I am about to start re-reading Harry Potter 7.  I know, not nearly as impressive as Lolita, but hey I know I will enjoy it!

Brilliant idea Jessie!

Well I'm currently reading a biography of the legendary American Jazz Saxophonist Charlie 'YardBird' Parker by Ross Russell. Ross was his manager for a number of years and also the President of Dial Records.

'Dubbelliefde' (Dubble Love) by Adiraan van Dis, a Dutch writer.
It's a story about a student in Amsterdam who takes life as it comes, but he gets confused by all the influences from the big city, and in the end he loses insight in what is real and what is fake. It's THE best book of Dutch literature in my opinion.

And I'm working on my own ofcourse!  :8767

Jessie,

Great idea. I'm not reading anything now, but this thread might inspire me to choose something someone else is reading or just read.

Any people into historical stuff?

Clockwork Orange is a classic.

I really enjoyed Angels and Demons too.  I liked that one better than Da Vinci Code.

The last book I (had to) read was "Moon Palace" by Paul Auster. It was for my English class. The first 100 pages were very boring but when I brought them off it turned out to be a very interesting story. It's about a young man looking for his identity, one of those coming of age stories.

At the moment I read "Grand Avenue" by Joy Fielding. I love her books!

yeah i hope so as well. Angels and Demons is a far better book than the Da Vinci Code, it's wierd how it hasn't got any attention up until now though in the press.


I guess it's less controversial.

Hey Vanesa...check out Cj's review here...

And just a note on the book I'm reading. If anyone wants to know what freakish natural talent, combined with a dogged determination and a never-say-die attitude looks like personified, it's got to all point to Charlie Parker. Still regarded as the best jazz improviser and interpreter ever to pick up an instrument. This is a brilliantly well written book.
