Hehe...well, I'm in the process of reading my Japanese textbook but I don't think that is what you had in mind.

I tend to read about 3 books at once. I last read the "Chronicles of Narnia" (because of the movie...had read it multiple times as a kid), Terry Pratchett's latest book "Thud", and I resurrected another book from my childhood "Mara" a fiction about how Thutmose came to power when overthrowing Hatshepsut. I've been contemplating starting in on "Les Miserables" which I haven't read for a while, or another of my favourites which is "Count of Monte Cristo" but I'm thinking that right now I'm going to go for brainless books that don't take any of my precious few brain cells away from concentrating on Japanese.

I just finished (well, 5 pages left) "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" from the Chronicles of Narnia by CS Lewis. I've also been reading stuff from Jane Kirkpatrick (5 so far), a historical fiction author from Oregon. Plan to start another of hers on the plane tonight.

I think this book is great and a must read for newbies and experienced alike. He also has a very good book on composition called Learning to See Creatively
