"Altered Carbon" and "A Feast for Crows" -- Both of which are awesome in very different ways!
 
currently Im reading Peter F. Hamilton's The Reality Dysfunction 
 
"The Twelve" by Justin Cronin, just started it and I'm so excited about it!
 
"Summer Knight", I ended up reading later Dresden files books first, and realized I was missing backstory, so I'm starting over from the beginning. 
 
Communicating with Confidence and Power by Phyllis Mindell,Ed.D.
 
Dance of Dragons - my wife and I both went through all 1100 pages over the past few weeks.
 
The Mask of Destiny (Archer Legacy Trilogy), by Richard Newsome. Just finished reading the book yesterday ;-)
 
The Columbus Affair by Steve Berry
 
just recently finished reading Harry Harrison's "Stainless Steel Rat For President" and currently reading a book a friend wrote.
 
Almost finished James S A Corey - Leviathan Wakes, then on to Caliban's War
 
I'm currently listening to Good Omens. 
 
White Trash Zombie and John Dies at the End. Both were AMAZING!
 
Finished up Leviathan Wakes, now i'm reading The Dragon;s Path that came with the Kindle edition.
 
The Institutional Revolution: Measurement and the Economic Emergence of the Modern World (Markets and Governments in Economic History by Douglas Allen

Ok so it isn't as exciting as the others. Someone has to read it. Sheesh.
 
Anything by Clive Barker sucks me in for a 'cover to cover, can't put it down till I'm done' type of reading venture.
 
I don't read novels very much, so it's sort of a fluke that I just happened to finish reading one.  I just finished reading John Scalzi's Redshirts.  A very quick read, and an amusing story.
 
+Wil Wheaton recently posted a link to the World War Z movie trailer, which spurred me to read the book yesterday. I can't put it down.
 
Dodger by Terry Pratchett. Super engrossing. Loved everything about it.
 
The Ghosts of Belfast, great, easy to read thriller.
 
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. I am sure most of you know it but if not it is a must read for anyone who grew up in the 80's playing D&D and going to the arcade.
 
Existence by David Brin.  Hell of a good read. It's a thinker.
 
Slow Apocalypse by John Varley.
 
Downpour, by Kat Richardson. The lates of the Greywalker series. Was very good. 
 
Finished Cloud Atlas and reread The Quantum Thief (even better the second time) and started on its sequel, The Fractal Prince, which I'm about halfway through with.
 
I rereading (actually listening -- audiobook) The Hobbit.
 
Just Finished And Then There Was None... Brilliance!
 
I am currently reading The Casual Vacancy. It's been a very slow start- lots of back stories to tell. It's starting to pick up a little now!!
 
+Shelley Kimball a friend if mine just gave me that book! I've herd great things about it!!
 
The First Law Trilogy by Joe Abercrombie... was rather meh, not my style of entertainment, the first book was good, but I was expecting some growth in more of the characters than was delivered. Sebastian by Anne Bishop, interesting world from a role players perspective, light fantasy, very slightly erotic fiction, maybe this week I'll read the second book.  Also reading The Stars at War by Steve White and David Weber, Space Opera, just a third of the way into it yet, but seems promising.  I think that that's everything that I read this week.
 
Derek Landy- The Faceless Ones (Skulduggery Pleasant series) 
 
The Dirty Streets of Heaven by Tad Williams 
 
Brian Greene's "The Fabric Of The Cosmos" at the moment and just before this the other books he wrote. I'm addicted

Okay, okay. I'm escaping to the world of middle earth. I'm reading the all four of the Lord of the Rings books. I just finished the hobbit!!!!!
 
True, true... But I can escape to the parts that are finished.
 
Unless you're in Inception. Then you must escape into a place that's still under construction, especially if you are it's architect/carpenter.

The Mongoliad: Neal Stephenson,Greg Bear et al.
 
Night Watch by Sergei Lukyanenko. And yes, I had to copy-and-paste the name of the author. But its worth reading just because its so different from other fantasy books. Next in line? Perhaps the 11th Wheel of Time book. I was one of my favorite series when I was young. But at book 10 I begun counting pages. And thats a bad sign. So I have some 10 year old unfinished business with WoT.

Been rereading some old Heinlein favorites, Time Enough for Love, Stranger in a Strange Land, and To Sail Beyond the Sunset.
 
harry potter huge thumbs up 👍👍
 
+Kaz Black , +Vanilla Poth I thin with the best books you are both right. They can take you away to another world, helping you forget about your own troubles. And through the humanity of the characters we can learn about ourselves. For example, no matter how far down the road to evil you have gone, you can still be redeemed. I love the scene in SWRoTJ where Luke is trying to drag Vader's broken body to a shuttle and Vader tells him to leave him. Luke protests,"but I have to save you!" Then Vader replies, "You already have."
 
THE HOLY BIBLE. The only book that speaks the truth! 
 
James S. A. Corey's Leviathan Wakes and Caliban's War. Mighty fine stuff... if you haven't read these, treat yourself.
 
It is your trust that make you believe that you will escape..it is the trust at the same time that strengthen your idea that this is your conscious effort to get prepare for the coming circumstances.... 
 
Harry potter and the sorcerer stone the begining was so boring, I dropped it for a year!
