Re-opening of the Nocturnal Library

The shelves have been dusted and damaged books repaired after some zombies chewed on them. So it's time to throw open the doors once again and see what you Nocts are pouring into your brains

The previous thread can be found here for any of those that are interested

I would imagine it's not altogether unlikely that some of you enjoy a good book/comic so let's see what reading material you're currently getting through.

The latest book that I'm reading is Pirate Cinema by Cory Doctorow.

Quote:
When Trent McCauley's obsession for making movies by reassembling footage from popular films causes his home's internet to be cut off, it nearly destroys his family. A new bill threatens to criminalize even harmless internet creativity. But the powers-that-be haven't entirely reckoned with the power of a movie to change people's minds...
I really enjoyed the last book of his that I read, For The Win, so I'm pretty sure that I'll enjoy this one too.

So what are the rest of you currently reading?

Reading Hammer of the Emperor, which (if you're a 40k fan you'll know) follows the Imperial Guard. Three stories, with three different regiments. The Cadian Gunheads in the first, a tank regiment. The Valhallan Ice Warriors are in the second story, and they are something like 40k's version of the Soviet Red army, while the third story involves the Tallarn Desert Raiders, who hail from (obviously) a desert planet.

I think that must be one of the only Palaniuk books I've haven't read at this stage. Gonna have to remedy that oversight soon.

I'm reading a million books at the minute. I think I'm going to get 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami finished though. I want to read plenty more of his books too.

Have read all of the books in this series in about 2 weeks recently. Really enjoyed them

Also, was reading L.J. Smiths 'Vampire Diaries' series, but not enjoying them as much.

Another good series that I must re-read is the Morganville Vampire series, by Rachel Caine. I liked those too

I am a fan of candyfloss for the brain type fantasy fiction books.... is pure escapism on my part

Ditto. Which is odd, since it's the big 'un

I wasn't too pushed getting the book as I'd seen the movie. Knowing the story of a book before reading it wouldn't make me too excited to read the book it was based on, regardless how I felt about the movie.
