I finished Dune the other day which was completely and totally awesome. I'll definitely be reading the rest of the series over the summer. And I forgot I was only about half way through The Devil in the White City so I am finishing that up now.

I might read this next:



Chabon is a favorite of mine.

At the moment, I am reading Artemis Fowl: The Opal Deception, which is the 3rd book in the series. I read the first 2 books in this series back years ago in 2002 back when I was much younger. It was one of my favorite novels back then so I decided to go back to it after I noticed that they have book 7 coming out in a couple months from now. It is written in very simple english (simple enough for 8th graders and high-schoolers), but the story is very good and fairly complex even after all these years. It REALLY is something to go back and re-read something you read many years back. You notice things that you never saw before and just gain a better understanding.

I love the series and am content with the ending. You should post your thoughts on the ending of The Dark Tower when you get there. I say that cause people are quite divided about Roland's conclusion.. and Im curious to read if you end up loving it or hating it.

Anyways, this is the next book I plan on reading when I am finished with Artemis Fowl:


I will finish the rest of the Artemis Fowl series as soon as I am finished reading Perfect Assassin. I am a big novel guy as some of you may have noticed by now.

Anyways, last summer, I read several books by Nelson Demille. Great author IMO.
Some of my favorite books from him:
