Good books?
    #2785586 - 06/11/04 05:38 PM (13 years, 11 months ago)

Anybody ready any good books recently?

I have a new job, and need somthing to read during lunch. I like Tom Robbins, and might just check out one of his books, but I thought I'd ask what you like, see if you can come up with somthing else.

Tortuous Serpent - Donald Tyson

I'm re-reading the Thomas Covenant Chronicles as well, by Stephen R. Donaldson. The book above though is a book I've just recently read that I enjoyed.

the problem with books is what one person finds immaculatly intresting the other finds overly dull and void of excitment

I definitely recommend George Orwell's 1984!
