Reading List For 2012 (so far)

John Carter: The Gods of Mars (Book Two)
John Carter: The Warlord of Mars (Book Three)
The Mark of Zorro (The Curse of Capistrano, 1919.)


Also looking into reading Hood (The King Raven Trilogy) it sounds like a pretty sweet re-telling of Robin Hood.

My gf got me a kindle last christmas and so far I've put on it, American Psycho, the complete Sherlock Holmes works, and all the John Carter novels(Amazon has a deal right now for only $.99).

I'm up for recommendations if any of you have some. I really enjoy horror the most, don't recommend King or Barker though, I own pretty much all their novels.
