yeah tell us some good books you have read. also dont post gay fantasy books that r really geeky and r like the game 'warhammer' (LOTR is an exception)

Lotr, J.R.R Tolkien - i'd say its one of the most popular books in history, with a fucken huge fanbase.

After The First Death, Robert Cormier - just read it in english. very fine suspense/action/terrorist novel thats only 230 pages. i suggest that one.

point being for thread: i hate gay fantasy novels that r really geeky and that arent Middle Earth related hahaah

You dont like FANTASY? How can you not?? Fantasy books are not like warhammer. Warhammer is a screwy kids war game, with very little to do with anything in the Fantasy genre.

Tank girl. A bunch of comics and then a movie. Hell funny. Yay!
Anything by Edgar Allen Poe. He is the god of poetry.
Hitch Hikers Guide, and all its following books, plus The Long Dark Tea Time Of The Soul and Dirk Gentlys Holistic Detective Agency. ANYTHING by Douglas Addams, basically.
Angela's Ashes.
Anything by Steven King. I recommend The Dark Half.
Anything by Anne Rice. Memnoch the Devil is good.
Anything by Cory Daniels or Sara Douglas, and im tellin' you, fantasy is GOOD.
The Sword Of Truth Series. Again, fantasy, but VERY well written.

Oh yeah...and Harry Potter is NOT a fantasy book, its a goddam childrens book! Ack!
Okay, so you prolly all hate me now. Meh.

Insult warhammer here you are trending a dangerous line.

But you want good books what books are there apart from fantasy and sci-fi or some comedy here is additions to Jessy-chan's list that are also good reads:

The view from the mirror series by Ian Irvine
The Fionavar Tapestry By Guy Gavriel Kay
Before and After by Mathew Thomas (very funny look at my sig for part of blurb)
"The sheep shall be the first sign.
Those that frolic and hop will detonate with great concussions,
The strongest glues shall not hold them, their suffering will go unheeded,
Until the great Triangles depart."

yeah sparks u should really read it, its really fucken good, but takes a chunk out of ur pocket buying it.

lol warhammer was an example, because it reminds me of all those fantasy type war books that r really gay and geeky.

hahaha theres a shop called 'games workshop' that just sells warhammer, and u paint ur stuff or whatever. fuck hahha me and my friends go there for a laugh and start playing. we say 'this one marches, this one marches, this one...*measures figurine* ...this one stands still.' (thats talking about the figurines), and we make up shit that theres a king, and hes always last to survive, but u dont know who it is until u kill all the others...its random. hahaha and all the ppl in the shop stare at us and say 'ur all weird' hahahaa man thats gold

yeah hitch hikers guide to the galaxy is mega cool as well as the rest of the series. if u want a proper sci-fi action book read ice station and area 7 by matthew reiley.
and some good fantasy books are from the dragonlance chronicles by margaret weis and tracy hickman. they r great and apparently the main storyline and most of the heroes adventures were created thru games of dungeons and dragons played by the authors and their friends. LOTR rules

that is all
next on fox: Slow Children, Fast animals.

hmm, I read a lot, but who knows if any of the books would interest you.

~The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath- the story of a woman's mental breakdown
~Flags of Our Fathers by John Bradley (I have no idea if this is out in countries other than America)- the story of life and fighting on Iwo Jima for American soldiers during WW II as told by one of the famous flag raisers's sons
~Macbeth, Taming of the Shrew, King Lear, Romeo and Juliet, and Julius Ceaser by William Shakespear
~Go Ask Alice by Anonymous- the diary written by a young girl during her addiction to drugs and her times of running away and adventures to acquire the drugs she craves

there are so many more, but I will not waste your time with my senseless babble about them. It would be neverending.

Yes, 10 Things is a fairly good movie. I haven't seen O yet, but I have been planning on it. I was only forced to read Romeo and Juilet and even then it wasn't even forcing me, I read it happily. haha, but I'm just a pretty big theatre nerd. I've never read Othello, but maybe I will. ~shrugs~ Right now I'm trying to read A Woman Destroyed by Simone Debeuvoire, but it is translated from french so some of the phrasing is slightly choppy. Hopefully it improves.

*nods* Yeah, The Bell Jar is excellent! So is the femminen mystique, a femminest book. Shakespeare was a mastermind, and I like to think I have read the bulk of his works- we have them at home.
Im a BIG reader, more than most, and...wel...yay my geekoidness! And...and...*thinks* Well, the anarchists cookbook is good *laugh* Do any of you know what that is? Myeh.
More later. I have a performance in 10. See you!
