I needed something on the heavy subject side.

I decided to read the Lord of the Rings, since the movies were coming out and all. Started reading it about 19 years ago when I was 12, but my patience for Hobbits wore thin very quickly and I decided to stop reading them at a pretty early stage.

So, you're the one who bought the only copy sold. I would've thought Mini Jules would've done it. Mini Jules, you dissapoint me.

P.S.-Renaldow, you think like me. I also am reading the Lord of the Rings Trilogy in anticipation for the movies. Stop thinking like me!!

Well, isn't it you're job to close these kinds of thread and move them to the correct place?

I'm currently reading "Catholicsm and Fundamentalism" by Karl Keating. I guess I'm trying to get in touch with my spiritual side or something. I just read Dune for the fourth time and i'm just resisting the urge to finish up the series again. I also got the Lord of the Rings boxset sitting next to me which is just screaming for a rereading. I guess I'm getting nostalgic with my reading. What next? Maybe I'll give the good old Bible another chance soon.

I'm reading reading Super-Cannes by J.G. Ballard.

(whereas I'm supposed to be reading Cases and materials on international law by D.J. Harris, although strangely enough that doesn't have quite the same appeal

Just finished "Into Thin Air" (it was OK) and started "The Neverending Story" for a change of pace.

I recently read "In the Heart of the Sea : The Tragedy of the Whaleship Essex" - that was great!

Also reading "Lord of the Rings," not the first effort. In the second book now.

Read it around a decade ago, basicly a glorified primer. And largely outdated today, I would think.
