What are you reading?

People read too, right?

I figured that I'd start a thread where we can talk about what we're reading and recommend whether or not to read it.

Currently I'm reading 2061: odyssey three and I'm going to start on From the Ocean from the Stars. Both books are by Authur C. Clark. You've probably heard of the Odyssey series, or at least the movie, and I'd say the series is a must-read for any Science Fiction fan.

Textbooks. :lol:
Let's see if I can actually remember the last novel I read...
Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson. Now I want to re-watch all the film adaptions.

I'm reading a lot of books.
Recently finished Glenn Beck's common sense :]

It's strange. I'd rather read now instead of play a video game. Never thought I'd be like this.

I'm reading a book published in 1988 with 700 pages just because I can.

Is that like a Where's Waldo book? tee hee

Right now I'm bouncing back and forth between Rohinton Mistry's A Fine Balance and Books of Magic by Neil Gaiman, and I'm probably going to reread Jason Lutes' Berlin books after that.

You just levelled up in awesomeness.

Well in the past week or so I read both Scott McCloud's books, I read a book about drawing that... I've forgotten the name of and a book about animation by the guy who made 'Who framed Roger Rabbit?'

I've also moved on to Understanding Animation which will be followed by 2 film studies books.
Don't you just love college?

EDIT: I forgot, a possible addition to the list is that yaoi thread that within 3 or so hours got several pages of replies, and locked. Sounds possibly interesting.

Just finished reading "Lord of The Flies." It's like Lost, but with a plot that makes a lot more sense, and more under-aged nudity. Did I just peak your interest?...SICKO.

All the library had was Understanding and Reinventing Comics.

It's good isn't it? It really showed how much surreal cartoony stuff animators can get away with without anyone noticing.

I've read part of another book which goes at one point talks about the question of if Jerry's (from Tom and Jerry) a girl, and it's bizarre how much this changes things, because it brings in a lot of very weird sexual stuff between the two of them, like homo-eroticism, cross-species relationships and transvestitism.
You barely even need rule 34.
