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.

not sure why i hadn't listed these... but i recently read the audio copy of David Lubar's Sleeping Freshmen Never Lie which i recommend as it's a book about books/writing.. 

i'm also almost done with Curse of the Spider King by Wayne Batson and Christopher Hopper...or is it Christopher Hopper and Wayne Batson?  :D

Finished reading the Hunger Games Trilogy. Finished "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close" which I found to be a brilliant piece of literature. For a bit of mindless laughter, I've started reading Brent Crawford's "Carter's Big Break". I previously read his "Carter Finally Gets It" and thoroughly enjoyed the workings of a 15 year old Will Carter's brain.

I'm currently reading "The Red Pony" by John Steinbeck.

Steinbeck never fails me.

I feel the same way :)

I'm reading A Game of Thrones. It's really good:)

Just finished going through some DC related backlogs, so right now I'm in the beginning of Wonder Boys and You Are Not A Gadget. No matter how many times I read Chabon I keep falling in love with his writing style.

I'm currently (re)reading A Game of Thrones, by George RR Martin. Next in the queue though is THE FAULT IN OUR STARS YEEEAAAAAAH.

it's not like i'm a published author, so i know that i have no room to talk, but i'm having issues with Venom and Song

i keep hearing really great things.

Catch-22 - Joseph Heller

I'm currently about 3/4 of the way through and so far it has been 90% frustration at the horrific attempts at satire and 10% wonder at how such a bad author could come up with such brilliant concepts.

got through White Night a couple days ago.  now i'm about 90 pages into Small Favor and i'm four(?) chapters in my reread of the first Harry Potter via audiobook

I am about 50 pages into "The Picture of Dorian Grey" and really enjoying it so far.
