At the moment I’m reading Sky Island.
I’m reading The Story of the Amulet, by E. Nesbit. I read it a loooooong time ago and I hardly remember it, so it sounded like a good re-read.
I’m about two-thirds of the way through The Fellowship of the Ring, which has been a lot of fun to re-read.
Currently reading? too many things…
–Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell (historical fiction/fantasy set in the Napoleonic Wars)
–Northanger Abbey (which so far I like a great deal more than Mansfield Park and P&P)
–The Elements of Style (why did I never learn these things in school?)
Hrm…not quite as much as I thought.
Well… technically I’m reading The Fellowship of the Ring for the first time on my own (my mom read it to my sisters and I before the movies came out). But to be quite honest, it’s boring me a little bit. I need something new to read. Or I might read the DKC again, in preparation for Dragonlight.
When I was younger, I found it very difficult to read my way through the Lord of the Rings, so I understand completely, Lanna! I ended up getting them on audio (read by one of my favorite narrators) and that worked much better.
I’ve got just another four chapters left in The Fellowship now, so I’ll probably finish it up tomorrow.
Alyosha, I’ll have to try Northanger Abbey. It’s one I haven’t read yet, but I’ve liked the other Jane Austen’s, Mansfield Park particularly.
I’ve just started re-reading The Fellowship of the Ring recently. I’m planning on re-reading the other three parts of The Lord of the Rings too.
Wow. Lots of people reading Fellowship!
Well, I’m not reading Fellowship. I’m reading DragonQuest and Indian Captive by Lois Lenski.
I just noticed that I said I was planning on re-reading the other three parts of The Lord of the Rings. That should be the other two parts.
I finished Sky Island and now I have to decide what to read next!
I’m working my way through Howard Pyle’s “The Story of King Arthur and His Knights.” Very, very good.
Then I plan to re-read the Door Within Trilogy, re-read the first three DK novels and read the fourth one for the first time, finish up a mystery that I’m half-way through, read a new Howard Pyle and. . . .erm . . . then re-read two Louisa May Alcotts.
Now I’m reading “The Story of King Arthur and His Knights.”
Started “Men of Iron” by Howard Pyle.
I’m through The Two Towers and on to The Return of the King!
