    I suspect many here are avid book readers.

    I am currently reading two, in tandem.

    One, which is excellent, is Warlock by Wilber Smith. (Ancient Egyptian local)

    The second, which is not quite so interesting is, The Sundered World by Frank Ryan.

    How 'bout you folks?

    Just finished "Lamb" by Christopher Moore. Pretty good.

    Probably going to read "Good Omens" again hoping that the rumor of a movie project is true.

    I just finished Brave New World Revisited, so I'm thinking next I'll start either Farenheight 451 or Starship Troopers.

    I love dystopian Scifi.

    Right now, I have been reading various college text books. Not real interesting and insightful, but it's the truth. When I have the time to read books of my own accord, I enjoy reading what are considered classics. I also enjoy reading books centered on current events and political affairs. But right now, just text books.

    Guess I'm not the only one to have more than one book going at a time. Just finished last night ..."Worth More Dead" by Ann Rule, (true crime-I'm fascinated) am also reading "Angels & Demons" by Dan Brown, "The Complete Works of Flavius Josephus" and various other archaeological books concerning the Holy Lands....

    I often have three or four books on the go at once but at the moment I"m only reading two:

    Jesus and the Lost Goddess by Timothy Freke and Peter Gandy and
    Women or Spirit by Katherine Martin

    Both are good books.

    Sorry ... I couldnt resist. You are certainly hardcore, that is for sure.
    (And I do hope you take this in the spirit it was intended.)

    I try to keep my reading list updating on my profile. In addition to those books, I'm also, re-reading, A Chosen Faith: An Introduction to Unitarian Universalism by John A. Buehrens and Forrest Church. Every time I read that book, I get a deeper meaning from it.

    The Giver by Lois Lowry (recommended by a friend)

    In a world with no poverty, no crime, no sickness and no unemployment, and where every family is happy, 12-year-old Jonas is chosen to be the community's Receiver of Memories. Under the tutelage of the Elders and an old man known as the Giver, he discovers the disturbing truth about his utopian world and struggles against the weight of its hypocrisy. With echoes of Brave New World, in this 1994 Newbery Medal winner, Lowry examines the idea that people might freely choose to give up their humanity in order to create a more stable society. Gradually Jonas learns just how costly this ordered and pain-free society can be, and boldly decides he cannot pay the price.
