    I'm re-reading Stephen Hacking's "A Brief History of Time". It is just as good as I remember. :)

    OMG I LOVED that book! It was sooo great! I'd read it again but I let someone borrow it and never got it back :(
    But right now I'm reading Devices and Desires by K.J. Parker, and it's really great so far, I would definitely recommend it!

    I'm reading on my spare times between home and internship the Art of War by Sun Tzu, a really interesting book for people who like to see thing on a strategic view, not my case, it was more curiousness.

    I am currently reading "Why Evolution is True" by Jerry A. Coyne. I am enjoying it a great deal.

    Those are as interesting as Lotr itself :). Did you know that actually Tolkien spoke 14 languages and (around) 35 different dialects of those? He "invented" an unknown number of languages in fact LOTR beeing only the support for those? \and he didn't liked hobbits?

    I'm reading If you're reading this, it's too late. Yep, that's a book title. It is actually the sequel to The Name of this Book is Secret. Pretty weird titles right?

    Let's revive the thread a bit ;)

    I'm currently reading "The Man Who Mistook His Wife For A Hat" by Oliver Sacks.

    Simply brilliant, although due to the fact that I'm reading it in English, I do have some difficulties in reading it + the medical vocabulary. However, the neurological symptoms described are so interesting that it is a must for the people who are interested in this field.

    I finished reading The Kane Chronicles by Rick Riordan. It was light reading but was definitely enjoyable.

    I started reading online a book named "Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World" by Haruki Murakami, but since I was enjoying it so much, I stopped and I'm going to buy the book as soon as possible, and then continue reading.

    It is one of the most popular works of Haruki Murakami, and although I've heard about it for a long time, just recently I've picked it up.

    (good job reviving this thread, @"BlackDuck")

    I recently finished Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell. It's about a love story of 2 misfits. Though I definitely think that Park isn't one. XD Anyway, it's a good book if you want to reminisce your first love experience. Haha.

    Now, I'm reading Brisingr by Christopher Paolini. The 3rd book of the Inheritance Cycle. A fiction book about Dragons and Riders. I've been reading it for more than a month now (it's not that long, I'm just lazy finishing it. Haha.)
