The Iron Jackal by Chris Wooding. Retribution Falls and The Black Lung Captain were quite good.
Le Comte de Monte-Cristo, it's just so heavy.

Or a favourite of mine :).
"What is better than wisdom? Woman. And what is better than a good woman? Nothing."

I still have a copy of this book that my grandmother gave me. She had an old edition that was written in its original Middle English. Considering its age I think it is a good and funny book, built up of 20 stories if I remember correctly. $1.50 seems live a very good price for such a classic book, that's one of the great things about visiting used bookshops, you can pickup some wonderful and rare books for a small price.
I actually came upon that first line you quoted and was trying to remember where I'd recently seen it, then checking this thread it dawned on me:P. I finished The Knight's Tale recently and have begun The Miller's Tale. I forgot how richly funny these bawdy stories were, great fun.
Put Stephen King's Doctor Sleep behind me a couple of days ago. A shallow attempt at a sequel to The Shining, it rarely rises a hair above uninspired pulp. King freely admitted to relying on someone else for research to ensure continuity between the books; you can guess how much authentic interest the author must have had in writing a quality successor to what is perhaps his most applauded novel. Stay away from this, is my recommendation.

Got this edition (ISBN13: 9781444761160) via a bargain-bin deal almost for free, happy I didn't pay full price. For what it's worth, this is a perfectly fine hardcover. As a door stop, it will do OK.

I'm reading the trilogy of Corum, by Michael Moorcock. Also reading really heavy notes for one of my university subjects, but I don't think that's the aim of this post lol.

sanfueg: After I read 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami, I started reading A Wild Sheep Chase and right now I'm reading the sequel Dance Dance Dance. Up next, all his other books.
I missed this before. I love Murakami, having read Norwegian Wood, Wind-Up Bird Chronicles and Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World, and After the quake. Highly recommend the middle two most of all.Happy readin'!

Thank you for the recommendations, I just got a great deal for eight Murakami books I didn't have: The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle, After the quake, Kafka on the Shore, Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World, Sputnik Sweetheart, After Dark, What I Talk About When I Talk About Running and Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage
I got all of them. Now, I'm missing three books that interest me: Norwegian Wood, South of the Border, West of the Sun and Underground.
But before that, I'm gonna read what I got.
