Ah, I'm so happy to see that I'm not the only fan of Ursula K LeGuin's books here. ^^ I recently finished "A Wizard from Earthsea" by her, it was wonderful. ^^ I love the way she conveys moods... she's a master when it comes to that, and I love her for that.

I'm just in the middle of a book called "How to communicate with spirits". I saw that it mentioned a lot about spirit guides. I also just started "Don't sweat the small stuff...and it's all small stuff" which is really interesting.

I´m reading the first part of a fantasy trilogy written by a German author I really like, Ralf Isau. It´s called "Das gespiegelte Herz" (the mirrored heart) from the Chronicles of Mirad

I'm in AP English 4, and we've read ten books in ten weeks of school. Right now I'm reading Catch-22 and Poisonwood Bible, and I should start Dracula.

I'm reading Franz Kafka, by Max Brod. Brod was Kafka's friend, and before he died Kafka asked him to destroy all his manuscripts. Luckily Brod didnt keep his word and published what came to be some of the most influential literature in the 20th century. The book is a biography of Kafka, from a close friend's point of view, and although I'm not sure Brod's to be completely trusted with his interpretations (he seems to be interpreting ad hoc at some places), the book is indispensable for any Kafka scholar.
I've started reading the book so many times, but I also stop after a while (somehow it happens that I get so many interesting books everytime I try to start this one!). The first part, dealing with Kafka's childhood, wasn't really interesting. But now i'm in the third part, about Kafka's experience with institutions (he was an insurrance lawyer). It's now interesting.

Sounds like an interstesting book Nadim. I just finished:
Ricochet by Sandra Brown

Wow it's amazing. A book all about mystery, love, betrayal, deceit, confusion,crime and law. What's not to love about this? I seriously could not put the book down after about the 100th page.

I'm reading "Catch 22" by Joseph Heller
and I likes Yossarian.

Especially the part where he was censoring letters, by removing everything but names, or all verbs and so.

But I won't do that to your posts, removing the verbs -

I only read 4 chapters so far or maybe some more.

I just read "The gods themselves" By Isaac Asimov.
It wasn't very good.
I'm also reading a Kafka collection. That's more interesting!

I have just finished "Night Watch" by Siergiej Łukjanienko, and i'm starting "Day Watch". Great books, the atmosphere in them is so addicting...

Next in line: the third part of "Dark Tower" by Stephen King. I'm realy looking forward to read it, finished part one and two a while ago.

I generaly read lot's of fantasy (Terry Pratchett is my god!) and Star Wars books.

Nothing better than a warm bed, hot chocolate and a book...sooooooooo cozy ^^

I've recently finished reading
"Consider Phlebas" by Iain M. Banks (took a couple of 100 pages before I started liking the books)

I have also read 6-7 short stories by Jorge Louis Borges, I like reading his stories they feels like dreams. It seems like they are logic and not locig at the same time.
I found a Borges quote I like and put in my sig "I have always imagined that paradise will be a kind of library".

Right now I'm rereading "Don Quijote" by Cervantes, I was suprised it was better than I thought

I also reading some books by Ellis Peters, that is about the medieval monk Cadfael who solves crimes.
