What are you reading?

Ok similiar to the what are you listening to? thread.


I am reading "The Mayor of Casterbridge" by Thomas Hardy for English.

This thread does have an ulterior motive!.....I want to get ideas as to what to read in my own time.Need to go out and buy a pile of new books.lol.

I'm not actually reading something at the moment, but I borrowed a bunch of books from my uncle and alot of them are by Robert Ludlum, so I'm trying to choose which to read.

What Could He Be Thinking? : How a Man's Mind Really Works by Michael Gurian.

It's a book written by someone who attacks this question from a scientific standpoint. He attempts to show that mens and womens brains are physically "wired" differently. For the guys, it'll give you some scientific "ammo" for whenever your SO* gets onto you for the umpteenth time; for the women, maybe it'll answer some of those questions you've always asked in order to keep you from getting onto your SO* for the umpteenth time!

* - Significant Other

Life of Pi by Yann Martel. Pretty good so far.

May I suggest A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius by Dave Eggers?

Actually reading 2 really good books right now:
The Elements of Murder: A History of Poison by John Emsley
and The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova.
Both excellent and very long. Not light reading, by any means.

I just finished "The Kite Runner" by Khalad Hassani

If you like really good fiction, I strongly recommend it.
It is one of the best I have read in years.
