Just recently finished the four-volume Hyperion Cantos by Dan Simmons. If you enjoy science fiction, you should definitely read this.

Do comics count? I'm reading through Fables currently, comics-wise.

Book-wise I'm reading 'The Remains of the Day' by Kazuo Ishiguro.

Grapes of Wrath(Steinbeck) currently. Just finished The Great Gatsby(Fitzgerald) and Great Expectations (Dickens). The G.G. is much easier to read compared to Great Expectations; highly recommend it.

I'm currently reading book number 3 of The Accursed Kings series by Maurice Druon. (translated from French to English)

Really happy to have discoverd this, it's my one of my favourite series so far, if not the best!

It's about the hundred year's war between France and England. You can say it's the real life Game of Thrones basically, it has a lot of intriges and conspiracies. Bankers and high players in the field that are using the royal family as their pawns, such as the count of Valois and the Lombard family. It's a bit difficult to know who is who sometimes, cause practically everybody is called "Charles", "Philip" and "Louis". But that's the thing, it all really happened, it features real life people such as Louis X and Marguerite of Burgundy. It's a must read for history buffs or people who like non-fiction set in the middle ages.
