It may seem a little strange (bearing in mind that I have never concerned the best-sellers, I prefer classical literature), but now I am reading "World Without End", by Ken Follett.

At the moment I have read the first 100 pages and it's not bad at all. wink.gif

I finished I Am Legend and read a few more short stories in that collection - nearly finished with the book. I am here to tell you that the movie is nothing like the book. I think Will Smith is starting a trend - starring in Movies that have "I" in the title (I, Robot - I Am Legend) and are nothing like the books they are supposedly based on. So, what's next? I, Claudius set in the 23rd century????

I think I actually found two things that were true to the story, though. One - his name was Robert Neville in both. Two - he dies at the end. Everything else is different. The story is very, very good, though. And the ending is very different - puts a totally different spin on the "I Am Legend" statement. Definitely worth reading.

I am the middle of third book of the Lord John series by Diana Gabaldon.

Don't know why but I started with the third one instead of the second???? That's what happens when you start too many books at the same time, I guess.LOA

Ah, I'm getting behind here, I'm still reading Odd Thomas, but I've also picked up a few books on Rock Climbing to read up on some skills I'll need to get back for the summer, I think we are acctually selecting some more novels for reading in school too sometime this week or maybe next, so another book to add to the pile

I noticed in the paper the other day that Arthur C. Clarke passed away he was the last of the three greatest Sci- Fi writers, Azimov, Heinlein, and Clarke. He was also the inventor of the Communication Satillite and the first to suggest geo-syncronous orbits for them. I'm trying to find my copies of 2001 and 2010. to reread them. His is a loss to both the world of Science and Sci-Fi

I finished The Spiral Staircase and am back to Dragonfly in Amber. I "only" have 300 pages to go. I'm determined to at least finish that book before I move on to my Elizabeth Peters book that I started. Peters' books require a little more attention than the average fiction because her mysteries are tough to figure out. I just can't be juggling Jamie, Claire, and the Jacobites and early 20th century archaeological excavations in Egypt at the same time. tongue.gif

In the last month and a half I have read "This is Your Brain on Music", "Musicophilia", "The Creative Call" and am now reading "The Creative Brain" . I guess you might say that I am in a "creative/musical" mood. These books have been fascinating reading. One of these days I will get back to reading what others call "fun" stuff - a.k.a. fiction books.

I have a few on the go, as always, but the most interesting by far is "The Alexandria Link" by Steve Berry. He really is a pretty impressive writer for fans of action.

I finished Odd Thomas this week and it was One of the Best Books I've EVER Read, it was really really good, but it's pretty sad at they end. However incredibly good read, Dean Koontz has earned his spot as my new favorite writer. He's written well over 42 books and I've only read 2 so I have a good bit of reading ahead of me, anyways, his books are well worth reading, now off to "Forever Odd"

Right now I'm reading "I Listen To The Earth" by Yeremei Aipin; it's a book my brother Richard sent me, it's a book of legends and tales of the Khanty people in Siberia.

The many similarities betwen the life of the Native Siberian people and the Native American people are very interesting, the are living by same set of values and so there are many similarities in their legends.

I've been reading some light mystery/humour books this week. So far, I'm on the third one by Tamar Myers and the second by Sharyn McCrumb. Tamar Myers has two series of books - this one is about a Mennonite innkeeper named Magdalena Yoder. Her sense of humour is so much fun - I just love these books. I was reading Grape Expectations when we got in the accident and the book didn't come home with me. When my honey went to get everything out of the car after it had been towed, he threw everything in a couple of bags and then he dropped them off at his uncle's house (since his uncle had driven him to the lot where the car was taken). So, I had to read Assault and Pepper while waiting for Grape Expectations to return to me.

Then, whilst doing my twice a day cat feeding next door, I raided my girlfriend's book collection for two of Sharyn McCrumb's early books - Bimbos of the Death Sun and (the one I'm currently reading) Zombies of the Gene Pool.

Quite a change from my non-fiction stuff, eh? But that's about all I can concentrate on right now - I just needed some fun light reading.
