Nerdfighters

So, what books are people reading right now? What are they about? What do you think of them? Would you recommend them?

 

I tend to read two or three books at a time. Currently, I'm making my way through the following:
  • The Omnivore's Dilemma by Michael Pollan
  • Ishmael by Daniel Quinn

I only just started Ishmael, but The Omnivore's Dilemma is very good.

I'm reading three books right now:

  • Looking for Alaska by John Green
  • Hamlet by Shakespeare (obviously...)
  • A book of poems by Emily Dickinson

I REALLY love Looking For Alaska, but I guess that's sort of a reason I'm on this website. It's my first time reading it, and I'm about halfway through. I really love the insight that this book gives to hard subjects, so I would definitely recommend it. I'm reading Hamlet for my English class right now, but surprisingly I like Shakespeare, so I'd recommend that too. I sort of liked the dramatic ending. And Emily Dickinson is awesome, so you should definitely read her poems. :) I like them a lot too.

read the Legend of Drizzt graphic novel last night, now on to the Dresden Files with Storm Front

awesome stuff so far.  Butcher is such a nerd... heh, snickersnack...

anyway, just got into Fool Moon and i'm reading up on asl

Dead Man's Folly by Agatha Christie

i so want her next one to be out already.

Just finished Moon Called and Blood Bound by  Patricia Briggs and am about a third of the way through Iron Kissed.

I have read the whole series before and really like it.  I actually borrowed an electronic copy of the first five books in this series from my library, so I get to enjoy them all again.  The library doesn't have an electronic copy of the sixth book (though they do have the audio version) so I'll have to see about getting that one later.

I am reading (for the 5th or so time) TFiOS. I don't think I have enjoyed a book so much in my life

I am also reading a book by Jean-Paul Sartre -a 20th century existentialist French philosopher- called "What is Literature?" which is very pretentious but also very interesting.

And, finally, this AMAZING book by a Greek writer called "The Number 31328" which I recommend to anyone out there who happens to be breathing!

I just started Daughter if Smoke and Bones by Laini Taylor. It's about a girl who's a little strange. Her hair is blue, naturally, she speaks inhuman languages, and draws monsters that may or may not be real. I think it's going to be fantasic.

I just finished Will Grayson, Will Grayson. I suggest you read it.

Gay Will Grayson meets straight Will Grayson at a porn shop. It's just... Wow. If you haven't read it, read it. It's marvelous and full of "fabulousness"

I am currently reading Jasper Jones by Craig Silvey. It's pretty awesome.

starting up on book three Grave Peril

I just finished Johnatan S. Foer - Extremely loud and incredibly close. I loved it. I am deciding on what to read next and if I should read more of Foers books.

Foer is great, definitely read more. My favorite from him is Everything is Illuminated. It's a bit confusing at first, because it's told in a lot of different parts, by at least 3 different people that I can remember off the top of my head. Once you get the hang of it though, it's very good.
