Re-reading Sandman Vol. 3 for graphic novels class. I read it a few years ago, but might as well get it fresh in my memory.

Re-reading the Kiesha'ra series by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes (I'm on book two, Snakecharm), as well as the first book in the Sword of Truth series by Terry Goodkind, Wizard's First Rule, and last but not least, I'm reading Leviathan, by Scott Westerfeld. FX is trying to get me to add Steven Brust to my stack. He's there, but I just haven't started reading him yet. I still have three books I'm reading simultaneously, can't add more right now.

I'm about to start The Restaurant At The End of the Universe by Douglas Adams. Which is, for those of you who don't know, the sequel to The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

Reading Epic Encounters: Culture, Media & U.S. Interests in the Middle East since 1945 for my American studies theory class.

Coincidentally enough, we're probably going to read Persepolis for graphic novels class soon. I read most of the first book of it a few years back and just couldn't get into it.

Fun coincidence, though, while discussing the first chapters of Epic Encounters, someone in class started talking about Israeli women in Y: The Last Man and I pulled out my copy of it with pride since we were reading it for graphic novels class this week.

Reading "Bread Givers" for a class. I'm supposed to be done with it already, but I've been distracted.

It's pretty much about a semi-autobiographical story about an immigrant girl in turn-of-the-century New York learning to survive on her own. I've only dedicated one night to reading it and I'm about a fifth of the way through it.

Just started reading "The eye of the World" again. R.I.P Robert Jordan. Going to reread the series up to the point I stopped. I heard the new author for the series is actually pretty good and is doing a great job.

Now that I'm finally able to dedicate time to reading whatever I want, I checked out as many graphic novels from the library as I was allowed (limited to 15 items at a time ), and am re-reading the first volume of "Chew" right now.

Then I'll move on to "Chew" volume 2, volumes 3 and 4 of "Ooku," and then I'll be going through the first seven volumes of "Transmetropolitan."

Then... then, when I've read all of these things by Monday, then I will pick up an actual novel. I've got a nice stack to go through.

"Chew" read.

Going through "Ooku" Volume 3 now, but I might end up just jumping back into "Transmetropolitan." I can't remember how much of it I had read before. I think the first two volumes.

At the same time I'm re-reading "Walking Dead," though I've only got the first three volumes. God, it's going to suck trying to buy the others. It used to be common to find it in the 50% bins at conventions, but with the TV show out, I'm sure everyone's buying it up.

Read "Ooku" 3 and 4, on the short road trip to Vegas I took this weekend.

I started trying to finish "On Stranger Tides," but because it was dark and rainy the entire way back to L.A., my dad insisted I turn the flashlight off as it was distracting him. i

I'll restart "Transmetropolitan" later today. Since I didn't bring them with me, I'll probably spend the morning finishing "Walking Dead" Volumes 2 and 3.

Read "Pinocchio Vampire Slayer," which was put out by Slave Labor Graphics. It's not bad, especially being a short read.

Powering through the first seven books of "Transmetropolitan" now, though I'm reading it while taking breaks cleaning our room.

I have started reading The Towers of Midnight, book 13 of the Wheel of Time. This one looks like it will take awhile.

Read those 7 volumes of "Transmetropolitan" finally. Need to get the 8th one at the library and send away for the other two after that since it seems the library only goes to 8.

Overall I like it. I really disliked Spider in the beginning, but I've grown to like him. Especially when he talks to children. While he can be really arrogant and self-centered, he really gives a shit about what's right and he's so sweet with kids.

Reading "On Stranger Tides" still. I never had the time to finish it.

Picked up "Hero" by Mike Lupica. It's about a 14 year old super hero. I don't really know much else yet. Lol.

Read the first volume of Axis Powers Hetalia and got the second one in the mail yesterday.

I also finally got to renew my library card. SUCCESS!

I've got a lovely mountain of graphic novels to tear through this weekend. Now... where to begin? The suspense is killing me. Perhaps the history of the beat generation as told by Harvey Pekar? Hmmm... Queen and Country? Transmetropolitan volume 8? Ooku volume 5?

Books shall be read!

Finished Hetalia volume 2.

Now I'm bouncing between Ooku volume 5 and Transmetropolitan volume 8.

I'll probably finish off Sandman today since the final volumes were finally on the shelf at the library.

I am reading seven deadly sins by Robin Wassermann.
I reading it because there was LMN movie based on the LMN official movie site for it
Where you purchase the movie

The cast
* Rachel Melvin(Katherine (Kaia) Sellers)
* Dreama Walker (Harper Grace)
* Eric Close(Jack Powell)
* Kirsten Prout (Miranda Stevens)
* Steven Grayhm (Reed Sawyer)
* Jared Keeso(Adam Morgan)
* Emma Lahana (Beth Manning)


The Seven Deadly Sins series from Simon & Schuster features seven morally bankrupt teenagers in a small California town. Each novel revolves around one of the sins and each character's transgressions specific to that sin. They follow the lives of Harper Grace, Beth Manning, Adam Morgan, Kane Geary, Miranda Stevens, Reed Sawyer, Katherine (Kaia) Sellers, and their French teacher, Jack Powell.

The list of the books in the series in order

* Lust
* Envy
* Pride
* Wrath
* Sloth
* Gluttony
* Greed

Anyway I'm about 25% of the way through the 2nd book. I am finding it a good read to see what was missing from the LMN movie and so far a lot. I got whole collection on eBay for around 32 dollars including shipping.

Just finished re-reading the Scott Pilgrim series. Now, I'm out of books. Maybe I'll pick up the Clockwork Angel.

It's a book that that takes place in the world of the series I was reading a while ago (the Immortal Instruments), but a generation before. It seems pretty interesting, so I'll borrow it from my friend at work

Finished Towers, excellent read and I want the last book already. Also went back to the Lincoln & Child books. I am mostly sticking to the Pendergast novels, so I skipped Ice Limit but I did read Thunderhead because of overlapping characters. Now I am on The Cabinet of Curiosities.
