    Book Reccomendations & What are you reading?

    So whats everyone reading right now? (if you read).
    And what would be your recommendations on a good read be?

    I'm reading "The Runes of the Earth" - by Stephen Donaldson. Last in the "Chronicles of Thomas Covenant".

    I'd recommend "Incompetence" By Rob Grant - Funniest book I've ever read.

    *For a guy who reads so much I've just noticed I've mis-spelled the title of this thread *

    The last book I read was Mortal Engines by Philip Reeve.
    I am also excited about Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials books being turned into films.
    I highly recommend checking out both authors.

    Yeah! He was a writer for the tv series too.

    He's written red dwarf books along with Doug Naylor (think thats his name)
    "Last Human", and "Backwards".

    "Colony" - "Incompetence" - and "Fat", are his own 3 books. All are great, the humor is on par with Red dwarfs.

    Currently reading Insomnia by Stephen King. Not very good so far.

    I recommend Catch 22 (author?) The English Patient by Micheal Ondaatje and anything by Neil Gaiman is good.

    No wonder it sucks. Its by Stephen King

    And Catch 22 is an all time classic - Of the variety your high-school English teacher will have you reading. Its by Joseph Heller

    Just finished 'bloodtide' by Melvin Burgess, very good book

    I read some Sas books by Andy McNab they are quite good.

    I also used to read books by the author Darren Shan and they were very interesting.

    Also the Anthony Horowitz books are a good read
