give me something different to read (even though I believe in no religions...)

I CAN'T STOP GIGGLING
The Necronomicon is an ok read for a 15 year old. It's not a real grimoire, not does it fall under the category of religion. The real author was H.P. Lovecraft. Brilliaont author btw, but not a master high priest of Beezelbub.

YA,I realized that after skimming through that... I almost think it was written for comical purposes (even though I know it wasn't). I'm disappointed it wasn't as interesting as I thought it might be...

I'm going to start reading The Reason I Jump.

RE: What are you reading?
Right now, am reading a small book titled "We Indians" by Khuswant Singh, an Indian author. He passed recently at the age of 99. A few of them are available as ebooks on TPB. His writing style is simple and direct.

RE: What are you reading?
I just finished reading The Lost Gate, and its sequel, The Gate Thief by Orson Scott Card.
They are the first and second volume of his Mither Mages trilogy.
The third volume in the series has not yet been released.

It is not Sci-Fi, but fantasy dealing in magic that is tied into world history and folklore.
Orson Scott Card spins an excellent storyline.

Never underestimate the power of human stupidity.

^ooh ! Nice. Impressed by the Acknowledgments. :-)
Found ebook here.
But it is 1100 pages :-(
Seasonal discount sales over here are tempting me to buy a paperback. My star sign (assuming it is mine) says, be wary of spending money this week. gngngngngn.
