    JP is still one of my favorite books, and the Lost World book has pretty much a completely different plot than the movie.... and it's realy good too

    I just finished "Odd Thomas" (see the Dean Koontz thread), and have started "The Face", the one he just published prior to OT. Turns out I'd never read it, as I was waiting for the paperback edition and caved in early.

    I started reading Jude the Obscure, by Thomas Hardy a few days ago, I'm nearly done. It's quite good, in my opinion.
    I still haven't picked it up yet. Just stuck at the part when his Part 1 of his Great Expectations has wrapped up.

    I'm tryin' to pick up Lord Of The Rings, but people are saying it's hard to understand from the book... Tryin'.....

    I'm trying to slog through The DaVinci Code still. It's not capturing me at all, so I'm going to just put it down and come back to it later.

    Tomorrow (thank you, Santa), I'll have the new Paretsky's Warshawski, Carol O'Connell's Mallory, Reich's Tempe Brennan and I think the new Linda Fairstein and the Nora Roberts/JD Robb dual book.

    I started to re-read My Antonia by Willa Cather. I noticed that I am almost always posting books that I am either re-reading or just skiming through. I am really reading The Halfling's Gem by R.A. Salvatore pretty thoroughly.

    I'm reading Fall on Your Knees by Ann-Marie McDonald. I'm not sure if I like it, parts of it are very disturbing, but I notice I have trouble putting it down. It's not a light read at all.

    1984...George Orwell Just started I'm not sure if I'm going to like it. Everyone either says it's so boring they didn't even finish it or says it was one of the greatest books ever. I liked Animal Farm though

    I've been trying to get through 1984 too! I missed it when I was in school, never got assigned it, so figured I'd finally check it out. I don't actually find it boring -- it's quite interesting -- but I was at my mother's house when I started reading her copy, so I've just left it there and only read it when I'm visiting. I think it's become such a cultural reference that I *have* to read it.

    Seabiscuit: An American Legend by Laura Hillenbrand

    Been pretty interesting so far and I'm not a big non-fiction reader.
