What are you reading?

I figure this site needs a thread on just good old fashioned lounge chat.

And I'm curious how cultured you all are. Anyone reading anything interesting right now?
I'm currently working on "The Malazan Book of the Fallen" series.
And am thinking about rereading "The Coldfire Trilogy" Or something from Margret Weis.
I also recently finished "The Wheel of time." And I'm man enough to admit that I cried at the end.

I am alternating days re-reading the Mitch Rapp series and The Common Law in Colonial America: Volume II: The Middle Colonies and the Carolinas, 1660-1730.

I have a book on order I hope to get tomorrow:

The Rarest Blue

non-fiction, about the search for the lost recipe for tekelet. (or is it teleket?) the special color from the book of numbers that jews are supposed to wear and use in the temple.
Thanks from Sabcat

Love the Character Mitch Rapp!!!! Such a shame that we Vince Flynn.........

Also like the Character Cotton Malone from Steve Berry, he has some quite interesting books that combine history and some interesting conspiracy theories.

I also like the King and Maxwell books from David Baldacci, although the TNT series sucked!!!

I love to read Robert Jordan, Wheel of Time!!

And Terry Goodkind Sword of Truth!!!!

Check out Bookbub if you have an ereader, they offer great deals on books, free or for under a couple of bucks each day!!!

I could go on some more but, this is just my taste!!!

Yes! It is the best of all the king works. It actually ties other books in. Shows that the publishing co. Paied Him to write so many books a year or what ever and he could still tie them all together.

As a novelist that is beautiful.
