I'm still working on "The Unifying Force".  I was hoping to go back and read Return of the King before the premier but I dont' think I'll get time. :-\

I was given the LOTR trilogy as a child.  completely ignored it and still haven't read them.  Missing all the spoilers for ROTK as best I can.  

I go into those movies completely blind for the most part (hey, how do you watch the movie? ba-da-bump ::))

Right now I'm reading:

The Starry Rift by James R. Tripptree

Lucky Starr & The Rings of Saturn by Asimov, which is so bad it's good

Mailman by J. Robert Lennon

Weapons & Warfare LOTR.

I finished Potter 5 a few weeks ago, its was good, not my favorite of the series so far but still good.  Harry was way too whiny and moody for my liking, it was a bit over the top.  

Currently I'm reading Tale of Two Cities which has been slow going and Contact based on a thread over at RS.  One of my favorite Books and Movies, its a great story...

Book wise, The Unifying Force, the final book in the NJO series.

This week's comics were Daredevil, Outsiders, Hawkman, GIJoe and Transformers/GIJoe.

After TUF, I plan on reading The Hobbit.  I never read it, but after the movies and reading LOTR, I had to, so I picked it up.

Monthly magazines include Playboy, Maxim, FHM, Stuff, Golf and Wizard.

And I read the Boston Globe daily.

Well the current book on the end table is The Art of Raising a Puppy by the Monks of New Skete. I picked it up for Sue becasue she is  not used to having a pup running amuck in the house but I picked it up and am reading it. Not a bad book to look at if your into German Shepherds.

i just finished reading that - along with the first 17 books - about a week ago. i waited till i got all of them and then just read them in succession... figured this was the best idea, since i would have forgotten what had happened in the past books if i read other stuff in between.

but, while i was busy reading all 18 of the njo books, i had other books piling up waiting to be read. so after i finish the davinci code, i have:

the wolves of the calla (dark tower part 5) by stephen king - i might just read the first 4 of those again as well first before starting this

lullaby by chuck palahniuk
diary by chuck palahniuk
welcome to the monkey house by kurt vonnegut
slaughterhouse five by kurt vonnegut
slippage by harlan ellison
angry candy by harlan ellison
troublemakers by harlan ellison

and a few others that i can't think of (and can't see from here, and don't feel like getting up  ;) )

yeah, i've read all of chuck's other books, but i picked these two up during my "njo" period... so they go on the "to be read" list.

I'm re-reading Lord of the Rings post-films, and that's a very fun/interesting experience.

I'm also reading How the Irish Saved Civilization by Thomas Cahill.
