I'm currently reading "Let the Right One In" by John Ajvide Lindqvist and "The Girl Who Played with Fire" by Stieg Larsson.
...Why are Swedish writers so awesome>_<...<3

Either way I highly recommend these two books if you haven't read it yet.

Jupiter's Travels by Ted Simon.
A four-year journey around the world on a Triumph motorcycle.  Unsurprisingly, a great read if you're into motorbikes and travelling.

I finally finished, after what seemed and interminably long time, Wicked by Gregory Maguire. I really thought I would like it, but it feels like I just suffered through it to say i've read it. Too bad.

Now I move on to another one that I bought and left to collect dust on my shelf, Eat Pray Love. I hope I can get through this one faster!

Brand new here :)

I'm reading "My Booky Wooky" bt Russel Brand... It's really really funny, lotssss of hilarious scenes - described so bizarrely accurate.

and I found... "The Alchemist" in my officetel, when I moved in. Side note (best book ever to leave in such a place for the next person).
I havent read it before, heard alot about it.... suuuuuuper impressed. I'd recommend it - especially to a fellow traveller who hasn't read it.

I saw that someone is reading The Alchemist and I assume it is the one by Paulo N. If you enjoy a light, Harry Potter esque read The Alchemist Series by Michael Scott is worth looking into.

Just finished reading From the corner of his eye by Dean Koontz, which was pretty interesting.  I just started reading The house of sleeping Beauties by Yasunari Kwabata.

Howdy folks,
New-ish member here!
Just wondering, what books folks are reading at the moment?
Any recommendations, etc?

I'm reading ""True History of the Kelly Gang" by Peter Carey
[/Just received The 4 Texts on Socrates which is my first of the so called "Classics". However I post to let anyone interested know about the Book Depository. They are really well priced and deliver to Korea. They are based in London and can be found at www.bookdepository.com. Well worth a look I can assure you.]

 I just began reading, Under the Loving Care of the Heavenly Father. It's about North Korea and the rise of Kim Il-Sung and his son, Kim Il-Jong. It's quite informative and gives a lot of insight on their dictatorship.

I just started reading Ice Station by Matthew Reilly.

Before this I read Seven Ancient Wonders by Matthew Reilly. It was quite good.

I just finished Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman, fantasy at its best.

I've only heard good things about The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larson, hoping to get stuck into that soon.

I've just started Dune, since I'm a massive Sci-fi Nerd in general and there's nothing quite like reading one of the clasics, also I've been promising myself that I would read it at some point and i've finally got round to it

I am currently readin the social contract.  But i suggest for anyone who is a fan of chinese novels to pick up the books "brothers" by Yu Hua.  It has everything one could ever want in a book.  And really touches on the relationship of Brothers (of course)
