      What are you reading?

      I just finished "The Taking" by Dean Koontz and it was awesome!

      I guess now I can finish another book I started by him... I was half-way through it when I started The Taking lol

      How about y'all?

      "Freakonomics." It reads like a Malcom Gladwell book ("Blink," "The Tipping Point," "Outliers"). If you're into non-fiction I recommend it.

      I'm reading "Doing Nothing" It's a history on loungers, slackers etc. and what their role in society is.

      Last read: The City and the Stars ~ Arthur C. Clarke

      Currently reading: Bravo Two Zero ~ Andy McNab.

      I'm really enjoying Bravo Two Zero. The mentality of the SAS is fascinating. They seem to really enjoy being at war. It's also got some awesome moments of gallows humour and sheer badassed-ness.

      I read that book last year. It's very interesting and gives you facts you wouldn't normally think about.

      Wow.. lots of serious books out there. I may try a couple. I've heard others recommend Freakonomics.

      The 33 Strategies of War

      It draws from history and discusses how the strategies can be used in your everyday social life. An interesting read, at the least.

      Four books that I would say I was in the process of reading.

      Fountainhead - Ayn Rand
      Enjoying immensely. Very little to go now.

      One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest - Ken Kesey
      Compulsary reading, but very, very good. Similarly coming to the end with this.

      Turn of the Screw - Henry James
      About ten pages to go. Haven't picked it up in a month. Above two interrupted me. Intend to tidy up after above two, so not long. Didn't find it compelling, but interesting as fuck. Unreliable narrator makes ghost story fun.

      The Outsider - Albert Camus
      Borrowed it very recently, read 41 pages on bus journey home. Promising so far.

      Next books along the line ought to be American Gods, House of Leaves, On the Road and a collection of Kafka.

      Actually happy with my reading right now. Feel I have good stuff in progress and more good stuff to come. And if all else fails I fall back to Dorian Grey. Which I will finish. Some day.

      In The Buddha's Words: An Anthology of Discourses from the Pali Canon

      And then intermittently,

      Critique of Pure Reason, Kant
      Buddhist Mahayana Texts, edited by E.B. Cowell

      I haven't started a new fiction after re-reading Steven King's IT. I think I'm going to go for a Frank Herbert or a Carl Sagan. I have Contact in my bookshelf and I've read about a quarter of it already. I might just finish it up.

      A Spy In The House of Love - Anais Nin
      The Road and The Car in American Life - John B. Rae
      Poets Against The War - edited by Sam Hamill
      Slaughterhouse Five - Kurt Vonnegut [a re-read]

      Just finished:
      The Will To Doubt - Bertrand Russell [a very short read]
      The Constant Companion: Inspirations for Daily Living from "The Thousand Names Of The Lord" - Eknath Easwaran, which I only managed to put down once. This book, and the Vedic poem it is based on is amazing.

      I have the annoying habit of starting many books at once, and choosing to read whichever current one best suits my mood.

      I went to Borders to try to find another book by Michael (sp) and Kathleen Gear, but they only had some hardbacks and I couldn't afford those... Which is just as well. I can now finish "The Darkest Evening of the Year". It's a good book. I don't know why it's taking me so long to get through it and why it's failing to keep me interested.

      While at Borders, I bought 2 "box" calendars and 3 wall calendars for $1.00 each. I'm going to use the wall calendars for posters. SO the trip was still a good one... but that's beside the point I guess
