    Previous: Jane Eyre by Bronte

    Current: The Name of the Wind by Rothfuss (loving the story device!)

    Upcoming: Not sure yet. I don't think I'll read Wise Man's Fear yet. Maybe... Book III of song of Ice and Fire. I'm working my through that series again in anticipation of Dance With Dragons. Oh yeah, I got a bunch of books at the library, I need to look at those next. Though I can't remember at the moment what I brought home! :)

    I usually don't know what's next until I finish the current book. If I'm absorbed in a series, then I pick up the next one. If I need a change of pace, I scan my own library shelves, or go to the public library or bookstore.

    Previous: Neverwhere. The one Gaiman book I hadn't read before. Adored it.

    Current: Bouncing between Storm Front by Jim Butcher (because I need to get into The Dresden Files), Sharpe's Tiger by Bernard Cornwell (not fantasy, I know, but Cornwell is an excellent novelist) and World War Z by Max Brooks (for the umpteenth time. It's a thoroughly enjoyable masterpiece of horror/post-apoc).

    Upcoming: A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin (you know the drill).

    Previous: Fool's Errand by Robin Hobb, The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret someone.

    Current: Eugh, still Jane Eyre. I was enjoying it so much until the incredibly dull boss/love interest arrived. I thought he was supposed to make me swoon and up my standards of men of this generation or something. Yet I can't even read on, because I'm so bored. Also The Fry Chronicles by Stephen Fry.

    Upcoming: The Rogue by Trudi Canavan, The Golden Fool by Robin Hobb, The Inheritance by Robin Hobb.

    I have no problem with anyone having a different mindset for reading. Sorry I didn't make it more clear, but absolutely feel free to post the list however works for you.

    Update:

    Previous: Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? P.K. Dick, The Silmarillion and The Hobbit.

    Current: The Fellowship of the Ring

    Upcoming: The Two Towers, The Return of the King, The Colour of Magic Pratchett

    I have multiple books unfinished but I tend to just set them aside and come back to them. I started the Colour of Magic but have a hard time getting into it, would any Pratchett fans out there suggest I skip to another book? I hear the books don't need be read in order.

    Excellent thread. I've already been reminded of several books that I've been meaning to read, yet have forgotten about.

    Previous: The Half-Made World by Felix Gilman, Ariel by Steven R. Boyett
    Current: The Diamond Age by Neal Stephenson
    Upcoming: Lion of Macedon by David Gemmell

    @Behelit - Have you tried the Gaiman/Pratchett collaboration Good Omens? It was the first thing I read with either Gaiman's or Pratchett's name on it and it got me interested in both authors.

    I know the book of which you speak, but I haven't read it. I'll check that out. Thanks for the suggestion, brian. :)
