No I have not, honestly I just started to get into reading, I have read a few books before (mostly from school) Thought I would just start reading as a hobby, and thanks i'll be sure to check those out.

'Salems Lot by Stephen King is what I recommend. Vampires, the way vampires should be...

I own well over 300 books, most of which I haven't read. I've got such a massive pile of books next to my bed to concentrate on first.

The Corrections by Jonathan Franzen is very good; I got a great idea of middle-class America from it. Some of it ranged from bizarre (one character ending up in Lithuania, for example) to incredibly upsetting, but it was well worked nonetheless. I'm looking forward to reading Freedom by him, but I'll wait for the paperback. I hate hardbacks

Sebastian Faulks' 'A Week In December' is what I'm going through now - it is set over a week in London, but there's so many characters. It isn't a particularly long novel, so there's no real development. It's an alright read I suppose, but reading it straight after Franzen's effort I feel a bit underwhelmed. That said, Faulks on his day is a brilliant author - 'Birdsong' is one of my favourite novels I've read.

I have 'Wolf Hall' by Hilary Mantl next, I'm looking forward to that one based on what I've heard about it. I was getting fed up with reading rubbish novels so I opted for a load that had won awards. The literary world is fickle, so just because they have won top awards won't make them amazing I know, but it's a help to narrow down my choices.

A couple of others in my pile right now - 'Under the Dome' (Stephen King) and 'No Country For Old Men' by Cormac McCarthy, although I found myself stalling halfway through 'The Road' for other reasons (college work, mainly). It was well written but I'm getting fed up with starting it over 4 times

Also jumping between both Obama's books, really only because of the US elections sparking my interest.

Just finished Lee Child's latest Jack Reacher novel Worth Dying For. Pretty good book, probably put it somewhere in the middle as far as Reacher novels go.

I've only ever read one of those Reacher novels (One Shot) after picking it up cheap, really enjoyed it. I should probably read them in order, but I bought 61 Hours yesterday.

Never noticed this thread. Not much of a reader these days.
Quote:
* What are you currently reading?
* Who are your favourite authors?
* Any books your looking forward to?
* Favourite ever books?

* How often do you read?
* How many books do you read?
* Do you believe the merits of books outweight the merits of movies?
1. Save Me From Myself by Brian "Head" Welch (former Korn guitarist)
2. Don't think I have any favorites.
3. None really, as I don't really pay attention to the scene. Jericho's second book Undisputed could be one one to check out though.
4. KISS: Behind The Mask and alot of misc titles that I can't be arsed to mention. I'm mostly interested in autobiographies.
5. Very rarely these days. Used to read tons as a kid (Harry Potter and the Nightmare Room/Goosebumps series were the shitz), but afterwards I've become a slave of motion picture and other non-readable media. Shame really.
6. See above. I have read plenty, but with my current pase I can say it's a book a year or something.
7. For me it's fifty-fifty. Since I left reading behind (so to speak) films have become my obsession, but whenever I find a good book it leaves me with an similar feeling of enjoyement.

Just read The Stranger. Its apparently one of the most popular "existentialist" novels of all time. I think Part 1 is fucking fantastic. Slows down in Part Two to get more of a grasp of the point of it. But still really worth a read.
