If I Could Drive a Mixer! and The Berenstain Bears New Baby........
Antrax by Terry Brooks.
Just re-read Angela's Ashes by Frank McCourt. One of my favorite books.
Reading Arrowsmith by Sinclair Lewis (thanks to my girlfriend.)
Just finished Joseph Heller's Catch-22 and I absolutely loved it. The way Heller blended comedy and tragedy was masterful. It takes you on a 462 page emotional roller coaster ride. Go read it if you haven't.
Everythings Eventual - Stephen King (for me)
The Great Gatsby - F Scott Fitzgerald (for school)
John Keegan - The Face of Battle.

I need to get back to reading more. So many books I haven't read, movies really don't do it for me like books do.
You, Never? Did the Kenosha Kid?
The book currently on my nightstand it Doyle Brunson's "Super System...".
Got "A Salty Piece of Land" by Jimmy Buffett for my birthday. I haven't started that yet.
I have to agree, the Great Gatsby is one of my favourite books.
Just finished reading High Fidelity, by Nick Hornby.
I believe there is a film also? If you haven't read the book, I highly recommend it. Hornby has a very witty sense of humour
The Maltese Falcon - Dashiell Hammett
Not too bad.
Pollardfreak - I remember having to read The Great Gatsby for a Gr.11 American Literature Class...
reading Bird Watching atm, Latest Goodkind is next on the pile
So Long And Thanks For All The Fish.
If you've done 6 impossible things today?
Then why not have Breakfast at Milliways!
I'm reading a psychology book about teenage girls and why they are depressed. I think personally it's because they've read the book about why they are depressed. My lord.
I just read the latest Goodkind book Chainfire. I hate his writing, but I keep reading it anyway. For those of you reading Goodkind, if you like that kind of stuff you should check out George RR Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire. He is the best sci-fi/fantasy writer out there right now, IMO.
Currently, I'm reading Blink by Malcomb Gladwell. It is fascinating and a quick read about how our minds work.
Paradise Lost-John Milton. Tough read, but worth it.
Finished 'Paradoxia: A Predators Diary' by Lydia Lunch last week. If you want to read about depravity in relationships then that's the book for you. About 2/3 of the way though it gets kind of tired because every chaper/story is samey. Maybe better to read over a month or two rather than a week or two.
Reading some Howard Zinn. Nothing I haven't already read elsewhere but some parts are interesting. One thing sort of bothers me about him and that's that he's a socialist and his outlook permeates his writing. I suppose that you could say that about anyone's books but at times I find myself reading and thinking "Oh God... back to 'class' and the distribution of wealth' *sigh*". Probably worth a read if you're younger and haven't been exposed to the things he writes about elsewhere. Then again, it could be a complete waste of time for you *shrug*.
Going to start "I, *****head: a life in punk" by Joey Keithley next time I want something a bit lighter to read. He's the singer for Vancouver's D.O.A. who are more or less an institution at this point. Been playing anthemic punk rock for well over 25 years now and this is his book on that experience I guess. He had large excerpts on his website for several years but the book just came out recently. Some may still be online through his record label Sudden Death (think of that in hockey terms).
Anyone know where a copy of Ball Four can be found? I'd like to read that.
I recently finished "A Lesson Before Dying" by Ernest J. Gaines for my English class. I also just finished "Knight-fall" about Bobby Knight. I can't remember the author. Right now, I'm reading "Tooth and Nail" for another class, and "Loose Balls" on my own choice.
Transfer of Power by Vince Flynn
The Third Option by Vince Flynn
Just read Slaughterhouse-Five a couple times in the past week and got about two-thirds of the way thru Timequake (both by Kurt Vonnegut) last night on my flight home.
Morgawr by Terry Brooks.
The Sword of Shannara by Terry Brooks.
Currently: The Elfstones of Shannara by Terry Brooks..
Yeah im reading a series. Pretty good so far.
