    I've read Lian Cheng Jue. Poor Di Yun!

    Xia Ke Xing's quite interesting. The antics of the Snow Mountain Sect (Xueshan Pai) amuse me, though that probably wasn't the author's original intention.

    i agree, ti yun is really a pity! im at chapter 9 right now and plans to finish it before the week ends. do you have all of jin yong's novels? i only lacked book and sword, ode to gallantry, and mt duke (lu ting tsi). but i haven't read all his other novels. i have only read loch, roch, hsds, pai ma xiao xi feng, yuen yang tao, yue nu jian, and dgsd.

    Piers Anthony writing post apoc Sci-Fi... how strange

    The Amtrak Wars: Cloud Warrior
    The Amtrak Wars: First Family
    The Amtrak Wars: Iron Master
    The Amtrak Wars: Blood River
    -Seems like I'm having a post-apocalyptic revival...

    Star Wars The Unifying Force
    -I've read all of of the NJO minus one so I had to see how the Vong story arc ended...

    Conan The Warrior -Seems Conan is pretty smart afterall...

    Martian Tales 1 Princess of Mars
    Martian Tales 2 Gods of Mars
    Martian Tales 3 Warlord of Mars
    -Odd but interesting story about a 17th? century gentleman who is transported to Mars...

    Belgarath The Sorcerer

    the book title is "because i care".
    I can't write a love song the way I feel today, I can't sing no song of hope, I got nothing to say, Life is feeling kind of strange, since you went away, I sing this song to you wherever you are as my guitar lies bleeding in my arms...

    yup, i can't remember when was the last time i posted

    that book is about thinking and looking at things froma a different view. the writer actually challenges you to do that. a fantastic one.

    funny thing is, the writer's name is not on the book. he even came out with this sentence at the last page of the bok.

    "there's no copyright in this book, all i ask is just not to copy wrong"

    see, that is someone......

    I started a couple of books recently, but I doubt I'll be finishing them any time soon.

    The Opposite of Fate by Amy Tan - a book of musings about her own life by one of my favorite authors
    Treason by the Book by Jonathan D. Spence - a historical tale about a treason investigation involving Emperor Yongzheng

    Actually I don't own any of JY's novels, but borrow them from a library.

    Still stuck at chapter 16 of Xie Ke Xing for more than a week cos I've been so busy lately. I haven't read LOCH or ROCH (I've only read the comic version).

    I'm also reading The Nanny Diaries by Nicola Kraus and Emma McLaughlin.

    i just finished girl with the pearl earring by tracy chevalier. it's fiction, but it uses real people as characters. the plot centers around the painter vermeer and his muse. pretty good, but i didn't particularly care for the ending. not that the ending was bad. it just didn't end how i wanted it to. anyhoo, i think they're making a movie out of it.

    The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown.
    It means you got eyes like apostrophes, you dress white, talk black, and drive Jew. So how am I supposed to know what kind of zipperhead dog-munching dink you are if you don't?
