Currently reading the Ender's Shadow series - just finished the first one, and have no plans to stop here.

Just prior to this I read the Twilight series, and felt dirty the entire time. It was the fear of getting busted doing something extremely unmanly, but I loved them nonetheless. :laugh:

Re-reading "A Game of Thrones", the first book in the "A Song of Ice & Fire" series by George RR Martin. Reading them slowly so that I'll be finished just in time for the HBO adaption that's casting now and filming in October. :)

Best fantasy fiction I've ever read.

I'm currently reading Tom Clancy's Net Force and Michael Crichton's Sphere.

Rainbow six by Tom Clancy
and Splinter cell Checkmate (read one at school and one at home)

Rainbox Six is a great book. (Y) I re-read it every now and again.

Just finished reading Jon Krakauer's Into the Wild which I liked a lot more than the movie. The book fleshes out certain characters that were only briefly mentioned in the movie. I'll pick up Michio Kaku's Einstein's Cosmos next.

I'm also studying Jeremy Silman's The Amateur's Mind which is a really good chess book in my opinion.

BIg Clancy fan -

I have many of his 1st Editions autographed - but Rainbow Six was good, and the net force stuff.

But my favorite is "Without Remorse"
