So you haven't read the last few books? They are so good! I'm re-reading them now. I think I'm on Erak's ransom (I don't remember which one is which). I think there are like 10 books out now.

Yeah I saw 10 2 weeks ago at Borders. Didn't get it though.

Nope, I own them but haven't read them. :P After book 4 there was a time skip and Will is no longer Halt's apprentice so I was kinda sad. Especially when I found out from a friend that in one of the later books that Halt gets a new apprentice. I don't know, I find change depressing. It's still a great series though. I'll get to finishing it some time. :D

Yeah, but then it jumps backward again! Lol it's out of order for some reason. But I think you were misinformed- halt doesn't get a new apprentice.

Oh really? I could have sworn I read somewhere that Halt picks up a new kid. I must be going crazy :P

I have a month left before school. Maybe I should start reading it again :P

Wondering how I missed this thread before...

I'd say Harry Potter for obvious nostalgia reasons... I enjoy flipping through Twitterature fairly often... I am a great fan of Christopher Hitchens, in particular Hitch-22 and god Is Not Great... and my all-time favorite is Kingsley Amis's Lucky Jim, which is almost unique among books in never failing to make me laugh.

Manga as a genre, it's all I read. Bakuman is currently my favorite series.

Memiors of a geisha, the leviathan trilogy, the uglies saga, the fallen saga, steve jobs biography, neverwhere, and Gregor the Overlander series.

And I read pretty much all of those except for gregor my senior year of high school lol.

And if I included manga...

Yotsuba, Hellsing, Pandora Hearts, Crimson Shell, Maid-Sama, Stepping on Roses, Read or Dream, and Yazakura Quartet.
Without dreams or memories, who are you? Nothing, nothing but a soul without a cause.

Aha! Finally figured out where I knew your avvy from.

Personally I haven't enjoyed reading much lately. Last thing I read was part 2 of the Icewind Dale trilogy.
