B. Gössler meint:
Right now I'm reading terry pratchett's "Guards, guards". But a few days ago I bought Phillip Pullmans first part of "the golden compass", well, a bit dull, I think...I like fantasy, but not "too fantastic", just like terry pratchett books, ok, there are vampires, trolls and faries in his books, but they act like real people..they just happen to be a troll or other, no problem there.
for me, the story isn't really the interesting part, more the way it is told...like "a long way down", really great story, but it's written in a very "slow" way...
there a some books, which you just can't lay down, because they're so intersting and there are others,..well, you just think "ok, on the next page something is going to happen!!" (but it won't).

I'm currently reading Ian McEwan's Atonement (the film was done beautifully, the book must be even better!!!), Bill Bryson's Reif für die Insel (Notes from a small island), Austen's Emma, Kate Fox's Watching the English and a German book called Kleine Geschichte Englands. Hm, I see a pattern here ;-)
It really is a miracle that I'm reading German books right now, haven't done that in years.

I´m reading at the moment "Oscar Wilde discovers America" by Louis Edwards. It´s situated in 1882 when Oscar Wilde was invited to give a lecture tour in the States. It´s written from the view of his black valet and how he discovers America and live alongside Oscar. I find it quite interesting and pretty easy to read except when they start some metaphysical discussions about live, love and art and how they all play together.
I usually read one book after another and on one side can hardly wait to finish one so I can start a new one, as I have around 100 books waiting in line and there are always more books coming as I can hardly pass by a book store without looking around... The fate of a bookworm...
The next book will probably be a German one. And thereafter it will be either Gregory Maguires "Wicked" or "Mr Nice and Mrs Marks" by Judy Marks. Will probably depend on my mood then.

Right now I'm reading the instruction manual for "Pattex Kraftkleber" by Henkel KGaA. It's written in easy undestandable German and highly informative.
This "Kraftkleber" can do miracles in case you break a priceless Chinese figurine.

I am reading Shantaram by Gregory D. Roberts and I have to say that it's brilliant. It is a true story and will soon be made into film. I highly recommend it.

Iris Hacke meint:
try Val MacDermit "The Mermaid Singing" if you like crime. she is great and has a good style! I also read "Atonement" by Ian McEwan. Yes, I do so beacuse of the movie, but it's fantastic! I don't know anyone who writes as McEwan, it's just amazing.

Mudgius meint:
Hi there, isn't there anybody fascinated, like me, in Robin Hobb and the 'Farseer Trilogy' and 'The Tawny Man'. It's one of the best things that happened in fantasy. i really liked the first ten or twelve books of Robert Jordan, it's fascinating, it's a real pageturner, but nothing compares to the Fool, Fitz and his wolf, never ever. mudgius

P. Böhmer meint:
Hi Everybody out there

I am a student of English literature and at the moment I am reading:
- Middelmarch, George Elliot
- Cranford, Elizabeth Gaskell
- Romeo and Juliet, Shakespeare
- The Taming of the Shrew, Shakespeare
- Lorna Doone, R. D. Blackmore
- The Turn of the Screw, Henry James
- Our Mutual Friend, Charles Dickens
- Der Guote Gerhard, Rudolf von Ems
- Hymnen, Stephan George
- Don Juan, George Gordon (Byron)

My favourite author is Elizabeth Gaskell, closely followed by some other writers of the 19th century.
I have to admit that I am not that fond of contemporary literature.

Ramirez meint:
I just finished "Proven Guilty" of "The Dresden Files" (written by Jim Butcher). Will start the next one with the title "White Night" tonight. Just found out that the next one is to be published April 1st... got to hurry up then, don't I?
I can only recommend this series. It got me from the beginning and only because I had a baby which took up all my time in the beginning did I fall behind.
So if you like a mix of Philip Marlowe with good old Fantasy/fairy tales, you have lots of reading to do...
