I'm reading one of the Fleming books now, but I'll definitely check out the Sonja Blue series.:bounce_pinka:

Okay Don't throw rocks but I do read the "Dark" series by Christine Feehan. I know they are Romance novels but I really like the way she shows the depth and complexity of the Carpathian culture and their struggle to survive.

I've read a bunch of Christine's books, but you have to have a ton of money, since there are so many in the series, and you don't want to miss out on any of the action, hehe. i like the Dark Celebration story the best.

I finally gave in and ordered a Kindle. And then immediately went crazy ordering from their free selection. I think I picked about a hundred books and I haven't even gotten the darn thing yet! But they had cool classics like Poe, and Agatha Cristie, and Jane Austen and more obscure titles like The Evil Guest by Le Fanu, and Varney the Vampire (can't remember the author just now), and Mary Shelley's The Last Man. I'm running out of room to store real books, so hopefully this will come in handy. It will be my very own tiny, cute black and white striped library of gothic fiction. I had to order a skin for it due to my inexplicable love for black and white stripes and accessorising unnecessarily. However, I will still be collecting my beloved leather-bound tomes. I love the smell of leather books in the morning. :2567:

Ok, great series to read: The Mario Acevedo series of books on Felix Gomez, a vampire detective who's an Iraqui war vet,  and it's got TONS of great humor. The titles are hysterical:

X-Rated Bloodsuckers, Nymphos of Rocky Flats, The Undead Kama Sutra, Zombie Jailbait and Werewolf Smackdown.

Since Acevedo is actually a military vet, of course his books are filled with government conspiracies of all  kinds, not to mention vampires, zombies, aliens, and other Supes. Great action sequences and yes, he DOES like his ordnance.

Highly recommended.

I can't wait to read The Last Man. Mary Shelley was one impressive lady. I can't believe she was only 17 when she wrote Frankenstein. It would be an amazing feat now, but considering the era she came from, for a young girl to write something so serious and moving, and about science no less! Blows my mind.

Same here.  I know some people who have gotten a Kindle and now they swear by it, but nothing beats an old leather book.

I'm about halfway through a reading marathon right now.  Last year, I started reading all of J.G. Ballard's novels.  Anyone who likes a good dystopia would like Ballard.  Definitely recommended.

I finished 'Dead Reckoning' last night. It was really good and a cliff hanger too. I was a little taken aback by some of the character name pairings though. (Mark & Mindy, Kelvin & Hods) Ahem that was a bit cheesy, but the book was very good. BTW it's the Sookie Stackhouse #11.

I started reading 'South Park And Philosophy...Hey I Learned Something Today' It's an interesting read. An analysis of the humor of South Park and is it really appropriate to laugh at the South Park humor.
