    BATMAN
    BATMAN: GOTHAM KNIGHTS
    PLANETARY
    SUPERMAN
    SUPERMAN/BATMAN
    TRANSFORMERS: GENERATION ONE -- [Volume 3]
    SUPERMAN: BIRTHRIGHT
    SPAWN
    ASTONISHING X-MEN
    EMMA FROST
    MARVEL KNIGHTS SPIDER-MAN
    PULSE, THE
    PUNISHER (MAX)
    SECRET WAR
    ULTIMATE FANTASTIC FOUR
    ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN
    ULTIMATE X-MEN
    ULTIMATES, THE

    The last book I read was 'Poker Wisdom of a Champion' by Doyle Brunson.

        I just read a collection of short stories by Jean-Paul Sartre entitled "The Wall"

        "The Gagne T-shirt jersey comes with a complimentary can of gasoline and a set of matches."

          I read hitch hiker's guide to the galaxy about a month ago, it's pretty funny.

          I like my defensive tackles like I like my women: well over 300 lbs.

              Which series are you reading? I read about the first 13 or so Xanth books but the series never ended. I think it's in the mid-20s now.

              The Incarnations of Immortality series is good as was the Phaze series (I think that's the series name).

                I've only read one Atwood book, The Handmaid's Tale, and really enjoyed it. Are her other books worth reading? I felt like she writes more women's fiction so I haven't tried any of her other books.

                  I read a play recently. The Importance of Being Earnest. Funny and very witty. And I just started Zen and the art of Motorcycle Maintinance (sp?).
                  Sprite? Good. You mind if I have some of your tasty beverage to wash this down with?

                    A Book of Five Rings
                    The Bible

                    Funny how much the two have in common, in a way...
                    ...And [sic 'he'] is given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth....

                        Yeah, it is more of women's fiction, with her subject matters....but the writing itself is really good, so i think it's worth it. then again, i am a woman, so who knows. Uggh, now i gotta get back to work. huge manuscript on my desk and a script - and here i'd just gotten the pile down....stupid work, won't let me play on the boards.

                          I read the Stand a couple of weeks ago. And a series by Robert Jordan "The Wheel of Time" not too long ago. It was pretty good. I am reading a fantasy series by Martin now called "A Song of Ice and Fire". It is good.

                              The best book i've read in a while was "Sleep No More" by Greg Iles. It was really suspenseful. I couldnt put it down and ended up reading it in two days
