Hmmm... what books are you not reading now, is usually the better question with me.

Let's see, currently lying around in various stacks, among them Amin Maalouf, The Crusades Through Arab Eyes; Joel Levy, The Secret Societies Bible; Gustav Schwab, Die schönsten sagen des klassischen Altertums; Paul Cudenec, The Anarchist Revelation; Beatriz Graf, Longo maï -- Revolte und Utopie nach '68; the I Ching, sure.

And then some

- I'm currently reading The Battle For North America by Francis Parkman.
- It is really long, but very interesting and challenging.

The Battle For North America is chronology for The French & Indian wars that began in the late 1500's and ended in the mid 1700's. It accurately and colorfully records everything from the enterprises of La Salle to the honorable James Wolfe's epic battle on The Plains of Abraham.
Captivating and Shocking accounts of the brutal Five Nations Indians will have you speechless while the description of the contemporary battle strategies will interest the military enthusiasts.
Over a 200 year period and from Acadia to Texas, British, French, and Native American alike fought for their cause with great courage, misery, glory, treachery, diplomacy, and consequence know as The Battle For North America.

I take it that's the cover blurb?

the brutal Five Nations Indians


Hmm, don't believe everything you're told, now.

from Acadia to Texas, British, French, and Native American alike fought for their cause with great courage, misery, glory, treachery, diplomacy, and consequence


etc. "Know[n] as The Battle For North America," one wonders is it known as such by e.g. those natives?

I see now that came across as an ambiguous statement: what I meant was not to boast that there's hardly anything left unread by me; but rather that I tend to collect piles of books that end up lying around in various states of unreadness

Misery by Stephen King, his epic thriller series are superb books. He is a great writer but sometimes I find it takes too long for anything major to happen so I'm a slow reader ;~;

The Shadow Dragons, James A. Owen

Any series with Tolkien, Charles Williams, and C. S. Lewis as the main characters is obviously good.

It's been a while since I've read any books.. But I really should pick up on some. I love Sci-Fi, adventure and psychological suspense/thriller.. Though I could pretty much read anything.

Anyone have any suggestions on what would be a great read considering my genres?

I'm planning on reading The Game Maker's Apprentice by Jacob Habgood and Mark Overmars.
I bought it and it's staring at me, wondering when I'm going to finally open it!

Why can't I decide to do it?
I have a game in mind (it's an Uncharted Waters sequel), the characters are developed, the battle mode is on paper, the story is almost complete, I read about 40 books on the subject and things revolving around it but I'm scared to start! Why?!? :O
