Well I just thought how unusual it was for a game to have such a good backstory and overall atmosphere so I googled it up and found out that it was made after the books. So I got interested.
There was even a TV series after the Witcher, in Polish production.

"The Island on Birds Street" By Uri Orlev. It's a book from a point of view of a kid in the holocaust, that lives alone in Warsaw ghetto after the big cleansing.

The Dune by Frank Herbert. A very good book, it's definately worth to read it!
I read it. Excellent book!

I might begin re-reading Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis tonight.  I'm also contemplating another go at Chronicles, which I really enjoyed many years ago.

Just a general book-tip: Read Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles, now
The most thrilling, poetic and sensual books I've read.

No, I live in an area that does not lend itself to having books like this to read.  Now if there were Might and Magic French Fries it would be a different story.

emilsn.... Naruto is one of the worst mangas out there.... I have no ******** idea how it has become so popular oO if I may suggest something you should try One Piece or Bleach or Fairy Tale or Fullmetal Alchemist (look for Bixies shonen manga thread it's awesome).

Anyways I am reading "Galaxy in Flames" the first book in a series called the "Horus Heresy" which is also set in the WH40k universe... and it is EPIC!!
And I just finished "Storm of Iron" another WH40k story.... damn it was awesome!! And I think I'll have a look at "The founding". I really like the WH40k stories... and I'm especially interested in the Primarchs. Any suggestions anyone? Of course I'm trying to get "Fullgrim" as he is one of the more interesting Primarch (and he is the only one that actually has a book about him).

I'm undergoing self-moderated humor therapy, so I've been reading and watching tons of funny stuff on a daily basis.  It seems to be working out well for me, so I'll be sticking to these routines for as long as time allows.  My copy of Drew Carey's Dirty Jokes and Beer: Stories of the Unrefined just arrived in the mail, and I'm absolutely thrilled about it.  I'm a huge fan of his.  I have a good feeling that I'll really enjoy his book.

I just finished Douglas Adams' The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul. The man is a genious, even if the book wasn't as good as the Hitchhiker saga.
