Constantinople @ Wed Aug 31, 2005 2:44 pm

But, in all seriousness, I am reading:

The 9/11 Commission Report

A Short History of Byzantium by John Julius Norwich

The Fall of Constantinople: 1453 by Steven Runciman

Just started reading "Holding Juno" by Mark Zuehlke......again. I've read the first couple of chapter 3 times now. Just haven't got into the reading mode this summer. My handicap is a couple stroke lower though. :oops:

I just finished reading The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy for the 5th time... By far my favourite book of all time.

I'm reading Dune right now, great book and a definite Masterpiece as everyone claims.

Also, the book Eldest (Sequel to Eragon, a book I really enjoyed) just arrived today so once I finish Dune I'll tear into that.

Did you read the DaVinci Code Constant? You were mentioned once or twice...


Right now I'm reading Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. :D

Yes, I read the Code. Very interesting and speculative. The movie should be good.

I posted a trailer for the movie in the Entertainment Forum. It doesn't show much, but it's still intriguing!

Has anyone read Angels and Demons? And have any comments about it? We have it here, but I haven't read it yet.

I have heard rumours of it being more interesting or better than dVC, but I haven't touched it myself.

Im reading Green Grass Running Water by Tom King

with mentions of the fictitious Dead Dog Cafe, the book paints a great picture of the trials and tribulations of being an educated native from a reserve. The book is split up between many different characters and stories (one that is told as an indian story by some crazy elders) and doesn't seem to have much continuity until the stories all start melding together near the middle. I think it was chapter 6 or 7 that made me feel more Canadian then anything Ive ever expirienced.

READ IT ENJOY IT :rock:

I just started reading Jon Krakauer's "Into the Wild". I have heard so much about this book and the last book I read by Krakauer was "Into Thin Air" which blew my mind. Can't wait to get into the middle of this one.

I'll have to get that book!!! I loved his book 'Into Thin Air'. I just watched a Nova episode the other day about his trek to Antarctica. That was also interesting. Let me know how 'Into the Wild' turns out. :wink:

ive read angels and demons, if you like davinci and that type of fiction and style of writing you will like it, just give it time in between the books because he cliffhangers are tiresome

Yes... I ended up reading dVC in an evening, because it leaves no convenient opportunity to stop.... some might consider that a valuable trait, but I don't like how it read like a Hardy Boys book.

I was more intrigued by the historical story than the little puzzles, but I hear Mr. Brown was fairly "relaxed" in his historical accounts.

I found the history of da Vinci very interesting, though, and most of it seems to be based on fact (secrets hidden in paintings, etc). Does anyone know of a good book which goes more in-depth into his painting/inventions?

chapters has a whole section devoted towards it, they might not have it anymore but if you go to chapters.ca or amazon they will list similar books that disprove or approve of the davinci code
