I finished I Know This Much is True by Wally Lamb-incredible book. I highly recommend it.
Now reading The Murder of Roger Ackroyd by Agatha Christie.

I'm just finishing the third book in the Dune trilogy, "Children of Dune" (the first two are "Dune" and "Dune Messiah"). Somewhat later in his life, Frank Herbert wrote another "episode" in the Dune series, "God Emperor of Dune". I'm kind of "Duned out" for a while, so I'll read that one after I finish some others ("David Copperfield" is next as I'm catching up on the classics).

Watchmen by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons. It's a DC Comics novel. Kinda super-hero comic and novel combo. A bizarre mix but actually brilliant fiction.

I've read part of Watchmen-need to dig it out and finish it. Falls into the Graphic Novel genre and if you like this one check out the Graphic Novel section at your local bookstore. There are tons of them.

I loved Bone but...Hmm, shoot me a PM when you finish it. I don't know how I feel about the last section. My friend firmly disagreed with me so I'm curious to see another opinion.

Well, actually I read the last gn first, not fully realizing it was a continuous story vs a stand alone. Now I'm going to start at the beginning. When I'm done we can have a chat. :tu

A really interesting book. It's been about a decade since I read it, but I remember really being taken in by it.
