I've read both Middlesex and House of Leaves and can tell you they're both totally worth the time :)

Nightmares and Dreamscapes - Stephen King

Dreaming. 10-03-2009 09:24 PM

I'm working my way through Middlesex. As I say, it's a fantastic book... It's just taking so much time! I bought Virgin Suicides today in Oxfam, in the hope that it'll speed me up. I've still got another three Seb Falkes books I want to read, plus I bought two other books. And I want to re-read "If nobody speaks of remarkable things" by Jon McGregory (possibly?) and Lord of the Flies again. And I've got a Wittgenstein and somebody elses book to read at some point. And I need to consider uni work at some point!

I'm reading Killers Of The Dawn by Darren Shan. Just decided to read 'The Saga' all over again. The series has twelve books and I've just started this one... it's the ninth book! I've read the rest of them in less than three days.

I'm also attempting to read a William Shakespeare play (my dad has the complete collection in a big leather-bound book), Macbeth, but I'm finding it really hard. My brain and old English do NOT mix well!

Yeah, I love books. Can you tell?
:tongue2:

A trashy romance novel, light reading. Junk food for my brain. I'm waiting for a couple of books on loan between libraries though.

I just finished "To Kill A Mockingbird" by Harper Lee, and I"m about to get started on "Helen of Troy" by... I can't remember the author, and I don't want to go get the book, but "To Kill a Mockingbird" was amazing, powerful, emotional, and stunning. I'd recomend it to anyone. Perhaps with a PG13 rating... due to violence and subject matter.

Ah, once you get past the language barrier, the story is amazing. I know how it is. I had to try it like four times before I could get past the language bit.
Have you read Romeo and Juliet? The story is really so lovely; horribly grusome and tragic, but lovely. If you haven't read it, try reading it from the end (if you already know the story, which I'm guessing you do), the very last few scenes, because they help you to understand a little of where the story goes, so you can focus more on figuring out what the words mean. Haha.
Anyway... I goes now... :-)

i just finished the secret life of bees by sue monk kidd, and i'm looking to borrow a copy of a beautiful mind by sylvia nasar from my library to read.

the secret life of bees was just wonderful. i watched the movie right after i finished the book, they were both so beautiful. i'd recommend it to anyone.

Risk: the science and politics of fear- Dan Gardner

tigris 13-03-2009 09:20 PM

I'm reading Anna Karenina (by Tolstoy) at the moment.... It's so good once you get into it! This is like the 4th or 5th time I started it, but the only time I've got beyond the first 100 pages... I'm like 2/3 of the way through now.

Then I've got One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest (Ken Kesey) lined up for my next one.
