    So theres DVDs you bought, Movies you watched, last toy(non-MOTUC) you bought...

    What about BOOKS!

    Me: Stephen King's "Under The Dome".

    The Borrowers. Read it to my Zoe from her Nook. Fine writing and an old-timey feel to it. Quote nice, actually. But then I could probably read her the ingredients list on the side of a box of Cheerios and with her curled in the crook of my arm it would be time well spent.

    Just finished the Sherlockian last week, and read (finally) The Three Musketeers just before. Working my way through Sarum by Edward Rutherford right now.

    I just finished re-reading Stephen King's Salem's Lot recently. I'm working on re-reading the Dark Tower saga and I'm following a road map to read all the tie-in books along the way. I woke up this morning with excitement as King's new Dark Tower novel The Wind Through The Keyhole was downloaded to my Kindle. Which is perfect because I need to read it before advancing to the next book in the road map which is Wolves of the Calla.

    I have already purchased the 4th book and I won't be reading something else till I know what shall happen to Roland Deschain & Jake.

    I'm currently reading "Dying of the Light" by George R. R. Martin. I liked the Song of Ice and Fire and thought the plot of Dying of the Light sounded interesting. I'm having trouble with it. It reads like a first novel. He has become a much better writer over the years.

    The Marvelous Land of Oz by L. Frank Baum. I love the Oz series (yes there's more than one book).

    Rhanen, if you like The Waste Lands, the fourth book in the series Wizard and Glass is really going to rock your world! It stands as my favorite of the Dark Tower series and probably tied for my favorite Stephen King book of all time along with The Stand. As I mentioned above, the new Dark Tower book The Wind Through The Keyhole just came out today and I am reading it eagerly. It is set between Books IV and V of the series. It's been solid thus far. I highly recommend picking it up!
