An actual book. Not manga (Light novels do count as books). ^^; Also, what book(s) are you currently reading?

Last time I sat down and read a book was last night. bigrazz I'm currently reading two books.

Physics of the Impossible by Michio Kaku and the Cirque du Freak series (currently reading vol.2).

If there's already another thread about this or one similar, I apologize. ^^;

Hmmm..I think it was Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time...not sure when, but at the moment, I'm looking for a good book to read, I really want the novelization of the 2009 Star Trek movie.

I'm reading one right now laugh
I read way more normal books than I do manga~ Even though I read quite a few manga series
The Book I'm currently reading is 'Eight Skilled Gentlemen' by Barry Hughart. The entire series is great-- I would really recommend reading it.

I used to read books all the time.

Now however, I'd rather amuse myself with my little gadgets and stuff.

Anyhoo, the book that I have currently been reading for like, the past 6 months is called "The Queen's Fool".
Some historical novel set during queen Mary's reign before queen Elizabeth I claimed the title. (Henry VIII times)
I really like it, and should finish it, but I just can't be bothered at the moment.

I actually can't remember the last book I finished I haven't read for so long.

Re: The Queen's Fool

Today.

I just finished The Wall by Sartre a couple of days ago.

I'm currently reading Les Enfants Terribles by Cocteau and The Stranger by Camus.

A couple of hours ago. Just a bit of light reading, A Life in a Year, while waiting for my class to start. Very interesting book.

I read all the time, although significantly less during the school year. I'm currently trying the discworld series by Terry Pratchett.

Last night and I'm sorry I read that book, it had a really sad ending it made me cry, I hate books like that. I'm going back to finish the Sword of Truth series.

That's a pretty good book. I remember reading it a few years back. I used to read a lot, but since high school I do not have enough time to read that many non school required reading.

Last night. I read about 5 books a week...for fun. I'm currently reading Fire by Kristin Cashore, it's pretty good and I find it better than Graceling - to which it's a companion book of. And I'm also reading Fallen by Lauren Kate. These are both fantasy books, though I prefer realistic books.
