, your mum's bought it for you, how can you turn down a book? You can always give it back if you think it stinks. :D

What are the titles, BTW? :wve:

It's apparently compiled from the books "Kiss Kiss" and "Someone Like You"

Hm, never read those ones. But give 'em a try. It's Roald Dahl after all, the man's a genius. :p

Their Eyes Were Watching God. When I first picked the book up, I was hesitant. I had heard it was pretty hard to understand, as the dialogue is of a strong Southern African American sense. However, I'm nearly half way into it and it is a great coming of age story. I thought it would be boring, but it's actually every good.

I'd love to read it but.. I can't concentrate on it :p I've been ''reading'' it from spring
