Hi Everyone,
I hope you had a great Thanksgiving. I have an innocent question for all of you and here it is. What have you been reading lately? and what is your favorite book? This definitely includes Graphic novels.

    Personally, I like the Bible. Probably the funniest book I'll ever not read. But in all seriousness, I read this Magic the Gathering book a while back, forgot the title, but it was good nonetheless.

    I'm reading Neal Stephenson - The Baroque Cycle at the moment.

    He wrote some of my favorite books: Snow Crash and Diamond Age.

    Another favorite writer of mine is Stanislaw Lem, especially his Cyberiad-books.

    Greg Egan is also very good, his short story Luminous made me re-read the whole story as soon as I finished it! Again and again...

    Well, I just finished reading Grail Prince, but that was for a class...I've also recently read R.A. Salvatore's latest, The Two Swords, and I've been trying to finish The Pirate Round (mmm, pirates) since August. I'm something of a fantasy geek, obviously.

    As for favorite book...I'd say it was a tie between Anna Karenina and R.A. Salvatore's first DemonWars trilogy (because they're all one book. Really. One big 1,500 page book...okay, no, not really).

    My favourite is Dune by Frank Herbert, but I have also read a little by Isaack Asimov and H. P. Lovecraft.

    just finished "The DaVinci Code" which was amazing! and before that was "The Odyssey", and an extremely interesting non-fiction book called "Stiff: The Secret Lives of Human Cadavers" That was one of the most incredible books i've ever read. It's about what happens when you die and donate your body to "science".... Good stuff

    I would have to say that I don't have a favorite story/book. My favorite author is H. P. Lovecraft and my favorite humorist is Douglas Adams. I'm currently reading Livy's Early History of Rome (translated).

    I recently finished the first three books of The Hyperion series by Dan Simmons, I liked the first one the best.

    For non fiction I like Jon Krakauer, Into the Wild is my favorite
