Right now I'm in the midst of "Old Souls" - I cant remember the author offhand, but it's about children who remember previous lives, and I'm also reading "Don't Call Them Ghosts" by Kathleen McDonell. I' recently re-read Getting OVer IT by Anna Maxted, and have Salem Falls by Jodi Picoult ready and waiting. I really have started reading a lot again.

"Vivir para Contarla" - it's Gabriel Garcia Márquez' autobiography.

I am currently ploughing my way through all of Samuel Beckett's collected works, in between a spot of Tolstoi, while simultaneously skimming through Ibsen's plays (in the original Norwegian).

Haha, no actually I am just reading the Sunday paper.

The Lord of The Rings (for the umteenth time!) I bought the illustrated version, the one that's illustrated by Alan Lee who worked with Peter Jackson on the trilogy, from Copenhagen at the end of July when I went to see U2 live in concert.

I'm trying to get into this book that I'm reading but it's so hard! Too much mathematical data.

Are you talking about LOTR..??
The most difficult about this one was to remember all the correct names...
I still want to read something about the history before the plot of the books...
That would be interesting...

No, the book that I'm reading right now is Big Bang: Origin of the Universe by Simon Singh.

I just finished Henry VI Part III, which I read for a drama exam. That wasn't a hardship for me, though, cos I love Shakespeare. And I especially love the historical plays

Although it can get very complicated trying to remember who all the dukes and lords and kings are, and which side everyone is on. I tend to have to make sure I've got our royal family's family tree to hand

And I'm also halfway through The Gun Seller by Hugh Laurie.

I think this is the first and last book that I'm going to read of his!

I'm determined to finish this though since I started it.

I haven't read this one yet, but I read Maus II and loved it! It was the most moving piece of holocaust literature I've ever read.

David Sedaris is my hero! I really want to introduce him to my high schoolers but I'm having difficulty finding a piece that a) shows his twisted brilliance in top form and b) would be considered "appropriate" for high schoolers.

I've just started reading a Danielle Steele book. That's right. Danielle Steele.

It's my first though, so don't judge.
