Well, I figured since we have a now playing thread and a movie thread, why not a book thread to talk about what we're reading or what we like. I just found out that five of the forty-seven books of the Isfolket series by Margit Sandemo (which Mr. V got his name from) have been printed in English in the UK. I'm thinking I may import some of these and see how good they are, why not right? Right now, I'm reading "The Great Shark Hunt" by Hunter S. Thompson; my favorite author. My favorite books are by him, Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas, Curse Of Lono, and Fear And Loathing On The Campaign Trail '72. I'm also obsessed with George Orwell, 1984 is one of the most frightening and captivating books I have ever laid my hands on. What about you guys?
