are you reading a good book that you just can't put down? or have you ever read a really good book? right now i'm reading two mystery books. in mystery books someone is always dead or murdered. one is about a girl drowning and she hasn't been found and the other is about a girl getting strangled in an empty cabin. good books! :D

    Ive read quite a few that I couldn't put down. Laurie King wrote a couple about Sherlock Holmes that were excellent. And there was one about fuedal Japan called The Tokaido Road. That one still draws me back.

        Tokaido is set during Tokugawa period and proposes that Lord Asano had a daughter and the story has her traveling from Kyoto to Edo(or vice versa) to take revenge on Lord Kira. Really good.

            Lucia St. Clair Robson. I found it in a book sale at a hospital. When I went to buy another copy that I didn't want to damage I had to buy it through 3rd parties.

                                      This month I'm reading all three LotR books.

                                        I just finished reading three Star Wars books; Jedi Trial, Labryinth of Evil, & Jedi Sunrise (it's got Lightsabers, Darkest Knight, & Jedi Under Siege, #'s 4-6 of Young Jedi Knights), and they were all awesome. I absoluetely love Star Wars books, so those you'll usually catch me with. Two books I red within the last two months that I finished within three days were Blood Bowl and the sixth Harry Potter. I could not put those down for the life of me.

                                        Right now I'm reading Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, which is turning out to be quite different from the movie :shock: However it's taken me about a week to get through the first fifty pages, so obviously something is up... it is interesting to understand so much more in detail, though, I love those effin' movies to death, and some things that weren't really explained in the movie (How Aragorn a.k.a. Strider knew Frodo and the others would be at the Prancing Pony in the first place) are starting to make sense to me.

                                        Next I'll want to read Hellboy: On Earth As It Is In Hell, Shadowmancer, or maybe even The Two Towers if I end up enjoying the Fellowship more than I am now after all :?
