Hey everyone

One more post here for today.

Winter months are approaching and I will soon be in need of some new reading material.

Right now for me it is John Sandford's, Naked Prey, A garage sale find. Can't beat the price, 5 books for a buck.

So what are you reading right now?

I wish I had more time to read... but these days other than blogs I haven't had a lot of time!

I mentioned in my three things post that I really enjoy vampire lore. The Anne Rice books are great. I think I enjoy them so much because of the history, when the story line looks back on some of the oldest vampires the "historic novel" feel is great. Now if these books were just about blood and evil, etc. I don't think I'd be into them, but Anne Rice has a way of making you really feel the despair that some of these vampires feel... watching everyone they love die! Not being able to enjoy a sunset or sunrise! When Louis first goes to a movie he sees Gone With the Wind and seeing the sunset at the end of the movie was very emotional! There is also an eroticism about Anne Rice's writing that is very enticing!

And at the other end of the spectrum... I'm reading The Voyage of the Northern Magic by Diane Stuemer right now. Amazing story! I'm also reading some great blogs!!

right know i'm re-reading Hemingway's The Sun Also Rises and trying to start reading some Nietzsche

S'io credesse che mia risposta fosse
A persona che mai tornasse al mondo,
Questa fiamma staria senza piu scosse.
Ma perciocche giammai di questo fondo
Non torno vivo alcun, s'i'odo il vero,
Senza tema d'infamia ti rispondo

I tend to enjoy the Magic/Barbaric/Mythical style. Authors like Thomas Harlan, David Farland, Melanie Rawn and Weis/Hickman. Although I found a couple of books that were excellent-- Servant of the Bones by Anne Rice, The Passion by Donna Boyd and The Last Precinct by Patricia Cornwell. Hopefully you don't have to spend too much time reading

Oh! By the way book stores in the malls like Carlingwood and St. Laurent have the front of store display tables with great deals ($4.99- $6.99)on new hardcover books. Just a thought if you want a nice bookshelf

Right now, Cloud of Sparrows, by Takashi Matsuoka... it is good so far but have read better. But like stated before it is good.

Favorite book of recent years is The 47 Ronin Story, translated by John Allyn, based on a true story from Feudal Japan, couldn't put it down.
