Schlafes Bruder (Brother of Sleep) by Robert Schneider
Quote:
Set against the mystical and bizarre backdrop of a remote Alpine village in the early nineteenth century, this astounding novel tells the story of Elias Johannes Alder, a musical genius with supernatural hearing who develops his talent in secret midnight sessions at the church organ. In the face of devastating fires and other strange occurrences, the villagers seethe with a concealed hostility toward God, who sends nothing but trouble; while Elias wages his own battle with a God who not only denies him Elizabeth, the woman he loves, but confers upon him a gift he can neither fulfill nor understand.

The Doll's House by Neil Gaiman (again a comic book, second of the Sandman series. I didn't like this as much as I liked the first, but I'll still check the thrid one out)
Leaves of Grass by Walt Whitman. It's the frist edition from 1855. I'm not sure if I really think anything about it.

The next to the last. Charlaine Harris said recently that the 13th book will most likely be the final one.


Currently reading and loving The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern.

I'm one of those people who's always reading more then one book at a time. At the moment I have To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee in my hands. It's the first time I've read it since 8th grade. It's one of those books I didn't really appreciate when I was younger because I think I wasn't mature enough to fully understand it. But so far I'm liking it a lot more this time.

i'm on goodreads
i know there are at least a couple other tfs-ers from the 50 book challenge thread on there as well.

i've found it to be really great actually.
i love seeing my progress and looking back at what books i've gotten through this year.

i've also set up the 50 book challenge on there for myself and it keeps track of my progress on that and let's me know whether, i'm on track or if i'm ahead/behind and by how many books at my current pace

just finished the hunger games last night and i LOVED it...
tore right through it and can't wait to get my hands on the next book in the series.
