I've read Bill Bryson's "A Short History of Nearly Everything" almost two times. I read it all, then I started to read it again, and now I have almost completed it for the second time.

And I've just started to read "A Tale of Two Cities" by Charles Dickens, the original version from the 1870s rather than a verson in more simplified English.

If you think that's fun, try reading Defoe unedited.

Two weeks ago I finished Stephen King's "Shining" (in german of course), good story, now I'm reading "Damals bei uns daheim. Heute bei uns zu Hause" from Hans Fallada, that are interesting and funny storys of his life, in German too, cause he was a german author...

I'm reading "The Rebel Sell" by Jospeh Heath & Andrew Potter, basically about how the counter-culture movement is counter-productive.

Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy- A Trilogy of Four

I'm reading one at work too but can't remeber what it is called or who the author is. :? It's a fantasy novel....The Malazan Empire, Genabackis, Darujhistan...almost too many characters to keep track of...ring a bell?

Right now I'm reading And The Band Played On by Randy Shilts. IT's about the emergence of the AIDS epidemic and the various responses to it. It's a fascinating and depressing read. I highly reccommend it.

State of Fear by Michael Crighton. He takes on global warming and our misunderstanding of what's happening and why. Once I'm done I'll go through his footnotes and see what's available.
And whatever from Baen books I can find. Eric Flint, David Drake, John Ringo...The list goes on.

I almost picked this up the other day but chose Ludlum's The Altman Code instead. Part of his Covert-ONE series, which I love. Let me know how the Crighton book is...

Right now I'm reading 'Fear Nothing' by Dean Koontz. Only the second novel of his I've read, and so far it's interesting.

Right now, I'm reading Canucker.

Canucker's saying that "Right now I'm reading 'Fear Nothing' by Dean
Koontz. Only the second novel of his I've read, and so far it's interesting."
