Default What book are you reading?

So, I used the search function and couldn't find an existing thread about fav books or stuff like that.

Thing is, I often find myself judging about people based on the books they like, since in my opinion you are what you read.

So, I'd like to get to know you guys and that's why I ask you, what are you reading or what's your favorite book so far? and why? ^^

I can't help but feel that a certain adage about books, their covers and judging them applies here.

From your contribution, I can deduce that you like God and Terry Pratchett.

How did I do?

'Small Gods', I did hear good about that one but haven't read it yet. And I find it nice that you re-read books, I do it too^^

Currently, I'm reading The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle, by Haruki Murakami. But the best book I read so far is Kafka on the Shore, same author.

I have difficulty finding books that I enjoy, so I tend not to read.

Most recently, I tried reading The Hunger Games. Put it down (read as: closed the reader because lol physical books) one night, never went back to it.

If plays count, the last text I read fully was The Seagull by Anton Chekov. If not, then Bossypants by Tina Fey.

Damn, you read me like a book. And therefore I can deduce you like me.

Lol I made that mistake too >.> the movie ruined my book. I generally don't like watching a movie before I'm through with the book. Hmm I generally don't like watching movies based on books. It messes up the world I created in my head while reading.

I'm (still) reading Storm of Swords by George R. R. Martin. And, for a class, I'm reading The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom and Children of the Flames; this one doesn't have just one author per se, because it's the account of some of the twins who survived Josef Mengele's experiments in Auschwitz.

Indeed, it's like judging someone based on what kind of music they listen to. Everyone knows only intelligent people listen to classical and only retards can enjoy pop music.

I have no problem with admitting if I missjudged someone but it does help me. Example, I'd rather talk with a girl who reads G.G. Marquez than a girl who reads Danielle Steel >.> (has read Danielle Steel and enjoyed it)

I read Storm of Swords, it's not in my top 10 but definitely worth the time. And now I feel tempted to read Children of the Flames. I find sick experiments on human beings... interesting >.>

Children of the Flames is a remarkable book. Really puts things into perspective and makes you appreciate what you have.

A Game of Thrones.
Men At Arms - Terry Pratchett.
Huntress - Malinda Lo.

Getting through the first two really slowly.

I am reading Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoenix for the second time. So many more great character moments for the characters this time around.
Draco still continues to be the worlds most jealous boy as you can expect.
Spoiler:

And at times, I get so annoyed at how evil Umbridge is that I feel the need to put the book down and cool off. The romance between Harry and Cho is sort of doomed to fail from the start. Harry and Cho were never going to work out. Well, I'm glad Rowling wrote a much better relationship between Harry and Ginny in the next book. Even if Rowling does write about Harry's monster in his chest.

Just started The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. It's a bit confusing so far but it seems like it's going to be amazing as the story goes on.

Seriously though, I'm currently reading the A Song of Ice and Fire Series. Currently 324 pages into book one, A Game of Thrones, and enjoying it immensely.
