Three Kingdoms (A historical novel of China)
Attributed to Luo Guanzhong, tranlated by Moss Roberts
It's good so far, but the combination of 900+ large trade paperback small print pages and the fact that it's jam-packed with Chinese history make it slow going.

Re: keeping the forum alive: Right now I'm reading.... (sharkracer)

Science fiction by david weber ...can't remember which one of the Honor Harrington novels...

I read that if you were an American that had finished one book this year you were one out of a hundred...the study was done for the year 2003....sad, just plain sad.

last nonfiction book that I read was The Total Money Makeover,
it was very good commonsense advice that is not commonly followed

Can you describe a little more of what part of the Chinese history this deals with? I read a bunch of historial novels so this may be right up my alley.

I'm waiting for the 4th book. This is one of the best fantasy series I've ever read.

I started to read Cryptonomicon four days before my classes started up again in September. My workload is so brutal that I've put it aside until Christmas.

Paranoia by Joseph Finder. A semi-farcical corporate thriller. A fun fast read.
