Ok, I've gotten over my reluctance to pick up another book after having read through His Dark Materials. It helped that my wife started reading the series so now Lyra and Will can live on for a while more as I live the story again through my wife.

The book I've started reading now is Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson. So far I'm not impressed. Sure, the story seems to have potential, but his writing style annoys me, and why would a guy who's obviusly writing for nerds and geeks feel the need to explain in minute detail every bit of technology he's writing about. I see the need when describing "futuristic" technology, but he goes into detail about how the internet works, how computers work in binary and how and why 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 256, 512, 1024, 2048, 4096 and so on are important numbers when dealing with computers etc etc. Booring. Love the protagonist's name though: Hiro Protagonist :D

Just finished Innocent Mage, by Karen Miller. About to begin Awakened Mage, book two.

Innocent Mage was absolutely awesome.

Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy.
I've recently been trying to read as many classics as humanly possible because I haven't liked many "new" books.

I just finish reading "The Music Of Erich Zann"-H.P. Lovecraft

I could see this being a short silent film but the only sound you hear is that of the Viol.

I need a book to read.

My brain has stopped working. I need stimulation...

For reference, the last thing I read was A Clockwork Orange.
