Sorry if there's already one of these. I don't remember seeing one, I did a quick search and didn't see one so thought I may as well.

I guess a good way to do this would be to mention the genre as well, since I'm looking out for some new books to read...

Title: The Redemption of Althalus
Author: David and Leigh Eddings
Genre: Fantasy

I have a book on eastern religions that's been sitting on my shelf for months. Hopefully I'll be able to get to it over winter break. Gotta finish all those other books I bought months ago too.

:sigh: So much reading to do, so little time to do it.

Have you read "Old Path, White Clouds" by Thich Nhat Hanh? Great book if you are really into Buddhism. I have been a practicing buddhist for close to five years now.
