I'm reading a Czech play from 1920 called R.U.R. (Rossum's Universal Robots) by Karel Capek, the guy who invented the word "robot". I love sci-fi and this is really interesting.

I’m re-reading the Phantom Tollbooth. I remember my brother reading it when we were growing up, but I don’t think I read it myself until I was in my twenties. It’s a fun book with a lot of clever wordplay, but since it’s aimed at children it’s a quick and easy read.

I'm reading The Handmaid's Tale, by Margaret Atwood. It's a dystopia where a handmaid has to have the babies of the leader of the house she works at, instead of the wife. This particular handmaid, Offred, remembers the world before all this, so we can get a comparison as the story unfolds.

Just finished the new J.D Robb book . . . i am invested in Eve and Roarke :). Started reading the series by chance way back in 2006 when I was still working offshore, got hooked.

Just finished all of Anne Bishops's The Other books. Waiting for the next installment next month. This was a chance encounter from one of the free ebooks from Kobo.

Also waiting on Faith Hunter, Patricia Briggs and Nalini Singh next release. I am obviously into urban fantasy.

But on a sad note, I found out yesterday that one of my favorite authors passed away :( I am going to miss her writing . . .

With college and assigments, I don´t have a lot of time to read, but the little time I have, I try to spend it reading. I read in the train everyday.
Right now I am reading quite several books at the same time.
- The Fear of a Wise Man - Patrick Rothfuss
- A Compilation of Short Stories of Arthur Conan Doyle
- Percy Jackson and The Sea of Monsters
- Under The Wide and Starry Sky
- A introduction to Greek Mithology

Well not reading, but I borrowed an audio book today. It's Mary Higgins Clark's All by Myself, Alone.

I am currently re-reading Endless Night by Agatha Christie. It's a sort of sinister book. My tastes are also very retro.

I love Agatha Christie!

I'm currently reading all the Edgar Allan Poe short stories. I've already read most of them but I felt like reading them again.

Revenge of Dragons - Holly Lisle (Secret Texts part 2). I read the series more than a decade ago, but I thought it was time to read them again.

Miehet Asialla by Tapani Bagge

Short stories about a man who decides to do everything himself to save money. And because (he thinks) he can. It's hilarious and also reminds me of my dad (though he doesn't suck like that).

I've just started Stranger in a Strange Land, by Robert A. Heinlein. It's about a guy who was born in Mars and was raised by Martians, but comes to Earth.
