    Here are the following books I plan on reading:
    1. The graphic novel version of The Last Unicorn (library book)
    2. Ozma of Oz by L. Frank Baum

    and possibly some other books (not sure what though, depends on my mood).

    Currently Reading book 11 in the Sookie series and Stephen King "Full Dark, No Stars" (got both from the library and the Sookie book is kind of weak compared to the others so I've been jumping back and forth.)

    The last book that I got to finish was Busta Toons: Unofficial Cartoon Guide to He-Man, about a half week ago.

    What about BOOKS!

    I am a huge book worm...I can't be the only one...

    Be it one of those ancient paper bound published books, downloads on your NOOK...

    What's the last book you read!?

    Me: Stephen King's "Under The Dome".
    MASSIVE...GREAT...last S.K. book I read was Christine 20 years ago...I was really surprised on how well written it was!
    Loved Under the Dome - Showtime is making a mini-series of it that I'm looking forward to!
    I just finished The Hunger Games Trilogy. Getting ready to start Battle Royale by Koushun Takami.

    I was a big fan of the Oz books - the Baum ones, the Thompson ones, and others. I think that my favorite Baum one is Glinda of Oz.

    I'm currently re-reading The Hunger Games series and then I'm going to start The Game of Thrones series. I love the show, so I'm excited to read the books.

    Currently reading Dan Brown's Angels And Demons. I must admit, it's better than I thought it would be. I'm fascinated by the subject matter and him being a controversial author helps.

    Just finished The Fall of Hyperion by Dan Simmons. It is a part of the Hyperion Cantos. If you like SF I definitely recommend it. Start with Hyperion, and before you know it, you'll be hooked.

    I personally like The Patchwork Girl of Oz. And I just realized I came from Widget (which I hate) to Court Magician (which I love because I love Orko).

    Working on World Without End, by Ken Follett. I really enjoyed Pillars of the Earth, and I've had this copy sitting around forever (it was my mom's), so I figured I'd give it a go.

    I can honestly say that the Star Trek books have simply gotten better over the years. Especially since the last few years they've really worked on making sure the books don't contradict each other and in many cases are linked in some ways.



    We first saw the Department of Temporal Inevestigations in the Deep Space 9 episode Trials and Tribble-ations. These books do an awesome job of filling in who they actually are, and their dedication to preserving the timeline. This books gives us a look back at how the DTI finally came about and how Kirk and the Enterprise fit in, and they aren't kidding when everything in the DTI world starts with Kirk. LOL

    Just finished "Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Theif" about 2 weeks ago, and am currently about halfway through "Sea of Monsters" now I'm also most of the way through The Chronicles of Narnia, and about a third of the way through "The Black Cauldron" (yes, I read "The Book of Three" first).

    I love children's literature. Especially reading it with an adult's (well, somewhat) experiences and outlook.

    The Patchwork Girl of Oz is good, too. If you're interested in delving into Oz's history, The Giant Horse of Oz is pretty good, too.

    The Bret 'Hitman' Hart autobiography and I REALLY enjoyed it! I'd recommend it to anyone with even the slightest interest in 80s/90s wrestling.

    Bret Hart's my favorite wrestler and I found that to be one of the best of the many wrestlers' autobiographies I've read.

    Finished the "Percy Jackson & The Olympians" series about 3 weeks or a month ago, and started on A Lion Among Men by Gregory Maguire. I read the first two "Wicked" books when there were only 2, and finally found a decently-priced used copy of the third (and subsequently fourth) in the series. This one was a little slow getting into, but now that I'm into the "meat and potatoes" of the book, it's a lot faster-going.

    The other day I finished reading Professor Woggle-bug and the Frogman of Oz. I enjoyed every moment in it.

    Just finished Wayne of Gotham by Tracy Hickman. It's a Batman novel that goes deeper into the past of Bruce's parents. I was intrigued by many of the plot twists, but it is an overall awesome book.
