Here we are, going to discuss books. As a nerd, I know am slacking in this, but I just started reading "The Cystal Shard." This is a novel wittin by R.A. Salvatore and is the original story based around Drizzt Do'Urden. I did read the pre-quels first.

Amazing reads.

I have read the Do'Urden series up to book seven so far. Indeed a wonderful series.

The Incarnation of Immortality is an amazing, highly-recommended series by Piers Anthony (creator/author of Xanth). The titles of the books, when put together, make an interesting run-on sentence that can tell you a lot about what you'll be reading.

"Seeker of Truth", the books behind the TV show. Written by Terry Goodkind. Usually I don't like to start new things (books, music, TV) unless I know a bit about what I'm getting into (i.e., I've been a 3.0/3.5 D&D fan for years before I started reading the Legend of Drizzt). But with this series, I randomly selected a book at Barnes and Noble and now I'm absolutely hooked. Tried to watch the TV series after I read the first five books. Struggled to keep watching through the first season. Surprised it even got a second. May as well be two different things - the books versus the show. Just a warning. ^_^

One of my favorite series is The Death Gate Cycle by Margarette Weis and Tracy Hickman. I even went so far as to write it out for D&D 3.5 and ran my gaming group through the entire story.

Was a lot of work, but was worth it since I got to show more people about the world(s) I enjoyed reading about.

Mm, gotta love some Margaret Weis.
I particularly enjoyed the "Star of the Guardian" series she did.

The only Weis and Hickman I have read was Dragonlance. I read some of the other authors works on the Dragonlance series, and they do not even compare. I have been thinking about reading that series "The Dwarves"

Your mention of Dragonlance reminds me of the Dragonriders of Pern.

Never heard of Dragonriders of Pern. I tend to like the older authors: Tolkien, R. E. Howard.H.P. Lovecraft, Edgar Rice Burroughs, C.S. Lewis, JULES VERNE, and some of the newer guys. Salvatore, Terry Brooks, Weis/Hickman.

I couldn't, personally, get into Pern. It was done by Anne McCaffrey. 22 books.

Terry Brooks...was that the Shannara series?

mmm, books. I'm currently reading Dune. I've had it for years and finally decided it was time.

The Shannara series reminded me too much of LotR - and considering I'm unhealthily obsessed with LotR, I just couldn't read them without comparing the two unfairly. (I also tried reading them right after the first movie came out so I was super hyped.)

We were raiding the other day, and a guildie queued up in vent for like 3 seconds and Freya picked out the music in the background, and was all 'you're watching LotR and they are in the bar yadda yadda'. From 3 seconds of music. Obsessed is an understatement.

Nothing wrong with being a geek.

Girls that are true geeks get +100 to their sex appeal.

Purchased some novels by Edgar Burroughs and 20,000 leagues under the sea. Anyone read of these?

I use to read everything I could get my hands on but have moved more into biographies, memoirs, and anything related to the medical field. Hard to find good suggestions on most of those genres.
