    I figured many of us here like to debate and exchange ideas ... I was just wondering what have you guys been reading lately?

    I am trying to finish the whole LOTR serie, already 800 pages in, but already lost track of so many damn elvish, orcish names and places ... :Smug:

    I am also reading Woodward's State of Denial about GW failed war in Iraq and how Rummy tries to control the whole DOD at the white house. I already did not have a good opinion of the so called leaders ... after reading this it probably won't get better.

    I’m currently reading “The Fall of the Roman Empire: A New History of Rome and the Barbarians” by Peter Heather. It’s really good so far.

    Going Postal by Terry Pratchett... just finished Beowulf, and after this I'll start The Mists Of Avalon, I think. I'm trying not to burn out on Pratchett books, but it's hard because they're so damn good.

    I think it's loosely based on his books or something like it, but as far as I know he's not directly involved with it, no.

    thats crazy, I'm reading Mort, and i just finished Sourcery. I started with The Color of Magic, and I'm working my way through them. Pratchett is great. He does for fantasy what Douglas Adams did for Scifi.

    My girlfriend has pretty much all of them, she started me off with Soul Music but I've read about 15 or 16 Discworld books since the beginning of May... I'm making up for lost time, I hardly did any non-curricular reading while I was in college. They're great stuff.

    I meant Discworld when I spoke of Simon the sorcerer ... I think I had 2 things confused. The great thing about Discworld is the fact that it is higly accessible and fun to read unlike some fantasy books that you have to read twice to get the idea of the story.

    i'm reading a Flaubert (really famous french author, a classic) book called "L'éducation Sentimentale" for school. I usually don't really like classic books to be honest, i find them kind of slow and the descriptions are annoying, but i'm starting to like this one. Maybe i've had too much prejudice in the past.

    And i usually read some science fiction. i've been reading Isaac Azimov's Foundation Trilogy. I just read the first book for now, quite interesting.

    and finally, i'm reading this book by this famous pagan french (normand) nationalist Jean Mabire, called "Thule : the newly found sun of the Hyperboreans" (if i translate litterally from french to english). Its mainly a history book but its also quite ideologically turned.

    For Pratchett is seems like Fantasy is just the setting he chooses, like most of his Night Watch books are crime dramas or mysteries, just within a fantasy world.
