Got a delivery from Amazone yesterday and could put the following books on my to-read stack:

Dead until Dark
The Spiderwick chronicles "The Field Guide"
The Gathering

I'm looking forward to reading them so I have to rush through "Wings of time" which is not so good but I have to read it tho.

I just finished "Pale Fire" by Nabokov and "Mulliner Nights" by Wodehouse.

I'm off on an eight-day shoot with lots of times in airports and on planes, so I've packed "Catch-22" by Heller, "Main Street" by Lewis, and "The Loved One" by Waugh.

I read this books:

Harry Potter and the Order of Phoenix in English because I want better oneself speaking/reading/understanding that language

LP-1 is a linuxbook in preparation for a certificate

Höhenrausch from Ildikó von Kürthy: I'm sorry, but I don't know the english vokabulary for "Höhenrausch", but it is a funny novel.

Ciao

I have been browsing through the classic books online sites on the internet. I am amazed at how many classic books there are that can be read online. I've listed four or five to start with. "The Forsyte Saga," "Black Beauty", 'White Fang" by Jack London, "War And Peace" and "Girl From The Limberlost". I know, lol, I've chosen quite a variety, but there are so many I want to read and now I can read them at my leisure.

Well the book is getting better and better. After 150 pages I have a hard time putting it down. Who would have thought?
