Finished A Wrinkle In Time today. Now reading a book called The Housemates by an indie author named Iain Wright.

I'm (slowly) re-reading Sabriel by Garth Nix, partly for dreamwidth RP reasons, partly for shrine reasons, and mainly during my breaks at work. Hit about 50% today!

I'm reading a non-fiction book called The Hole in Our Gospel by Richard Stearns. It's about how many modern Christians have become complacent and don't really help others anymore--they just throw Scripture at people/share a few posts on Facebook/etc. and pretend they've done their "good deed" for the day. (Stearns writes this from his own perspective of having been comfortable and complacent in his own faith life before he got a huuuuuge awakening--this is really refreshing!)

Some bits are told in semi-narrative form and some bits are more informational, but altogether I find it to be a clarion call in book form, really challenging and convicting.

I actually started reading the Slayers original light novels after I found some epub translations of all 15 books online. xD I've read the first 8 before but never got around to reading the second half of the series because there wasn't any good translation of it all online until just a couple years ago. Someone formatted it well into epub and I've got it on my iPad. <3

I really need to get around to reading Dune! My best friend IRL really loves the series and I kept meaning to borrow the books off him at some point. Maybe I'll try giving it a read when I go visit next time. :3

yes! DO IT!!! actually i feel like it has some similarities to a song of ice and fire especially in the first two books. of course i don't remember specific examples right now, but i remember being reminded of asoiaf a couple different times, so maybe you might see some similarities too!
