How about The Invisibles?
Please, try to make them reconsider, not assure them.
I'll cut you, Juan.

You folks need a good dose of Franco-Belgian comics.
Read Asterix. Not my thing.
I posit it is the single best comic I've ever read, but a lot of it depends on the quality of the translation.
When I learn French I'll call you back on it. And no, it's not a joke.
I will have to buy a copy of this book, and then make this thread because Blankets is awesome.

Asterix and Tintin. Two series I utterly adored as a child. One day I'll buy a hardcover collection of both, but right now, it's extremely expensive to buy them one by one.
Sabriel is an AWESOME book. Lirael can get a little draggy but then Abhorsen makes it all worth it.
I'm so needing books right now.
^Wow Yuan are you related to my husband? his family has every Tintin book and all of Asterix and Obelix too. he made me read all of Tintin before we could get married; it was a requirement.

I loved Asterix. Tintin, not so much but I read them nonetheless.
I only watched the animated series and read an issue of Asterix. I'll admit that it was translated to Spanish and it might have been a turn off.
^^^He made you read all of them? I used to borrow them from the local library. My mother would read them to me occasionally, since she liked them as well. I'd like copies so I can read them to my young cousins/nieces/nephews in turn.

I personally like The Wheel Of Time.
Huh...I'll should hunt those down, Cygs. I need to read something. Been a long time since I've read something.
Stuff by Isabel Allende is good light reading.
I've recently gotten into reading Italo Calvino's work with If On A Winters Night A Traveler. Loving it.

Greatest thing Chile has produced. Well, her and Neruda.
You should! :^O
It's a bit cliched at first, but it gets over it ^_^
Also: Dave Eggers' A Heartbreaking Work Of Staggering Genius.

Oh, is that not actually pretentious drivel? Cool.
Which one, Tze?
A Heartbreaking etc., Italo Calvino is never drivel. We don't actually have a page on him but we have some on his books so that's okay.
Meh, could mean Allende as well. -shrug- Anyway, Calvino seems like someone I'd read.
Although I'm hunting down Sabato right now. I've read some of his articles on art and I loved them.
^I'll remedy that when I have the chance. Italo Calvino is one of my favourite authors, and If on a winter's night a traveller is my favourite work by him.
I've only read Invisible Cities. Unfortunately. Fantastic thing.
And speaking of Chile Argentina, I need to read Hopscotch still. so many books, so many, so many
