Today I've read a small book titled The Miracles of the Slavic Gods. It was some kind of introduction to the Slavic mithology.

On the airplane on the way out to New York I just read an e-copy of OJ Simpson's confession book, "If I Did It".....
wow..... if for some reason he *is*innocent he sure has a vivid imagination......  :879

I honestly have no interest in anything that man says. I'm sure he rationalizes everything to himself.

Right now I'm reading two books. One is a classic, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest by Ken Kesey and the second one is a contemporary satirical book by Sue Townsend Number 10. I've read several books of her and I love her sense of humour.

I'm about half way through the first book in the "Sword of Truth" series called Wizard's First Rule. The popular series is a New York Times bestseller, and has it's own TV show based off of it. If you are into fantasy, I'd definitely recommend both!

So far I'm about half way through "The Zombie Survival Guide."  Hilarious, and pretty educational too.... just in case you get attacked by Zombies.  It's a really fun read, I'd suggest it to anyone  :3456

I just started re-reading the Dune books.


Also, on the comic book front, the new Lone Ranger series from Dynamite is amazing.

I love biographies and true crime books. I have just finished reading a book about the man who caused the worlds worst shooting spree by a single person. He was Martin Bryant who murdered 35 people in the town of Port Arthur in Tasmania in 1996. The book is called Born or Bred. Martin Bryant: The Making of A Mass Murderer. It came out earlier this years and was written by Australian journalists Robert Wainwright and Paola Totaro. I could not put the book down. It was gripping, fascinating and very chilling. An intriguing exploration on what could have contributed to making Martin who he was.

The book I am about to read is very different. It is called The Wolf by Richard Guiliatt and Peter Hohnen and is about a German raider in the first world war that travelled the world destroying ships and taking prisoners. A little know event of the World War One.

Truth be told, I'm not reading anything.

My favorite book is Catcher in the Rye. I've read it at least 5 times. I am flying overseas for my trip so I do plan on picking up a book. I was going to buy The Road by Cormac McCarthy. I've heard amazing things from my friend who has very distinguishing tastes.

I just started re-reading the Dune books.

Just finished those about a month ago - great series, although it gets a bit drawn out in the middle...

Now reading "Shantaram" - it's a true story about a guy who escaped from an australian prison and went to live in the slums in Bombay... thoroughly recommend it - he's a truly excellent author. I only own it coz my gran gave it to me a year or so ago and I hadn't got around to reading it until now... Love reading though! So many good books, so little time!

I also recently finished reading "Human is" by Philip K Dick - another great author

I've just started reading  The Girl With the Dragon Tatoo by Stieg Larsson. It's SO good.

I haven't read a book in months, but I picked this up for my commute into my job this morning and I wasn't able to put it down til I got home. Shame that Larsson died soon after he handed in the trilogy of books to his publisher, but at least I have 2 more to look forward to :)
On an extended IYNO break... for now.

I've just finished "The Stone of Destiny" by Ian Hamilton after seeing the film that was based on it (reviewd on the films forum).

Just finished "The Time Traveler's Wife" by Audrey Neffeneggar (sp?), which was insanely awesome by the way.

Now I'm reading "Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict" by Laurie Rigler. So far, it's not looking like a good book in its own right, but for Austen fans such as myself, it's pretty cute. :p
