      During my free time (hahahahahahahha) on vacation I managed to finish Wicked. Loved it. Was sad that it was over. I need to find the broadway version of the book so I can compare notes. Then I will read the Wizard of Oz and compare even further.

      There is a Dean Koontz audiobook my boss is going to lend me that I can listen to on my way to/from work. Lemony Snicket Book the Fourth is hiding from me, though I am not far into that one.

      I am also on a mission of sorts to read all the books associated with Stephen King's Dark Tower series. That will take me years to complete.

      Dusty, you always have great recommendations for books.
      Anything listed on the park maps as an attraction is fair game for inclusion in the Rally.
      I cannot confirm nor deny the inclusion of any attraction in the Rally.

            Do Dr. Seuss books count towards "What Are You Reading"?

                I am currently reading "The Diamond Throne" by David Eddings -- I read his "Belgariad" and "Malloreon" series when I was in junior high (10 books total, and SO much fun). The Diamond Throne is the first of another 6 books. OK I read a lot of ye olde fantasy novels. Goes along with ye old computer gaming, I suppose.

                I also finished Book the Eleventh of Lemony Snicket ... love love love those books. The movie sucked Jim Carrey spooge. Yeeeeeach.

                Somehow I also got stuck reading Wuthering Heights, though I have no idea why. Those Bronte women are kooky dames.

                Also I am halfway through re-reading Brave New World. I guess I'm going through a junior high revival period.

                Once my brother is finished with the DaVinci Code I guess I should be reading that as well. hehehe I read a lot of books simultaneously, can you tell? I just read the first 100 or so pages of a ton of books and by that time I usually get hooked on one, finish the damn thing, pick up 4 more books, and move onto another. It's a vicious cycle.

                  Amen Brother!! My books are constantly late getting back to the library. Those damn librarians and patrons need to stop telling me about what they read!!

                    Lords of the Sky(Wells) ....kinda struggling with it though. I like the overall story but the writting is not as crisp as I would like.....I keep putting it down and reading other books then I come back to it. So I guess I care about the characters and want to see how it turns out, but reading it sometimes feels like work....

                      on my nightstand right now is Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. i just love these books and believe that they are much better than the movies. i recommend these books to kids of any ages. once you get started on the first one, you are definitely hooked and wont put the book even down. these are well written books by J.K. Rowling.

                        I finished reading.. "No Woman No Cry" by Rita Marley..and was truly inspirational to read a courageous woman!! Now, im begining to start my summer reading a little earlier, and reading "East of Eden" by John Steinbeck.

                              After feeling the need to unwind a bit before I fell asleep, I picked up SKs "Skeleton Crew". So far so good. I am going to try to jump around with the stories this time, the rebel that I am. Short story collections are fun that way.
