What I've Been Reading

I went to the library. (Yea!) So, here is what I've been reading.
Hayden actually checked this one out but I'm reading it, and so far it's really good.
I was thinking that this was probably going to be one of those books you start to read but don't finish because it's either too boring or too hard to understand, but from what I read so far, this guy's really good at breaking it all down and making this programming stuff understandable.

I've really been wanting to play an instrument and we have a piano, so I decided to try to teach myself. This book seems to be working; as I can play (kinda badly, but getting better) stuff like Yankee Doodle and Mary Had a Little Lamb.
At first, the guy who wrote this book was getting on my nerves a little bit by his corny jokes when all I wanted to do was learn to play piano, but as the book progressed, his jokes have either gotten better or I'm getting used to them. And no, I'm not a dummy. :)

I thought candlemaking would be fun so I got this book. I'm just now getting to the part of how to make candles, because the first half was mostly history, which suprisingly was pretty interesting. The only bad thing so far was a chapter called "Candlemaking as a Sacred Art" which told about new age and false religious practice type stuff that I skipped over.

So, that's what I've been reading. I haven't been able to find any good fiction books though so, if any one has some suggestions on good classic literature, Christian fiction, or appropriate fantasy, I'd be happy to hear your input.
