:sillysmi: so i'm curious... what's the last book you read, the one you're currently reading (if any) and the next one in line?


as for me...

last: stiff: the curious lives of human cadavers by mary roach
current: the angel of darkness by caleb carr (it's the sequel to the alienist which is my favorite novel.)
next: suicide blonde by darcey steinke

ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooohhhhhh.

well as i'm busy studying at uni right now, i've not had time to read much over the past few months. i'm still reading The Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera. It's a great book....absolutely stunning writing. Before that i read Everything Is Illuminated by Jonathan Safran Foer for the second time. One of my very favourite novels. I cannot recommend it enough.

next i will be reading a novel called Disappearing Moon Cafe. I read it about 4 years ago, but i'll be teaching it soon so i need to reread it in order to plan a unit for it.

I'm currently reading Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six... I like a bit of action.

Ditto above...

now for the 3rd time I'm reading Lonesome Dove (the only Western I've ever read, it's great) and Working (Studs Terkel) and have quite a few lined up (including Lovely Bones by Sebold, I think, which someone has mentioned before).

This is a good thread, I'm always up for suggestions and interested in what other folks are reading.

Principles of Accounting II and Science: An integrated approach :puke:

I have a whole stack of books to read when I get a break from school. I bought some of Bill Bryson's books and really look forward to reading those.

Oh...I haven't read "A Brief History of Time" for a while. That's a good read.

I'm currently re-reading Lord of The Rings for the 20th time. I'll probably re-read 'The Silmarillion' right after.

I was home sick the other day so I read...'Photographing Landscapes' by John Hedgecoe
