Recently I've been into audio books.
Super expensive without a library card, though.
But I can listen to stories all day long ^^

About 15 minutes ago. A book for AP Spanish called ''El Libro de Arena" by Jose Luis Borges. It's for homework (:

just finished rereading the steven erikson series malazan book of the fallen and the latest dust of dreams. some of the characters came to some pretty nasty and drawn out deaths is the only problem with it but then again thats part of what makes it good knowing that the series is about the characters dying and how the deaths effect the world.

the description of the woman being hobbled is quick and brutal. it left me desolate for a while.

my favorite fantasy series next to the black company by glen cook.

Just a few days ago. (:
I read The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen, and I LOVED it.
I plan on buying it since I just borrowed the copy I just read
from the library.

Last time I read a book was an hour ago. I'm past halfway in Dan Brown's Deception Point and I'm currently re-reading the Harry Potter collection.
( I'm on book 7 shy )

Reading (Mangas and books) is definitely my favourite pass time apart from Writing.

It was like a week ago. I destroyed two 600 page books when I was on holiday because I was that bored and I had no Internet so I decided to read instead.
I went into that phase where I get hooked and ended up doing nothing but read when I could.

I have more books waiting to be read, but I just don't read them when I could be wasting time on the Internet instead laugh

Everytime i get bored and have no internet, i read a book, ebook or listen to audiobooks. and when I have no more books to read/listen to. I re-read them again(mostly Neil Gaiman's novels/shorts because they're always interesting even if I already read them).
now I'm reading Lovecraft's books

I just got a new job where i work a 12 hour graveyard shift so for the last week or so i have had a lot of time to read. I was able to read a few books that i have been wanting to for a while.
Osamu Dazai's- No Longer Human- this novel was very interesting and even though it was written almost 70 years ago and in a different country i can still really relate to the story. long story short check it out.
Albert Camus's- The Stranger- Also a very good novel about how a ordinary man can be put into a extreme situation and how this can make you examine your own life, while everyone is is doing it for you.
Philip K Dick- Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep- futuristic story that explores the relationships between humans and machines. This is the book that the movie Blade runner was based on, but i have to say they are very different from each other.

Now i have to go get a new book to read for tomorrow's shift none

The only books I ever read are the ones we have to study on. I last read The Silver Donkey (very boring, in my opinion), yesterday.
