As much as I love BNW, I haven't read all that much sci-fi (Well, I have read Stranger in a Strange land and I love that book too!). I guess I should change that.

I have not read that many Sci-Fi books, either. As much as I would like to, work, video games, comics, fan art and sleep take a lot of my time. :lol:

Then you might like Leiji Matsumoto's work. Each one is set in a slightly different universe, sometimes acknowledging things that happened in other series, but sometimes with different versions or ommiting things like character meetings and deaths.

So far, I have only seen Queen of a 1000 years (awesome series) and Harlock Saga. I hope to one day watch the rest of his work.

Does class reading count? I think it does. I've started The Hitchhiker's Guide to Life Cycle Assessment. I'm taking a class on life cycle assessment this fall (that is, the methodology of measuring environmental and/or health impacts of products or services from cradle to grave, as it were). I have to do a project for this class, and it may turn into a thesis and it may involve LCA and video games...

In this case, I am.

I'm reading Suttree, by Cormac McCarthy, which is simultaneously one of the saddest, darkest things I've ever read and one of the most hilarious, and Landnamabok, the early book on the settlement of Iceland.

I just finished Before I Go To Sleep, by S.J. Watson, last night. It was very good, it took real effort for me to put it down every night and go to sleep (har har). I wouldn't necessarily say it was scary, or even creepy, but until I got to the end, it definitely left me with a unsettled feeling throughout.

Just so I know what people are talking about when they talk about the Game of Thrones tv show, I've been reading the song of Ice and Fire books. I'm currently in the middle of Storm of Swords.

They're definitely good, but I don't know if they're worth the massive praise they good.

Still waiting for Martin to finish Game of Thrones before I start! Right now I'm reading The Incredulity of Father Brown and skimming through the Quran again. I randomly picked out Al-A'raaf, I really enjoyed that one because of its description of the Islamic creation story and the origin of Iblis, the Satanic figure, as well as its depiction of the prophets.

After getting Bill Nye's new book Undeniable, I plowed through it in 3 days. Great book, easy read but still very informative, and I swear sometimes I was reading it while hearing his voice in my head. I even caught more than a few references to his TV show back in the 90s.

I also recently finished Guns, Germs and Steel and The Lost World.
