As for me, picking up a DVD of "The War of the Worlds" is giving me the desire to give Wells another go (I've never made it through any of his books). And while I'm at it, I going to try some Jules Verne.
Currently, I'm reading 3001: The Final Odyssey, a not-for-sale readers' proof edition that I won at a charity book raffle. (There are some other books in that pile waiting to be read. I just finished a 50th anniversary Peanuts collection.)
On the nonfiction front: I finished Mark Levin's book, Men in Black and I'' probably head for the library soon to reserve a few other conservative books.
What are you looking forward to? Discuss.

Took the Kite Runner and Middlesex to the beach house last week. Very engaging.
Techniques of Crime Scene Investigations 7th Edition and Criminal Interrogation and Confessions 4th Edition. Woo hoo!
I was thinking of picking up Zell Millers new book "A deficit of decency". What is it about exactly?
His first book (a national party no more) actually convinced me to stop voting Democrat. It just summed up all of the problems I had with "The Party" and its direction.
I am reading nothing but Free Republic this summer. I just completed my first year of nursing school (last day today!!), and it seemed like I had my nose in a book 24/7. Everyone have a great summer. I'm off to Florida tonight for a week.
I'm reading Steinbeck's "Travels with Charley". It's awesome!
Excellent read - I recommend it instead of "Freakenomics" which sucks.
Just read 3001: The Final Odyssey. Better than 2010, but not as ground breaking as 2001.
I'm not much of a reader (Gen-X'er, nuf said). However, I've kind of been sucked back in to reading novels the past few years.
Anyway, I'm currently reading "Washington's Crossing" by David Fischer, Oxford Press I believe. This guy wrote "The Ride of Paul Revere" about a decade ago to rave reviews.
This is a very well-written and well-researched book. I'm at the point of the chronology where the author delves into the characteristics of the Howe brothers from England.
Nice maps, and interesting reading for the history buffs out there.
I'll let y'all know how it ends! Freedom vs. Tyranny!

Dale Brown, "Act of War," where he continues his story involving the "tin men" battle suits. I also hope to read "South Park Republicans," plus, for work, John Keegan's "Mask of COmmand," and Tom Sowell's "Black Rednecks . . . ."
put me on the ping list please.
Just finished Anna Karenina - the entire book! Took weeks.
"The Time Traveler's Wife" is exceptional.
If no one has read "The Red Tent," I recommend it highly.
