I'm currently reading Millennium Falcon. It's tells you the history of the Falcon before Han Solo got it, it's a really interesting book.

I'm reading 1984 for an English assignment
Also, All Quiet on the Western Front was given as an optional assignment, and it's much harder imo, but I'm gonna read it just for my enjoyment. If I have time/feel like I can do the optional assignment, then I'll do that too c:

I'm reading a very big book about teachers telling stories how the education in Belgium evolved from shitty to extreme diarrhea explosions.

(Note: might have added my own opinion there... A lil' bit)

I read tons of books since I last posted. My favourites are the Star Wars: Republic Commando series, they are really good.

Picked up the entire A Song of Ice and Fire series

I'm currently about 300 pages into A Game of Thrones

Also, I picked up Assassin's Creed: Forsaken, Star Wars Darth Bane trilogy, and Star Wars Darth Plageuis.

Read AC: Forsaken so far. Not the best written book, but it tells the story of AC3 and the backstory on Haytham Kenway with an interesting perspective. Id recommend it to any AC fan, but it's not something to pick up unless you like the series

If a book is more then 150 pages, I loose my courage.

It does seen kinda scary to read long books but honestly, if you read the book seriously, most books could be finished in less than 2 days time. If one can invest 100 hrs into a video game, ~48 into a book should be no problem.

Of course, it's all about one's interests

I tend to lose track of the pages around page 80. If I find myself around page 260 sometime later, it wouldn't surprise me.

Well, I wasn't referring to Jonez, the "one" was entirely arbitrary

Splinter Cell: Operation Barracuda :- Not that great but fans of the game might like it. One thing I didn't like was how much Sam got caught. He's supposed to be a ghost.

The Kite Runner - Top class. I downloaded the movie last night for my friend who doesn't read.
