I happen to have, in my possession, two books on John Wilkes Booth for theater class.

We had to pick a biography of a performing artist and I was in the library and this conversation happened.

Me: "I wish we could just choose any biography, I would seriously love to read about John Wilkes Booth."

Mom: "Wait..."

Me: *stares at mom* John Wilkes Booth was a performing artist, wasn't he!? Like, a really well known actor which is why he's some of those pictures with Abraham Lincoln!!"

Mom: "Yes!"

Oh, it was an amazing, amazing day.

Since I don't want to spoil anything plus I have yet to finish it, I will just quote.
"1099. Jerusalem awaits the invasion of the crusaders who surrounded the
city’s gates. Inside the city’s walls, men and women gathered to hear
the wise words of a mysterious man– known as the Copt. The people begin
with questions about their fears, true enemies, defeat and struggle;
they contemplate the will to change, and the virtues of loyalty and
solitude; and ultimately turn to questions of beauty, sex and elegance,
love, wisdom and what the future holds.“What is success?” poses the
Copt: “It's being able to go to bed each night with your soul at peace.”
These many centuries later, the wise man’s answers are still valid as a
record of the human values that pass through time. In Coelho’s hands, The Manuscript Found in Accra,
reveals who we are, what we fear and what we hope for the future comes
from the enduring knowledge and belief within us, and not from the
adversity that surrounds us."

You haven't? It's actually really good. I'm not even just saying that as a fan.

I'm planning on reading a Song of Ice and Fire. All my friends are into the books and Game of Thrones, so I'm giving it a shot

Anyone found any good books lately? 

I've personally been reading the Kate Daniels series. I don't know if I really like the romance in it, but thank god it doesn't really feature/is a really miniscule part of the story. The books are mostly focused on the plot itself, and I love the worldbuilding. Good worldbuilding is the best.

I've also been meaning to reread the HP series again. I've read some criticism of it, and I'm curious to see if it's as good as I thought it was. My reading taste has definitely changed since I last read them, which was a couple years ago. A couple years is still a long time in terms of reading though. Razz

SUGGESTION! 

You! You're looking for good books yes? Well look no further because the Leviathan trilogy are the books for YOU! I won't say anything about them because you might judge a book by it's reader. Also, I might go crazy with the explanation and make it sound crazy because they're SO AMAZING! Anyway, look it up, then read, then post. Bye!

Are they steampunk novels written by Scott Westerfeld? I just want to make sure before I dive into them! Just the word steampunk (on Wikipedia) caught my eye, though I won't read any further into the article. I rarely read books or watch anything without spoilers (I'm also the type of reader who skips to the end...), but I want to try it for once! Smile 

I'll totally post after I read the first one!! I'm always excited to read and talk about books.

Ummm, yeah I guess you could say it's steampunk. At least the Clankers are, oh the Clanker art is amazing. Actually, all the art is amazing. Don't worry, Clankers isn't a spoiler, it will be explained on the very first page of Leviathan.
