What books are you currently reading?

Recommended Posts

What books are you reading right now, and what are they about? Currently I am reading a book called Playing Off the Rail about a rich author who takes a professional pool player across the country to gamble. It is pretty interesting actually. I just got finished with Unbearable Lightness Of Being.

:lol:

 

I didnt get banned. Can you grow up a little and quit being such an idiot. It seems that you are stuck in a pattern where you act like an idiot then hope one person laughs and you get a reaction, then nobody laughs, then you talk shit and say how you where "joking", then one person shuts you up by making you look like an asshole (which you are) infront of everyone on 12oz, then you announce you are on hiatus (for whatever reason), then you are back to repeat the process over and over again. Just give it a rest, friend.

Way to jack my semi-long standing book thread streak. You even stole the name!

 

I am reading Key to Rebecca by Ken Follett because my bud suggested it. It's a WWII spy novel.

Angels & Demons by Dan Brown, author of The DaVinci Code

 

 

Its really good....but, its a little too familiar.

 

And I just finished Lullaby by Palahniuk....also really good, also a little too familiar.

 

I'm also kind of reading Rebel Without a Crew

It's about Robert Rodriguez and how he made his first movie and got into Hollywood...pretty interesting.

in the past two weeks i read:

 

The Tesseract by Alex Garland - don't really want to explain, but just read it

Domain by Steven Alten - book about the end of the world and this one guy who knows about it and is trying to prevent it but is in an insane asylum

I Am Legend by Richard Matheson - a book about the only man left in a world full of vampires, and how he tries to survive

The Jungle by Upton Sinclair - book about socialism and the meat industry in chicago

 

definitely recomend all of them. The Tesseract kills, Domain and I Am Legend are both very good, and The Jungle was a good read, but a little boring at a handfull of parts

 

About to start The Human Stain by Tim Roth
