    "The Terror" by Dan Simmons...
    Excellent book based on actual events with supernatural overtones...

    Waiting on the next SW book. Reading 20th Century Russian Poetry, Dumas' Le Chevalier de Sainte-Hermine, Jo Graham's Black Ships, & Gail Z. Martin's Dark Haven.

    I just finished “Tides of Darkness” which is a Warcraft novel… that was a fun read.

    Right now I am reading a book called “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” – it’s a re-write of the classic novel as if it had been set in the middle of a zombie apocalypse. It’s not great, but it’s not all that bad either. A little slow moving for a novel of this genre.

    I should be done with my current book in a few days and I haven’t decided what will be next. I just ordered a TON of books off of Amazon – I think the total was around 14 (Can you tell I like to read? Didn’t think so).

    =)

    Just finished reading This Book Is Broken by Stuart Berman. It's an oral history of Broken Social Scene (a Canadian Indie Rock band)

    I have two books on the go right now:

    Order 66 by Karen Traviss
    Heat by Bill Buford (I love books about cooking and kitchens)

    I have a ton of SW books to read! My girlfriend and I have been stockpiling for a while now so we had to impose a book-buying moratorium. She's currently reading The Dark Lord Trilogy.

    Heathcliff goes to Camp. Lots of "edge of your seat" action.

    I'm reading War on the Eastern Front by James Lucas. It is always of interest to see how the Germans, vastly out numbered, would manage to hold off 100+ T34's SU's & KV's with a couple of Marders, a handful of MK IV's with a couple Panthers or a Tiger or two for good measure. Anyway, guess how it ends?

    I think I am spelling this wrong because the book is not in front of me at this point. I am reading the Silmarillion.

    Chariots of the Gods.....interesting concepts on UFOs that visited in ancient times and why they might have mistaken aliens for gods

    Dude. I heart me some Drizzt.

    Now reading Stephen Hunt's The Court of the Air, Christopher Priest's The Prestige, Cherie Priest's Not Flesh Nor Feathers, & still working on Dumas' Le Chevalier de Sainte-Hermine.

    ETF typo.

    Currently re-reading some of the older Wild Cards series (edited by George R. R. Martin...lotsa people write in them). Always found them fun way back when I started getting them and just found a box with quite a few of my old books in it. Interesting "What If?" type "history".

    Re: What book are you currently reading?

    I recently started the New Jedi Order series. So right now, Im going through Dark Tide II: Ruin. I was a bit sceptical of the series at first but then I found a great deal on the bay for the entire series.

    However, I just got the notice from amazon that Abyss was shipped. That might get me distracted lol

    I started reading my first E.U. book "Order 66". I like it so far, but it jumps all over the place so I like to re-read the last chapter just to read the next two chapters.

    There are many great books about star wars lore from the epic Rise of
    Darth Bane to the republic commando books which so many of you have read and loved, but if you are in to star wars then the Warhammer 40k Universe may also interest you with books such as Into the Maelstrom, (which I am reading at the moment) is a collection of small stories by various authors and the awesome Eisenhorn novels. Either way these are great books and i suggest you at least give other lores a try.

    If youre into Wh40K, I would suggest you read the Horus Heresy series. Most of those are pretty darn awesome. You mentioned Eisenhorn, which is one of my favorites. Ravenor is extremely good as well, and so is Storm of Iron.

    Watch out though, there is some seriously ****** fluff flying around as well though. Especially C.S. Goto books arent really worth the money.

    If you also like fantasy, check the Nagash book. Second one is coming out soon.
