Books... reading any?

Man, I tried to read this as a kid. Didn't work too well, probably because I just wasn't old enough. Let us (me) know how it goes.
Then I'm gonna be reading the Worm Ouroboros.
Starting about halfway through it got quite boring, especially with Eliza's diary. But after that it's smooth sailing, kinda like The Fellowship of the Ring.
I'm in the middle of Quicksilver, been slacking on my reading a bit

unlike dudes, girls don't tend to hide Gak or Squand in their rectum.

Books 6 & 7 are in paperback, they're just still the larger dimensions.
Currently reading nothing. Finished Wolves of the Calla several weeks ago. Waiting for the next one to come out in paperback. (I hate hardbacks)
I read the Dark Tower series last year and I'm anxious to know what you think of the last 3 books once you've read them.

As far as the series goes, I probably picked up the first one about 15 years ago and I re-read all of them from the beginning when I get a new one to refresh the story in my mind. So far, I think my favorite has been the Drawing of the Three.

Silmarillion will be next, and then probably Lost Tales and the Hobbit afterwords. I've got to make up for not having read any of this before.

If the stuff in the appendices interests you, you should definitely read The Silmarillion. It may be tough at first (my first time I think I was about thirteen and I couldn't get through the first section) but it's definitely worth it once you get to the meat of the stories. Now I like it better than the LOTR.
I just finished the Lord of the Rings last weekend. I am now getting sucked into the appendix of The Return of the King, because aside from ridiculous family trees and impossible to remember lists of kings and heirs, it gives summary to a lot of awesome stories that i'd be missing out on if I put the book down after "the end". Like the ban of the valor, the fall of the numerian for trying to enter the undying lands, the death of sauron, the parallel to Frodo and Elrond's wife, Elrond's brother choosing to be mortal and becoming the first Numerian King, the lossoth (who were actually people who lived in snow and ice, not fire as castlevania would portray... ICE FTW), stuff about Beren, and such. There are still over 100 pages left for me to read, and it goes a lot more slowly for being told as a history and not a narrative.

Now, I started Angels & Demons, the "sequel" to DaVinci Code. So far, it's good but it's a little bit too unrealistic, I mean, a plane that fly at mach 15!?!?!
