I'm starting King's Dark Tower septilogy.

You're in for a ride of your life. The Dark Tower series are my all-time favorite books.

So I just finished The Wastelands, and from a few clues I suspect that Walter o'Dim is actually Randall Flagg from The Stand. Am I right?

Huh, according to wiki The Stand is actually partially inspired by Earth Abides

Two going right now:
Do Gentlemen Really Prefer Blondes?: Bodies, Behavior, and Brains--The Science Behind Sex, Love, and Attraction


Small Favor (Harry Dresden, book 10)


Oh - wait! almost forgot this one, which I'm reading out loud to kids each night:
The Titan's Curse (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Book 3)

I should read more Hunter Thompson. It's dropped off my radar lately, and that should be corrected.
I read The Rum Diary a few years ago. It was so.... I don't know what how to class it. Engaging and totally off-putting at the same time. In reading some of his short stories, too, I've noticed I'm almost tired when I finish.
Hunter S. Thompson the famous motorcycle rider?  I have a collection of quotes from him but I didn't know he wrote any books!

I'm reading Moonrise by Ben Bova right now, next in line is Moonwar the sequel about liberation of the moon colony from earth government.  After that is Crisscross, a Repairman Jack novel by F. Paul Wilson.  I plan on finishing up the LaNague Federation series after that.
This is sarcasm, right? "famous motorcycle rider?" You didn't know he wrote anything?

This collection of classics was originally my grandmother's (RIP). This has been in my family for years, but I never bothered to read any of them until now:



I started with this one.

I can't quite make out what this is, do you think you could post a higher resolution pic of your clutter?

good omens is an awesome book.  i especially love the jokes in the notes, like the bugger all this edition and the thing about the dinosaurs.
