    Many good books mentioned here: Pratchett, Adams, Melville, Pullman and the great GRRM.

    Right now I´m reading Feet of Clay by aforementioned Pratchett. Before that: Anansi Boys by Neil Gaiman.

    For me to open a book is a great challange.... its better to be described as a battle against lazyness... today i started reading some "metal" magazines which IMO they are a total cheap crappy shit... commercial bands only... begining with Dimmu Borgir... fuck... what ever..... then also tried to read the new TERRORIZER... same story.... from the rest i have an Enyclopedia about Mythology including that of Norse.... maybe when I'll be in a better financial condition I'll buy some other bunch-of-hardcovered-paper.

    I'm into fantasy books. Silmarillion and Lord of the Rings are great. Recently I've read almost everything Tad Williams has to offer, like "Otherland" and "Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn", ...

    Right now, I'm reading a novel by James Clemens called "Banned & Banished". After that I'll propably read The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy once again.

    My favorite is "Last Chance to see" by Douglas Adams (RIP)

    "Off The Rails In Phnom Penh - Into The Dark Heart Of Guns, Girls, And Ganja" by Amit Gilboa

    Hilarious account of Phnom Penh what it was like 10 years ago. Many things are the same today, for example I went to Happy Herb's Pizza, where they either serve your pizza "Happy", "Medium Happy" or "Very Happy". A modern-day Deadwood that place is.

    Needless to say I left more than happy.

    The Cold War-A new History- by John Lewis Gaddis
    Interresting, im learning all those details i couldnt catch at the end of 4th grade secondary because we ran out of time (but we covered very well all the 19th revolutions+WW1+WW2) Gaddis gives us USA's side and USSR's side but even if you cant point the exact sentence, his bias is so heavy....

    Currently perusing: Vikings: The North Atlantic Saga, edited by William Fitzhugh and Elisabeth Ward (Smithsonian Institute Press), The Complete Modern Blacksmith by Alexander G Weygers (Ten Speed Press), and the Backwoods Home Magazine. Along with a ton of various sites and articles on pretty much anything Norse or Anglo-Saxon I can find. Also some stuff on architecture...
