I've just finished my current crop of books and need a new book to read. Picking what I am going to read usually takes more time than reading the first 100 pages of the book, so I am coming to you all for help. I'll leave out my comic choices for another day (I'm probably going with my deluxe Avengers Assembled Vol. 5).
I've decided this go around, I want to read something I've never read before. Here are your choices for me:
The Stand - Stephen King
Phantom of the Opera - Gaston Leroux
The Tales of Beedle the Bard - J.K. Rowling
The Fortunate Pilgrim - Mario Puzo (I know it's a surprise that I haven't read this yet. It is one of two Puzo books I haven't read. The Dark Arena is the other.)
Persuasion by Jane Austen (this and Pride and Prejudice are my wife's 2 favorite Austen tales. She says I need to stop making fun of how lame Austen's stories are until I actually read one. P&P is about twice as long as Persuasion, so I picked Persuasion)
