What is the most recent book that you have read?
And
What are you reading currently or planning to read?

for me the last was: Murder in Mesopotamia by Agatha Christie
and the next is: Monsieur Pamplemousse Omnibus Vol. 2 by Michael Bond

I tend to read a lot of books at the same time. I'm currently reading Walden, Of Human Bondage, and Go Ask Alice. I plan on reading Mein Kampf and Phantom of the Opera.

the last one i read was the best. the funny thing is checked them all out of my school library the week before exams thinking that i could read all 8 of them before and durring the exam week. i ended up exempting my exams and only got to book 3. im so mad because the local library doesnt have them so i have to wait to next year to finish! i plan on reading them all. if you like that you will like the sword of truth by terry good kind. i have not been able to find the next book were i left off but 6 books into it is awsome!

The last book I read was F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby.

I'm currently reading Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice which, by the way, is really good so far.

And next I plan to read J.D. Salinger's The Catcher in the Rye.

I'm currently attempting to finish the second book of "The Wheel of Time" series. I'm two chapters away from the end, but when exams came in school, I had to stop reading it. As of lately I havn't had time to finish it. I have every single book except the last one.

After that...I'm going to read "The Giver" like Yin suggested me to read. It might be a book for younger people, but still worth reading.

Then I will read the new Harry Potter book...then on to Eldest, the sequal to Eragon.

I will eventually make my way back to the Wheel of Time series...eventually!

Umm... Harry Potter comes out tonight and I am SO FREAKING EXCITED!!! I am so there at midnight.

But other than that I'm reading the Vice Guide to Sex, Drugs, and Rock and Roll which is an absolutely hilarious book that I recommend to anyone. I also just got done reading The Hours which is a highly quotable book.
