Right now I'm reading Exploring the World of Lucid Dreaming by Stephen LaBerge, pretty good so far!

I'm reading "player of the games" by Iain M. Banks.
My second Banks book, my first one was Consider Phlebas and I wasn't too interested in that one but this one has me intrigued from the start :D
So, I'll probably start on a third Banks book after this, hoping this one is better than the first^^


I even read several pages naming different games and talking about games and the game and so on , several pages before I lost the game

I've just started reading "A Game of Thrones" by George R. R. Martin. It's my second time reading it, actually, but I have to do something during the 3.5 hours I spend on the train every day tounge2

I'm reading The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn in school. It's interesting, because a few years ago when I went to my grandparents' house, we visited Hannibal, where Mark Twain grew up. Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn are both based in that town. Like, the caves that are so prominent in Tom Sawyer are real caves, and we explored them. While we were there.

Anyway, after exploring the area that inspired Huckleberry Finn before I read it, it's interesting reading the book now and remembering. It brings back memories of the caves and the town.

Wow, that's pretty awesome that you got to visit the place where the book is based. I read it myself for a university course on American literature a month ago or so. I'd love to go to the US and explore quite a few areas. Unfortunately that won't really be possibly for me (money, blergh). But glad you got to enjoy it :D

I am reading the Interpretation of Dreams by Sigmund Freud.

The first section was pretty hard to get through as he was laying out (and to some extent debunking) a lot of theories that were around before his book. Most of those theories are no longer prevalent and many of the things Freud talks about in his book have become accepted now. So it all seems a bit obvious from the point of view of someone reading the book in 2008. I just have to keep reminding myself he wrote the book in 1900.

But the rest of the book has been really interesting so far, the actual analysis of dreams is really cool.

Me too but for me it's the first time wink I bought it since I heard many good things about it and when I started reading it the other day I didn't find it so interesting but when I had read some more pages("chapters" perhaps) I started to like it and now I enjoy it.

The Magic Thief: Sarah Prineas
It is really good for LD's because a Thief learns to use magic and becomes a wizards apprentice and after a while it gives me ideas on how to use magic in a LD.

Well,i'm going to start this book soon...when i'm bored.
It's called "Greseala Vraciului" or "The Bane's Mistake" in english
It's written by Joseph Delaney and is the fifth in it's series of phantasy books.
It's a really cool book.

I just finished reading "The Shack"

http://www.theshackbook.com/

Its about a man who goes to the shack where his daughter was murdered a few years earlier and he went back because he recieved a note saying to come, and it was signed from "Papa", which is what his wife called God. At the shack, he meets God and spends the weekend with them.

It was a good book. Even though I don't really follow any religon.
