I just started to re-read "Dead until Dark" I just finished "Dead and Gone," both by Charlaine Harris. I also just finished out the "Fruits Basket" series, it was the first manga I read and I loved it.

I just finished Hyperion (I really liked it, but there's not a neat end so I need to get the next book in the series soon) and have started Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert and am re-reading Life of Pi.

I love Life of Pi! I refer to all tigers now as Richard Parker.
But anyway, right now I am finishing up Mary Shelley's The Last Man
and have just started Stephen King's The Green Mile

I am currently reading Jane Eyre and am about half way through. Next up: Emma, Portrait of a Lady, Sense and Sensibility, Vanity Fair, Lady Chatterly's Lover, July 4th and Midwives.
Any suggestions as to a good fiction read?
I love Jane Eyre!
Try Wuthering Heights and Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility and, most of all, Persuasion, if you haven't read those yet (i'm pretty sure, you have, though).

Inherent Vice - Thomas Pynchon - about 50 more pages to go. Easier than his earlier works, but kind of running out of steam. Definitely funny.
We Tell Ourselved Stories in Order to Live - Joan Didion - great non-fiction collection of some of her ealier books. I had no recollection of her earlier work and was impressed at what she had done. Especially good to read about California, Miami, politics and the counterculture of the 60s that was.
The Age of American Unreason - Susan Jacoby - great non fiction book basically about the culture of anti-intellectualism which now seems to pervade parts of America. She is opinionated, which is to be expected, but this is a well written book and a joy to read.

I'm currently reading Nightmares and Dreamscapes by Stephen King and I have a choice next of either Terry Brooks, more Stephen King or Edward Rutherford. I'm visually impaired so make good use of the RNIB's Talking Book Service. It costs only £19 per quarter, but I can get through a lot more books a lot faster and not fall asleep with it in my hands while I'm doing so.
Have a great read

World without end Ken Follet. I loved Pillars of the earth so am hoping this one lives up to it.
