I finished "2001: Space Odyssey" tonight, and I am also starting "2010: Odyssey Two." I love Aurthur C. Clarke!

I'm totally making progress reading the B.O.M. I'm in 2 Nephi: 10. Already read 32 chapters. Now only... 13.8 books and... 207 chapters left to go... !

Needless to say, I won't be done before I head out into the field.



Current LD goal(s): Eat a sandwich.

Oooh, that's such an awesome book! mrgeen

Unfortunately, I'm not reading anything at the moment... except for all these books about Borderline Personality Disorder (I'm doing a project about it at school, and it's project week right now >_<). I'm so bored with it already...

Hah, no one has posted here since me... overspannen

I'm reading one of the Dune books right now, but the problem is, it's the second one (I think) - Dune: House Harkonnen. I haven't read the first one... so I'm just wondering, if anyone has read the Dune books, is it necessary to read the first one before you read the second one?

Otherwise I guess I'll go back to the library and borrow the first one instead.

House Harkonnen is in this sort of "Prelude to Dune" set of novels, so they would prepare you well for Dune, I guess... I'm not sure, though - I haven't read the prelude to Dune ones yet.

Your reply made me even more curious, Wnvoss, since I didn't even know the books had prequels, so I went to the Wikipedia (I had no idea the Dune universe is so huge! eek2 ), and then to amazon to check the reviews... and now I think it seems weird to read it because first of all, people say it's not as good as the other books, and it's written after all the other books... overspannen

Luckily, I picked up another book at the library, I'll read that one instead until I go back to the library check out the other Dune books. It's "The Telling", by Ursula K LeGuin (my favorite author). ^^

Just finished Phillip Dick's "Time Out of Joint", Just started Discworld - love it already ^^ , and also currently reading Stephen King's "The Dark Tower" book 5 - it's quite ponderous overspannen.

I'm reading "Animal Farm" by George Orwell. I normally don't read books, but I have to read it in school.
