    Heller's catch-22, Erickson's deadhouse gates, frazer's golden bough, and Gray's enlightement's way.
    Oh, i also "read" stochastic process theory for my exams. Not very entertaining, as you can probably understand...

    I'm about to start reading Dark Shadows: The Salem Branch by Lara Parker.
    My mom practically shoved into my hands saying I needed to read it lol (I think she just wants someone to talk about it with )

    *sigh*
    They're racy if you have a very dull sexual history, from what I hear. I've also heard that various BDSM sub-communities are appalled by what's apparently an at times dangerously inaccurate representation of that "racy" behavior. I've heard pleas to not attempt to use them as any sort of how-to unless you want a trip to the ER/morgue.

    As for my own reading at the moment, A Princess of Mars.

    Thanks for info. I'd like to think my sexual history is very far from dull but I'll give the first book a try anyway since I bought the trilogy; if I can't get through it I'll donate them.

    Common Sense and The Rights of Man - Thomas Paine

    50 Shades Darker - EL James

    FTR, the "Shades of Grey" books are OK. I rate them 2 out of 5 stars... and tend to spend more time amused/bemused while reading them than anything. If you are interested in some reviews to check out - with and without spoilers - check out goodreads.com. You can get a good feel of what people like the books you do, and then check out their ratings of these books to give you a better idea of whether or not you want to invest the time. Handy!

    And, yes. Most definitely not to be considered in any way, shape, or form a "how-to" for entering into the BDSM community.

    That one i'm looking forward to myself. Just hope it's not going to be to choppy considering its supposed to be three movies now. There is enough of the cast from LOTR that most of the character's will be the same, especially with the elves and Gandolph.

    Well the third movie is supposedly centered on the stories that happen between Hobbit and LOTR

    I've read it's supposed to be some of the filler at the end of the book but also that some of it is a continuation of the final part of the book carried into the 3rd film. About the only part that seems probale is they are going to go itno more depth with who they actually meet along the way. Can't think of the huntsman's name but the preview I saw recently has either him or Tom Bombadril though I don't recall him (Tom) being in the Hobbit book.
