What are you currently reading?

So, what are you all reading?

The only thing I'm really reading now is my Geography syllabus. The geography of the world economy and physical geography. Especially physical geography is fun :)

The last novel I read was Paulo Coehlo's latest novel, Zahir. But I returned it after reading about half the book. Wasn't really for me.

So the last novel I (really) read was the latest installment of George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire. I love that series. Anyone else here who has read something by George Martin?

Right now I'm reading: "George Washington's War: The Sage of The American Revolution" by Leckie. It's a nonfiction account of, guess what, the American Revolution War. I highly recommend it if you're interested in military history.

Not reading anything fun at the moment; just studying, sigh. The last book I read was Eragon I think.

Just finished the "One Hundred Years of Solitude" by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. It is a fantastic Nobel prize winning book. Absolutely recommend it.

I agree. Don't be scared by the number of pages, it's a great book.

My girlfriend is currently reading "Love in the Time of Cholera" by Marquez. She really likes it, so I was wondering whether I should give Marquez a try. Is "One Hundred Years of Solitude" better, though?

I've recently finished reading Winnetou by Karl May for the second time. I liked it very much. Before that, I read Douglas Adams' Hitchhikers' Guide to the Galaxy, and really enjoyed it. Too bad it ends how it ends... And before that, um... I believe I re-read The Secret Garden by F.E. Hodgson Burnett; some may view it as a children's book, but it's one of my favourites and I'd read it with pleasure at any age.

Currently not reading anything. Well I am reading the Ultimate Galactus comics and The Ultimates but that doesn't really count.
