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.

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."34 million American adults are obese. Putting together that excess blubber would fill the Grand Canyon two-fifths of the way up. That may not sound impressive, but keep in mind it is a very big canyon."

Well, I started reading this recently (only my version is in hard cover and in serbo-croatian):
Winston Churchill - "The Second World War"
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.

Finished all the Harry Potter books...very good. Didn't care for 5 so much, but 4 and 6 were excellent.
