    Literature Thread

    We all know that everyone here plays videogames, and most watch movies, but I'm sure there are plenty of readers here too. If you've got a good read, talk about it here, and just feel free to talk about literature in general.

    At the moment I'm reading a novel by Harry Turtledove called "In the Presence of Mine Enemies." Its an alternate history novel in which Nazi Germany won World War II. At this point in time (modern age), Jews are assumed to be almost entirely eradicated from the earth, but there are many still trying to live on in secrecy within the German Empire, and the story follows a Jewish family doing that. I've only begun to read it, but its pretty good so far.

    I also started Johnny Tremain the other day, and I finished Ballad of the White Horse by G. K. Chesterton for my highschool literature.

    So what have you guys been reading?

    I most recently read Archie Megaman #1-8, packaged in two neat little graphic novels. And this forum. I've fallen out of the habit of voluntary reading, although I used to be a bookworm.

    We've had book threads in the past, but... I guess we don't need to resurrect one of those.

    I recently finished Slaughterhouse Five by Kurt Vonnegut. It was pretty good. It's weird any time there is a protagonist with my name. It's sort of about a time traveler and the book is pretty non linear as he travels in time from being a kid, to being in WW2 to being taken by aliens. It took me way too long to read it.

    Now I'm reading The Princess Bride.

    Finished the hobbit a few weeks ago and don't have another book at the moment. I have ones I want to buy but not much free time to jump into reading them yet.

    I just finished up Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience. Kind of a strange pick for a pleasure read, but I find psychology really interesting. Especially when it's related to positive experiences and happiness.

    Yeah, I think I remember there being one, but it's been awhile.

    Edit: If you're into sci-fi stuff (which Slaughterhouse Five looks somewhat like) you might like Ender's Game.

    The Princess Bride movie was great. +1 for Andre the Giant!

    The Hobbit is the only LOTR book I've read so far. I figured I had to get that one down first if the movie is going to be coming out.
