I'm currently reading Catch-22 by Joseph Heller.
It's crazy.

I was reading 'The crimes of Jack the Ripper' but after two days of not reading it & getting slightly confused I gave up on it. LOL.

& as of tonight, I'm going to start reading Dissolution by C.J Mason

I'm reading a kiddy book called Varjak Paw, about a cat who does martial arts. It's got some lovely illustrations and I've really enjoyed it so far.
xxxxxxx

I'm reading Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen. Why does life always seem so much more endearing back then?

Shakespeare's Strumpet 21-02-2008 01:34 AM

Candide by Voltaire. <3...I love Voltaire. He was the master of dark humor. And, as far as classic literature goes, Candide is not a hard read...but it also depends on the translation. The language is simplistic but the morals complex. Ultimate read for anyone interested in philosophy, politics, or just intelligence.

I'm reading '"Son" A Psychopath and His Victims' by Jack Olsen. It freaks me out because it's a true story about a rapist who lived in the same city I live in, only about 30 years ago. I can just see all the places he describes in my head because I've been to all of them, and AGGHH. It's just weird.

I bought that because I was at Norwich train station and I'd finished my book and I had a four-hour train journey home ahead of me and it was the only thing in Smiths that wasn't the worst kind of chicklit. I thought it was going to irritate me but I seem to recall it was actually surprisingly good. This was summer 2006, mind, so I may be remembering it through rose-tinted glasses!

I finished The Wasp Factory and the Murdoch novel (god, that was depressing) and I'm now reading The Nomad of Time by Michael Moorcock. And I'm still re-reading the Harry Potters, and I still don't know why. I'll probably finish the fourth one tonight.

I like to read!
 
I'm reading Mercy by Jodi Picoult (I've already read her books My Sister's Keeper, Vanishing Acts, The Pact, Plain Truth, and The Tenth Circle). I'm also reading Little Women for school (I'm on part 2). I just finished Pretties (the second book in the Uglies trilogy...which actually has 4 books now).

yeah, what happened was that i was in oxfam at work, and it was really dead. so i just picked up the book to read while i was working. i read it for about an hour and i was totally surprised by how good it was. i ended up buying it, obviously.
i guess probably because it's more than just "i got drunk this happened that happened i passed out" which is what i thought it was going to be. the writer addresses some different issues in it aswell.

I'm about 3/4 way through A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man by James Joyce, and I'm enjoying it. Though, it's a pretty heavy read at times it's still very good.
