I read Robin Hobb's books, fucking love them. i've been reading a book about vikings recently, the name slips my mind at the moment, Son of Odin possibly? and i've also been reading Nietzsche - Beyond good and evil.

edit: i swear there was a thread like this a few months ago...

Yes, I searched "books" and "novels." There's a few threads I remembered that were lengthy in there.

Currently I'm not reading any books. Just stuff on the net about plastering 100 year old ceilings and gardening stuff and an occasional magazine.

I like Dean Koontz books, bodybuilding magazines, and I like reading about horror movies and shit like that. Usually at online bulletin boards, but it's still reading.

ok fine, i fantasize about making love to alien women while wearing one of these

http://people.csail.mit.edu/rahimi/helmet/

edit: no but seriously, people give me shit about reading that stuff, i like it like a good suspense novel. i used to be scared shitless of being abducted as a kid so this stuff interests me now that im older. so i dont like to talk about it among the more high-brow literary friends.

i borrowed the book from some people who are building up an impressive home library. i was really embarrassed to ask for it, i got funny looks and stuff, but whatever. i dig this stuff

I like reading things that are grammatically correct, for one.
I've always been a big fan of John Grisham, when I do read. Which isn't often at all. Actually, almost never unless its required by school. Its not a hobby of mine.

Last thing I read was two Michael Moore books, and "Lords of Chaos."

That Nietzsche book's actually called Ecce Homo. 'Why I am so Wise' is one of the chapter titles that the publishers of that series of books ('great ideas' or whatever) decided to put where the title should be.

My reading breaks down into what I read for class and what I read for pleasure.

Class:
Martin Heidegger, Being and Time
Lewis Carrol, The Annotated Alice: The Definitive Version (annotations by Martin Gardner)

Pleasure:
Alain Robbe-Grillet, Towards a New Novel
Jorge Luis Borges, The Selected Non-Fiction
Jim Goad, The Redneck Manifesto
Charles Bukowski, The Days Run Away Like Wild Horses Over the Hills
Ludwig Wittgenstein, Remarks on Colour
Stanley Cavell, Must We Mean What We Say?

I think that's it.

Oh, and Moe Blunts seems to be reading the hippy canon.

Ive been into a fair bit of Patrick Moore lately.As well as other Cosmology/ Astromony/ Quantum related books.Actually,Im reading a good book by Martin Rees called 'Just Six Numbers'.Its fairly simple,but really puts the universe into perspective.Iwas big on philosophy,not so much now.More interested in science at the moment.
As far as fiction goes,Ive read ALOT of Wilbur Smith,King,Grisham,Forbes,ect.Ive been into hitchhikers guide for years,and I admit I havent really 'grown out' of Harry Potter.The DaVinci code is THE most over-rated book Ive come across.I cant stand the hype around it.
