so i borrowed tales of imagination and mystery by edgar allan poe from the library recently. has anyone read it? i'm a little bit blown away by it. intrigue, suspense, the supernatural. you can't find creativity like that nowadays

the complete treasury of sherlock holmes. it's pretty good, although i think i'm turning out to be not a fan of short stories in general.

apparently i'm the only one doing any reading around here these days

I'm reading Dexter in the Dark right now. The first chapter, (or was it a prologue?) was sort of weird though.

Saman, what did you think of A Tale of Two Cities? That's my favorite Dickens book. If you like Dickens, I think you would get a kick out of his friend and colleague, Wilkie Collins. Read The Moonstone or Armadale - I loved those. The Woman in White was great too.

Right now I'm re-reading the Harry Potter series, I'm almost done with #6 and will hopefully be able to start the last one tomorrow (or tonight, since I'm home sick and plan on reading a lot today). Next up once I'm done with these: Remarkable Creatures by Tracey Chevalier.

I just finished The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo a couple days ago. Good book! They sure have a lot of coffee and sandwiches. Read it on my Kindle <3

I'm finally reading that, it's good so far but I'm only about 1/4 of the way through it. Nothing too meaty yet.
