I've got three books to read, first one up will be Catcher in the Rye, I never read it in High School. Better now then never.


Hands down, my favorite book.

I'm reading the Unicorn Chronicles to my kids at night.

I'm listening to the Mass Effect books (1&2) right now.

Can anybody suggest a good space opera?

Honor Harrington was good for about 3 books until it got too political.

I just listened to Stark's War and I found it a little bland and slow.




I've heard nothing but good things about this. Gonna read it next myself if I ever get time to finish the book I'm on now. Dune is a good one too if you haven't already read those books.

I'm trying to stay away from books like Dune because they end up being way too political. Honor Harrington ended up doing that by book 3 and I dropped the series because of too much behind the scenes talk and not enough action/actually doing something.

After Mass Effect 3 I'm going to change pace with something that caught my interest: The Painted Man (aka the Warded Man) book 1 of the Demon cycle.

Been reading this myself for a little while now. Truthfully I'm not all that impressed. The book is certainly dense and intricate, but the writing itself I find shockingly pedestrian.

I always liked The Will to Power, even though it technically wasn't an "official" Nietzsche work.

I am currently on a break to decide whether I want to do graduate school or go for something like public relations at the college level, so aside from work I have some time on my hands.

I recently finished...

L'Étranger (Camus)
French Kiss (Hébert)
The Chess Machine (Lohr)
Catch-22 (Heller)

I am reading a few books at the moment (in order of expected completion)

Darkness at Noon (Koestler)
The Tipping Point (Gladwell)
Moby - (Melville)
UNHCR: The Politics and Practice of Refugee Protection (Betts, Loescher and Milner)

By mid-October, my reading list will consist of:

The Human Condition (Arendt)
Rant (my first Palahniuk book)
The Island Civilizations of Polynesia (Suggs)

Long-term commitments for my French improvement, hoping to finish before December:

Les Misérables (Hugo)
Les Artisans de la Paix (MacMillan)
