I'm reading Stephenie Meyer. Just finished Twilight. Started New Moon. This is a cheesy romance series recommended by my other half. Are we gonna start a toril general discussion book club!?! I'd be up for it. Something else has to be better than this crap I'm reading.

The best part about the book Adriorn linked to is that it qualifies for Free SuperSaver shipping. This is especially great if you're looking for one of these to add to your order: http://www.amazon.com/Giant-Microbes-GM0400-GIANT-MICROBE/dp/B000JZ08ZS/ref=pd_sim_dbs_b_26


If you're looking for some lighter reading that isn't quite so rough on the ol' pocket book may I suggest:

Lol, damn nerds. The top two shelves of my bookshelf are devoted to math, but I usually read philosophy or physics in the shitter. Math needs paper to enjoy...

The toril book club sux0rz! My favorite book that I've read the past few years is Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger. How about some fiction suggestions?

I especially like the reviews that go along with Adriorn's link. You know I usually cast teleport to get places myself.

Lol, I'd love to see you do a differential in your head :)

As for fiction, I just finished turn of the screw not long ago and it was pretty good.

I just finished reading Grapes of Wrath (somehow I missed that one in high school) and am working on Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man. Next up is Walden.

Portrait of the Artist was a huge piece of shit. Enormously overhyped trash. Walden is good Jake.

Ewwwwwwwwwww. Had to read that for Irish Lit. back in college. Got maybe halfway through, then decided it just wasn't worth the pain.

Faulkner had some really interesting short story stuff I read in college that I actually really liked, there was one called "barn burning" that was really moving. To me at least heh.

But the last good fiction novel I read was "anansi boys" by neil gaiman. Really fun, entertaining story.

Currently I'm rereading the wheel of time series by robert jordan, the next book in the series should be put out sometime next christmas even though he has passed on. Think his son is writing it. Anyways nother series im getting into is the Tom Clancy stuff never bothered to read it before, just started it a little while back not bad stuff for sure.

Laurel, if you like comedy, you should try the Stephanie Plum books by Janet Evanovich (if you haven't already). There are about 14 of them, starting with "One for the Money" and "Two for the Dough," and they're all numbered like that. The first one's not as good as the second one, and they just keep getting better until they hit number ten (I think it was ten, it was pretty horrible, like she had a ghostwriter for the first half of it). There were plenty of moments where I laughed out loud while reading them. I let people at work read mine, and as soon as they do, they're hooked and plow through the entire series in no time.

They're not physics and math, but they're fun!

Nah, Ash. If you want comedy, look no furthur than Mark Twain. He has comedy with substance and authority :)
