Gerd Dürner meint:
Reading Daniel Keyes "Flowers for Algernon" currently.
Depressing book, but a deserved classic.

I just started with "The Meaning of Night" by Michael Cox, a Victorian style novel, including love, murder and betrayal - very well written, very promising! A jewel for all who love arts and literature!

Gerd Dürner meint:
Just finished "Wolfsbane & Mistletoe", a Werewolf/Christmas story anthology edited by Charlaine Harris and L. P. Kelner.
Loved it, as usual the stories vary but offer a overal solid quality and a nice selection of contemporary authors from different writing fields. There is a strong trend towards Urban Fantasy/Chick-Lit throughout the book, though, so if that is not your Genre you won't enjoy it as much as I did.

I'm currently reading:
-David Brain: Crowd Surfing
-Richard Montanari: Badlands
-Alexander McCall Smith: The Comforts of a Muddy SUnday
- Duncan Brown: Influencer Marketing
as you can see, I'm a "several books simulataneously" reader as well - though not as many as you

You're an amazing reader! I don't have so much time at the moment, so I'd really like to read something that I'll like. I enjoy Ruth Rendell aka Barbara Vine. Are there any authors any of you could recommend who write crime and/or mystery similar to her style of writing?

I`m reading " The monk who vanished" from Peter Tremayne a mystery of ancient Ireland. It is the 7th book of the Sister Fidelma mysteries which are set during the mid-seventh cerntury. I love it very much.

@Positron
I accidentially deleted my last entry... However, I'm now through with Mo Hayder's "Pig Island" and must say, that, what started as a pageturner turned out to be not nearly as good as her previous books.

And now I've started with "Ritual" which has been making me yawn for the first 100 pages. Let's just hope, the story catches up with all the boring little details and adds them up to something a bit more exciting.

"Birdman" and "The Treatment" were really extraordinary, and it seems to be difficult for Hayder to hold this level in every respect.

Yeah, we just waited too long for the next book. I've almost forgotten half of everything. >>

Dion71 meint:
Right now I'm reading Book 3 from the Sword Of Shadow Series by J. V. Jones called A Sword From Red Ice. Everybody who likes Robert Jordan's and George R. R. Martin's stuff, should take a look at J. V. Jones. Real good Epic Fantasy.

My next book will be by Rachel Caine. It's called Gale Force and it's from the very funny and entertaining Series Weather Warden.

Every night i enjoy my Wheel Of Time Audiobooks right before sleeping. At the moment i have just started the Series from the beginning with The Eye Of The World. I really don't know, how often i've read the books or listened to the CD's since the early 1990's.

At the Moment, I´m reading a Book of Marion Zimmer Bradley. It´s just the 7th book in this year. Iff I would have to count, how many books I´ve read during my life since now, I would not know what to say, but it must be nearly thousand.

Gerd Dürner meint:
Moved on to Susanna Clarke's "Jonathan Strange & Mr Norell",

the title always reminded me of Stevenson's "The strange case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde" but the book is more akin to Tolkien's Ring. She shares his love to go off on a tangent and to add footnotes that add little to the story at hand but serve to enrich the setting.
A great read so far with a humorous view on typical British gentleman behaviour.

Edit:
Well, I stopped reading Clarke because she gets quite tedious to read after sometime, I miss a proper story focus in her book.

Picked up Stephenie Meyer's 'Twilight' and I love that book, it really lives up to all the hype.

I just finished "Darkly Dreaming Dexter" by Jeff Lindsay and I really enjoyed it. This may be the first time that I like an offspring (TV-Series) more than the actual book series, though.
Well, I couldn't resist and ordered the second part right away. I can't wait to read it!
Anyone who likes crime stories, serial killers, mystery and dark humour should look into the Dexter series.

I'm still reading "Thud!" by Pratchett and "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" by Douglas Adams (I read that one in German years ago, I always wanted to read it in English. It's funny everytime I read it, but I guess everyone has done that before. It's kind of mandatory literature ;) )

Tedesca meint:
After "The Magician" I'm now reading W. Somerset Maugham's "Of Human Bondage" - both highly recommendable classics!

@red
I bought NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN a few weeks ago but currently I don't have time to read it. I love the movie (its brilliant!!!) and hope that the book is good as the film.
But I read already a few lines and its the same Cormac-Style as THE ROAD.
