    Now Reading:

    Before This:

    Absolutely Hated:


    All you have to do is answer the four questions...that's it!

    Cheers!

    Hmm. (I'm currently having a massive backlog of manga from gensokyo.org - explains why I've been so lazy lately)

    Now Reading: Touhou Strange and Bright Nature Deity by ZUN and Makoto Hirasaka

    Before This: Miko Miko Suika by Haniwa's Store (It's a doujin - and the doujinshi's name is normally an alias)

    My Favorite: Touhou Inaba of the Moon and Inaba of the Earth by ZUN and Toshihira Arata

    Absolutely Hated: Hmm. I haven't read a book I really hated yet. More like bored out of my mind.

    That's cool Wandering Traveler, though to be completely honest, I haven't heard of any of those books, let alone read. So here goes my list:

    Now Reading: Dan Brown's Inferno: A Novel

    Before This: Stephen King's The Stand (left it mid-way, got too damn boring)


    My Favorite: 2001:A Space Odyssey

    Absolutely Hated: Never completely hated a book, but bored to death by a few many. (Oh wait...Tom Clancy's Red October or something may be.)

    Well, it is manga inspired by an obscure shmup known as Touhou.

    Oh well.

    I don't really read books as much, more of a magazine guy (Nat geo, uni alum mag).

    Now Reading:
    With the Old Breed by E.B. Sledge (wanted to read it after watching the Pacific TV series)

    Before This:
    can I include my old engineering books from uni

    My Favorite: Probably With the Old Breed from what I've read so far.

    Absolutely Hated: none that I can think of.

    @XENOPHOS: is that Red October book about that russian sub? I think I watched the movie with Sean Connery..the hunt for red october. I think that was it. I liked that movie.

    I never read the book, but the movie bored me. I generally like Sean Connery movies too, but not that one.

    Now Reading: Motivational Interviewing: Helping People Change by William R. Miller & Stephen Rollnick

    Before This: The Better Angels of Our Nature: Why Violence Has Declined by Steven Pinker

    My Favorite: The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien

    Absolutely Hated: The only book I finished that I really didn't like was Zig Ziglar's: The Secrets of Closing the Sale, which I read at the insistence of a friend because he said it completely changed his life.

    Now Reading: The Simon Scarrow "Eagles" series (one after the other)

    Before This: Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card

    My Favourite: Dragon's Egg by Robert L Forward

    Absolutely Hated: A book by James Patterson. I forget what it was called, but it was some Utopian "Brave New World" rip-off and it was truly awful. I only gave it 20 pages before throwing it.
