  • Books you've read recently?

    Just wondering what the good people of Broncomania have been reading lately.

    I myself just recently read Harry Potter and The Half-Blood Prince and Eragon.

    Both very good books, Eragon kind of reads like a defective clone of The Lord of The Rings books but thats not really a bad thing.

      The prequel to the Wheel of Time series, can't remember the name.

      Before that War and Peace.

      Before that... I think I went through the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy series.

        That's funny, I just finished the first book of the Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy...

        Before that I read A Farewell to Arms.

            I just finished "The Long Dark Tea-time Of The Soul" by Douglas Adams (author of the Hitchhikers guide series)

            This is an unrelated story but I have read 7 different books by Adams and I put this one narrowly behind the original Guide.

              That might be my favorite all-time book, and at worst it's top 5!
              I just finished reading Oliver Twist about a month ago...
              I started The Idiot by Dostoyevsky a few weeks ago...I'll be reading it for a little while probably.

                  I never end up reading a whole book... I do not have the time or the patience for it...

                  I read almost all of "Ideas of the Great Philosophers" by Sahakian

                  and before that "Blood Sisters" by Marilyn Yalon, which is a collection of diaries from women who lived during the French Revolution... It was research for the novel I am writing...

                  I think the last book I read in it entirity was "Blood and Gold" by Anne Rice...

                        i finished dostoyevsky's "the possessed" a few weeks ago. he's one of my favorites.

                        after that i started "more guns, less crime" but it was a bit too statistic intensive for me so i abandoned it for now.

                        currently i'm working on "the odyssey"

                          I love the Odyssey. I had to read it in high school, and honestly that was one of very few that I have reread since then. I am actually crossing my fingers that they will remake the movie on the heels of Troy's success. But only if Sean Bean gets to play Odysseus again.

                            I recently read Prozac Nation by Elizabeth Wurtzel.

                            The Browns are gone; I'm not a fan of the Impostors

                            The real Browns are in Baltimore, see?

                              i knew the general story, but had never read it. it's great. i'd love to see another movie (i think there already is an old one). but unlike troy, i'd prefer they put the gods into it. taking the gods out ruins the story for me. not that i didn't enjoy the story as presented in troy, its just that i prefer the original.
