I read quite a bit a few years ago. Nowadays i find my vocabulary, or rather the use of it, not what it used to be. So ive decided to get back into active reading.

I just finished Ted Dekker's The Circle Trilogy.
Ive never read Christian fiction before, and didnt know what to expect. But if this trilogy is an appropriate representation of the genre, then its not bad at all. I enjoyed it thoroughly and experienced being engrossed in a story for the first time in years.

Im currently going through The One Thousand and One Nights.
Ive always had a liking for fairy tales and similar stories, and this caters to that - Its a large collection of eastern tales and myths.
Recurring elements include kings, princes, princesses, jinn (genies/angels/demons), enchantment, riches beyond measure, and women beautiful beyond imagination. (there are quite a few of those :P ).
Its all from an Islamic perspective, which i find very interesting. Altogether a good read.

Ive also acquired The Complete C.S. Lewis Signature Collection, which is waiting to be read.

Anyone read any of the above mentioned books?

mfw I read the Revan novel

it is not a cry of joy.
