    I know you said you were looking for a copy of Devil earlier and that it is very hard to find. How'd you manage to grab a copy?
    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.

    Finished The Da Vinci Code. Again a big thanks to Kn'thark for getting me a paperback version.

    I enjoyed it but I was expecting a little more from it. Maybe it was victim from all the hype. I honestly thought that Langdon would be bouncing around Europe from clue to clue. I pictured it to be a little like National Treasure. Dan Brown does bring up some "interesting" points but as a practising Roman Catholic I find it hard to believe most of it. I really wish that he went into a little more detail on some of the points raised or presented some more evidence. One thing, it has gotten me more interested in the Knights Templar.

    Just started reading Fahrenheit 451 by Bradbury.

    Read the Da Vinci Code a while ago. What a piece of garbage. Plot-wise it was boring and insulting...come on! He stole the hand-written clue from Scooby Doo and a five letter word associated with Newton...hmmm...let me think. Plus there's the whole anti-Catholic thing, which although I have no particular attachment to Catholicism, I find disturbing since the church history that he presents as fact is so incredibly fictionalize. Anyway...there's better stuff out there.

    I'm currently finishing up Jared Diamond's Collapse: How societies choose to succeed or fail (book details). The environmental problems that Diamond outlines are astonishing...we're really flirting with disaster on this planet. I highly recommend it. I still don't generally support highly-politicized groups like Greenpeace or the Sierra Club...but I have always been very concerned about environment and Diamond seems to be one of those rare, pragmatic environmentalists.

    Well, I started reading this recently (only my version is in hard cover and in serbo-croatian):

    Winston Churchill - "The Second World War"
    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/039...lance&n=283155

    Those documetaries on Discovery channel about WWII really got me interested in this period of the history, so that's the reason why I started reading these books.

    I just don't know when/if I'll finish all six volumes... it's a looot of pages.

    I just finished re-reading the Harry Potter books, but my mate still has my Half Blood Prince!!!

    Started reading a book called Saurian that I picked up in a second hand shop for 50p (around 30 cents). It's a schlocky little creature feature, and kind of boring actually. Still I'm determined to read it, I did pay for it afterall.

    readin´ HP6 again-this time in czech translation.
    what is f...cked about that is that almost all the names are translated, so when I read in english, it takes me time to find out who is who and now, readin´ czech here it comes again - who is who?
    anyway czech translation is quite well done, so no problema
    got 2 more books for christmas - 50 famous directors and 200 censored movies

    Exclamation

    why not to make this one STICKY?
    There´s always something to say ´bout books...and it still can be a part of movie forums (non-movie related, of course)
