    I'm (still) reading "The Bear and the Dragon" too. But, I like "Rainbow Six" better.

    Currently being forced to read Shakespere's MacBeth.

    People actually read for pleasure? You've gotta be kidding me... ;)

    Not reading anything at the moment. I'll be starting Lord of the Rings as soon as I get it from my boyfriend.

    What the hell makes you think I read?

    Other than GTP, I rarely read, but I can tell you that my favourite novel is Newsweek.

    Whoa, people still read that book? I picked it up,(actually, the Hobbit, started reading it(got to about page 50 probably), then lost the book somewhere on my night stand/desk thingamabob... Your phrase gave me an interesting idea for a new topic... Perhaps it's already been asked, but times change...

    oh, and im re-reading the MEG series (MEG, The Trench).

    I only read books that have high levels of disembowelment/gore:D And having a book based on a 70 foot great white on the loose sure get the juices flowing.

    I'm about halfway through rereading The Return Of The King after about 20 years away from the four-book trilogy.

    Before that I read The Bear And The Dragon which was pretty good despite Clancy's self-indulgent use of his own novels as a sopabox.

    Next I think I'm going to read Sarum, though I have a non-fiction book about Stonehenge I may read first.

    See Spot Run. Next week I plan on reading Hop on Pop. Dr. Seuss is a genius.

    Oh and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn for school. I think I might read 1984 when I'm done with that.

    I have to admit to sort of swearing off of Clancy for a while.
    I've read "Rainbow Six". However, I was begining to find John Patrick Ryan a little boring.
    My wife picked up "The Bear and the Dragon" and "Red Rabbit". I may have to give T. C. another shot.
    I'm currently reading Grisham. "The Summons".
    Then I have "Red Dragon" by Thomas Harris.
    "Paradise Lost" by J. A. Jance, and several others.
    I have a store near me that sells paperbacks for a buck, and Hard cover novels for $3-5. I will have to stay out of there for a while. $10 will keep me reading for about 6-8 weeks, if I stay with Paperbacks.

    I've played Rainbow Six, Ghost Recon, Urban Operations, and Raven Shield. Though, I don't have a chance to play them often.

    I too, am being forced to read Macbeth. Though, we read it out loud in class and act out some of the scenes, which is a total riot in my class. So, it's not totally boring. :)

    I'm currently reading Stephen King's It. It's got 1000+ pages, and I'm only up to page one hundred and something, but some pretty gory scenes have already popped up. Typical Stephen King, I suppose.
