I'm currently reading Mossflower by Brian Jaques.
gforce422 is awesome because:
-He made the absolute nicest comments about me in the other topic. I didn't respond to them yet, because I suck, but they are greatly appreciated! =D
-I would say he would also be a good runner up as one of the nicest people alive.
-He joined the IRC sometimes. But not enough, I say! Chat moar =D
-He is evidently only 18 year old but he could easily pass for 25. =D
-He is a drummer like *I* am and this in itself is cool.

Chicken Soup for the Writer's Soul. I had put it away for years but decided to dig it out for NaNoWriMo, and I'm still reading it.

The Know-It-All, by some completely unknown author. I found it in the humor section of a book store. It's about a dude that reads every volume of the encyclopedia and turns into a boring, awkward, irritating, know-it-all who's random uninteresting fact-telling brings conversations to an awkward standstill which embarrasses his wife and makes him look like a douche. It's rather humorous.

I think I have a bookmark in my copy of that because I was reading it after I finished redwall.

I should continue it. It was either Mossflower or Martin The Warrior.

You should read 'em chronologically. Martin the Warrior comes right before Mossflower IIRC.

I believe that's the one I was reading, actually, so I think I can do this chronologically, to a point =P
