For a crime writer, it's ideal.  :D

I think the same of Jim Butcher (Dresden Files).

Never read any Neil Gaiman, I'm ashamed to say. I do like Jim Butcher's Dresden Files and the Codex Alera though.

I wish I could get the Sandman novels without having to pay for the whole series. Not at the library, I'm afraid. Might have to spend a day at the local big bookstore (yes, we still have one) reading them all secretly in the café.

I read 'The Walking Dead' Graphic novel, I didn't like it mainly becayse all zombie flicks,novels,and comics are all the
same ::)

However I read Irredeemable, which surprisingly turned out to be a great read :)

What if the worlds greatest superhero  suddenly snaps and becomes evil?  :o

Just picked up The Headmaster's Wager by Vincent Lam and started reading it last night. It's about the Chinese headmaster of a English-language school living in Vietnam just before the start of the Vietnam War. The prose is addictive. I keep picking it up even when I know I really don't have to read just to squeeze in a few lines when I can.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

I've had the book sitting in my bookcase for a couple of years (has it really been five years already?), so that was about time.  :D

I began reading Jeffrey Archer's 'A Prisoner of Birth', and I got halfway - decided I didn't like the protagonist any longer and tired of him. Now I'm not reading anything at present!

I have just started reading The Seance, by John Harwood. Not far in, but it's looking good.

As for American Gods, mentioned earlier, yes, I agree, it is awesome. I love Neil Gaiman.

Never heard of the Dresden Files though, I'm going to check that out now.

Just started Blood of the Fold, the third of Terry Goodkind's Wizards First Rule series. Hoping it is better than the second...
