I am almost done with Fulgrim, looking forward to reading 1984.

Done, gonna start on 1984 tonight.

I am ordering some more books this afternoon, in case I run dry.

I just got done with ROBOTA. It was an okay read, but the writing was... wierd. Like it had been translated from another language without bothering to actually make it understandable for Americans. I got the general gist of it, but it was confusing. Thankfully, it was one of those books with full-page paintings to show what's happening, so I understood it well enough. >_>

Also, I read a book called Gnomes. It's sort of a guidebook on Gnomes (not those wussy DnD Gnomes, I mean full fledged Lawn Gnomes!), their habits, their relationships, ancient primitive Gnomes, the reason why they wear their giant cone hats, even why they shake their head alot. Has some artistic nudity, nothing bad though. Not nearly as bad as some of the stuff Picasso did, and many other older artists. But, anyway, it was funny in an odd, scientific way.

As a side note, until I read this book, I had no idea that there were evil, Siberian Gnomes.

Oh!  I have that book!

Is it the one where the gnomes have red hats and blue clothes?

Just finished reading Halo: The Fall of Reach. Great book for the people who appreciate the storyline in the Halo games. I'm going to read another soon.

This is true. I am only starting the second one, myself, but I read it covertly in nearly every class. Got it recommended by he newspaper adviser, who was the one who also showed me The ScrewTape Letters. That man has excellent taste.
