Oh look, another great idea I had! ...Well, 'great' is debatable, but you get the idea. So, a lot of us here probably like to read books of some kind or another. I intended for this thread to be a gradual feed of posts, so you can share what books you've been reading, give opinions on books others are reading, or maybe just share some experiences you've had while reading. I'll start! :::: Recently, I finished up reading the books Captain Blood and The Invention of Hugo Cabret - and yes, I'm aware those are two vastly different books; one of them is a swashbuckling tale, and the other is basically a children's book written like a screenplay. The former took me about 2 days to get through; the latter took me 2 hours. The next book planned that I want to read is Around the World in 80 Days - which I have read before, but not for about 10 years before, and I'd like to be able to see it again fresh. I'll probably appreciate it more as an adult than I did as a teenager! :::: Now then - what have you been reading?
