Just picked up the new U2 By U2 coffee table book.You're waiting for a train, a train that will take you far away. You know where you hope this train will take you, but you can't be sure. But it doesn't matter - because we'll be together.

Asterix is fantastic. I can read them again and again and again... Just brilliant! "Asterix in Corsica" is the first one I've ever read.

I've just finished Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen and I like it!!!
At first, I had a bad apprehension (I hate Mansfield Park, the characters are so stupids), but I enter deep in PnP. I want a Mr. Darcy!!! The book is in my top 20 now. There's a lot of suspense in the book. Even if you have seen the movie, it can be fun to read if you like that kind of book. Better than Sense and Sensibility IMO.
I don't really what to read next, it's always my problem.
I think I will beginning to read Christian Jacq books, I've like ten books from him and I never read one. The one which I think is (lit. The queen Sun). Or something else, I always guessing...
Or I will begin that HUGE biography about Alexander the Great by Valerio Manfredi in 3 volumes.
I'm not sure yet...

For the rest of the month I'm planning to read Emma by Jane Austen and fifteen Sailor Moon comics by Naoko Takeuchi (I miss the last 3 comics). That brings out so much memories to me.
I feel so girly right now.

I decide to re-read all the Sailor Moon comics I had (15 in total). This was not as good as when I was a kid. The publicity of derived products annoyed me. Damn, in my memories SM roxxor!!! I remember that this is because of Sailor Moon that I started to eat rice, because it was asian lol.
This is sad that I'm not feeling the same magic again. Some graphics are nice, but there is a lot of repetitions...
But I think it could be good for kids. If my best friend got a girl, I will probably give it to her.

Temeraire [The King's Dragon]
Reading first in what is so far a trilogy of books by Naomi Novik [U.S. Title is His Majesty's Dragon , not as shown in title of this post], I have to admit my first dragon book since reading Anne Mc Caffrey's Dragonriders of Pern series over 30 years ago. I have the second in trilogy The Jade Throne to read next afterwards
Very much enjoying it as it is not only fantasy which is no longer really a favourite genre of mine, but also Alternate history which very definitely is.
Of course I was inspired to order it from library by information in this thread http://www.movie-list.com/forum/showthread.php?t=16449

Doing my list of my 1000 favorite paintings take all my free time right now, but I look forward to read soon "The Meaning Of Liff" & "The Deeper Meaning Of Liff" by Douglas Adams & John Lloyd (those books look funny as hell), plus "Emma" by Jane Austen...
