    Books I own but haven't read yet

    Ions, The Master and Margarita is one of the best, and most bizarre, books I've ever read.

    True Porn Clerk Stories - that was a favourite of mine, too, WoodenCoyote. :D

    Books I own but haven't read yet

    I've got Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell now too, but haven't even considered tackling it yet. I read Huck Finn for school and hated it, but I suspect if I read it again now, without the mandatory aspect, I'd probably enjoy it more. If you read any of those soon, please come back and report...

    Books I own but haven't read yet

    There was a time when I would have considered Bukowski God, too, but not these days. There will always be a special place in my poetry-loving heart for the man, though. :) I do prefer his poetry.

    Recommend a very good (semi-)obscure fantasy/sf book

    Lavondyss by Robert Holdstock. You mentioned in another thread that you had read Mythago Wood but it didn't seem like you had read the sequel. I prefer Lavondyss because he takes the idea he presented in Mythago Wood and runs away with it, producing some of the most beautiful prose I have ever...

    Books I own but haven't read yet

    Stewart, I think I am going to forget about Tolkien. To be honest I've never been remotely interested in reading him at all, but I do own his books (thanks to my husband, the LoTR freak) and they will probably forever remain in the Unread Pile. Isabell, I thank you for supporting my habits...

    J.D. Salinger: The Catcher In The Rye

    Yup. Sorry it took me over a year to get back to you on that, though. :o

    Books I own but haven't read yet

    After a year and a half, I return to this thread only to discover that I have only read ten of these books in that time! Not that I've only read ten books in a year and a half, mind you, but I keep buying new ones that prevent me from reading the old ones. Alas, it is my destiny to drown in a...

    Franny and Zooey by J.D. Salinger. This book is weirdly relevant to my life at the moment. :eek:

    How much books do you read per year?

    I am currently in one of those slumps too, but I'm moving to Dublin by van and ferry on Saturday so maybe I'll get some reading done, although in recent years I haven't enjoyed reading while travelling at all. I drive my husband crazy wanting to talk the whole time.

    How much books do you read per year?

    I probably read about twenty books a year, not counting all the individual poems and short stories I also read due to my addiction to web magazines. I still have about 90 books I haven't read yet and another 290+ on my Amazon wishlist. :rolleyes:

    Mythago Wood

    Mythago Wood and Lavondyss are two of my favorite books ever, especially Lavondyss. I still haven't read the following books in the series but I am planning on it. The amount of description and imagination that went into the story is simply breathtaking, and I don't think it's going too far to...

    What's your Pirate name?

    Iron Jenny Rackham A pirate's life isn't easy; it takes a tough person. That's okay with you, though, since you are that person. You have the good fortune of having a good name, since Rackham (pronounced RACKem, not rack-ham) is one of the coolest sounding surnames for a pirate. Arr!

    How Many Have You Read?

    I found it rather dry, but I also had an uninspiring tutor.
