I'm currently reading through Terry Brooks' Magic Kingdom for Sale/Sold series and I may read The Hobbit afterwards (been years since I've read it)

Other than that I recommend Terry Pratchett's work if you are into fantasy.

I'm also on the lookout for some good werewolf books (seem to have exhausted my supply) so if anyone has any suggestions I would muchly appreciate it!
hey Mehe!
I completely overlooked your question for werewolf book recommendations.
You may or may not know them already, but White wolf, the publisher of the Werewolf: The Apocalypse pen&paper roleplaying game, published quite a few novels in this setting as well. I wouldn't really call them "good" in a literary sense, but they're quite entertaining if you like the (modern, dystopian) setting. :)

There's a nice list of the novels here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_We ... ypse_books
You'll have to scroll down to the bottom a bit, the roleplaying books are up top.

Note: Breathe Deeply and The Silver Crown were marketed under the Rage-Logo.

Note: Call to Battle was intended as first of a series about the main character (as written on the cover), but no follow-up was published. The book also makes use of material from the game line Mage: The Ascension.
Note: The Tribe Novel Series refers to the content of The Silver Crown, while The Last Battle refers to the content of the Tribe Novel Series. Many of the main characters in those novels are considered signature characters of the game line.

I don't get much time to read these days but I'm currently reading Felicia Day's autobiography "You're Never Weird on the Internet (Almost)" and it's a really really great read.

I've read quite a few autobiographies and very often you finish the book liking the person far less than you did when you started the book (which, let me tell you, is VERY upsetting when it's someone you've liked and admired for years!). I doubted this would be the case with Felicia and I was right. She's funny, intelligent, entertaining and so completely down to earth that you just want to give her a hug!

Definitely a great read, especially for fellow gamers!

Currently reading this brain-melting sci-fi series. If you like multiverse theory then it's a must-read! :D

Currently reading a short story collection by Dukaj. Definitely worth a read if you know Polish or find a decent translation (some books feel damn impossible to translate though)

Reading Irrehaare right now. Guy has some fascinating ideas for Sci-fi.
