    I'm reading a series of books titled Boudica, 4 books, I've read Dreaming the Eagle, Dreaming the Bull and I'm on dreaming the hound. The author has done a very good job of trying to recreate a celtic/Briton society and has put a very interesting perspective on druids making them human. The author is a good crime writer normally but is interested in Shamanism to which adds even more perspective on the druids
    Great books, READ THEM!

    Carrion Comfort by Dan Simmons

    Each of the substories is frightningly disturbing on it's own. But together it makes for an amazing read!

    I read it every year or so, never get bored of it.

    Wuthering Heights...

    Well...I Have to Read it Atleast 3 Times Before the End of May When Exams Start...Kinda Half Way Through it...

    I Find it Particuarly Mellow Dramatic...The Characters are so Exagerated I Cringe...

    There is Not One Character Who I Like...Bleugh...

    There is so Much Violence Also...And Death...

    But it's an OK Read I Guess...Rather Haunting...

    Like a Dream...

    Like the Moors Represent a Dream State...Another Realm...Hmm...*makes Notes*

    Beautiful Language...Apart From Joseph...However I Do Kinda Understand What He's Saying...If I Slow my Reading Pace Down...

    Cathy's and Heathcliffs' Love For One Another is Breath taking...

    Rae Beth's Resurection and the Dark Mother. I was with her right up to the point when I realised most of the book is about her 'past life memory' of being a priestess in Atlantis and tells you virtually nothing about resurection. Oh well at least its from the library.
    Also reading Talking, a collection of quotes by Mr Manson. He actually says some good stuff but I feel his take on religion a bit odd and that he is more sad (ie unhappy not pathetic) than bad. Not sure he is anti everything and desparately needs to be hedonistic as a positive choice. I wonder if he is just so unhappy he uses attack as a form of defence. I read somewhere that he went through stages of self harm and cannot separate his stage persona from reality. Sad because it is so self destructive in a guy that actually has a brain and something to say (not that I always agree with what he says) which is unusual for a rockstar.

    My witchy stuff was very influenced by Starhawk's 'Spiral Dance' and 'Dreaming the Dark'. A few months ago a friend called to ask if I wanted to join a few people to do a ritual on the beach with Starhawk. Of course, I did. There were only 13 of us (!) and it was very loose and unplanned. I was like a gob-smacked fan, but she turned out to be unassuming, charming and gentle. She's now a full-on activist at global summits etc. An amazing and inspiring pagan leader.

    For a brilliant read try: Poisonwood Bible by Barbra Kingsolver. She's a really wonderful writer, with characters you can't help but love.

    Terry Pratchett - Thud...An awsume book. Most his storys are actually just a fantasised up version of real event's, you can make connections with quite alot of them if you think about it.
