Do you guys read books? I mean other than used for studying? Perhaps long adventure-novels or short stories.....

Here are some of my favorites:
Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre
Alexsandre Dumas' Three Musketeers
J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of The Rings Barbara Hambly's Children of the Jedi (a Star Wars-book)
Joy Adamson's Born free

J.r.r. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings!
J.R.R. Tolkien's Hobbit!
J.R.R. Tolkien's Silmarillion!

It ( by Stephen King )
almost every Stephen King novel

H.P. Lovecraft's novels ( the real frightener! )

Brian Jacques Redwall saga... ( it's unbelievably good if concidering it sounds childish and there's only animals! )

Well, I prefer to watch TV or going to movies or playing games than reading books. But I read some of Anne Rice's and Michael Crichton's.

Philip K. ****'s Do Androids dream of an electric sheep ( read it English; hard http://www.escapemi.com/forums/smile.gif It isn't translated to finnish or at least I don't know about it )

Gunther-Locher Buccheim's ( don't know if spelled that name right http://www.escapemi.com/forums/smile.gif ) 'Das Boot', or U-96, the true story about the WWII-time submarine is frightening and really exciting... Wonderful book!

Väinö Linna's Tuntematon Sotilas goes here as well; it's even better as book than a movie, and really is a book every Finn should read at least once...

and of course Kalevala is good too http://www.escapemi.com/forums/smile.gif Tolkien studied Kalevala BtW...

To MegaMonkey:
Jeah, I think that Tuntematon Sotilas is better as a book, I've actually read it, twice!! http://www.escapemi.com/forums/cool.gif I've also seen the movies...

I haven't read the whole Kalevala...just some parts of it in school... I've heard (of course http://www.escapemi.com/forums/biggrin.gif ) about that "Tolkien studied Kalevala"-thing... Cool! http://www.escapemi.com/forums/wink.gif http://www.escapemi.com/forums/wink.gif
