I'm reading scientific papers. Ten of them. They're eating me alive, trust me you don't want to know the details.

When someone says "trust me, you don't know want to know the datails", then I really, really, want to know the details.

Night by Elie Wiesel, a very disturbing and revealing view on the life of a Holocaust victim.

I am reading Patrick White's great 'The Tree of Man'...published in 1956...it is surprisingly easily read....it is a mighty powerful novel....some may call it a bit depressing...but not me....it is simply great !!!!!

Just finished reading The Road by Cormac McCarthy. Its a really bleak, dark book, but could be even bleaker. Anyone else read it?

I know I'm a bit old for it, but the Ember series, The City of Ember, The People of Sparks, and The Prophet of Yonwood. It's a very great series, I've read it a few times, I just can never get enough... Schoolwise, stuck w/ Julius Caesar...

The Story Sisters by Alice Hoffman.....

Story telling doesn't get any better than this....Alice is quite simply a great writer and story teller.....but I am biased as I think everything she writes is just wonderful....if you haven't read her...do so....you wont be disappointed !!!!

Well, I've assigned a massive goal for the holidays, during my break, I'm planning on reading a specific book of mine, a collection of all the works of Poe. It's been a good while since I've touched his work, and I'm craving a bit of darker work, so this works out rather well.

Gloriously funny - Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett.

Highly recommended for relaxation (you may appreciate a break from EAP, Kon!)

I could dream it was made into a film, directed by Tim Burton and starring Johnny Depp in both lead roles, but guess that's expecting too much!
