Ploughing through A Game of Thrones. About 545 pages into it and very much enjoying it, but ye gods there's one character who's so stupid* they make my teeth each.
* As in the actual character is stupid, not that they're unrealistic or out of place or anything.A brave heart and a courteous tongue. They shall carry thee far through the jungle, manling.

I just finished Name of the wind by Patrick Rothfuss (Redfoot?). Enjoyable read all the way through.

Bought one of the new Kindle things recently, and find this is really helping me blitz through these.

Just started reading Ready Player One. It's full of 'nerd culture' references from the 1980's and surrounding years, and takes place primarily in a massive online virtual reality MMO. It's not terribly well written, and it's quite silly, but it's still a fun read.

Right now I'm going through a "classical literature" phase, with Anna Karenina and to a lesser extent Don Quixote, both are surprisingly readable. I also like to dip into the Warhammer 40k Hourus Heresy series because stuff gets shot a lot.

frigging hilarious. I actually enjoy it even tough I found couple of other TP books boring.

Also reading A Game of Thrones. I watched the show, but still wanted to read the book before moving onto the second. Pleasantly surprised by how close they were able to keep the adaptation, and the changes I have picked up on seem like better choices than what was done in the book.weekendwarrio.rs - We've got more games than time...

I'm just starting A Dance with Dragons really enjoying the series, i've devoured the first 4 in the last 3 months or so, but i'm worried after so much rapid reading i'll be waiting like 6 years for the next one.
I'm also looking forward to the final book of the Eragon series, i know they're immature and for teenagers and everything but i really like them. (or at least i used to)

@Bracket yea we can hope but they do seem to be getting farther apart and it says in my copy of feast for crows that he planned to release dance with dragons the next year in 2006 since he'd pretty much written it all already then decided to divide it into two books (north and south) since it was too big. I suppose he was busy with the TV series and the games and stuff?

Edit: This is the book I'm reading -

Finished Trudy Canavan's "Black Mage"-trilogy two days ago.
The first two books are well-written if a bit one-dimensional on the characters. The third book tries to give all characters depth, and fails horribly by making me question if this had been written by the same author. Ugh.
I would love to read Tamora Pierce's Song of the Lioness again - my very first fantasy book as a kid -, but I can't find it anywhere near. I just remember really awesome characters and dialogues!My games-related Twitter: VexingVision

I just finished reading David Weber's 'Honorverse' series again. All 16 novels. You can get the first book in the series, On Basilisk Station, for free as part of the Baen Free Library.
I think Baen Books is a pretty cool guy. eh sells DRM-free ebooks and doesn't afraid of anything.
