Mmmm, feel like threading tonight, and I always thought this board was lacking a thread about books...

So what book are you currently reading ?

For me, it's Chuck Palahniuk's Stranger than fiction.

Memoirs of a Geisha  8) .. I'm actually re-reading it. I saw the movie and felt the book was much better because they cut out a lot of the scenes..

I just finished Stephen Kings Dark Tower series.

Fucking excellant. Seven big books...but well worth it.

AND Anthony Keidis' autobiography - Scar Tissue. Proves Flea is the greatest person EVER.

not reading anything right now.

last book was lunar park by brett easton ellis. highly recommend that to any fan of his.

i also recommend douglas adams to everyone, hes a hero of mine, and one the greatest science fictional authors of all time.

I've only read The Metamorphisis by him and found it depressing. Liked it, but depressing.

Can anyone recommend something in the style of David Sedaris?
..Yeah don't go there,
