wow Surroundx thats a huge collection
i admit i am not into Sports, Philosophy, Biology, Classic, Ancient Literature, Astronomy
i rather like fantasy, drama, some real life stories
as i have said before, if a book doesnt grab my attention in at least the first chapter then i know i wont read it at all so i go for ones that catch my attention

It's not that big, considering my read pile is about 50 books! Many people have thousands of books. But I find it isn't the quantity but rather the quality of books in ones library. Books you can read over and over again and never grow bored of them.The Extinction cubit: A database of all recently extinct species: http://cubits.org/TheExtinctionCubit

i've just started to read a textbook on human anatomy and physiology....can't wait to get my kindle coz dad has a heap of books on radiology, sonography, and other medical books...i even down loaded the textbook of surgery.....most people unless they either train in medicine or grow up in the environment wouldn't understand it. i was lucky and my interest formed when i was young as dad is a radiographer and mum is a RN...hospitals were my second home! the radiologists use to sit me on their lap while they reported radiographs....and then i got taught how to read them.Bearded Dragon: 'Yoda'

I'm reading the Game of Thrones books now. Way better than the tv show (and the tv show is nothing short of brilliant).
ive seen ads for the show on cable tv bradchip, looks ok
im almost finished book 3 of the 'Inheritance Cycle' and already dreading reading the final page of the final book
The Jo Nesbø series about P.I Harry Hole is brilliant. My fab is The Snowman, phantom and The leopard. Must reads by fare.
If your looking for a great fantasy read (and I'm very picky) The Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan is fantastic, one of those 'can't put it down, even though I need sleep' series and also, for a great Australian author, Isobelle Carmondy is very good, the Obernetyn series, wasn't really a fan of her other things.

Song of Ice and Fire*, love the show but they ruined it by naming it Game of Thrones thats the first book
dash that is how im currently feeling about these books, ive only a few pages left of book 3 and i refuse to lay down till they are finished so tomorrow night i can start on the final book which i both look forward to and dread because it will mean my 'journey' will end with them as well, this man is a talented writer and its so easy to loose yourself in them and become one with the characters
Thats exactly it!! I hate the feeling its all coming to an end, when all you want to do is keep reading about the lives of the characters your intrigued with!! I'm currently waiting for the next Song of Ice and Fire and the last Wheel of Time books with trepidition as I never want the story to end!
Not real big on the fairies, fantasy or vampires lol.I have found Lee child to be a good read ( he does a series of Jack Reacher novels). Sorta get sucked into them. The worst part is he only releases one a year and and I get through it in 2 days! Another author I always seem to be reading is Michael Connelly ( Harry Bosch ). Definately worth a look.

Just had to bump this for the Stephenie Meyer book The Host and those who loved it.
Movie is coming! I wrote to her ages ago saying she should make a movie of it... so glad she is.

will have to look it up Jande
I finally finished 'The Inheritance Cycle' the other night and when i closed that last book i felt really sad
It was such a fantastic well written story that you couldnt help but feel a part of it
